Privacy laws get long overdue tidyup over Motorist Registration (NZ)

, posted: 4-Oct-2007 07:16

A Land Transport Amendment Bill will ensure greater privacy for car owners.

No longer will anyone be able to walk into a post-office and get all your private details from your Registration plate, from here on in, the details will only be handed over to groups cleared by the transport Minister.

Ok, thats a big step in the right direction.


What I would much rather see is the requirement to be approved by the privacy commissioners office,
say the companies must be audited for ethical private information use.

moving further, I would like to see a rating system introduced, where any company that requests any information off you must display their "Ethical Treatment of Privacy" rating,

It could be a star based system, much like a hygiene  certificate that a restaurant needs to display.

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!

Who knows! 

but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!

I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Mobile Devices
*general and specific ramblings
*Dvorak Keyboard

Mobile devices and more
