Privacy of your information

The information you give MSD will be used to inform the Government about how to strengthen social cohesion. Your response will be analysed for themes, put into a report and shared with other Government agencies. MSD will also publish on its website a summary of the report. Both will be presented in such a way that you will not be identified.

The Ministry of Justice and the Department of Internal Affairs are also carrying out work to implement other recommendations from the Royal Commission of Inquiry. Please note your response may be shared with one of those agencies if MSD believe they are best suited to analyse a response that relates more to their work. Any information MSD shares with those agencies will be transferred to them securely. Please tell us if you do not wish for your information to be shared with them.

All information you give MSD will be collected, held, used and disclosed in accordance with the Privacy Act 2020. You have the right to access and correct any information MSD holds about you.

Please note your response may be subject to a request to MSD for information under the Official Information Act 1982. Please do not give any information in your response that could identify you or someone else. Please note also that when you submit your response MSD will also record your IP address for the purpose of detecting and responding to IT security incidents.

Making a submission in another language

This survey is available in several languages, including te reo Māori and New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL). You’re welcome to make a submission in the language of your choosing.

MSD will arrange for your response to be translated into English by a qualified translator so that MSD can analyse it. The translator will send back to MSD both your original response and the English version and will then delete this information from their system. Your information will be transferred between MSD and the translator securely and will be handled by the translator appropriately and in accordance with the Privacy Act 2020.
