Privacy policy

The collection and use of personal information by the Westport Harbour is regulated by the Privacy Act 2020.

Under this Act, personal information may be collected only for a lawful purpose connected with a function or activity of the port and only if necessary for that purpose. Such information must, as a general rule, be collected directly from the individual concerned and that person must be told why the information is needed.

Westport Harbour will use personal information provided by website visitors only for the reasons it was given. The port will not share personal information with any third parties unless written permission is given by the website visitor concerned.

All enquiries about or formal requests for information in terms of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987, or the Privacy Act 2020 should be in writing to:

Westport Harbour

Lower Palmerston Street

Westport 7825

For more detailed information about the Privacy Act you can refer to the Privacy Commissioner's website.
