Privacy Policy

The Commission may refer to the views it receives in its advice, but will anonymise material from private individuals in that advice. The Commission keeps all submissions as part of the official records.

The Law Commission’s processes are public, and it is subject to the Official Information Act 1982. So, if someone asks for your submission the Commission will normally provide it. The Commission will consider any requests for withholding information on grounds of confidentiality or for any other reason according to the Official Information Act 1982.

The Law Commission also complies with the Privacy Act 1993, which governs how it collects, holds, uses and discloses personal information you provide. You have the right to access and correct your personal information.

The Commission will use the views it receives to inform its consideration of the issues that arise in this review, and in any future reviews that cover the same or related issues.

If you do not want the Commission to release all or part of your submission (including any personal details provided) or for us to refer to it in any Commission publication, please advise which parts should be withheld and the reasons. The Commission will take your views into account when assessing whether or not it is required to release the information.
