Trade Me 2016 Transparency Report released

Police Enquiry By Type Break Down Trade Me

Like many NZ-based companies, we receive enquiries for information from NZ government agencies to assist them with their responsibilities to maintain the law.

We've put together our fourth 'Trade Me Transparency Report' to give insight into how we work with government agencies to help keep our website trusted and safe.

This transparency report details the number of enquiries from government agencies for information from us in the year from 1 July 2015 to 1 June 2016. 

We have expanded our discussion section this year to include a bit more commentary on topical privacy issues, including whether the Privacy Act is appropriate for information releases to government agencies and whether we should routinely notify our members when their information is released.
