    Default Hundreds of tenants have requested their personal information from TINZ

    Appears to be an initiative from Renters United which has provided a form to send to TINZ to make a request under the Privacy Act to find out if they were in the TINZ tenant database, request a copy of their information and request the removal of information gathered without their consent. Renters United are not happy with the TINZ response and have replied in rebuttal.

    More info here:

    Haha that's funny. They object to TINZ confirming their identity? Good on TINZ.

    TINZ is good for good tenants. If tenants are bad then landlords will of course give bad ratings. It will be helpful for other landlords. The TT is not fair for landlords. TINZ actually serves better than the TT for landlords. Good on TINZ!!

    Given how prevalent identity theft is online I'd be concerned about any company which was publicising or sharing my ID. Sounds like TINZ are struggling to operate within NZ law

    Given that it is not all that difficult to spoof e-mail addresses, this assertion is somewhat dubious.
    However, this obligation will be met by their sending of an email from their own address (many of which you will hold on file). We note s 24 of the Electronic Transactions Act 2002.
    Try Radenbrea Studios for hand-made designer jewellery. Especially if you're looking for a great gift for your lady love.
    Want a great looking concrete swimming pool in Hawke's Bay? Designer Pools will do the job for you!

    AFAIK information about tenants is only available to members, apart from requests from tenants themselves. Plus most of the information held is publicly available anyway.

    I see they fail to note Section 22 (2) as it is obvious that TINZ has refused the option of an electronic signature.
