Treaty of Waitangi

Privacy Foundation New Zealand commitment to Te Tiriti O Waitangi (Treaty of Waitangi)

PFNZ is committed to being responsive to Māori as tangata whenua and recognising Te Tiriti O Waitangi as New Zealand’s founding document.

This means:

  • PFNZ advocates for tino rangatiratanga of Māori over their tangible and intangible taonga.
  • PFNZ supports the development of privacy laws and policy that accords with Te Tiriti O Waitangi.
  • PFNZ seeks to work in partnership with Māori to advance positive privacy outcomes for Aotearoa.


This is our first effort and we invite suggestions for improvement​.

We also hope to have a Te Reo translation soon.
