The decision to disclose or use footage collected by RainbowYOUTH's CCTV cameras will be made on a case-by-case basis by authorised staff members, or if the NZ Police have issued a warrent to RainbowYOUTH for CCTV footage or if there is a law requiring RainbowYOUTH to disclose the footage.
RainbowYOUTH reserves the right to refuse such requests if:
The information is not readily retrievable (i.e.: the individual does not specify a reasonable time or location that they want to view)
The footage is being used by the NZ Police to investigate a crime (in this situation, RainbowYOUTH must defer to NZ Police to access and grant access to the footage by the individual)
To protect the privacy of others shown in the footage: requested by an individual, RainbowYOUTH may grant access to footage only after they have sighted certified photographic identification of the individual requesting the footage (i.e. a NZ Drivers License or Passport), and if they can make a positive identification of the individual in the footage against the photographic identification provided by the individual.
Footage collected by RainbowYOUTH CCTV cameras may only be distributed by staff to individuals in two ways:
Via a written description of what they are doing in the footage (this is the preferred method of distributing the footage, as it is the least likely to breach the privacy of anyone else involved)
By organising a time when the individual can visit the RainbowYOUTH drop-in centre to view the requested footage
