Agreement to privacy statement

NAIT will collect personal information about you when you register to use the NAIT Information System, and when you enter data regarding stock movements of animals with which you are associated. All personal information we collect is collected for the purpose of administering the National Animal Identification and Tracing Act 2012 (the NAIT Act), and is governed by that Act and by the Privacy Act 2020.

Providing personal information is compulsory pursuant to the NAIT Act. A failure to provide information as required under the Act, or providing false information, is an offence.

You are entitled to seek access to, and correction of, any personal information we hold about you.



If any provision of these Terms of Use or its application to any person or circumstances is, to any extent, held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason by any court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction:

  • such provision will continue to apply, to the maximum extent permitted by law, to other persons or circumstances not affected by the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability
  • the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision will be deemed to be amended to reflect the original intention (as determined from this NAIT Information System) as nearly as possible in accordance with applicable law in respect of those persons or circumstances giving rise to the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability
  • the remainder of these Terms of Use shall continue in full force and effect.

Revisions to terms

We may revise these Terms of Use at any time. Any such revisions will take effect once notified through a post or other announcement on the NAIT Information System detailing the respect(s) in which the Terms have changed.
