I love reading case notes from Privacy Commissioners in other parts of the world to see how they apply their countries’ regulations. There’s a new decision from New Zealand’s Privacy Commissioner that will probably be of interest to parents of American schoolchildren as it involves how school personnel handled a student’s medical information.  Spoiler alert: I was a bit surprised that the parents’ complaint was upheld, and I wondered whether there might be any unintended consequences of the complaint such as damage to the relationship between the school and the parents, or teachers not refreshing their memory of what to do in a medically urgent situation. 

See what you think when you read the decision.
