Privacy classifications

What the privacy classifications mean for our data.

We have three privacy classifications:

Public

All public data visible on our websites and public registers.

Restricted

Data that is created or captured by the Companies Office in relation to the registry process for an entity, but which is not viewable on the public register.

Confidential

Data that has legislation restricting the disclosure of particular elements, the release of which is subject to particular statutory restrictions. Some examples are director date and place of birth (which is collected under the Companies Act 1993) and limited partner names, residential addresses and date and place of birth (which is collected under the Limited Partnerships Act 2008).
