Contact Tracing FAQs

+What is the data you collect when I register used for?

We collect personal information so that we can count and identify visitors to the Museum, as well as controlling the visitor entry numbers. For example, we need your mobile phone number to text you when you can enter the Museum. We may also need to provide data in relation to your location (or intended location) to government bodies to help trace the spread of infectious disease if that is required by law. The only entity who will be able to access personal information other than stated, is the Ministry of Health for the purpose of Tracking & Tracing. You have the right to request access to your own information and this can be done directly with NextUp. You can access the full Next Up Privacy Policy here.

+How long is the data kept for after I’ve visited?

Your data will be kept for 8 weeks which is in accordance with the Government guidelines.
