How Upper Hutt City will protect your personal information
We will use the personal information you share with us to ensure the content and services that we provide on Council sites are tailored to your current and future needs.
If you provide Upper Hutt City with your mailing address or telephone number, that information will only be used for the purpose that it was collected and will not be disclosed to any other parties. In most cases, where you are registering for a specific item your details will not be retained past that time that the service has been provided.
