The Privacy Commissioner and the Government Chief Data Steward have jointly developed six key principles to support safe and effective data analytics. These six principles are intended to help agencies, and guide our thinking to data analytics activities, including algorithmic decision-making. Using these principles in systems and thinking means stronger, more secure, and safer data use. 

The Principles for the Safe and Effective Use of Data and Analytics guidance is available here and also on the Stats NZ website
