The Canadian Privacy Act is very similar in many respects to the New Zealand
one, slightly more strict I understand, but based on the same OECD Privacy
Guidelines and in full accord with the EU Directive on Privacy (NZ is
delinquent in some respects according to the EU).
I am not sure quite what the position is wrt persons from outside Canadian
jurisdiction but Canadian law may be more likely to accommodate concerned NZ
citizens with info held on them in Canada than vice versa, as I understand

either if the information is
"held by" a New Zealand agency. I.E. if the list is a UoW list but
someone else hosts the archives it's probably still covered.
I'm not convinced I understand how the UoW could entice me to edit
my archives, speaking as a resident of Canada, and with reference
to an archive hosted in the US.
But I'm happy to host the list too, if that helps :)
