Note: The list above outlines the most commonly requested and readily accessible member information we hold, but is not exhaustive. Members may request other information which may include their personal information.

In some cases we may redact or withhold information to ensure what’s released doesn’t compromise an ongoing investigation by a government agency, create a security risk, or prejudice Trade Me’s commercial position.

Sometimes we’ll also need to charge for the supply of information. For example, if the request is very broad and the information requested is likely to take significant time and resources to find and prepare. In these situations, we’ll get in touch to discuss your request and give you an estimate of the cost before doing anything.
