Privacy Awareness Week was held between 3 and 9 May 2009.

A variety of events were planned including a Chris Slane Privacy Cartoon Exhibition 'No Laughing Matter' in Auckland on 7 May.

TradeMe kindly ran a survey on its website during PAW "Who's using your information?" using creative banners based on the Facebook Friend cartoon.  Visitors to its website were asked three privacy-related questions.

To celebrate Māori Language Week (July 2009), the Privacy Commissioner will launch Whakaarotia kātahi ka tuku atu ai – a privacy video aimed at young people.  The video was produced by the Asia-Pacific privacy forum (APPA) of which New Zealand is a part. The South Korean and Hong Kong members of APPA have also translated the video into Korean and Chinese.
