What you should know

2Shakes makes it easier for you and the business who sent you the link to get started working together.
That means you have chosen a company that is using new technology to save you and them both time and cost.
We want you to know a little more about 2Shakes so you feel confident to enter your information:
  • Privacy By Design.  2Shakes started life in a NZ Government accelerator programme.  We place the protection of data and the privacy of information as a top priority in the design and operation of our solution. We adhere to the principal of Privacy by Design – which means that Privacy and protection of data were designed into our solution from the beginning.  2Shakes was developed to meet the New Zealand Governments strict requirements for Privacy and Security.
  • NZ Privacy Act requires that you only get asked for the information that is needed by the company you are dealing with. When you use 2Shakes the fields and selections you make only ask for required information. We have also designed our system in a way that prevents inadvertent sharing of private information like IRD numbers across different parties.
  • ACC Privacy Assessment. 2Shakes has passed a privacy assessment completed by NZ ACC.  This provides an independent confirmation that we deal with client private information appropriately.
  • DIA 105 Questions. 2Shakes has completed NZ Department of Internal Affairs 105 questionnaire on secure cloud computing for government.  This again provides an independent confirmation that we are storing client information safely and securely online.
  • Secure and Resilient. All information is securely protected on Microsoft’s world-class Azure cloud platform.  We have resilient geo-redundancy across two datacentres in Australia, maintaining data sovereignty since the information is in a 5-eyes country but not subject to the Patriot Act in the USA.
  • Electronic Signatures.  2Shakes’ electronic signatures have been assessed by Chapman Tripp to meet the NZ Electronic Transactions Act, and are accepted by organisations such as IRD, ACC, MBIE and any other that has a policy to accept electronic signatures.
  • Electronic ID Verification.  2Shakes integrates with Centrix SmartID for electronic ID Verification.  If you are being asked for electronic ID Verification, we ask for your consent to send your information to Centrix.  For more information please see Centrix SmartID.
