Information About Us
We are regulated (as relevant) by the Information Privacy Principles, contained within the Privacy Act 1993 (Privacy Act).
Collection of Your Personal Information
"Personal Information" means any information from which your identity is apparent or can be reasonably ascertained.
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of your Personal Information, which could include:
Collection of Your Sensitive Information
We collect minimal amounts of sensitive information (which could include information about your race, ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, political opinions, or biometric data). We will only collect sensitive information (for example, information regarding your health) which is provided to us by you (or is provided to us with your consent) and which is reasonably necessary to fulfil our legal obligations.
How Your Personal Information is Collected
We use various methods to collect your personal information, including:
When you contact us by phone, email or social media we may keep a record of that communication.
How We Use or Disclose Your Personal Information
We collect, use and disclose your Personal Information for a range of purposes. These purposes depend largely upon your relationship with us. Most commonly, we will use your Personal Information for the following purposes:
The types of persons and organisations to which we may disclose your Personal Information include the following:
Unsolicited Personal Information
We do not generally receive any Personal Information without requesting it.
If within a reasonable time, we determine that the unsolicited Personal Information received by us is not reasonably necessary for one or more of our functions or activities or where it is it collected by unlawful and unfair means or without your consent, we will destroy or de-identify your Personal Information as soon as is practicable, but only if it is lawful and reasonable to do so and if the information is not contained in a government record.
Security of Your Personal Information
We take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information from misuse, interference and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We do this by means of various physical and electronic security measures, including restricting physical access to Our offices and implementing several technological and security policies and procedures.
We may use servers outside New Zealand (for example Australia, USA or UK) to route through and store your Personal Information. A number of policies and procedures are in place to ensure the safety and secure storage of your Personal Information handled and stored by Us.
We are required by law to retain various types of records for different periods, depending on their contents.
We will therefore keep Personal Information for as long as we reasonably consider we may need to in connection with those obligations.
Where we no longer require your Personal Information for the purpose for which this information was collected, we will take all steps reasonable in the circumstances to destroy the information.
Use of Your Personal Information for Direct Marketing
We only use or disclose your Personal Information for direct marketing purposes (that is, to communicate with you directly to promote our goods and services) when we have your permission to do so, or where you have a reasonable expectation that your Personal Information will be used for this purpose and where you have not opted out from Us contacting you.
In cases where you would not expect Us to use your Personal Information for direct marketing purposes or the information has been collected by Us from a third party, we will use or disclose your information for direct marketing purposes with your consent and within each communication provide you with a simple and obvious means by which you may easily opt out or unsubscribe from receiving further communications from us.
Access to Your Personal Information
You may request details of the Personal Information we hold about you by writing to us. We will respond to your request within a reasonable period of time and give you access to the information in the manner requested by you if it is reasonable and practicable to do so.
In general, we will allow you access to the Personal Information we hold about you, unless a specific exception applies, and will take such steps as are reasonable to provide you with the information in the form you require.
If we deny you access to any Personal Information following an access request or provide you with access not in the manner requested by you, we will give you a written notice that will set out the reasons for the denial and the mechanisms available to you to complain about our refusal.
We will not charge any fee for the provision of this information, except when we are required to spend an unreasonable amount of time or effort to provide you with the information. If there is a charge, it will not be excessive and will not apply to the making of the request.
Where your consent has already been provided, you may withdraw consent to our use of your Personal Information at any time. We will respond to your request within a reasonable period of time and give you access to the information in the manner requested by you if it is reasonable to do so.
We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information that is in our possession is accurate, up-to-date and complete. If you are aware that any of your Personal Information is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date, please inform us so that we can update our records.
