  5. Commercial electronic messages / SPAM 
    1. The Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007 prohibits the sending of spam with a New Zealand link (i.e. messages sent to, from, or within New Zealand). The Act refers to spam as ‘unsolicited commercial electronic messages’. The Act covers email, fax, instant messaging, and mobile/smart phone text (TXT). We collect your email address (and if relevant, an SMS number) in order to:
      • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions;
      • Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders;
      • Send you additional information related to your product and/or service;
      • Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.
    2. To be in accordance with Act, we agree to the following:
      • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses;
      • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way;
      • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters;
      • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used;
      • Honour opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly;
      • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email;
      • If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us or follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
  6. Data Protection
    1. Your information is held in the strictest of confidence and never willingly divulged to any unauthorised party.
    2. Our website uses a secure HTTPS / SSL encryption protocol to transmit your data to and from our website server database which in turn utilises multiple layers of security to protect stored data.
    3. Our website further obfuscates e.g. passwords so that these cannot easily be seen.
    4. We do not hold or process any credit card data on our website because we use third party (external) payment processors that utilise encryption.
    5. Our service providers (webhost, email providers, external data management or suppliers etc) have provided assurance that they utilise high security standards with best practice methods.
  7. Transfer of Personal Data
    1. Our direct service providers (e.g. webhost or email providers) may utilise multiple data centres and additional third-party service partners in the delivery of their products and services, which ultimately allow us to deliver ours. In particular, through our partners, we may utilise a global network of servers (known as a CDN) where data exists “in the cloud” in multiple global locations.
    2. Such methods are used to provide the high-speed data transfer, along with data backup facilities and security screening / access restriction.  Our ultimate goal is to provide you, the end-user with convenient products and services – but with your data protected.  Where any personal data is stored or transferred outside of NZ, our service providers employ best-practice standards to ensure comparable safeguards exist in order to comply with New Zealand privacy laws (2020).
    3. We and our service providers take steps to ensure all data receives the same level of protection as if it remained within NZ, including by entering into robust data transfer agreements that satisfy NZ standards. The primary countries where personal data “in the cloud” may be transferred or stored, is Australia, New Zealand, UK and USA – although this list can change depending on different factors.
    4. We reserve the right to share any information that you provide which is not deemed personal data or is not otherwise subject to contractual restrictions – or where you have expressly indicated that you are OK with that.
  8. Retention of your Personal Data
    1. We apply a general rule of keeping personal data only for as long as required to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected. We may choose to retain your personal data (in a safe and secure environment) where we believe it will benefit you as our ongoing customer and to maintain an accurate record of your dealings with us.
    2. In some circumstances, we may retain personal data for other periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, tax and accounting requirements, or if required to do so by a legal process, legal authority, or other governmental entity having authority to make the request, for so long as required.
  9. Your choices
    1. If any information we hold about you is incorrect, please contact us to request that it be updated.
    2. If you decide not to provide us with your personal information, we will not be able to provide products and or services to you.
    3. If at any time, you wish to be removed from our newsletter or public areas of our site, you may request that and we will respect your wishes.
    4. You also have the right to request a copy of the information we have on record for you. You may also request that data be deleted.
  10. Children
    1. The Site is not for use by children under the age of 16 years and we do not knowingly collect, store, share or use the personal data of children under 16 years. If you are under the age of 16 years, please do not provide any personal data, even if prompted by the Site to do so.
    2. If you are under the age of 16 years and you have provided personal data, please ask your parent(s) or guardian(s) to notify us and we will delete all such personal data.
  11. Security
    1. We make reasonable efforts to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party ‘hackers’ from illegally obtaining this information.
    2. We take all reasonable measures to prevent such breaches of security, but given the resourcefulness of cyber-criminals we are unable to guarantee 100% security. You assume the risk of such breaches to the extent that they occur despite our reasonable security measures.
