A business that supports our website, products and services may be located outside of New Zealand (the country where we are incorporated) and also outside of the country where you are located. This means that the personal information we collect may be transferred to, and stored in, a country outside of New Zealand and the country where you are located.
If you are located in the European Union (EU), your personal information may be transferred outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). Under the GDPR, the transfer of personal information to a country outside the EEA may take place where the European Commission has decided that the country ensures an adequate level of protection. In the absence of an adequacy decision, we may transfer personal information if other appropriate safeguards are in place.
If you are located in the United Kingdom (UK) your personal information may be transferred outside of the UK. Under the UK GDPR, the transfer of Personal Information to a country outside the UK may take place where the European Commission (as at 31 December 2020) or the UK government has decided that the country ensures an adequate level of protection. In the absence of an adequacy decision, we may transfer personal information if other appropriate safeguards are in place.
Where we transfer personal information outside the EEA or UK, it will only be transferred to countries that have been identified as providing adequate protection for EEA/UK data, or to a third party where approved transfer mechanisms are in place to protect your personal information (e.g. by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses). For further information, please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the personal information we collect is processed in New Zealand. New Zealand is recognised by the European Commission as a country that has an adequate level of data protection and we rely on this decision in transferring personal information to New Zealand.
As required by applicable law, we will take steps to keep your personal information safe from loss, unauthorised activity, or other misuse. We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risks inherent in processing personal information.
You play an important role in keeping your personal information secure by maintaining the confidentiality of any password and accounts used in relation to our products and services. We recommend that you use multi-factor authentication on all authentication services you use to access our services. You should not disclose your password to third parties. Please notify us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account or any other breach of security.
Subject to certain grounds for refusal under applicable law, you have the right to access your personal information that we hold and to request a correction to your personal information. Before you exercise this right, we will need evidence to confirm that you are the individual to whom the personal information relates.
Where you request a correction, if we think the correction is reasonable and we are reasonably able to change your personal information, we will make the correction. In all other cases, we will take reasonable steps to make a note of the personal information that was the subject of your correction request.
If you want to exercise either of the above rights, email us at email@example.com. Your email should provide evidence of who you are and set out the details of your request (e.g. the personal information to be corrected and the correction that you are requesting).
Subject to applicable law, we may charge you our reasonable costs of providing to you copies of your personal information or correcting that information.
While we take reasonable steps to maintain secure internet connections, if you provide us with personal information over the internet, the provision of that information is at your own risk.
The personal information that we collect and use will not be kept longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is collected, or for the duration required for compliance with applicable law, whichever is longer.
Lawful Basis For Processing Personal Information
Our lawful basis for processing (as that term is defined in the GDPR and UK GDPR) personal information that we collect, use and disclose depends on the personal information collected and the context in which we collect it.
Generally, we collect personal information from you where we have your consent, where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, or where processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests (except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms).
Where we process personal information based on your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time.
Despite the above, we may process your personal information where such processing is necessary for compliance with applicable laws.
If you have any questions about the legal basis on which we process personal information or need further information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
