Our policy

From time to time we collect, retain and use personal information provided by website users that we consider will help us to perform and fulfil our statutory duties, functions and purposes or understand general needs and preferences of users so that we can provide enhanced services.

Where we do so, Te Tumu Paeroa maintains high standards to safeguard personal information and respect the rights of users of our website in accordance with the Privacy Act 1993 ("the Act").

Personal information you give us

Personal information such as your name and email address is collected only when we explicitly require it and you agree to provide it. For example you may need to provide us with information so we can contact you, or to allow you to access parts of our website if you are a client.

Unless we otherwise specify it is entirely voluntary whether you provide us with information we request. However if not providing the information would put you at a significant disadvantage we will advise you of this.

The parts of the site that hold information personally identifying you will be able to be accessed by  Te Tumu Paeroa employees and agents.

Although Te Tumu Paeroa automatically gathers generic information to assist with making its website useful and interesting for clients and other visitors, it does not collect personal information about those who merely browse our website.

We will only use the information for a purpose other than for which you provided in the limited circumstances provided by the Act.

In general terms we do not sell, publish, give away or otherwise disclose your personal information except with your authority, or where you have provided the information to us for this purpose or the disclosure is directly related to the purposes for its collection. There are other limited circumstances provided in the Act which may justify disclosing your personal information to third parties.
