Our commitment to protect your privacy.
How do we collect and hold personal information about you?
The personal information we collect, and hold will depend upon the type of products and services we provide to you or obtain from you. It may be contained in:
§ Information you give us when you request a product or service from us or enter a competition of ours; and
§ Records of communications and other interactions you have with us (including telephone, email and online).
§ This information may include your name, address, telephone numbers, email address, bank account and credit card details, date of birth, identification information and organization.
The personal information we request is generally optional, but if you choose not to provide personal information to us, we may not be able to fulfil your request or provide you with the product or service you require. Sometimes, however, there are situations when we are required by law to collect certain personal information from you and, if this is the case, we will take reasonable steps to inform you of the law that imposes this requirement.
You will always have the option to opt into certain services and to opt out of those services at any stage. This means you may change your mind at any stage about participating in any of our services.
NZ Consumables IT Supplies Ltd may contact you on an ongoing basis by telephone, mail, electronically or otherwise to provide you with marketing, advertising or other material about our products and services or to follow up on your interest in particular products and services, unless or until you tell us not to or we are restricted by law.
Who do we share this information with?
We may exchange information with third parties such as our service providers including our print service providers, mail houses, advertising agencies, accountants, auditors and lawyers, credit reporting and collection agencies, and providers of archival, banking, payment, data processing, data analysis, information broking, research, investigation, website, and technology services.
We may also disclose your personal information in corporate transactions involving the transfer of all or part of our assets (including debts) or business or in a corporate restructure.
We may also be required, or authorized by law, to disclose your personal information. For example, we may disclose your personal information to a court in response to a subpoena or to a relevant taxation agency. We may also disclose information to other persons where you have provided your consent for us to do so.
Some of the third parties to which we disclose personal information may be located overseas. We will conduct the necessary due diligence checks required, under the Privacy Act, to ensure that personal information being sent out of New Zealand will be subject to privacy safeguards that are comparable to ours.
How do we protect your personal information?
We hold personal information electronically and in hard copy form. We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, modification, or unauthorized access, use and disclosure. These steps include access control for our buildings, confidentiality obligations imposed on our employees and service providers and the use of security measures for computer system access.
Once we no longer require your personal information for any of the purposes for which it was collected, we will, subject to any legal obligations and responsibilities, take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify your personal information.
