You may browse and access information contained on this website without providing personally identifiable information. Where you voluntarily provide personally identifiable information (e.g. if you apply to be provided certain services by ENZ or you email ENZ), we will hold your personal information in accordance with the requirements set out in the New Zealand Privacy Act 1993. In particular:
(a) your personal information will be used only for the purposes for which it is collected and will be retained only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected (including any time that we are required by law to retain such information); and
(b) we will not release your personal information to any third party except where required by law, where you have authorised us to do so, or where disclosure is connected to the purpose for which the information was collected.
ENZ may use your personal information:
(a) to assist in providing the services or information requested by you;
(b) to provide further information to you about other websites and services which ENZ considers may be of interest to you;
(c) to ensure that you are shown the information that is most relevant to you and your interests;
(d) to address feedback or complaints and resolve disputes; and

In order to provide you with better and more relevant services and information, ENZ may compile information about email responses and website usage. This information helps ENZ better understand the interests and site usage patterns of visitors to this website and also what types of content may help to encourage visits. ENZ may also log your IP address whenever you use the site. This is for system administration and troubleshooting purposes only. In both our HTML and text update emails, we track clicks to find out which links in the email were clicked on. In HTML update emails we also track whether the email itself has been viewed. Any personal information described in this clause 3 will only be used by ENZ in aggregate form so that individual users cannot be identified.
Where ENZ holds personal information about you, you have a right to access and correct that personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act 1993. If you want to access or correct your personal information, please contact ENZ’s Webmaster (see clause 9 below) and he/she will tell you how to make a request and if any charges will apply.
ENZ will use all reasonable endeavours to effect and maintain adequate security measures to safeguard the personal information ENZ hold from loss or unauthorised access, use, modification or disclosure. However, as the internet is an open network, ENZ does not warrant or guarantee that your personal information is safe from loss or unauthorised access, use, modification or disclosure, either during transmission to or from ENZ’s websites, or when held by us.
Other websites that are linked to this website may have privacy policies that govern the use of information collected by those other websites. ENZ is not responsible for any information collected by those other websites, or the privacy or data protection practices of the operators of those other websites.
