1. Application and purpose
We recognise the importance of maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information, and this document explains how we handle your personal information and how we comply with the requirements of the New Zealand Privacy Act 1993.
2. Collecting information about you
We will not collect or monitor personal information about you without your consent. The only personal information we collect is what you tell us about yourself and information about how you use our website, for example by what pages you visit on our website and your IP address. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. Any further collection of your personal information than that explained here will only occur with your express consent.
4. Using and disclosing your personal information
Our purpose in collecting information about you is to provide you with services that you request and to operate our business efficiently. The way that we will use your personal information will normally be obvious from the circumstances of its collection.
The circumstances in which we may disclose information about you to another organisation are limited, but include:
- when required by law;
- for marketing purposes when you have given your consent;
- to an organisation that is an affiliate of Outdoor Sports New Zealand Ltd;
- when we believe it necessary to provide you with a service which you have requested, such as contacting you about your online order, or delivering the goods you ordered to you.
- to protect our rights, property or personal safety or those of another customer or any member of the public; and
- in the event that the assets and operations of our business are transferred to another party as a going concern.
5. Service providers
Like many businesses, we use a range of service providers to help us maximise the quality and efficiency of our services and our business operations. This means that other individuals and organisations will sometimes have access to personal information held by us and may use it on our behalf. We require our service providers to respect the confidentiality of information that they handle on our behalf, and not to keep this information or use it for unauthorised purposes.
6. We will not use your e-mail address for spam purposes
We may contact you at the email or other address which you provide to us in order to provide you with updated information about our products and services and other information about other products and services which we think you may have an interest in. If you do not wish to receive this information, please email us at with a request for us to remove your details from our database. We will endeavour to do this as quickly as possible.
