This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) provides information in relation to the basis upon which we collect, hold, use and disclose your Personal Information. In this Policy, “you” or “your” means the individual providing Personal Information to us and Personal Information has the same meaning as in the Privacy Act 2020 (Act). In essence, it is information relating to an individual which can be used to identify that individual or which is linked to an identified individual.


1. Applicable Policy terms

Use and disclosure of Personal Information collected from you is subject to the Policy in effect at the time such Personal Information is collected, unless otherwise agreed.

We will review this Policy from time to time to make sure it takes into account new laws and technology, and any changes to how we operate.

Should we decide to change our Policy we will post all changes on the Website so that you are always kept up to date.


2. Collection of Personal Information

We collect Personal Information in order to provide the Website and otherwise conduct our business in connection with the Website, and to meet our legal obligations. Personal Information is collected from persons who sign up with us (Registered Users) and persons who use the Website without signing up with us (General Users). Registered Users comprise portal users, contributors and authors.

We collect your Personal Information when you use the Website, when you contact us (including to update your Personal Information), if you sign up with us, if you submit listings or articles, if you use interactive features on the Website (eg favourites), and when you interact with the marketing communications we send you. We collect additional information from users that sign up with us as follows, depending on what type of Registered User you are:

Portal User: When you register an account on the Website and/or engage in our services provided from the Website, we collect and hold the following Personal Information: your first name, email address, account login information and preferences for your personal profile. General location information (but not home address) may also be collected.

Contributor: Contributors must be portal users, so we collect the Personal Information set out at paragraph 2.2.1 in that regard. Contact information, namely your last name and a phone number are also collected. In addition, when you create a listing, regardless of whether it is in draft, pending or active, we collect information relating to the listing, such as description, location, pricing, contact details, images and your user details. Such contributor information may be or contain Personal Information.

Author: Authors must be portal users, so we collect the Personal Information set out at paragraph 2.2.1 in that regard. Contact information, namely your last name and a phone number are also collected. In addition, when you submit a news article, regardless of whether it is in draft, pending or active, we collect information relating to the article, which may include text, images, author name and biography. Such author information may be or contain Personal Information.

3. If you provide Personal Information about other persons

If you provide Personal Information about another individual, eg in a listing provided by a contributor, then that Personal Information will also be subject to this Policy. You must only do so if you have that individual’s permission and they are aware of the information in this Policy.

In each such a case, references to “you” and “your” in this Policy mean the relevant individual to whom the Personal Information relates.

4. Our use of Social Media

We use third party social media services like Instagram and Facebook. Your use of these third party services is entirely optional. We may make use of any information that you make public relating to our business, when you use any such third party services, for the purposes of our business.

We may also collect from third party social media services advertising information gathered or generated by such social media services to provide listings relevant to you. Where such advertising information is your Personal Information it will only be provided to us where the social media service has the right to provide that information to us.

All third party social media services are governed by the privacy policies and/or practices of the relevant third party, for which we are not responsible. If you do not want to provide Personal Information to any of those third parties, or make information publicly available, you should not use their particular service.

6. Marketing Communications

We may disclose your Personal Information to third party providers we use to assist us to send you marketing communications. We provide those third parties with your name and email. Such third parties may be offshore and may not be subject to privacy laws as comprehensive as in New Zealand. However, we only use providers that we are permitted to use under the Act.

Where marketing communications we initiate are sent by electronic means the relevant third party (where applicable) will collect information about your interaction with the communication. The information collected includes whether you opened the email, the links you clicked on, the webpages viewed and the dates and times of such access and activity. Information about the device used to access the marketing communication may also be collected. The third party provides or makes available this information to us for the various purposes outlined in this Policy. They also hold this information on our behalf.

While these third parties are primarily collecting this information on our behalf, some of these third parties also use the information that we provide them and which is collected from your interaction with marketing communications for their legitimate business interests, such as to provide, support and improve the services they provide and to undertake data analytics projects. However, we do not permit them to use your Personal Information provided by us to market their or any other person’s services to you.

We currently use MailChimp for the purpose of sending our marketing communications. MailChimp is located in the United States. To understand the ways in which MailChimp collect, hold, use and disclose personal information, please read its privacy policy, which is available here.

If you do not agree with how MailChimp will handle your Personal Information then you will need to unsubscribe from receiving marketing communications from us.

We will not be able to send marketing communications to you if you unsubscribe or do not agree to our use of third parties to assist us with our marketing communications.

7. Cookies and Similar Technologies

Our Website may use cookies or similar technologies. A cookie is a small data file stored on a device with a web browser (e.g. computer or iPad). It can contain information about your device, your IP address, your session, and the online activity on the Website of anyone using your device.

We currently use functional/required, analytics/performance and third party/advertising cookies.

Functional and required cookies are always used, which allow us to provide the functionality of the Website to you. Analytics and performance cookies are used on the Website to view site traffic, activity and other data. We currently use Google Analytics for analytics purposes.

While Google is primarily collecting data on our behalf, it may also use the data which is collected for its legitimate business interests, including to improve its own services, and to maintain the security of its systems. To understand the ways that Google Analytics may use your data, please read its policy available here.

We also use Facebook pixel on the Website. This is a third party cookie that provides information about the webpages you view on the Website to Facebook to enable it to tailor advertising to you. For instance, this cookie enables us to remarket the listings on the Website to you when you are on other websites. The information is collected and held by Facebook. We can access analytical data and insights reports from Facebook in connection with the information collected using this cookie, which we use in accordance with this Policy. To understand the way Facebook manages this information, please read its policy available here. Facebook also provides more information about the Facebook pixel here.

for us or other authorised agencies to detect, investigate, prevent or address fraud, security or technical issues;

9. Management of Personal Information

If we provide any functionality on the Website that involves you making a payment to us, we may use a third party service provider to facilitate your payment. Any such third party provider may need to collect, hold, use and disclose your information to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. They may also wish to use the information they collect for their legitimate business interests, such as to provide, support and improve the services they provide and to undertake data analytics projects. However, we would not permit them to use your Personal Information provided by us to market their or any other person’s services to you. You should check their privacy policy once you are redirected to their website to make the payment. If you do not agree with their privacy policy you should contact us to make other arrangements for the payment required. Unless other arrangements are made, if you do not agree to the privacy policy of such third party service provider then you will not be able to use the functionality of the Website that involves you making a payment to us.

The Act requires us to take reasonable steps to protect the security of Personal Information we hold. We take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information held from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure, for example by use of physical security and restricted access to electronic records.
