Online Privacy Statement
Generally, our intent is to only collect Personally Identifying Information (PII) provided voluntarily by visitors to our web sites so that we can offer information and/or services to those individuals. Please review the information provided in this Online Privacy Statement to learn more about how we collect, use, and share PII.
Collection and use of Personally Identifying Information
We obtain personal information about you if you choose to provide it. For example, to register for access to our premium on-line services or to receive email newsletters or notifications. In some cases, you may have previously provided your Performance Link NZ (if, for example you have been a client or business prospect with whom we have had previous dealings). By registering and/or submitting personal information on our web site, you are agreeing to the use of this information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your personal information is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional standards. For example, if you send us an email message requesting information about Performance Link NZ, we will use your email address and other information you supply to respond to your request. If you subscribe to our email newsletters and other notifications we will use your email address to send these to you.
Performance Link NZ generally collects only the personal information necessary to
fulfill visitors' requests. Where additional, optional information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.
Automatic collection of information
In some instances, Performance Link NZ automatically collects certain types of information when you visit our web sites and through emails that we may exchange. Automated technologies may include the use of web server logs to collect IP addresses, "cookies", and web beacons. The collection of this information allows us to better understand and improve the performance, usability and effectiveness of our website and the services we provide as well as enabling us to evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing activities.
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognise and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which visitors appear to originate may be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information is also used in aggregate form to conduct web site trend and performance analysis.
A web beacon is a small image file on a web page that can be used to collect certain information from your computer, such as an IP address, the time the content was viewed, a browser type, and the existence of cookies previously set by the same server. Performance Link NZ only uses web beacons in accordance with applicable laws. You have the option to render some web beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies. The web beacon may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address but cookie information will not be recorded. In some of our newsletters and other communications, we may confirm a recipient's email address through embedded links within the messages. We collect this information to gauge user interest and to enhance future user experiences.
Sharing and transfer of personally identifying information
We do not share personal information with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required or permitted by law or professional standards. In some instances, Performance Link NZ may also share PII about you with various outside companies or service providers or vendors working on our behalf to help fulfil your specific requests. Performance Link NZ may store PII in a jurisdiction other than where you are based. By providing PII the Performance Link NZ web site, visitors are consenting to this transfer and/or storage of their data across geographic borders.
Performance Link NZ understands the importance of protecting children's privacy, especially in an online environment. In particular, our sites are not designed for or directed at children under the age of 13. It is our policy never to knowingly collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 13, except as part of an engagement to provide professional services.
You have several choices regarding your use of our site. In general, you are not required to submit any PII when you visit our web site, but Performance Link NZ may require you to provide certain PII in order for you to receive additional information about our services and/or to utilise our premium on-line services. If you opt-in for particular services or communications, such as an e-newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will try to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.
If you have submitted personal information to Performance Link NZ, under most circumstances you have the right to reasonable access to that data to correct any inaccuracies. You can also make a request to update or remove information about you by using the contact details on this website and we will make all reasonable and practical efforts to comply with your request, so long as it is consistent with applicable law and professional standards.
