                4. How we store and protect Personal Information

                  We prioritise the security of your Personal Information whilst it is in our possession.  We may hold Personal Information in various forms, including but not limited to physical documents, electronic records, visual records and audio recordings. Physical files are kept securely inside our access controlled premises.  Electronic files are stored securely on protected information systems and are only accessible through our secure network. We maintain physical security over our paper and electronic data stores, and confidentiality agreements form part of the employment contracts for all of our staff members and contractors.

                  We take reasonable steps to:

                  (a) ensure that Personal Information we collect is accurate, up-to-date, complete and relevant, other than where it is only collected to provide advice in respect of a particular point in time, in which case we will seek to ensure it is accurate, complete and relevant as at that particular point in time;

                  (b) ensure that Personal Information we use or disclose is accurate, up-to-date, complete and relevant, having regard to the purposes for which Personal Information is used or disclosed;

                  (c) protect Personal Information from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure; and

                  We cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted via the internet.  As such, transmission of Personal Information via the internet is at your own risk and we cannot be held responsible for the security of such information.

                      (a) for the purpose(s) for which it was disclosed to or collected by us;

                      (b) facilitating interactions with you in the course of operating our business;

                      (c) responding to your enquiries and information requests;

                      (d) providing services to our clients if it was validly collected for that purpose;

                      (h) for secondary purposes where it would be reasonable to expect us to do so, and that secondary purpose is related (or directly related in the case of Sensitive Information) to the primary purpose for which it was collected; and

                      (i) for any other purposes for which you have consented from time to time.

                      We may hire third parties to provide limited services on our behalf, such as processing payment transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services.  We will only provide those third parties with the personal information they need to deliver the specific services and take reasonable steps to ensure that these third parties maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information except for the purposes for which it was supplied.

                      We may also disclose your personal information to authorised regulatory bodies or otherwise if required to do so by law.


                        6. Direct marketing

                          We will only send you direct marketing communications and information via mail, email and social media platforms about our Services with your consent. If you do not provide your consent to receive direct marketing communications, you may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us by contacting us at the details below or by using opt-out facilities provided in our communications. 


                            7. Overseas disclosure

                              We may need to disclose your Personal Information to our related entities overseas, in New Zealand. Any such disclosure will be done in accordance with the Act. It is unlikely that we will need to disclose or otherwise store your Personal Information overseas for any other reason.

                                        10. Data Retention

                                          We will only retain your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements.  We may retain your personal information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

                                          To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

                                          Where we anonymise your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you
