Privacy Policy

Welcome

Welcome to www.kidslink.co.nz, a website owned by KidsLink Ltd. This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via this site. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site.

Your Consent

By using this site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the KidsLink Terms of Use. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

About Children

This site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information via this site from visitors in this age group. We do, however, collect information about children from users. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to Web sites.

Vulnerable Children Act 2014

KidsLink is committed to keeping children healthy and safe. We may share information with appropriate agencies involved in a child's life if sharing that information will protect or improve the safety, health or well-being of a child. By law, we can always share information with CYF's and Police. Further information can be found in our child and young persons' protection policy.

Collected Information

Information you provide: we collect personal information about you when you register for events, subscribe to our newsletter, enter KidsLink promotions or complete surveys. We also collect personal information about you when you otherwise communicate with us. This personal information may include your name, contact details, email address, and other details necessary for us to provide the information or services you have requested.

Passive information collected: we receive information when you interact with and use our website. We use server logs and different web analytic tools to help us record this information (including ‘cookies’, ‘pixel tags’ and other anonymous identifiers). These tools may gather information such as what browser and operating system you use, the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave our website, search terms, your location and what content is viewed when visiting or registering for services on our website. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this site might not work without cookies.

We also use third party service providers (for example, Google) to help us track the effectiveness of our website, and generate visitor traffic.

Links to other websites

Our website also contains links to third party websites. We have no control over the privacy policies of such third parties and we encourage you to review such policies prior to providing any information to or purchasing goods or services from such third parties.

Use and disclosure of information

Ensuring and respecting your privacy is important to us. We do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share your personal information with third parties unless one of the following circumstances apply:

With your consent: we may share personal information with third parties when we have your express consent to do so.

With our contractors and service providers: we sometimes engage other trusted businesses and persons to provide services and perform functions on our behalf. We may provide such persons with access to personal information needed to perform their functions, based on our instructions and in accordance with appropriate security and confidentiality measures.

For legal purposes: we reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce our rights, to protect against harm or the rights, property or safety of others or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.

Also, in the event that KidsLink or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, our customer information will be one of the transferred assets. In that case, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and will give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Occasionally we may send information or offers to you on behalf of other organisations or businesses. When we do this however, we do not share your personal information with those other organisations or businesses.

We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our contractors, service providers and other third parties such as marketing, search and research organisations, for example, Google.

Access, correction, and deletion

To keep personally identifiable information that you provide via this site accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below and we will take appropriate steps to update or correct such information in our possession, or to delete your information from our contact list. If we no longer need personally identifiable information for any of the purposes referred to in this policy, we will take reasonable steps to either destroy or de-identify your information.

Security

This site takes reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure.
