  1. Our Website uses cookies and similar technologies to assist us with providing you with an optimal experience and also to help improve and secure Our Website (and your information).

  2. Information we receive from other sources. We may combine this information with information you give to us and information we collect about you. We may use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive). 


  1. We may share your personal information with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in the Companies Act 1993. 
  2. We may share your information with selected third parties including: 
    1. Our credit card and debit card payment processing agents. We know how important it is to protect the security of your credit and debit card information. For that reason, we have contracted leading payment service agents to store those details securely.  When you provide us with your card details, and if you instruct us to save your card details for future transactions, we retain only part of those card details, before sending them to our payment services agent using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts the card details while they are transmitted. Our payment services agents will then securely store your card details in accordance with their own security protocols, and electronically confirm to us each time that you wish to make a transaction if your existing card details held by them are still valid. Sharing your card details in this manner helps us ensure that your card details are securely stored at all times and that once transmitted we do not hold your card details. 
    2. Business partners, suppliers and subcontractors who we engage to perform functions on our behalf. They will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. They must also process the personal information in accordance with our Privacy Policy and as permitted by applicable data protection laws; 
    3. Advertisers and advertising networks that require the data to select and serve relevant adverts to you and others. We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users.  We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach their target audience.  We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience; 
    4. Analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of Our Website; and
    5. Credit reference agencies for the purpose of assessing your credit score where this is a condition of us entering into a contract with you. 
  3. We may disclose your personal information to third parties: 
    1. In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. 
    2. If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our customers will be one of the transferred assets (but will continue to be subject at all times to any pre-existing commitments to you regarding privacy). 
    3. If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

It may also be processed by staff operating outside New Zealand or Australia who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 
  2. All information you provide to us is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS) before being stored on our secure servers. Our servers may be located in New Zealand, Australia or elsewhere, and may be operated by us or our contractors but regardless will only be accessible by those authorised with special access rights to such systems, and under strict obligations requiring them to keep your information confidential.

We ask you not to share a password with anyone and that you do not use the same password on a different website or application. 
  4. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to Our Website. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. 


  1. You can always choose not to provide us with any information, or to disable as outlined in our Cookies Policy below, though this may affect your ability to access or use Our Website or any particular features of it, and we may not be able to process transactions with you.
  2. Our Website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates.  If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.  Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

    7. Right not to be subject to Automated Decision-making: the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated decision making, including profiling, where the decision would have a legal effect on you or produce a similarly significant effect.

  1. As noted in our Cookies Policy below, you can change settings on your device or browser to disable the use of Cookies and the other similar technologies we use. 
  2. If we receive a “Do not Track” Signal from you, we will cease to use all cookies other than “strictly necessary cookies” which apply to any features of Our website or services we offer. You will then be advised whether any feature of Our website which you attempt to use or access will not correctly operate without additional tracking or cookies being enabled for any reason. 


  1. Our Website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 18 years old or older. If you are under 18 years of age, you may only use Our Website with the involvement of a parent or guardian.



  1. Our website and any mobile applications (“Apps”) we provide use technologies like cookies, pixel tags, device or other identifiers and local storage (collectively described as “Cookies”) to distinguish you from other users of our Website or Apps. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our Website, and also allows us to improve and secure our site. Third parties that you interact with as you use our Services may also use these technologies for a variety of purposes. 
  2. Your browser or device may offer settings related to these technologies. For more information about whether these settings are available, what they do, and how they work, visit your browser or device's help material. We may not recognise or respond to browser or device signals around tracking, and some settings may interfere with your use of features we offer. Additionally, the settings offered by a browser or device often only apply to that particular browser or device. 
  3. Cookies are small files that are placed on your browser or device by the website or app that you're using or ad that you're viewing. Pixel tags (also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are small blocks of code on a webpage or app that allow them to do things like read and place other cookies and transmit information to us or our partners. The resulting connection can include information such as a device's IP address, the time a person viewed the pixel, an identifier associated with the browser or device and the type of browser being used. Local storage is a technology that allows a website or app to store and retrieve data on a person's computer, mobile phone or other device. Some examples include device or HTML5 local storage and caching. 
  4. We use the following types of Cookies: 
    1. “Persistent”– stored on your computer or device, and used to recognise you when you return to our Website. This assists with our security services, and also enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your region) and provide personalised features such as start page, or deliver ads that are relevant to you. 
    2. “Session” – temporarily stored in your computer or device's memory, and used as an integral part of the identification process for our services. This is for security purposes to determine that you are who you say you are and to provide you with your confidential account information during a session. No personal information is kept in the Cookie and the cookie is not written to your hard drive. When you log out of your session the Cookie is no longer valid and is discarded when you close your browser.
  5. The Cookies we use may be categorised as: 
    1. “Essential”. These are Cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, authentication Cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services. For example, they help protect your account from being accessed by anyone other than you, and let us know when several people have logged in from the same computer. With login approvals if someone logs into your account from a browser you've never used before, we may block them and ask for more information. They also help us implement login notifications, so you can be alerted when your account is accessed and disable any active sessions. 
    2. “Analytical/performance”. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Website and Apps when they are using them. This helps us to improve the way our Website and Apps work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. 
    3. “Functionality”. These are used to recognise you when you return to our Website and/or Apps. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your region). For example, we may store information in a Cookie that is placed on your browser or device so you will see the site in your preferred language. 
    4. “Targeting”. These record your visit to our Website or Apps, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our Website, Apps and the advertising displayed on them more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose but will never share any information which enables you to be identified. 
  6. 7. By continuing to browse or use Our Website or Apps, you are agreeing to our use of Cookies, but note that you can block these by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse Cookies.  Please note however that: 
    1. If you use your browser settings to block all Cookies (including “essential” ones) you may not be able to access all parts or features of our Website or Apps, or they may operate more slowly or require re-entry of data already entered on other occasions. 
    2. We still use some Cookies if you don't have an account or have logged out of your account. For example, if you have logged out of your account we use Cookies to help: 
      1. Identify and disable the accounts of spammers; 
      2. Recover your account if you ever lose access to it; 
      3. Provide extra security features like login notifications and login approvals; 
      4. Prevent people who are underage from signing up with a false birth date; 
      5. Identify public computers so that we can discourage people from using ‘Keep me logged in' and putting their account at risk; and 
      6. Generate insights about the people who interact with our Website and/or Apps, any services we provide, and the websites of our advertisers and partners. 
    3. Third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use Cookies, over which we have no control. These are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting Cookies. 
  7. Except for Essential Cookies, all Cookies we use will expire after they are no longer required for their original purpose.
