GoSeeNewZealand Privacy Policy

GoSeeNewZealand is committed to protecting user privacy while interacting with unique GSNZ multi-search content and links. GSNZ aims for a secure environment for all.

We want you to know what kind of information we might gather about you when you visit our site, how we might use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct this information.

GoSeeNewZealand's policy allows you to choose what kind of and how much information you provide to us and to control how we use whatever information you give us. Our goal is to give you a satisfying experience while allowing you to control your privacy and to give you a means to voice any questions or concerns you may have.

How we collect information

Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. You could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address or information about what you like and do not like. It is your choice whether to respond to these questions or not.

GoSeeNewZealand collects two kinds of information. The first type is anonymous information. For instance, we may collect information to tell us that 11,000 people visit this Privacy Policy today, but we do not know their names, where they live or their date of birth - they are 'anonymous' to us.

Another example of GSNZ collecting anonymous information is when you are invited to respond to surveys on this site. The surveys may ask you for demographic information such as your age, gender and postcode. This information is collected for research purposes, is used in the aggregate (where possible), and remains anonymous. Many of the individuals who access our services are anonymous to us.

The second type of information is personal information. GoSeeNewZealand will collect personal information that lets us know the specifics of who you are such as your name, email address, or postal address, when you provide it to us. We hope that you will find it beneficial to provide individually identifiable information about yourself to us because it will make our services more valuable to you.

Sometimes, we might specifically ask for personal information about you when you sign up to use a service. Certain information may be required, such as your name, age, internet address or screen name, billing address, type of computer, credit card number, in order to provide that service or product to you.

This information might also be used to inform you of additional products and services which may interest you. You can choose not to receive such information when you are undertaking product or service registration on our website. We may also ask about your interests, but it is your choice whether to respond.

How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose to GoSeeNewZealand is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us, for example when you take part in a discussion forum.

How we use anonymous info

GoSeeNewZealand automatically gathers anonymous information to monitor the use of the site like the numbers and frequency of visitors to GSNZ and its areas, much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use such data in the aggregate.

This collective data helps us determine how much our audiences use parts of the site, so we can improve GoSeeNewZealand to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many users as possible. GoSeeNewZealand may publish or provide this aggregate data to other people.

Personal details are protected

GoSeeNewZealand will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. GoSeeNewZealand will not use it for any other purpose without your consent.

When we must disclose info

There will be times where it will be necessary for GSNZ to disclose your personal information to third parties. We can be required by law to disclose the information; the disclosure will only be made where it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which you disclosed your personal information. Otherwise than stated above, we do not disclose personal information that you may give us, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to any organisation or person outside GoSeeNewZealand unless you have authorized us to do so. For example, when you contribute to an online forum you may want to publish your name and email address.

Your details are not for sale

Under no circumstances will GoSeeNewZealand sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.

Interact carefully

There are interactive features on GSNZ that you can contribute to. When interacting with GSNZ , we suggest that you use your discretion and exercise caution when providing your personal information.

Note that whenever you post personal information in publicly accessible places, the information is available to anyone with access to the internet. This information can be collected and used by others.

If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Therefore, we recommend that you refrain from posting any information that you do not want seen in these public areas. For example, when participating in a GoSeeNewZealand forums. You must not intentionally use the name of another living person. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any personal information. Be responsible whenever you are online.

If GoSeeNewZealand holds your personal information GoSeeNewZealand will, where possible, provide you with access to the information. We will take reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up to date.

GoSeeNewZealand operates secure data networks that are designed to protect your privacy and security.
