Air New Zealand Environmental Charitable Trust Privacy and Security Policy

Introduction

The Air New Zealand Environmental Charitable Trust ("the Trust") is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information you might provide via this website. This policy explains how we manage personal information and the security precautions taken. While we will take reasonable measures to protect your privacy, this policy is not a contract and does not create any legal rights or obligations. By using this site, you acknowledge that you have received notice of the Trust's privacy policy set out below including the collection and use of information as explained in this privacy policy.

Collection of information

The Trust collects and maintains information about online and offline donors and other website visitors, including:

If you choose not to provide personal information when requested, certain services may not be available to you online.

How do we use your information?

We collect the information described above to:

We do not intend to use your personal information collected through this site or off-line, in ways not described here, without first providing you the opportunity to opt out of that use.

We may share your personal information with third party data processing agents for any of the purposes described here. We will require these third parties to strictly comply with our instructions and not use the information for any other purpose.

The Trust may disclose personal information if required to do so by law, court order, subpoena or other legal process, as requested by a governmental or law enforcement authority, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary or advisable.  

Disclosures may include the transfer of your personal information between countries.

Protection of personal information

When you make a donation via this website, your credit card information will be encrypted using industry standard data encryption for transmission. Known as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol, you can check this is active by looking for the padlock symbol on many browsers. SSL allows a secure connection between your web browser and our web server, using a private (or secret) key to encrypt the information. This encryption provides greater consumer protection than many forms of offline credit card payment.

We make no warranty (express or implied) in respect of the effectiveness of encryption used and we are not responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.

In general, you can visit most parts of our website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers identify the domain names and IP addresses of visitors, where applicable, but this is not captured as personal information.
