Use of your Personal Information

SCOUTS New Zealand may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
SCOUTS New Zealand does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. SCOUTS New Zealand may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, SCOUTS New Zealand may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries.

SCOUTS New Zealand keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within SCOUTS New Zealand, in order to determine what SCOUTS New Zealand services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within SCOUTS New Zealand to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
SCOUTS New Zealand websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on SCOUTS New Zealand or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of SCOUTS New Zealand; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of SCOUTS New Zealand, or the public.
The SCOUTS New Zealand website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize SCOUTS New Zealand pages, or register with SCOUTS New Zealand site or services, a cookie helps SCOUTS New Zealand to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same SCOUTS New Zealand web page, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the SCOUTS New Zealand features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the SCOUTS New Zealand services or websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
SCOUTS New Zealand secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. SCOUTS New Zealand secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

SCOUTS New Zealand will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. SCOUTS New Zealand encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how SCOUTS New Zealand is protecting your information.
