In this Policy, we provide transparency on the information collected on www.getaflex.co.nz (Website), and explain how this information is utilised. This Policy has been prepared by Getaflex Limited (Company Registration Number 6393532).
Changes to this policy
We may change this Policy by uploading a revised Policy onto the Website. The change will apply from the date that we upload the revised Policy.

Accessing and correcting your personal information
Subject to certain grounds for refusal set out in the Act, you have the right to access your readily retrievable personal information that we hold and to request a correction to your personal information. Before you exercise this right, we will need evidence to confirm that you are the individual to whom the personal information relates.
In respect of a request for correction, if we think the correction is reasonable and we are reasonably able to change the personal information, we will make the correction. If we do not make the correction, we will take reasonable steps to note on the personal information that you requested the correction.
If you want to exercise either of the above rights, email us at email@example.com. Your email should provide evidence of who you are and set out the details of your request (e.g. the personal information, or the correction, that you are requesting).
Getaflex may charge you our reasonable costs of providing to you copies of your personal information or correcting that information.
Security of information
Getaflex takes all reasonable steps to ensure the security of our system and to protect your information from misuse, as well as unauthorised access. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration form, the transmission of that information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology. However:
- if you provide us with personal information over the internet, the provision of that information is at your own risk; and
- if you post a job or blog on the Website you acknowledge and agree that the information you post is publicly available.
Except where liable under the Act, Getaflex will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access of your personal information.
