What personal information we collect and hold
The kinds of personal information we collect from you or about you depend on the transaction you have entered into with us, the goods / services you or your organisation have contracted us to provide, and the goods / services you or your organisation are interested in.
The kinds of personal information that we commonly collect and hold from you or about you include: your name, address, phone and fax numbers, email address, date of birth, drivers licence details, bank account details and credit card details.
How we collect and hold personal information
We aim to collect personal information only directly from you, unless it is unreasonable or impracticable for us to do so. For example, we collect personal information from you or about you from correspondence that you submit to us, telephone calls and meetings with us, information you provide us at trade shows or through our competitions, information you provide us through our paper-based and electronic customer surveys, information you provide us using our web-based portals and apps, and from your activity on our website and social media platforms.
In some instances we may also receive personal information about you from third parties, such as associated businesses and/or federal government departments.
You can be anonymous or use a pseudonym when dealing with us, unless:
the use of your true identity is a legal requirement; or
it is impracticable for us to deal with you on such basis.
Why we collect, hold, use and disclose personal information
We collect, hold, use and disclose personal information from you or about you where it is reasonably necessary for us to carry out our business functions and activities. For example, we collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information as necessary to provide our goods and services to you or your organisation.
We may collect sensitive information from you or about you where there is a legal requirement to do so, or where we are otherwise permitted by law. In all other situations, we will specifically seek your consent.
If we do not collect, hold, use or disclose your personal information, or if you do not consent, then we may not be able to answer your enquiry, complete the transaction you have entered into, or provide the goods / services that you or your organisation have contracted us to provide.
We collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information for related purposes that you would reasonably expect, such as our administrative and accounting functions, fraud checks, processing your payments, obtaining product registrations and approvals, providing you with information about other goods / services offered by us, market research, warranty work, customer satisfaction surveys, newsletter communications, statistical collation, and website traffic analysis.
We also use your personal information for marketing and promotional activities, and for maintaining your online subscription/s to our newsletters and service portals. Where we use your personal information for marketing and promotional communications, you can opt out at any time by notifying us. Opt out procedures are also included in our marketing communications.
We may also disclose your personal information to third parties (including product installers, government departments and enforcement bodies) where required or permitted by law.
Where we wish to use or disclose your personal information for other purposes, we will obtain your consent.
How we store personal information

Destruction and De-identification
We will retain your personal information whilst it is required for any of our business functions, or for any other lawful purpose. We use secure methods to destroy or to permanently de-identify your personal information when it is no longer needed.
Our business is affiliated with other businesses, organisations and people located overseas. In the course of doing business with you, we are likely to disclose some of your personal information to overseas recipients located in New Zealand. However, we will only do so where:
it is necessary to complete the transaction you have entered into; and
you have provided consent; or
we believe on reasonable grounds that the overseas recipient is required to deal with your personal information by enforceable laws which are similar to the requirements under the APPs; or
it is otherwise permitted by law.
