What we use your Personal Information for?

We collect and use your personal information for the following purposes:

Who may we share your Personal Information with?

Only authorised employees of the Kalkine group of companies have access to any personal information you provide to us.

We may provide your personal information to our employees, companies within our group (including other Kalkine Media business units in Australia, United Kingdom, United States and Canada), persons who provide services to us (for example, service providers including contractors, advisers, and agents), regulatory authorities, government agencies, law enforcement, exchanges, courts and other third parties (including financial institutions). We will disclose your personal information to these parties only:

Please note that overseas recipients may not be required to protect your personal information in a way that, overall, provides comparable safeguards to those in the New Zealand Privacy Act 2020.  Some of those safeguards may be protected by way of contracting between us and the overseas recipients, but we may not be able to contractually bind the overseas recipients in every case.

Accordingly, by using our services, you agree that we may provide your personal information to these offshore entities for the above purposes.

Retention, storage and security

We may record and store personal information we collect from you. We take reasonable steps to ensure your personal information is stored securely and is protected from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure.

Your personal information will be stored physically or electronically (including via cloud storage) by us, or the persons to whom we disclose it to, in New Zealand and overseas. We may store your personal information using a third-party service provider (including providers outside New Zealand) and so your personal information may be held outside New Zealand.

We cannot promise that your personal information will be completely free from access by an unauthorised person (e.g., a hacker). However, we use reasonable safeguards to minimise the risk of this occurring. If a privacy breach occurs which has caused or may cause serious harm to you, we will notify you of this as soon as practicable either directly or, if that is not reasonably practicable, by public notice (unless an exception applies).

We will retain your personal information (including after you have deleted or cancelled your account) only where we are required by law to do so. We will delete your personal information when it is no longer required for the purpose it was collected for. 

Consent to use and disclosure of your Personal Information:

We may use personal information which we have collected from you to send you emails and other internet-based communications containing relevant financial and investment news. By providing your email address, you consent to receiving the latest articles and reports from Kalkine Media. If you no longer wish to receive these services, you may request to withdraw your consent by writing to us at info@kalkinemedia.com or by unsubscribing, using the link provided on such e-mails.

We will not share or sell your email address to third parties for marketing purposes.

Your right to access and correction of your Personal Information

The Privacy Act 2020 gives you rights to request access to, and correction of, your personal information held by us.  If you wish to exercise either of these rights, please contact us at the user support service number: +64 98862886.
