Our Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this Privacy Policy, which explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.  To make this Privacy Policy easy to find, we make it available throughout our site and where personally identifiable data may be requested.

The Information We Collect

This Privacy Policy applies to all information collected or submitted on our website.  On some pages, you may be able to join the club, order products, make requests and register to receive email updates. The types of personal information collected at these pages include:

  • Name(s)
  • E-mail address
  • Phone number
  • Address
  • Date(s) of birth
  • Gender identification(s)

How We Use Information

We use the information you provide about yourself for things such as joining the club, placing an order or signing up for email updates. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order and we share the information with the two agencies listed below.

  • Mountain Biking New Zealand (MTBNZ)
  • Cycling New Zealand (CNZ)

Both MTBNZ and CNZ are in need of robust participation records to present to Sport NZ and other funding agencies.  Like the club is need of numbers to help with our funding applications and advocacy work, the national bodies are likewise in need of national numbers to show participation and trends in our sport.  As the club has been asked to collect gender information, the club has followed guidelines on how best to ask inclusive gender questions.

We may use your e-mail address to communicate with you, for example, to notify you of special offers or events you might find of interest.  We use membership numbers when applying for funds and advocating for mountain biking in Taranaki.

We use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive. We may also use these e-mail addresses to provide order status and order tracking information and to respond to queries.

You may be able to register with our website if you would like to receive updates on news, events or new products or services.

We may use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and share with our advertising agencies.  For example, we may tell an advertising agency that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to personally identify those individuals.

If you choose to join the club or receive products or materials from us, or to otherwise give us personal information, we may store some or all of that personal information and dispose of it if you choose to leave or not re-join the club.

We will never sell your personal information to any other company.

In the event of a criminal investigation or a suspected illegal activity, we may be required by law enforcement agencies to share certain personal information.

Finally, we never use or share personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
