The information I collect through my Site helps me provide you with information specific to your needs and interests. This privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") covers my website (the "Site"). Please read below to review my Privacy Policy and the types of information I gather through my Site. In this Privacy Policy, "we", "us", "our" and other similar references mean me and "you" and "your" and other similar references mean a specific user of the Site. By visiting the Site, you accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

2. How do I Gather and Use Information?

 I gather Personal Information that you provide me.

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" is any information that identifies you, would enable someone to contact you, or that describes our relationship with me. I collect and store Personal Information when you ask a question, complete a form, or send me an email. While you are not required to submit any information to my Site, if you do not provide the requested information, you may not be able to access or use some of the features and functions of my Site and I may not be able to provide you with certain services. My website uses your Personal Information to respond to your  requests, deliver the services you request, and notify you of updates or offers  (which may be offered by me or one of my Site Affiliates via email) that I think may interest you.

3. What Security Procedures Do I Use To Protect Personal Information?

I use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to assist me in preventing unauthorized access, maintaining data accuracy, and correctly using your Personal Information. Except as specified in this Privacy Policy, I use commercially reasonable efforts to limit access to your Personal Information to my employees, agents, and officers who need the information for their jobs.

4. Will I Disclose The Information I Collect To Outside Parties?

My may share information with business associates and affiliated companies, and with other carefully selected vendors and business partners with whom I work (collectively, "Site Affiliates"). This includes companies that perform marketing services and other business operations for me (including providing goods and services to my users, as necessary to complete transactions you request). All companies that act on my behalf are contractually obligated to keep all information confidential and to use Personal Information only to provide the services I ask them to perform for you and us. I may provide aggregate statistics about my clients, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third party vendors, but these statistics do not include Personal Information. I may disclose Personal Information I collect from you if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that disclosure is necessary (a) to obey the law or comply with legal process served on me or my affiliates; (b) to protect and defend my rights or property or the rights or property of other users of my Site; or (c) to act in an emergency to protect the personal safety of users of my Site or the public. On a limited basis, I may also disclose your Personal Information to certain Site Affiliates for their use in contacting you, when I reasonably believe their products or services are complementary to your interests or my business.

5. External Links.

Other companies or organizations may have links to their Sites on my Site.

I am not responsible for how these other companies or organizations collect, use, disclose, or secure the information that you provide them. If you choose to access a third party Site linked to my Site, you do so at your  own risk and subject to any terms of service or privacy policy (if any) associated with such third party Sites.

6. Collection of Information from Children.

I do not direct any of my content specifically to children. Users of my Site are required to be at least 18 years old, and any user under 18 is not an authorized user. If I learn that a user is under thirteen (13) years of age, I will promptly delete any Personal Information I have collected about that user.

7. Consent to Processing In New Zealand.

By providing any Personal Information to me, all users, including, without limitation, users in New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Canada and the member states of the European Union, fully understand and unambiguously consent to this Privacy Policy and to the transfer of such Personal Information across international borders in accordance with my standard operations, including the collection, storage, and processing of such information in New Zealand and Australia.

This allows me to serve my clients and business associates with the level of satisfaction they deserve.
