ASSEMBLY OF GOD (WELLINGTON) TRUST BOARD t/a Life­point Church com­plies with the New Zealand Privacy Act 1993 (the Act) when dealing with per­sonal infor­ma­tion. Per­sonal infor­ma­tion is infor­ma­tion about an iden­ti­fi­able indi­vid­ual (a natural person).

This policy sets out how we will collect, use, dis­close, protect and retain your per­sonal information.

This policy does not limit or exclude any of your rights under the Act. If you wish to seek further infor­ma­tion on the Act, see

Changes to this policy

We may change this policy by upload­ing a revised policy onto the website. The change will apply from the date on which we upload the revised policy.

Who do we collect personal information from

We collect per­sonal infor­ma­tion about you from:

  • you, when you provide that per­sonal infor­ma­tion to us, includ­ing via the website, through any reg­is­tra­tion process, and through any contact you have with us (e.g. tele­phone call or email).
  • third parties, if you have autho­rised this, or if the infor­ma­tion is pub­licly available.

How we may use personal information

We will use your per­sonal information:

  • to verify your identity
  • to provide ser­vices to you
  • to contact you by text or email
  • to improve the ser­vices that we provide to you
  • to respond to com­mu­ni­ca­tions from you, includ­ing a complaint
  • in an anonymised form, to conduct research and sta­tis­ti­cal analysis
  • to protect and/or enforce our legal rights and inter­ests, includ­ing defend­ing any claim
  • for any other purpose autho­rised by you or the Act.

Disclosure of personal information

We may dis­close your per­sonal infor­ma­tion if:

  • you autho­rise the disclosure
  • dis­clo­sure of the infor­ma­tion is one of the pur­poses for which we obtained the infor­ma­tion, or if dis­clo­sure is directly related to the pur­poses for which we obtained the information
  • in an anonymised form, to any third party that sup­ports our ser­vices, includ­ing any person that hosts or main­tains any under­ly­ing IT system or data centre that we use to provide our website or other ser­vices and products
  • dis­clo­sure is oth­er­wise per­mit­ted under the Act.

Protecting personal information

We will take all rea­son­able steps to keep your per­sonal infor­ma­tion safe from loss, unau­tho­rised activ­ity, or other misuse.

Retaining personal information

We will not retain your per­sonal infor­ma­tion for longer than is required for the purpose for which the infor­ma­tion may law­fully be used.

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 you want to exer­cise either of the above rights, email us at [email protected]. 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).

Internet use

While we take rea­son­able steps to main­tain secure inter­net con­nec­tions, if you provide us with per­sonal infor­ma­tion over the inter­net, the pro­vi­sion of that infor­ma­tion is at your own risk.

If you follow a link on our website to another site, the owner of that site will have its own privacy policy relat­ing to your per­sonal infor­ma­tion. We suggest you review that site’s privacy policy before you provide per­sonal information.

You may disable cookies by chang­ing the set­tings on your browser, although this may mean that you cannot use all of the fea­tures of the website.
