Our Use of IP Addresses and Cookies

We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report “aggregate information” to our advertisers. “Aggregate Information” is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns that we collect, from which individual customer identities have been removed.

For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general Internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive. They help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service. They enable us:

  • To estimate our audience size and usage pattern.
  • To store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise our site according to your individual interests.
  • To speed up your searches.
  • To recognise you when you return to our site.

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of our site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our site.

Please note that our advertisers and third-party websites may also use cookies, over which we have no control.

Where We Store Your Personal Data

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. The encryption process converts the characters that you enter into code that is then securely transmitted over the Internet. When you place an order, a small padlock will appear at the bottom of your browser indicating that any information provided cannot be viewed by a third party.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Making Changes to Your Personal Information

You can access and edit any of the personally identifiable information that you have provided by entering your e-mail address and password and using the “Update Account” feature in the “Account Dashboard” section. You may also change your personal information in your account profile. You may also be able to change your profile by writing us at RSN New Zealand P/L, PO Box 99841, Newmarket 1149 Auckland.

Our Policy on Contacting You

If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you or where you have consented.

If you are a new customer, and where we permit selected third parties to use your data, we (or they) will contact you by electronic means only if you have consented to this.

If you do not want us to use your data in this way, or to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please tick the relevant box situated on the form on which we collect your data (the order form). In addition, you can opt out of receiving such communications from us at any time by following instructions provided at the bottom of the e-mail communication or by e-mailing us at sales@rsn.co.nz.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

By using our website you consent to our collection and use of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Any changes we may make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page. You should refer back to this page for the latest information and the effective date of any changes.
