Convergence Limited (“Convergence”) is committed to bringing you the best, most interesting information possible, tailored where we can to your individual needs. We are also committed to protecting your privacy. We will not collect any information about companies or individuals, except where it is specifically and knowingly provided by them.
Examples of such information are:
• Company Name
• Personal Name
• Company Address
• Company Telephone numbers
• Email addresses
• Specific areas of interest (products, technologies, seminars, events)
The information collected will only be used to send you the information you have requested and also help us to develop our website(s), products, events and to be useful to you. We may share non-personal aggregate statistics (group) data about our readers, sales and traffic patterns with partners or other parties. However, we do not sell or share any information about individual users.
Our website(s) may also place cookies on your computer. These are only accessible by us and will only be used to track the pages of the web site visited by you, in order for us to build a better site more tailored to your needs and interests. Our cookies do not record personal information about you, merely your computer.
If you choose to subscribe to the Convergence regular newsletter or register for a seminar or event, we will from time to time email you with special offers or information that may be of interest. This service is completely discretionary. If you decide you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, just follow the unsubscribe instructions contained within the email.
Whilst we make every effort to provide you with links to high quality, reputable sites, they are not under our day-to-day control. When you click through to these sites you leave the area controlled by Convergence. We cannot therefore accept responsibility for any issues arising in connection with either their use of your data, the site content or the services offered to our readers by these sites.
In addition to Convergence’s safeguards, your personal data is protected in New Zealand by the Privacy Act 1993. This provides, amongst other things, that the data we hold about you should be processed lawfully and fairly. It should be accurate, relevant and not excessive. The information should be kept up to date, where necessary, and not retained for longer than is necessary. You have the right to see what is held about you and correct any inaccuracies. If you wish to update your personal data, please contact us. Convergence treats all the data held with the utmost care and security. Any details you give will remain completely confidential.
Please contact us if you have any enquiries about this policy or write to Privacy Officer, PO Box 589, Whangaparaoa, Auckland 0943, New Zealand.
