WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
We collect personal information from you, including information about your:
- Contact information
- Computer or network
- Interactions with us
- Giving and purchase information
We collect your personal information to correspond with you in person, by letter, email, text, social media or phone in order to:
- Engage with you about the impact your gifts are having and/or the advocacy actions you have taken
- Inform you about ways you can continue or increase your support or activities to end the injustice of poverty
- Engage with you about any events/fundraisers/advocacy actions you are participating in
Providing some information is optional. If you choose not to enter a phone number, email or address, we’ll be limited in how much we can engage with you about the impact your support is having to help us envision an even better Te Puke region. You can choose what type of communication you would prefer to receive and you can opt out entirely at any time. We keep your information safe by storing your data securely and only sharing extremely limited data with external service providers for the sole purpose of delivering Vector Group’s interactions with you. This data is not sold, rented or swapped with any organisation.
You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information we hold about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong. If you’d like to ask for a copy of your information, or to have it corrected, please contact us at email@example.com, or 027 4144 280, or PO Box 225, Te Puke, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the Facebook comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
