1. The Information We Collect
When users visit our site, we automatically collect some non-personally identifiable information to process and fulfill orders for products or services, such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), the browser being used (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox), and the domain name of the Internet service provider (e.g., Big Pond, Xtra).
We collect IP addresses to obtain aggregate information on the use of thegainline.co.nz. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by a Web server when you’re on the Web. When you are on our site, we have a back-end server that logs your computer’s IP address. We only use the information we find out from tracking IP addresses in the aggregate, such as how many users entered a specific area of our site, and not to track a specific IP address to identify an individual user. However, we may use such information to identify a user if we feel that there are, or may be, safety and/or security issues or to comply with legal requirements.
The Gain Line ensures that all personally and non-personally identifiable information that it receives via the Internet is secure against unauthorized access. This means that no eyes but ours or those of contractors and agents performing services for us will ever see the information that our visitors send to us, unless we indicate otherwise.
2. How We Use the Information
We do not share this information with third parties. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request, another public agency’s request (such as schools or children services), or if we feel that such disclosure may help prevent a crime. We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways that are materially different from the ones described above without also providing notification of such practices and obtaining consent for any materially different uses.
3. The Use of Cookie Technology
Cookie technology helps us to know how many people visit us and where visitors go on our site. Cookies are small bits of information we send to your computer. Among other things, this non-personally identifiable information allows us to know which areas are favourites, which areas need a bit of improvement, or what technologies and Internet services are being used by our visitors so that we may continually improve online experiences.
4. Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites, Advertisers, and Sponsors
We do not allow third-party companies to solicit or advertise to our users. Our intention is to keep thegainline.co.nz free from any of this sort of direct advertising.
We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.
