To ensure that the privacy of information relating to our Website Users, Clients, Employees, and Third Party’s is maintained.
Real Finance Limited (herein referred to as We, Our and/or Us) is an organization that has obligations to maintain privacy in respect of personal information held about our Client(s), Website Users, Employees and Third Party Organisations.
The Privacy Act 2020 has principles covering the collection, use and disclosure of personal information, as well as the access to and correction of that personal information by the individuals concerned.
Personal information under the Privacy Act 2020 means “information about an identifiable individual”.
A breach of the privacy principles may amount to interference to privacy, which may be investigated by the Privacy Commissioner. Complaints not settled by the Privacy Commissioner may be referred to the Proceedings Commissioner and may fall to be determined by the Complaints Review Tribunal.
The general principles provided for by the Privacy Act 2020 include:
We have developed the following rules to ensure its obligations under the Privacy Act 2020 are observed and upheld:
Limits on Use:
Limits on Disclosure: We will not disclose to any person or agency your personal information. In particular, we will not give information you have provided on this website or otherwise to a third party unless:
Disclosure of Information outside of NZ: We do not currently provide any personal information to Foreign Persons or Entity’s. If a requirement to do so does occur, our Privacy Officer will handle the exception, provide all relevant disclosures, obtain your necessary authority’s and record the event for future retrieval by you if needed.
Unique Identifier: We will only assign a unique identifier to you if this is necessary to enable us to carry out our functions effectively.
Independent Dispute Resolution: If we are not able to solve any complaint which you may raise in relation to our non-compliance with with the Privacy of your information, you have the right to refer your complaint to the Privacy Commissioner. Information can be found on their website.
