Our website address is: https://activeelectrodunedin.co.nz.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors enter their name, email address, and phone number, these details are emailed through to key members of staff who are able to respond to your enquiry, or pass it on to someone within our organisation who can. By providing your name, email address, and/or phone number, you enable us to get in touch to better clarify your needs and make arrangements to help. We will record the details you provide, including a billing address and service location in order to provide our service and request remuneration for it.
Providing some information is optional. If you choose not to enter phone or email, we’ll be unable to get in touch via those methods and may not be able to respond to your enquiry…
Information submitted via the Contact Form is securely sent to email Inboxes within our organisation.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the 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.
Embedded content from other websites
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.
Who we share your data with
We only share your data with people or organisations that will help to provide the service you have requested.
How long we retain your data
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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If you’d like to ask for a copy of your information, or to have it corrected, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 034564087, or 36 Prince Albert Road, Dunedin 9012.
