Personal information you give us
Personal information such as your name and email address is collected only when we explicitly require it and you agree to provide it. For example you may need to provide us with information so we can contact you, or to allow you to access parts of our website if you are a member.
Unless we otherwise specify, it is entirely voluntary whether you provide us with information we request. However if not providing the information would put you at a significant disadvantage, we will advise you of this.
The parts of the site that hold information personally identifying you, will be able to be accessed by Taranaki Whānui E Tū administrators and authorised persons only.
Although Taranaki Whānui E Tū automatically gathers generic information to assist with making its website useful and interesting for members and other visitors, it does not collect personal information about those who merely browse our website.
