Hope Channel NZ is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Hope Channel NZ website, even if they are linked to on the Hope Channel NZ website.

Use of your Personal Information

Hope Channel NZ collects and uses your personal information to operate the Hope Channel NZ web site and deliver the services you have requested. Hope Channel NZ also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Hope Channel NZ and its affiliates.

Hope Channel NZ does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Hope Channel NZ may send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Hope Channel NZ, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Hope Channel NZ keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within Hope Channel NZ, in order to determine what Hope Channel NZ services are the most popular.

Hope Channel NZ websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Hope Channel NZ or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Hope Channel NZ; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Hope Channel NZ, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Hope Channel NZ website uses “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Hope Channel NZ pages, or register with Hope Channel NZ site or services, a cookie helps Hope Channel NZ to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Hope Channel NZ website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Hope Channel NZ features that you customised.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Hope Channel NZ services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Hope Channel NZ secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Hope Channel NZ secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers  through service providers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

Hope Channel NZ will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Hope Channel NZ encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Hope Channel NZ is protecting your information.
