Dynamic ECE is committed to respecting the privacy and security of information received from User(s) of our website or services. This Privacy and Data Policy sets out our compliance with both New Zealand privacy laws (including the Privacy Act 2020) and the European Union General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”).
We’ve updated our Privacy and Data Policy to ensure that we communicate to Users, in the clearest way possible, how we comply with these legal requirements, how we collect, use, disclose or transfer Personal Information supplied by Users or collected by us and the ways in which users can protect their privacy.
Our Privacy and Data Policy also specifies other requirements, such as how Users may access, correct and delete information held about them.
By using our services (including our Scissors™ app), or accessing our website, Users agree to comply with the terms and conditions of this Privacy and Data Policy and agree that Dynamic ECE may process (i.e. collect, use, store, transfer, disclose or otherwise process) User’s Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy and Data Policy (as well as for any other use authorised by the User).
Our Privacy and Data Policy explains:
Dynamic ECE provides a mobile application (Scissors™) to assist the recruitment of teachers by early childhood centres, which includes services supplied by third party providers (together, “our services”). We collect Personal Information in order to be able to provide and improve our services, and for the other uses described below.
By using our services, accessing our website or providing Personal Information to us, Users consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of Personal Information (including any sensitive information provided) in accordance with this Privacy and Data Policy.
There are three ways we collect information:
In order to purchase or use our services, a User must provide us with certain contact, billing and Personal Information including name, address, phone number, email address, industry specific information and company information. Users may also at times provide financial information.
Users may also provide us with information when they:
Users can always choose not to provide us with Personal Information, however this may mean that we are unable to supply our services effectively, or at all.
We may automatically collect information (which may include Personal Information) when Users interact with or use our services by visiting our website or communicating with us. This information may include:
We work closely with third parties (for example, our service providers) in order to be able to develop and supply our services, and provide them to Users.
We may receive the same kinds of information described in (a) and (b) above from third parties.
When using our services, Users may disclose, and we may collect, Personal Information about someone else. For example, data supplied by Users may contain Personal Information relating to the customers, or employees of Users.
Before disclosing Personal Information to us about someone else, Users must ensure that they have obtained sufficient consent to disclose that information to us, and that, without taking any further steps required by applicable data protection or privacy laws, we may collect, use, transfer and disclose such information for the purposes described in this Policy.
Users shall remain responsible for all Personal Information collected and processed by the User, and for compliance with applicable privacy and data protection laws.
We collect and use Personal Information in order to be able to provide and improve our services.
We also use Personal Information to:
For these purposes we may receive, use, store, share, send, combine, transform, reformat, encrypt, mask, organise, geomap, update and delete Personal Information (and undertake any further processing activities expressed or implied in this Policy). The Personal Information that we collect will not be further processed in ways that are incompatible with the initial purposes for which the data was collected.
We share information, including Personal Information, as necessary to provide Users the service requested or authorised. For example, we may share information with:
From time to time we may use third-party data processors to provide elements of services for us. We will have contracts in place with all of our data processors, to prevent them from doing anything with Users’ Personal Information unless we or the User has instructed them to do so. Unless the User agrees otherwise, our data processors will:
We require that our service providers and suppliers (data processors) agree to keep all User information we share with them confidential. While we provide these third parties with no more information than is necessary to perform the function for which we engaged them, Users should be aware that any information provided by the User to these third parties independently/directly is subject to the third parties' respective privacy policies and practices.
We may also share or use non-Personal Information (i.e. information that is related to a Person but does not personally identify that individual, such as aggregated, anonymised or de-identified data) publically or with third parties, such as our third party suppliers. For example, we may share or use information publically to show trends about the general use of our services. This data or information will in no way identify Users or any other individual.
Protecting the security of User Personal Information is of the utmost importance to Dynamic ECE. We maintain a variety of safeguards and procedures in order to protect Personal Information from unauthorised access, use, interference, modification or disclosure.
For example, we store Personal Information on computer systems that have password-controlled access. Users’ Personal Information will only be accessed by people at Dynamic ECE who need to use the information for the purposes discussed above.
Some of our services do require use of the internet, and the internet is not itself a secure environment. We therefore cannot give an absolute assurance or guarantee that User information will be secure at all times. Transmission of information over the internet or third-party networks is at the User’s own risk. We will notify Users at the first reasonable opportunity if we discover or are advised of a material security breach which has resulted in unauthorised access, disclosure or loss of User Personal Information.
To help maintain the security of information, Users agree to keep their passwords and account details private and confidential.
Under data protection and privacy laws, Users have rights regarding the Personal Information that we hold/collect. The rights available to Users depend on our reason for processing Users’ Personal information. These rights include:
All requests should be sent to us at [email protected], and include the words 'Attention: The Privacy Officer'. User choices in relation to Personal Information may affect our ability to provide our services, or the performance of the services. We will respond to Users as soon as reasonably practicable regarding the impact of the User’s requests on the services, any other issues arising and to confirm the User’s intention to proceed. If we are unable to comply with the request, we will give the User reasons for this decision when we respond (for example, the information may not be readily retrievable and it may not be reasonable or practicable for us to process the request in the manner sought. In some instances, it may also be necessary for us to arrange access to User Personal Information through a third party e.g. a third party service provider).
We are committed to full compliance with the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007.
By subscribing to email communications, or otherwise providing an email address, Users consent to receiving emails which promote and market our services, or the services of others, from time to time.
Users can unsubscribe from our email communications at any time by clicking the "Unsubscribe" link in any promotional or marketing email, or by emailing [email protected], and include the words 'Attention: The Privacy Officer’.
Once a User has unsubscribed from the email communications, the User will be removed from the corresponding email/distribution list as soon as is reasonably practicable.
Disclosure of Personal Information by Users to third party service providers is at the User’s own risk, and we encourage Users to read the privacy policies applicable to these third-party services. We are not responsible for the security or privacy of any information collected by these third-parties.
When we disclose, use or store data, it may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than New Zealand. In those countries, there may be differences with New Zealand's privacy laws.
This means that Users’ Personal Information may be transferred outside of New Zealand. However, where we disclose Personal Information to a third party in another country, we place or obtain safeguards to ensure Users’ Personal Information is protected (except as expressly disclosed in this Policy). Where Users’ Personal Information is transferred outside New Zealand, it will (except as expressly disclosed in this Policy) only be transferred to:
For further information, please contact us using the details set out in the contact section below.
The period of time for which we hold Personal Information that we have collected varies according to what the Personal Information is used or required for, and whether we have an ongoing need to retain it (for example, to provide Users with a service they have requested or to comply with applicable legal requirements such as financial record-keeping legislation).
Unless there is a legal requirement or justification for us to keep the Personal Information, we will retain it for no longer than is necessary:
Once Personal Information is no longer required, the Personal Information will be deleted, securely destroyed or anonymised.
Users are responsible for ensuring that Personal Information provided to us is accurate, complete and up-to-date. This includes personal or sensitive information contained in their User content. We will also take reasonable steps to ensure that any Personal Information that we collect (i.e. information obtained from other sources) is accurate, up-to-date, complete and not misleading.
We endeavour to provide Users with reasonable access to Personal Information we hold about Users, and Users may request that we update, correct or delete any Personal Information that is inaccurate or inappropriate for the purposes for which it was collected.
Requests for access to, or the correction of, Personal Information should be emailed to [email protected], and include the words 'Attention: The Privacy Officer’.
We will process requests as soon as reasonably practicable, provided we are not otherwise prevented from doing so by law. If we are unable to meet a User’s request, we will explain the reasons why when we respond to the User’s request. For example, the information may not be readily retrievable and it may not be reasonable or practicable for us to process the request in the manner requested.
Please contact us if you have any questions or complaints about this Privacy and Data Policy, if you wish to access, update, erase and/or correct Personal Information, or if you otherwise have a question or complaint about the manner in which we or our service providers treat Personal Information.
Users may write to Dynamic ECE’s Privacy Officer by email, including any supporting documentation, at [email protected], and include the words 'Attention: The Privacy Officer’.
