Set out below is Home for Hire’s policy in respect to privacy and discloses our information gathering and usage practices.
Use of your information
In order to provide services to you we need to collect certain personal information from you. Information entered on the Home for Hire site remains the property of Home for Hire. We do not sell or licence use of your personal information to third parties but we will provide third parties with the information required to facilitate a booking that you make through the Home for Hire site.
We may from time to time hire a third party to act on our behalf for projects such as market research. We will provide information to these third parties specifically for use in connection with these projects. The information we provide will be protected by a confidentiality agreement that will obligate the third party to use the information solely to complete the specific project.
Other than as specified above, we release account and other personal information only when release is required by law or necessary to enforce or apply our terms and conditions or protect the rights of Home for Hire, our customers or other third parties.
Other information we collect
If you choose to post comments for other users, we will collect the information you provide to us.
If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if third parties send us correspondence about your activities or comments on the Home for Hire site, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
Updating Your Personal Information
Home for Hire allows you to alter your personal data when you are logged into the website.
If you believe that any of your personal details which we are processing are inaccurate or incorrect, please contact us immediately.
Control of Your Password
You are responsible for all actions taken with your user name, email address and password. Therefore you should not disclose your Home for Hire password to any third parties.
If you have subscribed to our e-mail service or have made a booking for, or an enquiry about, the services we offer, we may send you very occasional and targeted promotional e-mails about the services and special deals we offer unless you have opted out of receiving these.
Home for Hire fully complies with the requirements of the New Zealand Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007 with Express and Inferred consent. Home for Hire includes a structured opt out facility on ALL commercial electronic messages. Additionally, our site provides you the opportunity to manage your own Personal Profile, including email preferences (Personal Preferences), allowing you to opt-out at any stage from receiving such communications.
If you have a property listed on Home for Hire we reserve the right to contact you regarding critical website updates and key alerts indicating outstanding requests.
Finally, your email address may also be used if it becomes necessary to contact you individually for any reason.
Removal of Registration
If you wish to have your registration removed from our directory for any reason, simply log in and unsubscribe.
We protect your credit card information during transmission by using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts your information when transmitted over the Internet. Your credit card details are not held by Home for Hire and cannot be accessed by Home for Hire personnel.
When purchasing from Home for Hire your financial details are passed through a secure server using the latest 128-bit SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption technology. 128-bit SSL encryption is approximated to take at least one trillion years to break, and is the industry standard. If you have any questions regarding our security policy, please contact our customer support centre at firstname.lastname@example.org
When you visit our website, we may record your "IP addresses" and information on the type of operating system (e.g. Windows XP or Apple OS) and browser software (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera etc.) you are using. This information is used to diagnose problems with our service and for planning capacity and compatibility. Your IP address may also be used to help gather aggregated demographic information, such as which ISP you are using or what country you are connecting from.
Advertising and Third Party Links
The Home for Hire website may contain links to a variety of third party sites to enhance the member experience. We have no control of either the content or privacy policies of such sites, nor should such links be considered an endorsement of these sites except where otherwise noted. We encourage you to review the policies of such third party sites prior to submitting any personal information to them.
From time to time, our privacy policies may change due to developments in business practice and/or due to changes in the law. So you should periodically review this page for the latest information on Home for Hire policies and practices.
