Healtheries Privacy Policy

This privacy policy outlines our data collection and usage policies. By using the Healtheries website and / or signing up to any service provided by the site, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information as set out in this privacy policy and you otherwise agree to be bound by this privacy policy.

Collection of Information

There are cases where Healtheries may ask you for personal information, such as your name, address, date of birth, gender, email address, etc. We do this for instance when you register for contests/promotions, respond to communication such as e-mail, and for services that require registration or subscription. We use ‘cookies’ to gather information about your visits to our website and enhance your experience. You can find more information on how we use cookies in the ‘Use of Cookies’ section below.

When you visit our website we collect so called ‘click stream’ data (server address, domain name etc). This information can be combined with information you have provided to us (for instance by registering), which will enable us to analyze and better customize your visits to our website. If you would like to be on our mailing list, we will ask you to actively opt-in.

Use of Visitors’ Information

All personal information that we obtain about you will be recorded, used and protected by us in accordance with current data protection legislation. We will primarily use your personal information to provide products and services to you, for example:

  • To send you information/materials via e-mail about products, surveys, competitions, offers and news we think could interest you. This information may relate to products, surveys, competitions, offers and news of Healtheries and/or its licensees and/or other third parties selected by Healtheries. We only send you this if you have opted-in to receive Healtheries e-mails. In case you do not want to receive any e-mails from us anymore, or if you want to modify your personal data or want your personal data to be deleted from our database, please see the ‘Opt-out, delete or modify personal information’ section below.
  • To analyze visits to the website and learn about the interests of our visitors in aggregate and also on a personal level to better understand our visitors’ interests and needs, so we can improve our products and services and deliver to you the type of content, features and promotions that you are most interested in.
  • To announce winners of competitions, product packs and offers. The announcement could be made on our website and/or in another digital medium (e.g. and not limited to Facebook, Instagram and YouTube page). By entering a competition or promotion, or opting in to receive any other prize from Healtheries, you agree that your personal information (name and surname) may be disclosed by Healtheries for promotional purposes. We will retain your personal information for as long as it is required to achieve the purposes set out in this privacy policy (subject to any legal requirements to retain your information for a longer period).

Who Manages Visitors’ Information

The Healtheries website and the information collected are managed and controlled by: Vitaco Health NZ Limited, Corner of Kordel Place and Accent Drive East Tamaki, Auckland New Zealand. The servers that host the Healtheries website are located in New Zealand.

Protection of Visitors’ information

In order to protect the information you provide to us by visiting our website we have implemented various security measures. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people, who have special access rights and are required to keep the information confidential.

Please keep in mind though that whenever you give out personal information online there is a risk that third parties may intercept and use that information. While Healtheries strives to protect its user’s personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

If, as part of a registration or other process on our website, you are asked to choose a password, then you are responsible for maintaining its confidentiality. If you become aware of any unauthorised use of your password or any registration of yours, you should notify us at the address noted in the ‘How you can Contact Us’ section below.

Third Parties

Disclosing Personal Information to Third Parties

We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties without informing you in advance and in accordance with applicable data protection law, except as described below. Your data may be transferred to website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in designing and operating the website, executing services (for instance prize fulfilment) or help us analyze collected data. These parties will only use your data for the purpose of carrying out the work as indicated and will be required to keep the information confidential. We will also release personal data if such is required by law. We may also release your personal data to any third party if you have expressly authorised us to do so.
