Collecting Your Information
We're always aiming to improve what we do and the more we know about you, the better we can serve you. Further to this, by using the Site you consent to Altus NZ Limited collecting, using, storing and processing your personal information in accordance with this privacy policy. We will collect personal information in a variety of ways, including information provided to us by you when filling out our contact form and information communicated to us by you through any direct communication you have with us.
Altus NZ Limited may also use available technology to determine which areas of the Site you visit and the activities which you participate in. This information will be used for the purposes of managing your account, business development, trend analysis and marketing. If Altus NZ Limited should decide to change its privacy policy, those changes will be published on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.

Use of Personal Information
The personal information that you supply to us through the Site enables us to personalise and improve your experience and relationship with us. It gives us a greater understanding of you, so that we can ensure you are offered services to the best of our ability, and so that we, and third parties (including advertisers, business partners and sponsors) with which we have a business relationship, can provide you details of services and promotions that we feel would be of interest to you.  

Disclosing Information
Altus NZ Limited may share information about visitors in aggregate with third parties including advertisers, business partners and sponsors, to understand visitor trends and patterns, and to manage and improve our service. Such information will be anonymous so that visitor's privacy is protected.

Altus NZ Limited may disclose your information in response to a threat of legal proceedings as for example in response to a Court Order or a subpoena. Further, if Altus NZ Limited is requested by the police or any regulatory or government authority investigating suspected illegal activities to provide your personal information or other data collected about you and/or information concerning your activities whilst using the Site we shall do so. We also reserve the right to disclose individually identifiable information to third parties where a complaint arises concerning your use of the above website, and that use is deemed by us to be inconsistent with the terms and conditions.

It is possible that Altus NZ Limited could merge with or be acquired by another business entity. Should such a combination occur, you should expect that Altus NZ Limited would share some or all of your information in order to continue to provide the service. You will receive notice of such event (to the extent it occurs) and we will require that the new combined entity follow the privacy practices which you have agreed to on registration with us.

You should notify Altus NZ Limited immediately if the security of these devices is breached to prevent the unauthorised use and/or disclosure of your personal information.

This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and partners that may use our logo as part of a co-branding agreement.
