Fossil Ridge Web Site Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of the users of our site.

This privacy policy will advise you about how we protect your personal information, and about what choices you have concerning our use of such information. Please read this policy carefully. We may need to change this policy from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our site. We will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose that information to anyone.

If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, please send us an e-mail to: info@fossilridge.co.nz.

Personal Identification Information

We will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user (such as, for example, your full name, street address, telephone number or e-mail address) to any third party without having received your permission. We may request personal identification information from you in connection with your use of our services.

If you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments. We may file your comments for future reference, or we may discard the information after we have reviewed it. We may also contact you to confirm your registration for services.

If you give us your permission, we may also use personal identification information for internal or external marketing and promotional purposes. On occasion, for example, we may send you e-mails to introduce a product or service that we think might be of interest to the users of our site. For us to obtain your permission to send you this information, we will give you an opportunity to "opt-in" at the time your request for legal services is made. If you do "opt-in," you may choose to "opt-out" at any time, even after you have provided personal information, by following the procedures set forth below at the end of this Privacy Policy. Please note, however, that under certain circumstances, if you initially do not choose to "opt-in," or if you later "opt-out," you may not be eligible for certain benefits for which a name, e-mail address, telephone number or other personal identification information is needed.

We have the following exceptions to these policies: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the Fossil Ridge website, or a physical threat to you or others.

Please note that if you give out personal information online, for example, through a message board or chat room, that information can be collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users' privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you post in these forums. You disclose such information at your own risk.

Privacy of Children

Fossil Ridge understands that young people need special safeguards and privacy protection. We realise that they may not understand all the provisions of our policy or be able to make thoughtful decisions about the choices that are made available to our adult users. We urge all parents to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online.

We have therefore adopted the following special policies to protect the privacy of users who are under 13 years old:

Links To Other Sites

Users may from time to time find advertising or other content on this site that links to the sites and services of other third parties. The links may represent cooperative projects or are simply mutual links established with persons or entities connected with our site or subject matter. Although we initially visit the sites or services that are so linked, we do not control the contents or links that appear on these sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.

Security Policy

Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. We have taken careful measures to secure both your information and our physical premises.

Access To / Correction of Information

If you would like to review any personal information we have retained about you in our database, please send us an e-mail request for this information at info@fossilridge.co.nz. Once you have reviewed this information, at your request we will correct personal information about you that you state is erroneous. To request such a correction, please send an e-mail to info@fossilridge.co.nz.

Choice / Opt-Out

If you "opt-in" to receive information from Fossil Ridge, you can change your mind later. If at any time you would like to stop receiving such information, you can let us know by sending an e-mail stating your preference to info@fossilridge.co.nz.

Your Acceptance of these Terms

By using this site, you signify your acceptance of our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our site. Your continued use of the Fossil Ridge website following the posting of changes to these terms will mean that you accept those changes.
