WHAT personal information DO WE COLLECT
Directly from you
We collect the following information directly from you.
When you fill in a contact or enquiry form on our website, call us, meet us in person or otherwise contact us, we collect your name, email address and any other information you choose to provide to us.
When you purchase products or services from us, we collect your name, email address, phone number, and any other information you submit to us for billing and order fulfilment purposes.
Some of the personal information that we collect directly from you may be mandatory and some may be optional. We will let you know which of these applies at the time we collect the relevant personal information. While you do not have to provide us with some of the information that we may request, this might mean that our products and services may not perform as well as they should, or that we may not be able to provide some parts of the website or all of our products or services to you. If you require further information about the consequences of not providing us with any information, please contact us at email@example.com.
Our counting systems
We specialise in counting and journeys, not surveillance. Our video systems do not retain or store any personal information. We obtain data using overhead video cameras, but the video that’s streamed into our system is only used to translate what it’s seeing into data points – for example, if you walk under a camera, you’ll be classified as a pedestrian. If you’re on a bike, the system will note you as a cyclist, and so on. The video is deleted after the count is made.
Automatically when you use our website
When you access and use our website or related services we may automatically collect information about your device and usage of our website, products and services, including your IP address, operating system, browser type, time spent on certain pages of the website, pages visited and links clicked.
From third party sources
Where possible, we collect personal information from you directly. However, sometimes we may collect:
▲ personal information that is publicly available (e.g. through LinkedIn profiles or public directories)
▲ personal information from third parties where you have authorised this.
We may combine the personal information about you that we receive from third parties with the personal information we collect from you directly or with device and usage data we collect automatically when you visit our website.
How we use your personal information
We may use your personal information to:
▲ provide our website, products and services to you
▲ market our products and services to you, including contacting you electronically (e.g. by text or email for this purpose)
▲ improve our website, products and services
▲ respond to communications from you, including enquiries and complaints
▲ conduct research and statistical analysis (on an anonymised basis)
▲ protect and/or enforce our legal rights and interests, including defending any claim
▲ respond to lawful requests by public authorities, including to comply with law enforcement requirements, or
▲ for any other purpose authorised by you or applicable law.
Where your employer uses our point of sale systems, we use personal information collected through those systems for the purpose of providing those systems to your employer.
We may transfer your information in the case of a sale, merger, consolidation, liquidation, reorganisation or acquisition.
You can stop receiving our marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in those emails or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
A business that supports our website, products and services may be located outside of New Zealand (the country where we are incorporated) and also outside of the country where you are located. This means that the personal information we collect may be transferred to, and stored in, a country outside of New Zealand and the country where you are located.
PROTECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
As required by applicable law, we will take steps to keep your personal information safe from loss, unauthorised activity, or other misuse. We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risks inherent in processing personal information.
ACCESSING AND CORRECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Subject to certain grounds for refusal under applicable law, you have the right to access your personal information that we hold and to request a correction to your personal information. Before you exercise this right, we will need evidence to confirm that you are the individual to whom the personal information relates.
Where you request a correction, if we think the correction is reasonable and we are reasonably able to change your personal information, we will make the correction. In all other cases, we will take reasonable steps to make a note of the personal information that was the subject of your correction request.
If you want to exercise either of the above rights, email us at email@example.com. Your email should provide evidence of who you are and set out the details of your request (e.g. the personal information to be corrected and the correction that you are requesting).
Subject to applicable law, we may charge you our reasonable costs of providing to you copies of your personal information or correcting that information.
While we take reasonable steps to maintain secure internet connections, if you provide us with personal information over the internet, the provision of that information is at your own risk.
DATA RETENTION POLICY
The personal information that we collect and use will not be kept longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is collected, or for the duration required for compliance with applicable law, whichever is longer.
