This means that You must take reasonable steps to ensure the individual concerned is aware of and consents to the terms of this Policy, including the fact that their personal information is being collected, the purposes for which that information is being collected and used, the intended recipients of that information, the individual’s right to obtain access to that information, Career Central’s identity, and how to contact Career Central.

Where requested to do so by Career Central, You must also assist Career Central with any requests by the individual to access or update their personal information You have collected from them and entered into the Service.

Career Central takes steps to protect your personal information

Career Central is committed to protecting the security of Your personal information and we take reasonable precautions to protect it from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Your personal information is stored on secure servers that have SSL Certificates issued by leading certificate authorities, and all Data transferred between You and the Service is encrypted.

However, the Internet is not in itself a secure environment and we cannot give an absolute assurance that Your information will be secure at all times. Transmission of personal information over the Internet is at Your own risk and You should only enter, or instruct the entering of, personal information to the Service within a secure environment.

In the event of a ‘notifiable privacy breach’, we will be required by law to notify the Privacy Commissioner and you, if you are an affected individual, of the privacy breach, unless a legal exception applies.


Career Central only discloses Your Personal Information in limited circumstances

Career Central will only disclose the personal information You have provided to us to entities outside the Career Central Company if it is necessary and appropriate to facilitate the purpose for which Your personal information was collected pursuant to this Policy, including the provision of the Service.

Career Central will not otherwise disclose Your personal information to a third party unless You have provided Your express consent.

The third parties who host our servers do not control, and are not permitted to access or use Your personal information except for the limited purpose of storing the information. This means that Career Central does not currently “disclose” personal information to third parties located overseas.

[If Career Central does need to disclose or transfer your Personal Information to a third party recipient outside of New Zealand in connection with one or more of the Purposes, then you consent to the disclosure of your Personal Information to the third party recipient. Career Central will ensure that the overseas recipient is:

(i)             A participant in a prescribed binding scheme for international disclosures of personal information and/or is located in a country that provides comparable safeguards to New Zealand’s privacy laws; and

(ii)            If not, then Career Central will take reasonable steps to ensure that the overseas recipient is required to protect your Personal Information in a way that, overall, provides comparable safeguards to those required under the applicable privacy laws. Examples of these steps include a written agreement between us and the overseas recipient or making reasonable enquiries regarding the data protection standards of the country in which the overseas recipient is located. ]

Career Central will disclose Your Personal Information if required by law.


You may request access to Your personal information

It is Your responsibility to ensure that the personal information You provide to us is accurate, complete and up-to-date. You may request access to the information we hold about You, or request that we update or correct any personal information we hold about You, by setting out Your request in writing and sending it to us at [email protected].

Career Central will process Your request within 20 working days after the date Career Central receives your request, provided we are not otherwise prevented from doing so on legal grounds. If we are unable to meet Your request, we will let you know why. For example, it may be necessary for us to deny Your request if it would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy or affairs of other individuals, or if it is not reasonable and practicable for us to process Your request in the manner You have requested. In some circumstances, it may be necessary for us to seek to arrange access to Your personal information through a mutually agreed intermediary (for example, the Subscriber).

We’ll only keep Your personal information for as long as we require it for the purposes of providing You with the Service.
