We – YWAM Furnace New Zealand (YFNZ) – regard your privacy as important. Our primary source of personal information about you is when you submit it to us yourself and give us your explicit consent. By visiting our website (www.ywamfurnace.nz), initiating contact with us, or starting an application for one of our training programs or events (collectively, the “Services”), you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy.
We will normally collect personal information from you only where we need the personal information to provide our Services to you; where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights; or where we have your consent to do so. For example, when responding to your queries or if you apply to one of our training programs. This is the information we collect and why:
Information you give us.
Information we receive from other sources.
What about analytics?
We’ve made a conscious decision to not collect personal data unless it’s needed to follow up with you after you first initiated contact with us. Our site analytics (Google Analytics) is anonymized so that all data that we use for website statistics is anonymous and can’t be traced back to who you are.
We may share the information we collect in the following ways:
We may also share information publicly on our website or through social media with your explicit consent in the form of testimonials, reviews, or your general experience attending our programs.
We may store your information in hard copy or electronic format, in storage facilities which we own and operate ourselves, or that are owned and operated by our service providers.
YFNZ is committed to protecting your information. To do so, we employ a variety of security technologies and measures designed to protect information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. However, please bear in mind that the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
We retain your personal data for so long as is necessary with regard to the purposes for which it was collected or lawfully further processed, or for so long as may be necessary in light of our legal obligations (for example, to provide you with our Services or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).
If you are a resident of the EEA, you have the data protection rights included in the GDPR which include the following (read it in full here):
We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about how we handle or store your personal data. All means of getting in touch with us are listed on our website’s contact page and you can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
