Fisher & Paykel Appliances Limited (“FPA”) takes the privacy of personal information seriously and is committed to giving effect to relevant privacy legislation and wants
you to be familiar with how we collect, use, disclose and protect any personal information you provide to us.
FPA collects general and anonymous statistical information when you browse through our websites, software applications and social media pages. This information does not identify you personally,
but is simply used to enable us to evaluate the performance of these platforms, allow us to assess statistical information on the overall experience of visitors to them and improve our advertising
campaigns. If we combine or connect this general and statistical information with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal
At certain times we may ask you to provide personal information (being any information about an individual from which that person can be identified) when using the Services, as described below.
We may need to collect and use the information because we are either legally required to do so, it is necessary for our legitimate interests or because we need it to provide the requested goods
or services to you. If you do not provide the information when requested this may result in certain goods or services not being available to you.
We may collect personal information (similar to the personal information outlined above) from you offline. For example when you visit one of our distribution networks (including retailers) or attend a trade
show or event we are represented at. In this case, we will collect such personal information as you choose to provide us.
We may receive personal information about you from publicly and commercially available sources (like public databases and our joint marketing partners) and other partners or third parties (provided it is permitted by,
and in compliance with, applicable laws). We may need to use the information because it is necessary for our legitimate interests or because we need it to provide the requested goods or services to you.
Please do not send us, or disclose, any sensitive data (e.g. information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the Services or otherwise to us.
We may use the personal information collected about you for the following purposes:
We may also use personal information for other additional purposes which we will specify at the time of collection. You may decide not to provide us with certain types of information, but doing so may affect your ability to use some Services.
We may need to collect and use some of the information as mentioned above because we are either legally required to do so, because it is necessary for us to provide you with the requested product or service, because it is necessary for our legitimate interests or we have acquired your consent.
For the purposes set out above, your personal information may be shared by us with:
We may also disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process (which may include laws outside your country of residence), (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials (which may include authorities outside your country of residence), or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.
We may also use, disclose or transfer your personal information to a third party in the event of any reorganisation, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).
We may also, with your consent, use and disclose your personal information in other ways.
Your personal information may be stored and/or processed in a country (which may be outside of the EEA) where we (including companies in the Fisher and Paykel group of companies) or our external third parties who provide services to us are based and/or operate from, and by using the Services you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal information.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring we only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal information by the European Commission or we put in place adequate measures such as standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
We may use third party advertising companies to serve, or directly serve, advertisements regarding products and services provided by FPA that may be of interest to you when you access and use the Services, other web sites or online services.
These targeted advertisements are a result of profiling that we do which involves processing or analysing data on a partially automated basis. This may involve analysing or using data relating to your access to, and use of, the Services, other websites or online services on any of your devices (including, for example, data captured by placing or recognising a unique cookie on your browser), as well as information or data received from third parties.
The aim is to provide you with content that is relevant and interesting for you and provide you with a more pleasant user experience when surfing the Internet.
We may provide links to other web sites for your convenience and information. These sites may have their own privacy statements in place, which we recommend you review if you visit any linked web sites. We are not responsible for the content of linked sites or any use of such sites.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use of disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Please contact us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below if you want further information in relation to the retention of your personal information.
FPA is committed to protecting your privacy. We use a variety of technologies, systems and procedures to protect against unauthorised disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the personal information you provide on this Service and keep the personal information you provide on this Service secure. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify the relevant people as we are legally required to do so.
