What personal information do you collect?

The term “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy has the same meaning as defined in the New Zealand Privacy Act 2020 ("Privacy Act"). In general terms, this includes any information that can be used to personally identify you.

Generally, the type of Personal Information which we collect may include (but is not limited to) your first and last name, age, gender, address, contact details (including phone numbers and email addresses) (“Contact information”), images of you, your biometric data and financial information, including your payment information. If the information we collect personally identifies you, or you are reasonably identifiable from it (for example, if we combine seemingly anonymous data with other personal information, we hold about you), then the information is considered personal information.

Our preference is to collect Personal Information from you directly. For example, when you:

  • Your payment method and details of items purchased, including style and size preferences.
  • Video footage or still images, where our stores operate video surveillance systems (wherever you see video surveillance systems and/or a sign notifying you “CCTV IN OPERATION” or similar, including in-store and in our carparks).
  • The number plate of the vehicle you have used to visit our store, if that store uses an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system.
  • Details of the products (including clothing and footwear sizes) and services that you have purchased from us or have shown interest in.
  • Payment information and tokenised card data, in order to facilitate the payment for the goods and/or services.
  • Where you have or intend to purchase goods and or services which need to be obtained at a later date (for example, from another store location), or you have purchased an additional warranty or support, we may collect your Contact Information).
  • If you access our in-store WiFi, we collect your name, email address, marketing opt-in preference, device identifier, device operating system, and your web browser settings.

  • Details of the products and services that you have not purchased, but have shown interest in.
  • Any third party membership identifier.
