- Assisting to identify you when you email us to make an enquiry.
- Responses to enquiries from you
- Administration and contact about improved administration of any accounts, services and products provided by us previously, now or in the future

Protection of information
We maintain strict security measures in order to protect your personal information. This includes certain procedures such as encrypting data on our websites and compliance with all applicable legal requirements.
When you provide personal information online it is protected by encryption, so it cannot be read as it is transmitted over the internet between your browser and our server. The encrypted data is transmitted using a 128-bit secure socket layer (SSL) connection.
Access to personal information
The Privacy Act 1993 gives you the right to access and correct personal information held by us. Your information is held securely and will not be disclosed to any other person or organisation unless authorised by you. To query or access any personal information we hold, contact us at email@example.com
If you communicate with us over the internet, we may use email to contact you about our services and products. Please be aware that communications over the internet, such as by email or through webmail applications, are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may route through a number of countries before being delivered. This is the nature of the internet. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information that is beyond our control.
We may use ‘cookies’ to monitor website traffic patterns and site usage: a small piece of information stored on your computer so that the next time you visit we can customise the options available to you. The information gathered does not personally identify you.
If you do not want us to deploy cookies in your browser, you can change your computer settings to reject cookies or to notify you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer. Please be aware that rejecting cookies may affect your ability to use some of the products and/or services on our website.
We may monitor and record communications we receive. This may be done for:
- identifying improvements the service which we provide
- ensuring compliance with our practices and procedures
- situations where, for example, a contract is entered into by that means, to provide evidence of the transaction.
Credit card details
When you pay INTERNPREP using a credit card online or by phone, your personal information and credit card details are not stored by INTERNPREP.
INTERNPREP free and paid members agree to abide by the above rules.
The Member understands that the information provided may be used by the INTERNPREP for administrative purposes and for the purpose of providing the Member with information relating to products and services from time to time.
This Policy applies to personal information held about individuals. It does not apply to information we hold about companies and other organisations. The Office of the Privacy Commissioner has further details of the New Zealand Privacy Act and how it protects personal information in New Zealand.
