Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy of LEARNSPRING LTD ("Parent Interviews") is designed to explain to you how your information is collected, used, and protected. By using any of Parent Interviews's websites or services you signify your consent to our collection and use of personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. Parent Interviews will post the most recent version of this Privacy Policy on the parentinterviews.co.nz website ("Base Domain").

What Information Do We Collect?

When visiting any website maintained by Parent Interviews you may provide Parent Interviews with two types of information (i) personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and (ii) website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you browse a Parent Interviews maintained website.

Participating schools that disclose personal information to Parent Interviews do so with the authorisation of the individuals involved. Parent Interviews uses any personal information provided only in relation to the purpose for which it was provided. Schools may provide additional information about the institution (billing contacts, time zone, and system configuration) and basic information about the teachers and classes that are needed to provide Parent Interviews services.

Any information related to students entered by parents accounts are retained for the lifecycle of the school event. Once a school event closes, the event and any associated interviews, parents, and students are removed from our systems within 60 business days.

Our website serves as a channel for Parent Interviews to share information about our services. We collect information on our website from visitors who may wish to purchase our services or seek support. A visitor to our website may elect to leave their contact information if they'd like us to get in touch.

Like most websites, our website uses automatic data collection technology (Google Analytics) when you visit our website or use the services. We may collect information such as your IP address, Internet service provider, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of the website you visit, number of links you click while on the website, search terms, operating system, website traffic and related statistics, keywords and/or other data.

Information Storage

All information Parent Interviews collects is stored in Parent Interviews's databases and may be kept indefinitely. Although Parent Interviews makes all reasonable efforts to store collected information in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, Parent Interviews cannot and does not guarantee the security of collected information or that the public will not be able to access such information.

You are entitled to access personal information that we hold about you. You can ask us to correct any errors or delete the information we have about you. Upon request, which you can indicate by contacting us, we will provide you with a readable copy of the personal data which we keep about you within five business days. We will provide this information without any charge. We allow you to challenge the data that we hold about you and, where appropriate, you may have this data erased, rectified or amended and completed. You are entitled to opt-out of any further contact from Parent Interviews. To protect your privacy and the privacy of others, we may have to verify your identity before we can give you access to, or change, information about you.

Privacy Protection

If you create either a school, teacher, or parent account or register with Parent Interviews, your account information may be password protected. For school and teacher accounts, please create a strong password and keep in a safe place. If you have forgotten your password, Parent Interviews will only send password reset instructions to the registered holder of the account.

Parent Interviews or users of our websites may provide links to third party websites, which may have different privacy policies. Parent Interviews does not have any control over the privacy policies of those third party websites, and we encourage all users to read the privacy policies of each and every website visited.

Like many businesses, we hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, hosting services, or processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. When personal information is required, the information is encrypted where possible to provide the service; otherwise, we require the vendors to implement the same commitments to safeguarding personal information that we do.

If all or substantially all of our assets are acquired, we expect that the information that we have collected, including personal information, would be transferred along with our other business assets. We will allow a successor entity to maintain the existing personal information, in the case of our merger or acquisition by another entity, provided the successor entity is subject to these same commitments for the previously collected personal information.

We may disclose your information to government authorities, and to other third parties when compelled to do so by government authorities or required by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas.
