Respond Architects, a part of Prendos New Zealand Limited (“Prendos“) operates respondarchitects.co.nz and may operate other websites. It is Respond Architects’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Respond Architects collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Respond Architects’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Respond Architects’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Respond Architects may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Respond Architects also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on respondarchitects.co.nz blogs/sites. Respond Architects only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Respond Architects’ websites choose to interact with Respond Architects in ways that require Respond Architects to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Respond Architects gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at respondarchitects.co.nz to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Respond Architects are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Respond Architects collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Respond Architects. Respond Architects does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Respond Architects may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Respond Architects may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Respond Architects does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Respond Architects discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Respond Architects’ behalf or to provide services available at Respond Architects’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Respond Architects’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Respond Architects will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Respond Architects discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Respond Architects believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Respond Architects, third parties or the public at large.

Respond Architects takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
