This privacy statement describes UNICEF NZ's policy concerning the gathering and sharing of visitors’ information through the UNICEF NZ web site. By visiting the UNICEF NZ website you are accepting the practices described in this policy.

What information does UNICEF NZ collect?

In general, you can browse the UNICEF NZ site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.

If you register for a newsletter, log on to certain UNICEF sites, order a book or other merchandise, request information, provide feedback, apply for a job, join a discussion group or join an electronic mailing list, you will be asked to provide personal information such as your name, postal address and e-mail address. This information is collected only with your knowledge and permission, and is kept in UNICEF NZ databases. If you are purchasing something on the web, you may be asked to provide your credit card details.
