Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which NZ Mega 2020 collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users of the website ("site"). This policy applies to the site and all products and services offered by NZ Mega Auckland 2013.

Personal Information

We may collect personal information from users in a variety of ways, including (but not limited to) when users access our site, register, place an order, subscribe to the mailing list, or fill out a form.

Users may be asked for personal details such as (but not limited to) name, email address, mailing address, or credit card information, when appropriate.

Users can choose to visit the site anonymously and can choose not to provide personal information. However, this may prevent them from engaging in certain site-related activities (for example, completing a purchase or attending the mega event).

We may also collect non-personal identification information about users whenever they interact with our site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about how users connect to the site.

Information Disclosure

We will not disclose any of your personal information to any third party unless you have authorised us to do so. Note that, if deemed necessary, by submitting any expression of interest and/or registration for the NZ Mega 2020 event automatically authorises us to disclose information, as required, to Groundspeak solely for the purposes of securing and maintaining mega status for the event, and for no other purpose.

Use of Collected Information

We may use personal information provided by users to improve the site and products related to the site, as well as to process payments. The information may also be used to run a promotion, survey, or competition, or to send out periodical emails. The email address provided by the user can be used for regular newsletter updates or to respond to inquiries and other requests. If, at any time, a user wishes to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email, or the user may contact us via our site.

Protection of Information

We follow appropriate data collection and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of the users' personal information and any data stored on the website, including usernames, passwords and transaction information.

Web Browser Cookies

Our site may use "cookies" to enhance the user experience. A cookie is a small piece of code that is stored on your computer by a web browser and contains bits of information such as user preferences, shopping cart contents, etc. Cookies are not viruses nor spam and exist to make your navigation easier. We use only temporary cookies, meaning that they expire once you close your browser. The user may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the site may not function properly.


Our site may provide links to other sites, typically sponsors, whenever considered appropriate and useful. When you click on one of those links, you are leaving the NZ Mega 2020 site and entering another site, meaning our safety measures can no longer apply. When accessing another site through a link on the NZ Mega 2020 website, we recommend you view the privacy statements and policies of that site, as they may differ from our policy.

Third-Party Websites

Users may find advertising or other content on our site that link to the sites and services of our sponsors or other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these third-party sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our site.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

NZ Mega 2020 has the discretion to update this privacy policy at any time. When we do, we will revise the "updated" date at the bottom of this page. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this privacy policy periodically and become aware of modifications.

By using the NZ Mega 2020 website, you signify your acceptance of our privacy policy. Your continued use of the site following the posting of any changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.

If you believe that NZ Mega 2020 has not strictly adhered to these terms and conditions or if you have any questions about the policy stated above, please contact us.
