We try very hard to respect the privacy of visitors to our site. Skills Active Aotearoa will not sell or share any personally identifiable information volunteered on this site, or shared with us by form submission, to any third party without your consent.

Your privacy is important to us. For that reason, we stick to a few general principles on this site:

  1. We don’t ask for personal information unless we need it
  2. We don’t share personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or official government requests, to develop our services, or to protect our rights
  3. We don’t store personal information unless we need it to carry out our business
  4. In our services, we aim to make it simple for you to control your information.

Important! The Privacy Act has changed.

We've recently updated our privacy policy in line with the new Privacy Act 2020.

The changes reflect a move to provide greater protection for individuals information online, and clearer guidance for organisations like Skills Active on what to do if a privacy breach occurs.

The changes include the requirement to report serious privacy breaches to the Privacy Commissioner, and to affected people.
