Terms And Conditions

Open Doors New Zealand recognises that privacy is very important to you and that you have a right to control your personal information. We know that providing personal information is an act of trust and we take that very seriously. 

Open Doors is committed to complying with The Privacy Act by the New Zealand Privacy Commissioner (see www.privacy.org.nz for more details). We will also comply with any laws introduced to strengthen protections for consumers' privacy. 

For trading/registration purposes, Open Doors (New Zealand) Incorporated is a registered charity in New Zealand CC24946.

Our Commitment To You

  • We will only collect personal information from our supporters with their prior knowledge and consent
  • We will only use personal information provided by our supporters for the purposes for which it was collected (for example: mailing information we believe will interest them, prayer alerts, news about persecuted Christians and the ministry of Open Doors, etc.)
    • Open Doors will monitor and restrict the amount and frequency of educational and marketing material sent to supporters and allow supporters to remove their name from mailing lists

  • We may occasionally supply supporters' personal information to an agency, engaged by us, for the purposes referred to above, but this will always be on the basis that the agency must not use the information for any other purpose and must immediately destroy the information once the task is completed. Otherwise, we will not disclose supporters' personal information to third parties without their consent; nor will Open Doors sell, trade, barter, rent or exchange mailing lists of our supporters to any other organisation
  • We will not disclose supporters' personal information to other institutions and authorities except if required by law
  • Open Doors is committed to allowing supporters to see and correct information that is shown to be incorrect or outdated. We will provide supporters with a copy of their personal information in our records within 14 days of a written request
  • We protect the personal information that we have under our control from unauthorised access, improper use, or alteration by restricting access to our files and database to only those personnel responsible for their maintenance and proper use
    • Open Doors has put procedural, physical and electronic means in place to safeguard the personal information of our supporters. Open Doors has also verified the security and privacy provisions of other organisations with whom we provide information about supporters. These include our banks and mailing house. 
    • Supporters' information is kept both in hard copy and electronic forms. In either case, Open Doors has documented procedures to safeguard this information. Safeguards include storing secure copies and backups. 
    • Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption is used when collecting or transferring credit card information via the internet, ensuring a secure environment for the transfer of confidential data from the user's browser to our financial institutions.

We also may use third-party website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) that collect information about visitor traffic on our site and micro-sites. The information we may collect by automated means includes:
    • Information about the devices our visitors use to access the Internet (such as the IP address and the device, browser and operating system type).
    • URLs that refer visitors to our sites.
    • Dates and times of visits to our sites.
    • Information on actions taken on our sites (such as page views and site navigation patterns).

    • Search terms that visitors use to reach our sites.

  • We may use third-party software to send marketing communications to contacts who have provided consent to receive marketing communications.

Overfunding

Our goal is to always send your funds to the cause or region you have indicated an interest in supporting. In some cases these regions and projects can be fully funded. When that's the case, to avoid your donation sitting in a suspended donation fund, we reallocate any extra funds to where most needed worldwide.
