• to banks and financial institutions in accordance with your Direct Debit Request and/or Credit Card Authority;
• where Chrisco has outsourced functions (for example, information technology) or otherwise uses third party contractors to provide our goods and services or to facilitate our ability to do so (for example: external mailing houses or contact centre services, delivery personnel, New Zealand Post, labour hire or resource augmentation service providers or hosting servers). For us to operate our business we may share your personal information with such third-party contractors. At all times we seek to protect your personal information including by endeavouring to ensure that our third party contractors are required to comply with the applicable Privacy Laws and also seeking to ensure that they and their individual employees are aware of the need to comply with our privacy policies and requirements and also to comply with general confidentiality obligations in relation to any information that is made available to them as a result of their engagement by Chrisco; or
• to your nominated agent (for example, we may share your contact details with them).
There may be circumstances where we need to disclose personal information that we hold about you to a third party overseas.  Such countries are likely to include Australia; however, web hosting services may be outside Australia and New Zealand.
This may occur, for example, where:
• we have a database or server hosted outside New Zealand (or where our third-party IT contractors or service providers may likewise have a database or server hosted outside New Zealand);
• providing information to our related entities outside New Zealand.
You can find more information on these terms here.
Chrisco is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information. Personal information may be stored electronically and, in some cases, hard copy format. Where possible, we use encryption technology, privacy protection controls and restrictions on employee access in order to maximise our ability to safeguard your personal information. Where we no longer require your personal information, we will endeavour to as soon as reasonably possible destroy or permanently delete such personal information. 
Please note as well that as an entity subject to Privacy Laws, in the event that there is an eligible data breach (as that term is defined in the Privacy Laws), we may have obligations to disclose this, and other surrounding circumstances and information, to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner. 
You can request access to your personal information by contacting us through the contact details listed below. Before we are able to provide you with access to your personal information, we will require some proof of identity.

If any of the personal information you have provided to us changes (for example, if you move or change your phone number), please let us know so that we can update your personal information.
If you find any inaccuracies in your personal information, please let us know.
In the case of access and correction requests, please provide as much detail as you can about the information you seek, in order to help us retrieve it.
