Introduction

This is the privacy policy of MyHR.

We are MyHR Ltd (referred to in these Terms as "we", "us", "our" or "MyHR").

Our registered office is at 485c Rosebank Road, Avondale, Auckland, New Zealand.

You may contact us at info@myhr.co.nz

Our policy applies to information or data we collect about identifiable individuals (referred to in this policy as "personal information" or "information").

We are extremely concerned to protect the privacy of your personal information. We understand that all users of our website, software and/or services are quite rightly concerned to know that their personal information will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party.

Our policy has been developed to alleviate these concerns. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, please tell us.

Our policy explains:

1  what personal information we collect and how we collect it

2  how we store personal information

3  how long we retain personal information

4  how we use personal information and when we disclose it

5  our use of cookies

6  your rights to access and request corrections to personal information

7  how you may contact us

 

1 What personal information we collect and how we collect it

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the information we may collect:

-  basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details

-  your domain name, email address and information regarding your web browsing

-  information relating to your employment, including your role, salary and benefits

We may collect information through our website or when you contact us (or vice versa).

We may collect information which you or your employer upload to our HR management system, which your employer provides to us, or which is stored in a third party system which your employer uses and which is linked to our HR management system (for example, a third party payroll system).

We may also collect information by any other means permitted by applicable law.

 

2 How we store personal information

We use hosting services in New Zealand and internationally from time to time in jurisdictions (including Australia and Singapore) which we believe have privacy laws with safeguards at least comparable to those in New Zealand. Accordingly, information obtained in one country may be processed and stored within that country, or may be transferred and processed outside that country.

We have entered into arrangements requiring our hosting providers to keep the hosted information secure and confidential.

Where we store personal information ourselves, we adopt such security safeguards as are reasonable in the circumstances to protect it against loss, misuse or any unauthorised access, use, modification or disclosure.

 

3 How long we retain personal information

We will determine how long we will hold your personal information, except that we will not keep personal information for longer as is necessary to achieve the purpose for which we may lawfully use it.

 

4 How we use personal information and when we disclose it

We may use your personal information for any of the following purposes:

-  to provide services and products to you or your employer

-  to verify your identity for security purposes

-  to improve and market our services and products, including to send you news about our services or products or any other information we deem relevant or important to you

-  to correspond with you, including to consider and respond to any requests or complaints you may make

-  to aggregate the information with other information or data - for example, in order to compile salary survey data or data in relation to sick leave patterns

-  for any specific purpose which we notify you of at the time of collection

-  for any other purpose which you have consented to or which is permitted by applicable law

We may disclose your personal information:

-  to our affiliated/related companies

-  to our agents, service providers (including our hosting providers and payment processors), partners and any other relevant third parties to the extent necessary to carry out any of the purposes for which we may use your personal information (as outlined above)

-  to any person which we notify you of at the time of collection

-  to any person with your consent or who we are permitted by applicable law to disclose the information to

We may also publish, disclose, provide, use, license, sell, distribute, commercialise and exploit aggregated data which incorporates your personal information. However, we will not publish, disclose or provide to any third party any such aggregated data in a form where you are specifically identified and unless we have first taken reasonable steps to ensure that your identify cannot be identified or extracted from the data.

Except as specified above, we will not rent, sell or otherwise disclose any of your information to any person outside our business.
