Privacy policy

Updated – February 2020

The KIWA Cultural Intelligence Application allows you to develop your understanding of Te Reo Māori, Tikanga, kawa and Māori customs and concepts.
You do not have to put any of your personal information directly into the application, however, you may find it useful to fill out the ‘pepeha’ which is a personalized introduction/greeting.

In addition, you can fill out the Cultural Competence Self-Assessment and Development Plan to measure your personal progress and manage your learning time effectively.
Any personal information entered into the application will be stored locally and securely in the application. Any information entered into the application will be deleted when you delete the application.

Google, Apple, and Microsoft will receive the general usage information from the use of the application by MSD staff however this will be at an aggregate level and no personal information about a particular individual will be shared.

Kiwa and MSD will not have access to any of your personal information entered into the application. However, you can ask for a copy of any personal information MSD holds about you generally and ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong.
If you have any questions, or if you’d like to ask for a copy of your information, or have it corrected, please contact [email protected]

Kiwa Digital Limited (‘KIWA’) values the protection of your personal information. KIWA’s mobile apps, digital books, website, and other platforms are collectively referred to as ‘our content’. This privacy policy applies to all of our content and has been created to inform you about how we collect, use, and protect your data.

Non-Personal Information
We use technologies like cookies (small files stored by your browser), web beacons, and device IDs to anonymously identify your computer or device. The technical information that we collect (such as details about a browser, operating system, IP address, or software attributes) tells us about your interactions with our content and allows us to deliver a better user experience.

We also collect information that is commercially available from data aggregators. Companies like App Annie may access non-personal information (such as your IP address or device ID) on our behalf. These companies supply us with anonymous usage and performance data. They do not collect information about individual users and are subject to relevant privacy legislation and regulations.

Personal Information
KIWA does not generally collect or store information such as your name, email address or phone number. We do not collect information about your precise geographic location.

KIWA only collects personal information if you voluntarily submit this information to us. You may do this by requesting products or services, asking for technical support, accessing our content through social networking sites, or through other means. We use personal information for the purposes for which it was supplied. For example, if you contact us via email, we will only use the information to respond to your request or query.

Our content is intended for sale to adults. Our apps may contain links that allow customers to access social networking sites, our website, and external stores. These links are located within gated areas (i.e. they are accessible to adults correctly answering a question, supplying a password such as an Apple ID, or through other controls) to limit the circumstances in which personal information may be volunteered.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you believe we have inadvertently collected such information (e.g. if you become aware that your child has supplied personal information without your consent), please contact us so we can delete this information.

Sharing Your Information
KIWA does not sell, distribute, rent, license, disclose or reveal, share or pass on your personal information to third parties. Any data you voluntarily supply to us is not shared with other organizations without your permission. We take reasonable precautions to protect information from loss or misuse. Please keep in mind that no information transmitted over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Disclosure of Information
We may make anonymous and personal information available to other parties in these limited circumstances: with your express consent; when required to do so by law; when we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to protect our rights or property; to any successor or purchaser in a merger, acquisition, liquidation, dissolution or sale of assets. Your consent will not be required for disclosure in all of these cases, but we will attempt to notify you, to the extent we are permitted by law to do so.

Your Consent
By using our content you consent to the collection and use of your data as outlined in this policy. If we make changes to our privacy policy, we will revise the date at the bottom of this page. Your continued use of our products, services, and website following the posting of changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
