Our commitment to you

Interpine (http://interpine.nz) is committed to protecting your privacy and to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation.  We are also committed to working with public policy organisations, industry groups and government institutions to understand and address these challenges as they arise.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.   An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Interpine Innovation wants to make your online experience satisfying and safe. Our data collection policies allow you to choose how much information to provide to us, and to control how we use that information. Our goal is to provide you with a robust online experience while allowing you to control your privacy.

Interpine Innovation collects information online primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. On other occasions such as when we provide items for purchase online, we may request your credit card number to conclude the transaction, or your mailing address to ensure proper delivery. We request this information to provide our strongest value to you – a personalized online experience.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.    If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.   These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


 Information collected online is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable:

  1. Anonymous Information refers to information that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. For instance, we may know that 10,000 people visit this Privacy Statement today, but we do not necessarily know their names, where they live, or their date of birth. What we collect from transactions such as this constitutes anonymous information, much like how your hometown’s bus service knows how many people take a given route – but doesn’t necessarily know who those people are. Many of the individuals who access our services decline to use the personalization features that are available to them, and therefore those individuals are anonymous to us and the data we collect is similarly anonymous information.
  2. Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, or postal address. In many cases we need this information to provide the personalized or enhanced service that have requested. Examples of use is you secure login name and password, which uses your name as part of a security mechanism to protect your secure zone from being read by anyone but you or those others authorized to see it.  The amount of Personally Identifiable Information that you choose to disclose to Interpine Innovation is completely up to you. In other words, we will know Personally Identifiable Information about you only if you choose to share this type of information with us.

What Personally Identifiable Information of yours is collected ?

When you surf the Internet, your Internet browser (such as Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome) automatically transmits some information to Interpine Innovation every time you access content on one of our sites. Examples of such information include the URL of the Web page you were just on (known as the “Refer”), the IP (or Internet Protocol) address of the computer you are using, or the browser version you are using to access our site. All of this information is collected by Interpine and is used to help improve our offerings to you. For instance, from this information we determined that few of our customers use older browser versions. Because of this we recently decided to enhance the quality of content available to all of our customers by using the advanced features of HTML that cannot be accessed from those older browser versions. All of the information that is automatically submitted to us by your browser is considered Anonymous Information.

Who we share your data with

Third Parties

If you do choose to share Personally Identifiable Information with Interpine, you can control whether we contact you or share the information with third parties, either through declarations you make at the time you share information with us, or through updates to your information in the Interpine Clientzone.  Interpine does reserve the right to send a confirmation email, and infrequent Service Alert messages to its customers to inform them of specific changes that may impact their ability to use a service they have previously signed up for, regardless of email contact opt-in status. An example of a Service Alert message would be notification of the impending closing of an account that is believed to be abandoned.

Finally, we also reserve the right to contact you if compelled to do so as part of a legal proceeding or if there has been a violation of our Terms of Service. Interpine Innovation is retaining these rights because in limited cases we feel that we may need the right to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters which will be important to you. These rights do not allow us to contact you to market a new or existing service if you have asked us not to do so, and issuance of these types of communications are rare.

How long we retain your data

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Interpine believes strongly in providing you with the ability to access and edit the personal information that you have provided to us.  To update the information retained about you, or to deactivate your account, please contact us.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

These protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under the company’s control.

The Interpine network operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

You the consumer are ultimately responsible for the security of your Interpine name and password. Please take care to store you Interpine name separately from your account password, or better yet, choose a password that you don’t need to write down at all.
