 Privacy of Data

What personal information do we collect? Lapco does hold the personal information of all customers. This includes name, email, address and phone number. This is used to validate account details on enquiries and tracking for business purposes


How do we use the personal information?

We may use the information to process your transactions, to administer your account and to help us to develop our website to be more available and user friendly to our customers, and for any other use which you may authorise. 


 Will we disclose the information to others?

We will treat the information we collect from you as strictly confidential. Other than as set out below, we will not reveal, disclose, pass on, sell, rent, distribute, share or licence to any third parties any personal information that you may have provided to us unless we have your express consent to do so. Lapco does not have any access to credit card or bank account information which is handled solely by the DPS website.


Who has access to this information?

Only authorised employees of Lapco are granted access to information gathered via the website. These employees in turn are only granted access to information that is needed for their specific job.


 When do we disclose this information?

To the person that is the owner of the information and no one else under any circumstances. New Zealand has very strict privacy laws and Lapco will adhere to them. Exceptions to this is when there are reasonable grounds to believe that disclosure is necessary to prevent a threat to life or health; where Lapco is required by law to provide your information.

What about links to other websites?

Our website may contain links to other sites that are not under our control. These websites may use cookies. It is the responsibility of those third parties to collect appropriate consents from you in order to permit their own cookies (to the extent this is required by law) and to inform you about the cookies they use. You should check the privacy policy on all third party websites to ensure you are comfortable with third party cookies. We have no responsibility for linked websites, and provide them solely for your information and convenience.
