Privacy and Safety Policy

This Website Privacy Policy applies to this website which is operated by or on behalf of Kiwi Kids News Ltd under the domain name (“Website”). We respect the privacy of the personal information of visitors to our Website.

The Website Privacy Policy is current at the date of collection and will be the relevant privacy notice in relation to personal information collected on that date.

In addition to the provisions of this Website Privacy Policy, there may also be specific and additional privacy provisions that apply to certain sections of the Website. Because those specific and additional provisions also relate to your privacy, we recommend that you review them wherever they appear. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of this Website Privacy Policy and those other specific and additional provisions, the specific and additional provisions will apply.

Once any personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
