A cookie is a small piece of information held in a text file that is passed to a user’s web browser when they access a website. The cookie is usually stored on the user’s hard drive.
There are lots of uses for cookies, the main one being to allow a web server to identify a user and deliver customised web pages when the user revisits a web page.
Cookies are regularly used by most websites and are industry standard.
If a customer does not want information collected in cookies the customer should disable cookies in their internet browser.
It may be necessary to disclose personal information in certain situations where we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone who we believe is infringing our intellectual property rights or illegally using (including for the purposes of money laundering or terrorism purposes) the Realestate Funders website. We may also disclose information when we believe in good faith that we would be required to do so under New Zealand law.
We may engage third parties to provide some of the Realestate Funders services to you. Where we do this we may need to disclose your personal information to those third parties in order to provide you with these services.

- ACCURACY OF INFORMATION
You can generally access and request the correction of information we hold about you by contacting us in any of the ways set out at the bottom of this policy.
Notwithstanding, access to your Personal Information may be refused on some occasions, such as where the information relates to anticipated legal proceedings or if the request for access is frivolous or vexatious. If we deny or restrict your access, we will write to you to let you know why, unless, having regard to the grounds for the refusal, it would be unreasonable for us to do so. You may make a complaint about a refusal to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner at: www.privacy.org.nz
We rely on the information that we hold about you to provide our products and services to you, and to perform our business functions. Therefore, it is very important that the information we hold is accurate, complete, up to date and relevant for its intended use. This means that, from time to time, we may ask you if your information is still accurate and up to date. If you find that any information that we hold about you is incorrect, you should contact us immediately and we will take reasonable steps to correct it.
Realestate Funders will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that you have given us is protected. We will also make our best efforts to keep that information secure on our systems.
Realestate Funders employees are required to keep customer personal information confidential.
