Applicable Law and Jurisdiction:

The effectiveness, performance, interpretation, and dispute resolution of these terms of service are governed by the laws of New Zealand. Disputes will be submitted to the Arbitration Commission in Auckland, and the arbitration award shall be final. If any provision of these terms is invalidated by conflicting local laws, it will not affect the validity of the remaining parts.

Complaints:

If you believe your privacy rights have been violated, or if you have any feedback, questions, or concerns about our privacy policy or practices, please contact us (see "How to Contact Us") and provide detailed information about the incident for investigation.

We have a process for investigating and addressing privacy violations. Upon receiving a complaint, our privacy officers will investigate with the relevant business departments. The investigation aims to identify the nature and cause of the violation. If a violation is found, privacy officers will work with senior management to correct processes to prevent further violations. We will also contact you to inform you of the investigation results. We strive to resolve all investigations within a reasonable timeframe.

Your request or complaint will be treated confidentially. Our representatives may contact you to discuss your concerns and outline options for resolution. We are committed to ensuring your complaint is resolved promptly and appropriately.

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that overseas entities receiving your personal information do not breach privacy obligations related to your information. We require overseas recipients to protect the information in a way that overall provides protection comparable to New Zealand's applicable regulations. These overseas recipients may disclose information we share with them under foreign laws. In such cases, we will not be responsible for that disclosure.

Effective Conditions:

Unless otherwise notified, this agreement is effective as of March 22, 2024.
