You have a right to request to receive a copy of your details held, and to correct, amend, or delete these.

Newsletter subscribers may unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing list at any time, by using the unsubscribe button on the Site.  Members can ask for their account to be closed and their details removed from all records by contacting us, using the Contact Us form on the Site or emailing us, and making this request.  If you do not receive confirmation from us that this has been done, please follow-up and send a written request to the ChildForum, PO Box 58-078, Porirua 5245, NZ.

We will take all reasonable steps to protect the personal information that we hold from misuse, loss, or unauthorised access.  If you suspect any misuse or loss of, or unauthorised access to, your personal information, please let us know immediately. If you believe your privacy has been breached by us, or have any questions or concerns regarding the Privacy Policy, please contact us and provide details of the incident so we can investigate and make any necessary changes.

Contact details are collected strictly for use by ChildForum, with the following only possible exceptions:

  • sharing the name and email address details of ECE Service Providers members with MY ECE for My ECE's mailing list and inclusion on the My ECE website listing for the service.  (Please all ECE Service Members have their service contact details - website, phone number, and online contact form, included in their service’s listing on the My ECE website as a benefit of ChildForum membership). 
  • occasionally contact details held by ChildForum may be given to another member, where this is requested, if the request is communicated to be of a personal and potentially mutually benefiting nature (e.g., for collaboration on a research project or an invitation to be a speaker at an upcoming conference).

The publication of email addresses on this website does not give consent to unsolicited email. Any emails sent to ChildForum and/or to any individuals or organisations whose email addresses appear on this site must comply with the requirements of the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007 (Department of Internal Affairs' website).
