Privacy Policy


Personal information and details you give us when applying for a user account are collected to assist you when for example, you have lost your account information, and to control your access to areas of the website you are or are not entitled to access.

You have a right to request to receive a copy of your details held by ChildForum and to correct, amend, or delete these. If you are a member with a member account you may also view details associated with your account by logging in and viewing your profile or account detail page.

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

  • sharing the name and email address details members with MY ECE for My ECE's mailing list and ECE service member contact details for inclusion on the My ECE website listing for the service.  (Please note that ChildForum provides ECE Service Members with free listing of service contact details - website, phone number, and online contact form, on the My ECE website as a benefit of membership). 
  • occasionally and this is not a routine practice, member names and contact details may be forwarded to other organisations to allow eligibility for membership discount scheme benefits to be determined and checked; and/or to enable scheme providers to make contact with interested members.
  • 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 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).

You may ask for your details to be removed from mailing and membership lists at any time. This request should be in writing to ChildForum, PO Box 58-078, Whitby, Porirua 5245, NZ.


If you believe your privacy has been breached by us, or have any questions or concerns in regard to the Privacy Policy, please contact us and provide details of the incident so that we can investigate and put right any problem that may have occurred.


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. 


This website uses cookies. Cookies are used in order to improve your experience and keep your session. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can set your browser so that your computer does not accept them.

We use cookies for such things as verifying your account and keeping your account safe, for site security, enabling you to access certain areas without logging-on, measuring traffic patterns and to help us learn which articles are most popular and identify features that could be improved.  

We may also log IP addresses (the electronic addresses of computers connected to the internet) to analyse trends, administer the website, track user movements, and gather broad demographic information.

We may also collect anonymous data (which is not personal information) relating to your activity on our website via cookies, or we may collect information from you in response to a survey.


ChildForum can make changes, for legal or administrative reasons, to the Privacy Policy at any time.
