The information we collect
Equinox operates the website http://www.equinox.co.nz. As part of our operations we may gather certain types of information about the users of our websites and services:
Personally identifiable Information. This is provided by you when you register for services that we may offer. Examples of these services could include email newsletter subscription, training course and event registration, and service provision. Providing this information will always be optional for you. However, some services may not be available to you if you choose not to provide it.
Aggregated Data. This information is generated by our systems as they track traffic through our websites. This information does not identify you personally and is not linked to the personally identifiable information that you may have provided.
Who we share this information with
Your details are securely stored by Equinox or our service providers. For any information stored with our service providers our agreements with them protect the information that we collect from any unauthorised use.
Personally identifiable information may be shared with business partners when Equinox has collected information for services we deliver together in partnership with that business partner (for example, a training course that Equinox is marketing and administering but a training business partner is delivering).
Outside of the circumstances outlined in point 2, we will not share personally identifiable information with business partners or any other third parties without your prior permission (which we would usually do at the time of collection).
The aggregated data (not the personally identifiable information) may be shared with third parties such as advertisers or business partners.
Your personally identifiable information may be shared with third parties when we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law.

To process any transactions that you might make on our website.
To help provide any other services that you have requested.
To offer the most relevant information suitable to you and your interests.
For any marketing, promotional, publicity, or market research that we might undertake.

Opting in and opting out
You will always have the option to opt in to certain services, such as our email marketing newsletter, and to opt out of those services at any stage.
