“A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints.”

We want you to be happy about the use of your personal information. Here are our internet policies and practices we have adopted to protect your privacy.

We do not plan to modify our policies, however it is always advisable to double-check when you visit our site to be sure that you have read and agree with our most current policy statement. Any change in our privacy policy will be prospective only. We will not make any changes that have retroactive effect unless legally required to do so.

Collection

We only collect personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, email addresses, demographic information, interests, etc., when voluntarily submitted via application.

Use of Information and Disclosure

Providing personal information is up to you, our visitor. We will collect personally identifiable information provided by you to email you with updates and news, to respond to your questions or comments or travel requests, to send out brochures and other information on our products. We offer visitors an “opt-out” option at any time they wish to cease receiving emails or other information from our automated email service.

We never sell or give the information that you voluntarily provide us to any third party. It is used solely by us and our business partners to respond to your requests and to better serve you.

All credit card transactions on this site are processed using the internationally recognised Paypal, a reputable online gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. Your credit card details are not held by Manaaki Adventures NZ and cannot be accessed by ours staff.

Web Technologies

We use “cookie” technology and IP addresses only to obtain non-personal information from online visitors to provide them with the best possible personalised online experience. To do this we do keep track of the type of browser (e.g., Chrome, Firefox) and operating system (e.g., Windows, Macintosh) used by the visitor, and the domain name of the visitor’s internet service provider. We also track the total number of visitors to our site in an aggregate form to allow us to update and improve our site; personally identifiable information is not extracted in this process. This helps us keep our site fresh and relevant to our visitors. Cookie technology also helps us deliver content tailored to a visitor’s interests. You may disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do disable cookies, we may be unable to optimize your visit to our site and you may experience some errors.

When we link to other sites, we try to link only with partner sites that share our values. Nevertheless, we are not responsible for the content or information collection policies of other sites including any links from traveller homepages posted on the message boards. If you visit another site, you should review their privacy and other policies.
