The Z Group is committed to protecting our customers' personal information.
'Personal information' is information about an identifiable individual (a natural person) which is in a form which enables that person to be identified.
This page was last updated on: 29 July 2019.
We collect information relating to you that you have provided to us (for example, on an application or registration form, or through the way you use our products and services) or that we may have obtained from another source with your consent (such as a loyalty partner or a credit agency where you have authorised us to conduct a credit check).
This information may include your name, address, telephone numbers, payment details or other financial information, information on how you use our products and services, membership of loyalty programmes and any other information collected in relation to your use of our products and services.
If you have applied for Z Business Partner and quote your membership or relationship with another organisation that we have an agreement with (a Z Business Promoter) then we may collect information about you and people who hold a Z Business fuel card linked to your account (Cardholders) from that Z Business Promoter and share information with them about you and your Cardholders.
We collect personal information about you when:
• it is necessary to provide goods or services you have requested
• it is necessary as part of a loyalty programme (run by us or one of our loyalty partners) that you have joined
• you have expressly consented to us collecting that information, for example when you apply for an account with us, enter a competition or promotion run by us or interact with us on social media
• it is necessary to protect or enforce our legal rights or interests, or to defend any claims made against us by any person (including you) or
• it is required by law.
We also use CCTV cameras to record footage at our retail sites and truck stops. This footage may constitute ‘personal information’ as defined in the Privacy Act.
The information that we collect from you may be used by us for a number of purposes connected with our business such as:
• processing your orders or applications
• giving effect to any loyalty schemes that you participate in (whether run by us or one of our loyalty partners)
• carrying out credit checking and scoring
• providing you with products and/or services you have requested, or administering your account
• billing you (unless you pay by another agreed method) and collecting any debt owed to us by you
• dealing with your requests, enquiries or complaints and other customer care related activities
• verifying your identity and assisting you in case you forget your password or login details where these are necessary to access any of our products or services
• carrying out any activity in connection with a legal, governmental or regulatory requirement on us, or in connection with legal proceedings, crime, or fraud prevention, detection or prosecution
• to improve and refine our products and services
• to interact and communicate with you on social media
• to identify and inform you about products, services, promotion and offers most likely to be of interest to you, or any other communications that you have opted in to receive; and
• general administrative and business purposes
We will also use information in an anonymised aggregated form, to carry out analysis of our products, services and customer interactions (including how our website and the Z App are used).
Where we are using your information to communicate with you by email or text about products, services and promotions that we think may be of interest to you, you can choose to stop receiving such emails or texts by using the unsubscribe function in the message. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 474 355 to be removed from the database.
In addition, CCTV footage specifically may be used for the following purposes:
• detecting and deterring criminal behaviour on our sites
• detecting and deterring suspicious, inappropriate or unauthorised use of a Z Business fuel Card or other card and
• monitoring the safety and security of our staff, our customers and our sites, and completing incident investigations.
We respect the privacy of your personal information and we will take all reasonable steps to keep it confidential. However, there may be times when we need to disclose your personal information to third parties. If we do this, we will only disclose your information to:

Under no circumstances will we sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.
We may record and store personal information which we collect from you and where we do so we will take all reasonable steps:
However, we do not promise that your personal information cannot be accessed by an unauthorised person (for example, a hacker) or that unauthorised disclosures will not occur.
We may store and process your personal information using services provided by a third party provider (including providers outside New Zealand) and so your personal information may be held outside New Zealand.
If we provide you with any passwords or other security devices it is important that you keep these secret and confidential and do not allow them to be used by any other person. You should notify us immediately if the security of these devices is breached to prevent the unauthorised disclosure of your personal information.
CCTV footage will usually be retained for a period of 30 days, after which time it will usually be deleted.
At any time you may request us to provide you with a copy of any of your personal information we have stored and/or recorded by contacting us. We will provide you with the information as soon as possible but in any event within 14 days unless we have legal grounds to deny your request.
In some cases, there may be a charge associated with providing copies of your personal information to you. If so, we will advise you of this prior to sending your information to you.
If you are able to establish that any of your personal information which has been stored and/or recorded by us is not accurate, complete or up to date, then you should notify us and we will take all reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up to date.
