Privacy Policy

At the Animals Justice Party Aotearoa NZ Inc. (AJP), we are committed to protecting the privacy of our members, supporters, and website visitors. This privacy policy explains how we collect, store, and protect your personal information when you use our website, services, or interact with us.

We collect personal information when you sign up as a member, donate, sign petitions, participate in surveys, or subscribe to our email newsletter. We may also collect information when you fill out a form on our website or use other features. The information we collect may include your name, contact details (email address and phone number), and other personal information. We use CiviCRM to manage our member and supporter data for email communications, event management, fundraising, membership, petitions, and supporter tracking. We use Stripe for processing donations and payments. We use your information for the following purposes:

  • To process your membership application or donation

  • To analyse website traffic and usage patterns
  • We do not sell or share your personal information with any third parties, except as required by law or to comply with a valid legal process or as required by the New Zealand Electoral Commission under the Electoral Act 1993.


We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. We have implemented physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to secure the information we collect, including

  • Use of secure servers to store your information,
  • Encryption of sensitive information transmitted online,
  • Regular monitoring and testing of our security systems to detect and prevent breaches,
  • Limited access to personal information to authorized personnel only on a need-to-know basis,
  • Regularly reviewing and updating our security protocols in line with industry standards,

CiviCRM is hosted on a Private Virtual Server managed by the IT Oversight and Security Committee. We have a strict policy for access to the server and the data stored on it. We are compliant with the Privacy Act 2020. You have the right to access and request correction of your personal information held by us. If you wish to exercise this right, please contact us at the email or address provided.

Third-Party Services

We may use third-party cloud-hosted software for campaigning and fundraising, such as CallHub. These services may collect and store personal information on their servers and are subject to their privacy policies. We take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers comply with industry data protection and security standards and that they have appropriate safeguards in place to protect personal information. We only use a minimal amount of information in these services, such as phone number, name, and email, which is essential for the service to function. However, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information when it is collected and stored by these services. Using our website and services, you consent to transfer your personal information to these third-party providers.

Data Breaches

In the event of a data breach, we will promptly notify affected individuals and take necessary steps to contain and mitigate the breach in accordance with legal requirements. We will also promptly notify the relevant regulatory authorities as required by law, including the Office of the Privacy Commissioner.
