3 Use and disclosure of your Information Godavari uses and discloses your personal information and the information you supply in many ways necessary for us to do business together: product promotion, registration and product activation, provide transactional services and client support and for secure access to the Godavari website. The information you provide is stored in our database and used by us in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We do not provide customer lists or contact details to our advertisers or business partners and will not share this information in a manner that identifies you as an individual without your express permission. We may from time to time hire a third party to act on our behalf for projects such as market research. We will provide information to these third parties specifically for use in connection with these projects. The information we provide will be protected by a confidentiality agreement that will obligate the third party to use the information solely to complete the specific project. Other than as specified above, we release account and other personal information only when release is required by law or necessary to enforce or apply our terms and conditions or protect the rights of Godavari, our customers or other third parties.

4 Product Promotion Godavari may contact you to inform you about product updates, collections, promotions and events.

Some of the third parties described above including our service providers may be located in other countries. You acknowledge that while these parties will often be subject to other confidentiality or privacy obligations, they may not in all cases be subject to the specific requirements of New Zealand privacy laws. We reserve the right to disclose your personal information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law, facilitate court proceedings or to protect our rights.
