When and how does NextUp collect your personal information?
Personal information is information which identifies you. When you use NextUp, we may collect personal information such as your name, email address, and phone number. We may also collect other information such as visitor location and time (or intended shopping location and time) to achieve visitor benefit of waiting comfortably and planning where to visit.
We will primarily collect personal information directly from you. We will only collect your personal information from a third party where allowed by the Privacy Act 1993 or where you consent to us doing so.
Why do we collect and use personal information?
We collect personal information to provide our service to you on behalf of Businesses. For example, we need your mobile phone number to provide information to you via SMS (such as notifications that you can enter a retail store or other Business premises, booking confirmations, booking slot start time alerts and scannable codes). We may also provide data in relation to your location (or intended location) to government bodies to help trace the spread of infectious disease if that is required by law.
When you use NextUp we collect and store your personal information in one central location. NextUp keeps your information secure and will not use the personal information we hold about you for any marketing purposes. We may use anonymised meta-data relating to your use of NextUp for analysing or improving NextUp.
Who can we disclose your personal information to?
We will only disclose your personal information to the Businesses on whose behalf we collect that information. Where we collect personal information about your visit to a Business, we will not disclose that personal information to any other Business. Other than to Businesses, we will not disclose your personal information to any third parties unless we are required to do so by law.
What happens if you don’t provide us with your personal information?
If you don’t provide us with accurate or complete information, you may not be able to use some of the services available on NextUp.
Storage and security of your personal information
We may use third parties (located within or outside of New Zealand) to collect, store and process your personal information. We take all reasonable steps to ensure the personal information we collect is protected against loss, unauthorised access, use, modification or disclosure or any other misuse.
How you can request access and correction of your personal information
You have the right to access the information we hold about you on behalf of a Business. We will always notify the Business if you request any information or contact us in relation to the personal information we hold about you on the Business’s behalf. If we withhold information from you, we’ll give you reasons. You can ask us to put our reasons in writing. If you’re not happy with the reasons we give, you can make a complaint by contacting us at [email protected] or by emailing [email protected]. You also have the right to request we correct any mistakes or inaccuracies in the information we hold about you, and to attach to that information a statement that a correction was requested but not made.

This non-identifiable information is collected for the purposes of analysing or improving NextUp. We do not combine this information with personally identifiable information.
You are entitled to make a complaint to the Privacy Commissioner if you think that your privacy has been interfered with or wrongfully disclosed, including if you disagree with our reasons for withholding information from you.
