Privacy Policy


You can visit and enjoy the Website without disclosing any personal information. However, we offer some special services. For these services to work properly we will need you to share with us certain personal information.

Our Commitment to Privacy : 

Privacy is important to all of us. To better protect your privacy, RUG VILLAGE LTD provides this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

Changes to privacy policy : 

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the revised Privacy Policy in the “Privacy Policy” section of the Website. The revised Privacy Policy is effective immediately when posted on the Website. It is the responsibility of each User to review the Website and the Privacy Policy periodically to learn of any revisions to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Website after the effectiveness of such revisions will constitute your acknowledgment and acceptance of the terms of the revised Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect When You Register : 

Users registering for services on our Web site are asked to provide us with identifying information, such as first and last name, street address, e-mail address, telephone number (e.g. home, work, mobile and/or fax), contact information, and other personal information. On our registration screens, we clearly label which information is required for registration, and which information is optional and may be given at your discretion. The Website will explain how personally identifiable information will be used and ask for your consent before collecting it. We may also collect other personal information that will be identified on the applicable page(s) of the Website. If you submit any personal information to us, you can be assured that we will not sell, lease, or share your personal information with or to anyone. On occasion, we may offer a special promotion (such as a contest or a free subscription to goods and services) on the Website.

How We Use Your Email Address : 

When you sign up for our mailing lists, a www.rugvillage.co.nz account, or other service or promotion that requires registration, you will be required to provide a valid email address. We will only use this email address to contact you as part of the transaction process, to send you periodic emails that you have subscribed to, or for purposes that are intended to enhance your user experience. We may also occasionally contact you to obtain feedback on a specific deal you have participated in. We will not share your contact information with third parties at all.

How We Use Your Demographic Information : 

We will occasionally collect demographic data, such as zip code, gender, and occupation. Providing this information is typically optional but helps us bring you the best deals possible. We use this data to help determine which deals our users would most appreciate. We will never share this data with third parties, such as merchants featured on our site. No third party will be able to trace your personal demographic information back to at all.

Choice/Opt-Out : 

You may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails or you can contact us at RUG VILLAGE LTD

Use of Cookies : 

When you view our Website we might store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file. Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on our site. Cookies do not spy on you or otherwise invade your privacy, and they cannot invade your hard drive and steal information. Rather, they help you navigate a website as easily as possible. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to prevent you from reentering all your registration data at each connection.

Use of IP Addresses : 

We use your IP Address to help diagnose problems with our server, to protect the security of your account, to administer our Website, and to determine locations for forwarding users with no city preference or cookies to the closest city website.

Other information we collect : 

We collect and use additional information to carry out internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behaviors to better understand and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your IP address.

Security : 

We take numerous precautions to protect the security of personally identifiable information. You can access your personally identifiable information on our Website through a password and your email address. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. In addition, your personally identifiable information resides on a secure server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to. We encrypt certain sensitive information (such as credit card information) using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure that your personally identifiable information is safe as it is transmitted to us. While there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies, which do the same. We cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Website, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.

Credit Card Security : 

We work diligently to protect the security of your personal information, including credit card information. Your credit card details do not get processed or transmitted through or via the RUG VILLAGE website as all transactions are processed through a secure payment service provider. RUG VILLAGE uses PAYPAL to provide this secure service. PayPal hosts and manages the payment page. All transaction sessions are stored and processed in secure encrypted strings. Your credit card details are not held by RUG VILLAGE and cannot be accessed by RUG VILLAGE staff. However they may be held by PayPal (review their Privacy Policy). If you have any questions about our privacy policies or any other matter, please e-mail us at info@rugvillage.co.nz

Third Party Sites : 

You may visit other web sites, through links on our site, who may collect, use and share your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. The information practices of those websites linking from or to our site are not covered by this Policy, and we encourage you to be very cautious before you disclose your personal information to others.

Public Forums : 

This Website makes chat rooms, forums, and/or message boards available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
