6.1 A cookie is a small data file that a website transfers to online users' hard drives to remember service settings. Cookies do not personally identify you when you use iCook.co.nz. Cookies allow us to gather the following information: the date and time of your visit, the duration of your visit, the pages you visit, the domain name from which you access the internet and the referring address you linked from. We use this information to measure the number of visitors to the different pages of our site and to help us make our site more useful to you.
6.2 Can I get rid of cookies?
Yes. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, and to decline or accept it. However, cookies do help to keep websites working more efficiently.
7. How we protect your information
The internet is not a secure medium. However we have put in place various security procedures as set out in this policy.
7.1 This website does not collect any personally identifiable information unless you provide it to us. When you’re checking out our website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, collected without you actively giving us the information) using various technologies, such as cookies.
7.2 If you sign up to our website and submit personally identifiable information to us, we make our best efforts to keep this information protected. Unfortunately, no transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of any information you send to us. However, once we receive your transmission, we do everything in our power to ensure its security on our systems. Please remember that whenever you voluntarily give out personal information online, for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas, that you are giving strangers access to your details which can be misused. iCook strongly recommends that you never post personal information in any public area of the Internet. If you are under 13 years old and you decide to post or send personal information to us or to other areas on the Internet, we suggest you check with your parents that it's okay.
7.3 We also keep your information confidential. The internal procedures of iCook cover the storage, access and disclosure of your information.
8. Sale of business
If this business is sold or integrated with another business your details may be disclosed to our advisers and any prospective purchasers and their advisers and will be passed on to the new owners of the business.
9. Updating your details
If any of the information that you have provided to iCook changes, for example if you change your e-mail address or contact name or if you wish to cancel your registration, please let us know the correct details by sending an e-mail to or by sending a letter to Administration, 171 Main Highway, Ellerslie, Auckland 1051, New Zealand.
10. Your consent
10.2 Owing to the global nature of the Internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside New Zealand that do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy. However, we have taken the steps outlined above to try to improve the security of your information. By submitting your information you consent to these transfers.
