2. Watts’ Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
3. Cross-border Transfer of Personal Information
We are based in the United States and our related entities, affiliates and service providers are located around the world. We may transfer your Personal Information to recipients located outside New Zealand so that you can use our Related Products or Services (including through Connected Devices and Connected Offerings). This may include Watts, or third parties that we work with (including contractors and third party service providers). We will only do this in accordance with the Privacy Act.
4. Right to Access, Correct and Delete
Under the Privacy Act, you have the right to obtain confirmation that we hold Personal Information about you, and to access and request correction of any such Personal Information. We rely on you to update us if your contact details change (please refer to the Contact Information section below).
To protect the integrity and security of the information we hold, we may ask that you follow a defined access procedure, which may include steps to verify your identity. In certain cases we may charge you an administration fee in accordance with the Privacy Act for providing you with access to the information you have asked for, but we will inform you of this before proceeding. There may be cases where we are unable to provide the information you request, such as where it would interfere with the privacy of others or result in a breach of confidentiality. In these cases we will let you know why we cannot comply with your request.
We only store Personal Information for as long as it is needed for the purpose for which it was collected or as required by law.
6. Account Registration and Use
To access certain of our Services, you may be asked to create an Account and to provide certain registration details or other information, including your name, email address, phone number and address and/or other Personal Information specified in the registration process.

• to the maximum extent permissible by law, the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 does not apply to the supply of the Products and Services or the Agreement; and
• it is fair and reasonable that the parties are bound by this clause 8.
9. Annual subscriptions
If we notify you of any such change and you notify us that you do not agree with the relevant change, the change will not apply to you until the expiry of your then current annual subscription (or, at Watts’ election, we may notify you that you must stop using the Services and we will refund you the balance of any subscription payments you have made in advance).
10. Accessing services
This section applies to the extent that any part of our Services are unavailable or suspended at any time and the unavailability or suspension of such Services is directly caused by us, as determined by us acting reasonably (Affected Services). If you have paid for an Affected Service, we will reduce the fees you had paid to reasonably reflect the extent and period of the unavailability or suspension of the Affected Service.
11. Account registration
Your liability to indemnify us (or the other indemnified parties referred to in clause 23), in accordance with clause 23, will be reduced to the extent that the indemnified party caused or contributed to the relevant Loss.
