Privacy Policy

Personal Information

In this Privacy Statement, when we use the term "Personal Information", it means any information from which your identity is apparent or can be reasonably ascertained. It also includes the information you provide about your background, experience, and similar information relevant to potentially working with Weta Workshop Limited or any of its affiliated companies ("Weta").

Generally, we collect two types of information: contact information and profile information, the use of which is described below. In all cases, we collect information only by explicitly asking for it on a web form. (The only exception is for "session cookies", which are used to track a visitor only during a single visit to this site.)

Our practice is that if we wish to collect Personal Information about you (such as name, contact information or other registration information) via the Internet, Weta Workshop Ltd will:

Expressly ask you for that Personal Information.  When we ask you for that Personal Information, tell you how we intend to use that Personal Information if you choose to give it to us. For instance, we may wish to use that Personal Information to personalise and tailor our information, services or products for you; to identify who we are communicating with; or, to inform you of further information relating to our services or products, or to this Web Site; and not share your Personal Information with persons or entities unless in accordance with these Terms of Web Site use.

Contact Information

We collect Web Site visitors' contact information (like their e-mail address). This contact information may be used to send users news, information about Weta Workshop Ltd and recruitment information. If you do not wish to have your Personal Information used for a particular purpose or you do not wish to receive mailings, you can e-mail us to notify us of your wishes. The contact information is on our "Contact Us" page.

Profile Information

We collect Web Site visitors profile information, such as their professional experience, salary requirements, etc., in order to assist us in finding and evaluating people who are interested in working at Weta Workshop. This information is used by Weta to consider expressions of interest, evaluate potential candidates, and more generally for personnel recruitment purposes. In some cases, this information is shared with other Weta-associated companies, such as Weta Digital Limited, Weta Collectibles Limited, Weta Productions Limited, etc.

PeopleNet

Weta Workshop uses an outside company, PeopleNet (NZ) Ltd. ("PeopleNet"), to create and maintain our recruitment website. PeopleNet has access to the data stored by it for Weta, including any personal information you have supplied, but is obligated to Weta to keep that data confidential.

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except for the purposes described above, we will only use or disclose Personal Information that you have provided to us or information generated by cookies if:

You have authorised us to do so.  We have given you notification of the intended use or disclosure and you have not objected to that use or disclosure; we believe that the use or disclosure is reasonably necessary to assist a law enforcement agency or an agency responsible for national security in the performance of their functions; or we are authorised, required or permitted by law to disclose the information.

How we handle emails

We will preserve the content of any email you send us if we believe we have a legal requirement to do so. Your email message content may be monitored by an Internet Service Provider of Weta Workshop, contractors for troubleshooting and maintenance purposes or where email abuse is suspected.

Security of Information

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Accordingly, although Weta Workshop Ltd strives to protect such information, Weta Workshop Ltd cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable steps (but cannot guarantee) to preserve the security of this information in our own systems and PeopleNet has made a similar commitment. If you have a login name and/or password for use in conjunction with this web site, you are entirely responsible for the maintenance of the confidentiality of that login name and/or password. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your login name. You agree to immediately notify Weta Workshop Ltd of any unauthorised use of your login name and/or password or any other breach of security known to you.
