This page explains how the Auckland Health Foundation uses information you give to us through this website and how we protect your privacy.


Protecting the privacy and personal data of visitors to our website is of the utmost importance to us.  This site has security measures in place to protect the loss and alteration of information under our control.

Security of online donations and transactions

Donations made online on the Auckland Health Foundation’s website are processed in real time using a secure payment gateway.  All donations are processed in New Zealand Dollars. If you have any questions or concerns about making an online donation to the Auckland Health Foundation please contact us.

We will always ensure that your privacy is protected when using our website or when personal data is provided to us by you or another party.

Our website has layers of security to protect it against malicious activity, possible breaches of the system (‘cracking’) and unauthorised access to customer data.

Your data is not permanently stored on our website.

When you send us an email, it is not encrypted and is therefore not secure.

Credit and debit card security

We work diligently to protect the security of your personal cardholder information, including credit and debit card information.

When you submit personal information including credit card details, a secure server is used. Our electronic database is secured by a firewall to ensure, so far as practicable, that it is not accessed by unauthorised parties. This website has security measures designed to protect against the loss, misuse and/or alteration to your personal information under our control. Secure pages on our website are protected by an SSL certificate. A security icon visible on your screen, for example a padlock, confirms that your browser supports SSL security. Click on the security icon to verify the security certificate on this website.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your information and to your computer. Ensure you logout when you have finished, especially if using a shared computer.

If you send us personal cardholder data by email or by postal mail or provide us with this information over the phone, we have strict processes in place to ensure that we meet the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council and only store cardholder data in a secure encrypted environment.
