Links to Other Sites
References and links to other organisations or their websites are intended for the convenience of users, and do not constitute an official endorsement of any websites, organisations, or individuals. We may offer links to sites that are not operated by St Peter’s. If you visit one of these linked sites, you should review their privacy and other policies. We are not responsible for the policies and practices of others.

Every effort is made to keep the website up and running smoothly. However, St Peter’s School takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.

Any personal data you transmit to the site by electronic mail or otherwise, will be used by St Peter’s School in accordance with our Privacy Policy below.

Making a Donation and/or Registering for Events
St Peter’s School collects and uses personal information from donors and/or alumni including: names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, event registration fees and donation dates/amounts.

We use this information to:

  • Provide and distribute receipts;
  • Send out donor acknowledgement letters and thank donors for their donations;
  • Keep supporters informed about upcoming fundraising initiatives and other activities of St Peter’s; and
  • Communicate to our supporters through direct mails, email and newsletters.

Use of Text and Images
St Peter’s School reserves all copyrights on material within its web pages. If you would like to publish information or imagery that you find on our website or wish to use the St Peter’s School logo please contact the Advancement Office foundation@stpeters.school.nz

Security and Payment Processing
We employ commercially reasonable security methods and technologies to help secure the Personal Information we collect and store. Donor information is stored within a donor management database. Access to the database is restricted to personnel with a legitimate business need to access or modify the information contained therein. However, no system can be guaranteed 100% secure. We therefore cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, or that we transmit to you, or guarantee that it will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.

St Peter’s School uses Blackbaud products for payment processing and data storage. Blackbaud has modified every one of its applications that processes, stores and transmits cardholder data based on PCI DSS and PA-DSS compliance standards. Blackbaud represents that it fully adheres to PCI standards regarding secure storage of data, strong access control and other requirements. For further information on this subject please visit Blackbaud’s PCI Compliance page. Since we use a vendor to process credit card payments made through the Site and to store associated payment data, St Peter’s does not directly collect such credit card information, nor does St Peter’s store or have access to credit card information submitted online. For donations made offline, St Peter’s may directly collect, store or have access to credit card information for processing payments, but this too is in compliance with PCI standards.

Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf
Companies may be engaged by St Peter’s School to perform a variety of functions, such as assisting with donation collection, providing technical services for our Internet sites, or creating mailing lists for the school magazine. Such companies may have access to Personal Information if needed to perform certain functions. However, these companies may use such Personal Information only for the purpose of performing that function and may not use it for any other purpose.

Administrative and Legal Reasons
St Peter’s reserves the right to use or disclose any information (including Personal Information) as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfil your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a public safety matter, to protect and defend the legal rights or property of St Peter’s, our Site or its users, or any other party, or in an emergency, to protect the health and safety of our users or the general public.
