Privacy - Introduction

In this TOU when we use the term "Personal Information", it means any information from which your identity is apparent or can be reasonably ascertained.  For most users, Weta does not collect any Personal Information.  We collect Personal Information only in connection with the recruitment part of our site (“Recruitment Information”).  The use of that information is described below.  
In all cases, we collect Personal Information only by explicitly asking for it on a web form.  (The exception is for "session cookies", which are used to track a visitor only during a single visit to this site.)

Use and Disclosure of Information

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 for the safety or security of Weta or any third party; or
  • we are authorised, required or permitted by law to disclose the information.

Recruitment Information:

We collect visitors Recruitment Information, such as their professional experience, etc., in order to assist us in finding and evaluating people who are interested in working at Weta.  This information is collected only via web form on pages where we explicitly ask for information.
This information is used by Weta to consider expressions of interest, evaluate potential candidates, and more generally for personnel recruitment purposes.  This information is routinely circulated within Weta to people involved in our recruiting process, management, and to others who may be able to assist us in evaluating an applicant.

Disclosure of Recruitment Information

Is addition to the disclosure of any Personal Information under this TOU, Weta may disclose Recruitment Information  under some circumstances to other Weta-associated companies, such as Weta Workshop Limited, Weta Collectibles Limited, or Weta Productions Limited, etc.  Ordinarily, the reason for us to share the information is because we believe that the Recruitment Information suggests that the applicant might be better suited to working with one of the other Weta associated companies, and we usually (but not always) consult the applicant before doing sharing the information.

Use of Personal Information

We do not sell or trade Personal Information (except for the sharing of Recruitment information with associated companies, as described above).  We retain Personal Information for an indefinite period.

Security of Information

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Accordingly, although Weta strives to protect such information, Weta 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.

Privacy Contacts

You have rights of access to, and correction of, you personal information. If you have any questions about this privacy policy or requests relating to your Personal Information, please contact Weta at:
