How Do We Collect Personal Information?
Life Health Foods may collect personal information from you, including but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, mobile number and email address, when you knowingly provide us with this information.

How Do We Use Personal Information?
Life Health Foods may use the personal information that you submit to us to provide and improve our services.
Life Health Foods may disclose this information to our suppliers, contractors, agents for the purpose of providing you with the goods and services that you have ordered and/or requested. Additionally Life Health Foods may from time to time send you offers or information on goods or services that Life Health Foods considers will be of interest to you.
If your personal information is collected in connection with a joint promoter, we may disclose your personal information to that joint promoter for marketing and research purposes.
Life Health Foods may allow your personal information to be given to third parties for similar purposes unless you have clearly indicated that this is not to occur.
Some of the third parties with whom we share personal information may be located outside New Zealand, including the United States of America and Australia.
