Privacy Policy

MG Fiji understands that privacy & proper handling of personal information is important to you and our private policies are based on respect for international standards of information privacy protection. This also applies to MG Fiji’s handling of personal information across all its offices (in Fiji) online and offline.

1. What Personal Information Does MG Collect?

The types of personal information that we collect will depend on the nature of your dealings with us. For example, we may collect personal information directly from you when you:

  • subscribe to a newsletter;
  • Have business dealings with us (whether as an employee of one of our external service providers, or if you work for a Government agency we deal with, or in the context of a transaction, or if you volunteer personal information to us).

In each case, we only collect the personal information that we need to carry out our specific functions.

2. How do we use Personal Information?

We need to collect personal information so that we can provide you with the publications or services you have requested, or so that we can carry out specific statutory functions (or both). The particular purpose for which we collect personal information will either be explained when we collect that information, or will be obvious from the context in which it is collected. Under the IPP’s, we must only use personal information for the particular purpose we collected it for, or for other purposes that are directly related to that purpose. If we want to use personal information for any other purpose we must obtain your consent. If we use your personal information to send you information by email (including e-newsletters), we will always give you an opportunity to “unsubscribe”, and we will respect your wishes.

3. Will Your Personal Information be Given to Anyone Else?

MG Fiji makes only limited disclosures of personal information. Examples of these disclosures are explained below. We may disclose personal information to external service providers who help us operate our business (eg Website/IT consultants, publishing houses). If MG Fiji engages external service providers, we require those contractors to comply with contractual privacy obligations that reflect MG Fiji’s own strict privacy obligations under the IPP’s.

4. Security of Personal Information

MG Fiji takes security of personal information seriously. Most electronic records of personal information collected by MG Fiji are stored in databases are hosted on servers in Fiji. In each case, our IT systems are protected by appropriate IT security measures. If you do not live in Fiji, and we want to store your personal information on servers that are located in Fiji, we will generally ask you to consent to this at the time we collect personal information from you. If you don’t want your personal information to be transferred to Fiji, please don’t provide us with your personal information. If you have dealt with MG Fiji in the past, and don’t want your personal information stored in Fiji, you can ask to be removed from our databases at any time (using the contact details at section 7 below). We also require our staff to ensure that paper records containing personal information are stored securely. MG Fiji’s personnel are bound by confidentiality obligations as a condition of their employment, and this extends to ensuring that personal information collected by MG Fiji is kept confidential.

5. Access and Correction

Under the Privacy Act, you have the right to seek access to the records of personal information that MG Fiji holds about you. You also have the right to ask us to alter your personal information to ensure it is accurate and up to date. If you wish to access the personal information that we hold about you, please set out your request in writing, and forward this to our Administration Department, using the contact details set out at the end of this Privacy Policy.

6. Online Privacy Issues

If you use MG Fiji’s websites, you are understood to consent to the terms and conditions set out on our websites. This includes consenting to the terms of this privacy policy. In general, you can visit MG Fiji’s websites without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. However there are times when we may need to collect personal information from you. For instance, if you register to receive our publications or to book a test drive, we will need to collect some personal information from you. At the time of collection, we will seek your permission to send you further electronic communications, and for your personal information to be stored in databases that are hosted in United States of America. If at any time after submitting your personal information to us you would no longer like to receive information from us, simply follow the “unsubscribe” directions at the end of any email communications you receive, or contact us using the contact details at section 7 of this External Privacy Policy. No attempt will be made by MG Fiji to identify website users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect server logs. The statistics and log files may be preserved indefinitely and used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the information supplied by MG Fiji.

In general on MG Fiji’s websites, IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) are logged to track a user’s session while the user remains anonymous. We analyse this data for certain trends and statistics, such as which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. We do not link your IP addresses to anything that identifies you. In those limited cases where session information is not anonymous, MG Fiji will provide notice of the practice and an opportunity to “opt out”.

When we receive information about your session or about you, we may also use it for research or to improve our site and the services we offer you.
