Terms & Conditions
Section 3: Changing these terms. We may update or revise this policy periodically. If we do we will post those changes here, and they'll take effect as soon as they are posted. In the majority of cases changes will only be minor and relate to improvements in the website.

These changes will always be made in a good faith manner to improve your return on investment from BillboardMe.
Section 4: About New Zealand law. These terms are governed by and are to be interpreted in accordance with New Zealand law. In the event of any dispute arising in relation of these terms or their subject matter, the New Zealand courts will have exclusive jurisdiction over such dispute.
Section 5: Business listings on BillboardMe. BillboardMe facilitates the marketing of services and the promotion of New Zealand businesses. Here we describe how you can use BillboardMe, what your responsibilities to BL are, and any specific disclaimers to let you know what BL will not be responsible for.

Section 6b: Parties involved. On BillboardMe you can browse categories or search for specific businesses.

The business will be held entirely responsible for any damages resultant from inaccurate or misleading price and product descriptions.
Section 6d: Service descriptions. Businesses that list on BillboardMe agree to do their best to make sure the information they provide to us is accurate, reliable, adequate, complete and current. However, we are not responsible in any way for content supplied by third parties. Although we do our best to ensure the content is accurate, reliable, adequate, complete and current. With content we cannot and do not represent or warrant this will always be the case. For example, due to technical or human error, information may be recorded incorrectly or omitted on BillboardMe.
Section 6e: Price. All prices listed on BillboardMe are stated in New Zealand dollars (NZD) and include GST unless specifically stated otherwise. Any product prices listed on BillboardMe are provided by the businesses listing on BillboardMe.

We do not and cannot guarantee availability of our website and services or that there will be no interruptions or delays in relation to our website or services.

Section 11i: How do we collect information? When you choose to enter information while on BillboardMe we receive and hold that information. This includes forms you complete, emails you send or any other contact you make with us. For example: your membership profile, your feedback and any other communication with BillboardMe. BillboardMe automatically generates certain types of information when you use BillboardMe. We receive and hold that information. To do this we mostly use “Cookies” as they help us to keep track of where you go and what you like about BillboardMe. Cookies are little bits of information that websites send to your browser. Your computer can then store that on the system you use to access BillboardMe. You can disable cookies via your browser preferences (you'll need to do this yourself as we're not responsible for your browser). Importantly, if you disable cookies you won't be able to log-in to BillboardMe and get the most out of the membership ease of use available when you log in. You don't have to tell us anything. BillboardMe works best when we know a bit about you. Non members do not have access to all features on our website, we will always indicate when this is the case. You can opt out of receiving BillboardMe communications at any time by clicking on the link in your profile at any time or using the "unsubscribe" option. We'll then remove you from the distribution list as quickly as we can.
Section 11j: Why are we collecting your information? To make it easy for buyers to find what they like, and help suppliers find interested buyers. In order to do this, and make BillboardMe the best it can be, we may use your personal information for different purposes. As an example this may include:
- Processing your membership application.
- Finding out who visits BillboardMe to check if our advertising is working.
- Keeping everyone up to date, that means sending emails and other messages.
- Enforcing our legal rights.
Section 12: Rights of access. Under the Privacy Act 1993, you have the right to ask to see the information we hold about you. And if you notice that any of your details are incorrect just ask us to correct those for you.
Section 13: Severability. In the event that any one or more of the provisions contained herein shall, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provisions of this agreement, but this agreement shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions had never been contained herein, unless the deletion of such provision or provisions would result in such a material change so as to cause completion of the transactions contemplated herein to be unreasonable.
Section 14: Cancellation of service. Due to security concerns, all account cancellations must be actioned via phone request by the BillboardMe account holder. Upon cancellation of services, all charges will cease at the end of your current billed period. No partial credit or refund will be issued for early cancellation.
