Privacy Policy


This privacy policy tells you about the way Flatmin (we, our or us), collects information, holds it, uses it, and if we disclose it, who we disclose it to.

Collection of Your Personal Information


Flatmin may collect and hold information relating to you that you have provided to us, that we may have obtained from another source or from when you have used our website. This information may include (amongst other information) your name, address, telephone numbers, lifestyle information and any other information collected in relation to your use of our products and services.

We collect other information to help us understand how our site is working and how we could improve it and/or our services. This may include URL of pages you visit or have visited, which operating system and browser you are using, your IP address, and the date and time of your visit. While we may publish aggregated information of this sort, we will not publish information about individual machines, and we only disclose and use it as set out in this privacy policy. If you post messages to our website or Blog, we collect and may keep the information in those messages.

Use of Your Personal Information


Flatmin may hold and use your information for a number of purposes connected with our business, which include:

  • processing your orders or applications and providing you with any requested product or service;
  • contacting you about your contact details;
  • providing you with a bill or a payment reminder;
  • keeping you informed about our products or services;
  • using your information for a purpose agreed with you;
  • dealing with your enquiries or complaints;
  • contacting you with regard to any maintenance, support or general customer care issue;
  • aggregating the data in an unidentifiable way and using such aggregated data as we see fit. (As an example, an aggregate is things like 'the average spend on power in Wellington flats'.)

Sharing Your Personal Information


Flatmin will not share your personal information, except:

  • when you are using Flatmin in conjunction with others (i.e. your flatmates in your flat on Flatmin);
  • when you tell us we can do this;
  • when we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law;
  • when this is necessary to assist an adjudicator to resolve a complaint you make about us.
