Privacy & Security

We recognise that your privacy is very important to you and to most people who use the Internet. Our Privacy Policy is detailed below and we suggest that you read it thoroughly. This policy may change from time to time and all changes will be posted on this Web Site so please check back periodically. We collect personal information only if you are or become an Independent Business Owner (IBO) or VIP Client and we use that information mainly to help us understand your needs so that we may better service them.

By using the Amway Web Site, you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as detailed in this Privacy Policy. The types of personal information that we may collect from you and how we use it will depend on how you use this Web Site and upon your status as an IBO or VIP Client.

WEB SECURITY

We understand that when shopping on the Internet security is of paramount importance to you. We guarantee that all reasonable precautions to protect your amway.co.nz transactions have been taken so that you can have as safe and secure a shopping experience as can be reasonably provided.

When you place orders on amway.co.nz, your transactions are encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology, the industry standard in e-commerce transaction security. Encryption scrambles the information transmitted across the Internet, including your credit card number, name and address. SSL also verifies the identity of the server and confirms that the original message arrives safely at its destination.

You can also be assured that your details are not stored on computers directly connected to the Internet and that personal information such as Credit Card numbers which you may choose to store, are stored in our back-end system and not anywhere on the Amway web site. Details, such as your password, which must be stored within the amway.com.au system are encrypted using standard industry methods.

When you enter the secure areas of the Amway web site you will see a padlock symbol in the right hand corner of your screen. This indicates that the screen is in secure mode and any details you provide on this screen will be encrypted for your security.
