Maori Trusts’ Grants and Scholarships Privacy Notice

Deloitte Rotorua Office (we) take privacy seriously. When we collect, handle, store and protect your personal and sensitive information, we must do it lawfully in accordance with the Privacy Act 2020. When we collect personal information, the law requires us to tell you about the following matters:

We are collecting your personal and sensitive information for purpose of, assessing your eligibility and processing your application for the grant(s) or scholarship(s) you have applied for provided by the relevant Maori Trusts (see links below).

Evidence of Whakapapa is considered your (the applicant’s) sensitive information, however, it may also be the sensitive information of the person(s) signing (verifying/endorsing) the Whakapapa. We will also collect, use and store their personal and sensitive information when you submit your completed application.

When completing a grant application, you and those persons helping you are authorising the collection, use and sharing of any personal information collected for the purposes as set out below and in the privacy notices provided. This includes your personal and sensitive information and that of the person(s) helping you, for example, i.e. a parent or guardian, an academic referee, persons providing confirmation of enrolment, or those signing your Whakapapa.

Your personal and sensitive information will be shared with the relevant Trust(s) to which you have applied for a grant or scholarship. We may also use personal and sensitive information collected for one grant or scholarship, including evidence of Whakapapa, with the relevant Trusts for any other or future grants or scholarships you may apply to, or are eligible to receive. At times, limited personal information may be shared/discussed with your Educational Provider or Institution to confirm your enrolment.

The Trusts are also working with the Maori Education Trust (MET) to provide additional grant funding. If your application to the Trust(s) is successful, we will also provide relevant personal information to the MET to enable their additional funding to be provided.

We are also required by law to advise the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) of any taxable grant/scholarship paid to you. We will collect and share your IRD number and personal information with them. More information about how the IRD will handle your personal information can be found in their Privacy Policy here.

Deloitte Rotorua uses a contracted service provider, Survey Monkey (Momentive Inc.), an online platform to collect and process online Tertiary applications. More information about how Survey Monkey handles personal information can be found in their Privacy Notice here.

Providing your personal and sensitive information, or that of any person supporting your application for a grant or scholarship, is totally voluntary. However, if you do not provide all personal information requested, including verified/endorsed evidence of Whakapapa, your application will not be processed and may be declined.

More information about how we handle personal information can be found in our Privacy Policy. It also provides information about how you can access your personal information, have it corrected, or ask a privacy related question.
