You have a right under the New Zealand Privacy Act 2020 to access your personal information. If you wish to do this, you should make direct contact with the organisaton that is using this platform and request access to your personal information. You also have a right to ask that organisation to correct your personal information.

Use of student or member facial photosWe provide some services that use photos of faces of students or members for identification purposes. For example, we provide a service called www.PhotoCard.co.nz that allows schools, sports clubs and associations to use photos of their students or members within a digital identification card that can be displayed on a mobile phone instead of on old fashioned plastic ID cards. Similarly, we provide a service that lets schools and clubs generate PDF Photo Squad Sheets for team validation and to help moderate sideline behaviour. Our Game Day App solution also can display facial photos to team managers and coaches to help them identify and select whom within a team is playing a particular game.
Facial photos are normally uploaded by a player or parent at the time of registration with their club or school. Schools that use KAMAR can optionally elect to connect KAMAR to Sportsground in a way that makes it easy to use photos stored in KAMAR for these purposes without needing to manually upload each photo individually to the Sportsground platform. The submission of any facial photos is entirely at the discretion of each school, sports club or association that uses our services.
Sportsground will never use a photo for any purpose other than the purpose for which it was provided. We also design our services to require logins or scorer codes that help limit access to facial photos only to those people that each school, club or association grants access to, such as a Teacher in Charge of sport or the managers or coaches of a sports game that a person is participating in, or the governing body of the sport that is managing the competition that a person is participating in.
