Gen Less emails

If you tell us that you want us to contact you about living a Gen Less lifestyle, we (the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority) will collect your name and your email address. We will securely store that information on a cloud based programme (Campaign Monitor) and will only use that information to get in touch with you about Gen Less, and to send you information about living a Gen Less lifestyle.

If you no longer want to receive such information, please click the unsubscribe button at the bottom of an email from us. If you would like us to delete your details from our database, please write to us at genless@eeca.govt.nz.

Unless you authorise us to do so, we will not disclose your personal information to any third party.

Business and symbol packs

If you request to order a business or symbol pack, we will ask you to give us your name and email address, so we can send you the resources you have requested. We will not use that information for any other purpose, and will delete your details after providing you the requested information, unless you tell us that you would also like us to contact you about living a Gen Less lifestyle.
