For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the system or to charge for its services, at any time and for any reason. We will never charge you for the system or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re paying for.

At some point, we may wish to update the system. The system is currently available on web browser.  The requirements for the system may change due to regulations, and updates to the system will be automated for the benefit of users.

The QCONZ Freshwater Farm Plan system stores and processes personal data that you have provided to us, in order to provide our Service. It’s the User’s responsibility to keep access to the system secure.

All information is securely stored on the QCONZ server. We take reasonable steps to protect your information from misuse, loss, interference, and from unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure.  Please refer to the Privacy Policy

We use PayPal to process credit card transactions and secure payment information. Credit card numbers are never transmitted to QCONZ systems and therefore cannot possibly be stored or revealed.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Whilst we strive to protect such information, we do not warrant and cannot ensure the security of any information that you transmit to us. Accordingly, any information that you transmit to us is transmitted at your own risk. Nevertheless, once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable steps to preserve the security of such information. You should never share your secure information and/or password and identifier with any other person.



You should be aware that there are certain things that we will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the system will require the system to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but we cannot take responsibility for the system not working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data allowance left.

If you’re using the system outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of the agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the app, or other third-party charges. In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e., region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the software/app, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the software/app.

Along the same lines, we cannot always take responsibility for the way you use the system i.e. You need to make sure that your device stays charged – if it runs out of battery and you can’t turn it on to avail the Service, we cannot accept responsibility.

With respect to our responsibility for your use of the system, when you’re using the system, it’s important to bear in mind that although we endeavour to ensure that it is updated and correct at all times, we do rely on third parties to provide information to us so that we can make it available to you. QCONZ accepts no liability for any loss, direct or indirect, you experience as a result of relying wholly on this functionality of the system.
