Ngā Kete Privacy Statement

Ngā Kete User Terms and Privacy Statement


Institute of Environmental Science and Research Limited (“ESR”, “we”, “us”, “our”) develops data and analytics across a range of science disciplines, including water and environment, forensics and public health (“Datasets”). Datasets are supplied to a range of partners across both public and private sectors to support informed decision making.

Ngā Kete is ESR’s data analytics platform that enables you, as a user approved by your organisation, to securely access a Dataset that have been developed by ESR for your organisation. In these User Terms, the term Ngā Kete includes the data analytics platform and any other information contained therein. These User Terms form a legal agreement between you and ESR. By clicking “accept” or installing, downloading, accessing or otherwise using Ngā Kete or any Datasets contained therein, you are confirming that you agree to be bound by these User Terms.


Ngā Kete utilises Microsoft Azure AD, a prevalent identity platform, which provides organisations with the ability to federate logins via the Microsoft identity platform using open standards. The platform provides a standard pattern for authenticating users through single sign-on and identifying the applications relevant to a user’s role based on group memberships. If your organisation does not have Microsoft Azure AD, your access will be supported through a user directory managed by ESR.


ESR hereby grants you a personal, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable licence to use Ngā Kete in accordance with these User Terms.

You are permitted to extract, download, and make copies of any Dataset ESR has provided for your organisation in accordance with these User Terms and any agreement between ESR and your organisation relating to that Dataset.

This information will only be accessed by authorised ESR personnel and will not be shared with anyone else without your consent. ESR will only keep this information for as long as you require access to Ngā Kete. Your information will be deleted after your access to Ngā Kete has been removed. You have the right to access, correct or delete any information we hold about you at any time – please contact to do this.
