Terms and Conditions

Below are our standard terms and conditions. Please read them carefully before purchasing products or using data on this website.

Warranty and Disclaimer
While every effort is made to publish correct data and errors are rare, OceanFun Publishing Ltd will not accept liability for damages or costs incurred as a result of using the published data. Although our data comes from the same source, we do not publish official tide figures - for authoritative tide information please consult the official tide tables in the New Zealand Nautical Almanac. Tide information is supplied to us by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), a crown entity.

Important note: Prior to 2007 our figures generally agreed with the official tide tables. However from 2007 onwards, LINZ has been constantly re-evaluating the tidal constitiuents and harmonics from which the tides are predicted, and supplying us with updated tide data.

These revisions may result in small changes in published figures - generally only a few minutes in the tide times, or a few centimetres of height. Differences of this magnitude are inconsequential to any practical use of our tide tables and graphics, but they may result in occasional numeric differences between our products, and also between our products and figures obtained from other sources. However, the magnitude of some revisions will be significant, and such revisions will always be incorporated in future products, as soon as they come to hand. In any case, you will always see the best figures that were available at the time of printing; later revisions by LINZ are outside our control.
