Dynamics Africa Services (Pty) Ltd (“DAS”) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the https://www.dynamicsafrica.biz website (“DAS Website”) and governs data collection and usage. By using the Website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
1. Collection of your Personal Information
1.1 DAS collects personally identifiable information, including without limitation, e-mail address, first name, last name, telephone number, company, country, or current operating system (if applicable)). DAS also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.
1.2 There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by DAS. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by DAS for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the DAS Website.
1.3 Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through DAS public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: DAS does not read any of your private online communications.
1.4 DAS encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from DAS so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. DAS is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the DAS and DAS family of Websites.
2.1 DAS collects and uses your personal information to operate the DAS Website and deliver the services you have requested. DAS also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from DAS, trusted partners and/or its affiliates. DAS and/or its trusted partners, as the case may be, may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
2.2 DAS does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. DAS and/or its trusted partners, as the case may be, may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail address, first name, last name, telephone number, company, country, or current operating system (if applicable)) is not transferred to the third party (except with DAS trusted partners). In addition, DAS may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you e-mail or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to DAS, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
2.3 DAS does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
2.4 DAS keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within DAS, in order to determine what DAS services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within DAS to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
2.5 DAS Website(s) will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on DAS or the Website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of DAS; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of DAS, or the public.
3.1 The DAS Website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
3.2 One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize DAS pages, or register with DAS Website or services, a cookie helps DAS to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same DAS Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the DAS features that you customised.
3.3 You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the DAS services or DAS Website(s) you visit.
4. SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
4.1 DAS secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. DAS secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) protocol.
5. CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT
5.1 DAS will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. DAS encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how DAS is protecting your information.
