During our interactions, you share personal information with Vertice Data & Software, registration number 2008/024971/07.
This notice tells you what to expect when we collect and use your information. It is part of our agreement with you, and we may need to update it occasionally, but we will inform you when we do. You should read this notice along with the terms and conditions that apply to the products and services you use.
If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have to be older than 18 to use our services or products. When you order our products we will ask you to confirm that you are older than 18.
We do not knowingly collect the personal information of children without the consent of a parent or guardian.
If we target a child with a product or service, we will ask for consent from the child’s parent or guardian.
We use suppliers and service providers who we trust to assist us in providing our products to you. They have agreed to keep your information secure and confidential, and to only use it for the purposes for which we have sent it to them.
Here are some of the instances when we share your information:
|a)||to store information;|
|b)||to manage our social media interactions;|
|c)||to deliver our newsletter;|
|d)||to help monitor the effectiveness of our promotions and advertising;|
|e)||to help us manage our business, for instance accountants and professional advisors;|
|f)||to provide IT services;|
|g)||to maintain our website.|
Sometimes we will be required by law to share your information. For instance, we may be required to share your information with the South African Fraud Prevention Services.
Some of the service providers that we use may be located in other countries; for instance, our cloud storage service. These countries may not have the same levels of protection of personal information as South Africa. If this is the case, we require that they undertake to protect the personal information of our customers to the same level that we do.
We will not retain your information for longer than we need to, unless we are legally required to do so.
We have implemented reasonable security measures based on the sensitivity of the information we hold. These measures are in place to protect the information from being disclosed, from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, and from being altered or destroyed.
We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, but no system is perfect and we cannot guarantee that we will never experience breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If something should happen, we have taken steps to minimise the threat to your privacy. We will let you know of any breaches that affect your personal information and inform you how you can help minimise the impact.
You also have a role to play in keeping your information secure. For example, you should never share personal information with us in an email, because while our servers are protected, it is still possible that email can be intercepted. Instead, contact us at 012 111 7000.
You have the right to know what kind of personal information we have about you, to correct it, and to opt out of marketing.
You have the right to:
|a)||ask us what we know about you;|
|b)||ask what information was sent to our suppliers, service providers, or any other third party;|
|c)||ask us to update, correct, or delete any out-of-date or incorrect personal information we have about you;|
|d)||unsubscribe from any direct marketing communications we may send you; and|
|e)||object to the processing of your personal information.|
You can request access to the information we have about you, or correct your personal information by contacting our deputy information officer at email@example.com
It can take us up to 21 days to respond to your request because there are procedures that we need to follow. In certain cases, we may require proof of your identity, and sometimes changes to your information may be subject to additional requirements such as valid proof of residence.
