This policy complies with applicable laws and regulations in South Africa, including the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA).

Information Collection

We collect various types of information to enhance your experience on our website. This includes, but is not limited to, personal information you provide when registering for our services, such as your name, email address, and location. Technical information such as IP addresses, browser types, and usage details are also collected automatically. Our primary goal in collecting personal and technical information is to provide and improve our services, administer your use of the website, and enable your access to and use of the website features.

Use of Information

The information we collect is used to better understand your needs and provide you with the relevant services. We may use your information to communicate with you, to update you about changes to our services, and to send you promotional materials that may be of interest to you. Information may also be used for research and analysis purposes to improve the functionality and user-friendliness of our site. We commit to handling your personal information with care and will not use it for purposes other than those outlined in this Privacy Policy without obtaining your explicit consent.

Disclosure of Information

Your personal information may be disclosed to third-party service providers involved in the operation of our website.
