Privacy Policy

Scope

Africave understands that your privacy is important to you. We are committed to protecting the privacy of your personally identifiable information as you use this website. This Privacy Policy sets out how Africave collects, retains, and uses information, including personal data (“Personal Data”), about Our Engineers, Clients, other Site visitors and individuals, including our vendors, partners, blog readers, and job applicants.

PERSONAL AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Our Privacy Policy identifies how we treat your personal and non-personal information.

What Is Non-personal Information and How Is It Collected and Used?

Non personal information is information that cannot identify you. If you visit this web site to read information, such as information about one of our services, we may collect certain non-personal information about you from your computer’s web browser. Because non-personal information cannot identify you or be tied to you in any way, there are no restrictions on the ways that we can use or share non-personal information.

What is personal information and how is it collected?

Personal information is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number and fax number. We may collect personal information from you in a variety of ways: 1. When you send us an application or other forms. 2. When we collect information about you in support of a transaction, such as payment confirmation information. 3. In some places on this web site, you have the opportunity to send us personal information about yourself, to elect to receive particular information, to purchase access to one of our products or services, or to participate in an activity.

Are Cookies or Other Technologies Used to Collect Personal Information?

Yes, we may use cookies and related technologies, such as web beacons, to collect information on our website. 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. 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 register with us, a cookie helps Africave to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as mailing addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Africave website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized. A web beacon is a small graphic image that allows the party that set the web beacon to monitor and collect certain information about the viewer of the web page, web-based document or email message, such as the type of browser requesting the web beacon, the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to and the time the web beacon was viewed. Web beacons can be very small and invisible to the user, but, in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or email, including HTML based content, can act as a web beacon. We may use web beacons to count visitors to the web pages on the website or to monitor how our users navigate the web site, and we may include web beacons in email messages in order to count how many messages sent were actually opened, acted upon or forwarded.

Third party vendors also may use cookies on our website. For instance, we may contract with third parties who will use cookies on our web site to track and analyze anonymous usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and members. Such information is shared externally only on an anonymous, aggregated basis. These third parties use persistent cookies to help us to improve the visitor experience, to manage our site content, and to track visitor behavior.

To help measure and improve the effectiveness of our email communications, the third party sets cookies. All data collected by this third party on behalf of Africave is used solely by or on behalf of Africave and is shared externally only on an anonymous, aggregated basis. From time to time, we may allow third parties to post advertisements on our website, and those third-party advertisements may include a cookie or web beacon served by the third party. This Privacy Policy does not cover the use of information collected from you by third party ad servers. We do not control cookies in such third party ads, and you should check the privacy policies of those advertisers and/or ad services to learn about their use of cookies and other technology before linking to an ad. We will not share your personal information with these companies, but these companies may use information about your visits to our website and other websites in order to provide advertisements on our website and other websites about goods and services that may be of interest to you, and they may share your personal information that you provide to them with others.

How Does Africave Use Personal Information?

Africave may keep and use personal information we collect from or about you to provide you with access to this website or other products or services, to respond to your requests, to bill you for products/services you purchased, to provide ongoing service and support, to contact you with information that might be of interest to you, including information about products and services of ours and of others, or ask for your opinion about our products or the products of others, for record keeping and analytical purposes and to research, develop and improve programs, products, services and content. Personal information collected online may be combined with the information you provide to us through other sources. We may also remove your personal identifiers (your name, email address, etc). In this case, you would no longer be identified as a single unique individual. Once we have de-identified information, it is non-personal information and we may treat it like other non- personal information. Finally, we may use your personal information to protect our rights or property, or to protect someone’s health, safety or welfare, and to comply with a law or regulation, court order or other legal process.

Does Africave Share Personal Information with Others?

We will not share your personal information collected from this website with an unrelated third party without your permission, except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy. In the ordinary course of business, we may share some personal information with companies that we hire to perform services or functions on our behalf. In all cases in which we share your personal information with a third party for the purpose of providing a service to us, we will not authorize them to keep, disclose or use your information with others except for the purpose of providing the services we asked them to provide.

We will not sell, exchange or publish your personal information, except in conjunction with a corporate sale, merger, dissolution, or acquisition. For some sorts of transactions, in addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors (such as banks) who may provide such services as credit, insurance, and escrow services may collect personal information directly from you to assist you with your transaction. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use your personal information before they collect it. If you submit a review for a third party (person or business) using our Facebook Fan Review Application, during the submission process we ask your permission to gather your basic information (such as name and email address) which we then share with the third party for whom you are submitting the review. We may be legally compelled to release your personal information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law or regulation.

We may cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating and prosecuting website visitors who violate our rules or engage in behavior, which is harmful to other visitors (or illegal). We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we feel that the disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property, protect someone’s health, safety or welfare, or to comply with a law or regulation, court order or other legal process. As discussed in the section on cookies and other technologies, from time to time we may allow a third party to serve advertisements on this web site.

If you share information with the advertiser, including by clicking on their ads, this Privacy Policy does not control the advertisers use of your personal information, and you should check the privacy policies of those advertisers and/or ad services to learn about their use of cookies and other technology before linking to an ad.

How Is Personal Information Used for Communications?

In addition, some of the features on this website allow you to communicate with us using an online form. If your communication requests a response from us, we may send you a response via email.
