What we do with your personally identifiable information

It is always up to you whether to disclose personally identifiable information to us, although if you elect not to do so, we reserve the right not to register you as a user or provide you with any products or services. “Personally identifiable information” means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as, for example:

  • your name, email address, phone number;

  • your computer’s domain name and IP address, indicating where your computer is located on the Internet;

If you do provide personally identifiable information to us, either directly or through another partner, we will:

  • not sell or rent it to a third party without your permission — although unless you opt out (see below), we may use your contact information to provide you with information
  • believe you need to know or may find useful, such as (for example) news about our information and modifications;
  • take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction;
  • not use or disclose the information except:
  • as necessary to provide our information or services;
  • in other ways described in this privacy policy or to which you have otherwise consented;
  • in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined (for example, statistical compilations);
  • as required by law, for example, in response to a subpoena or search warrant;
  • to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;
  • as necessary to enforce the Terms and Conditions;
  • as necessary to protect the rights, safety, or property of the administrators of Rooiels Fynbos and the Rooiels Fynbos website, its users, or others; this may include (for example) exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.

Rooiels Fynbos website may use “cookies” to store personal data on your computer. We may also link information stored on your computer in cookies with personal data about specific individuals stored on our servers. If you set up your web browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox) so that cookies are not allowed, you might not be able to use some or all of the features of our website.
