MICRO DIVISION PRIVACY STATEMENT
MICRO DIVISION is committed to protecting the privacy of users of our site. At Micro Division, we intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information, including the registration data. As part of the normal operation of this site, we collect information from you. This Privacy Statement describes the information we collect about you and what may happen to that information.
INFORMATION GATHERED THROUGH THE MICRODIVISION.co.za WEB SITE
Currently, MICRODIVISION.CO.ZA uses personal information as a basis for notifications to users, “opt-in” emails, and in order to implement the contents of the Terms and Conditions of Use governing the website (the “Terms”). User names and email addresses (as well as any additional information that a user may choose to submit) are not publicly available on the MICRODIVISION.CO.ZA site nor will it be made available to any third party without the consent of the subscriber unless South African Law requires this.
MICRODIVISION.co.za may conduct surveys or other studies of its customer base and usage for marketing and planning purposes. With respect to information collected from such surveys or studies, and in the event that responses are to be publicly disclosed, users will be notified at the time they take the survey and MICRODIVISION.co.za will disclose only aggregate information regarding its users and not personal information identifying any specific individual. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in cases where surveys allow users to submit written comments, and where MICRODIVISION.co.za advises users of the possibility of such disclosure at the time they take the survey, MICRODIVISION.co.za reserves the right to disclose text information provided by any user through such a survey, provided that no personal information identifying that user is disclosed. Participation in such surveys are not obligatory; MICRODIVISION.co.za does not conduct mandatory surveys. Circumstances under which MICRODIVISION.co.za would publicly disclose such aggregate information include, but are not limited to, sharing survey results with the site population and publicizing overall usage data in press communications.
Other Notification: In order to implement or enforce the Terms and Conditions of MICRODIVISION.CO.ZA, may use personal information to contact users on an individual basis.
At no time, unless law requires such disclosure, disclosure is necessary to aid law enforcement, or a user specifically authorizes such disclosure, will MICRODIVISION.co.za disclose individual user personal information that is not publicly available to unrelated third parties.
LINKS WITH OTHER SITES
MICRODIVISION.co.za may contain links to other websites, whether owned or controlled by MICRODIVISION.co.za affiliates or unrelated third parties. Please note that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from those of MICRODIVISION.co.za. MICRODIVISION.co.za is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of any linked website. We encourage you to read the privacy statement of any website that you may visit.
“Opt-in” Emails: Users may “opt-in” to receive site notifications, newsletters or other information via email. Users may remove themselves from such services at their discretion. Any email sent to an “opt-in” list will include directions for how a user may remove himself or herself from the list, or a URL where the user may find such directions.
Users can view their data on their personal profile page. When technically feasible, users are permitted to update their personal information directly through www.microdivision.co.za. When such updating service is not technically feasible, MICRODIVISION.co.za will make reasonable efforts to assist users in updating their personal information. Requests may be send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
To secure site integrity, MICRODIVISION.co.za employs measures including but not limited to security audits, use of encryption tools and software, and other reasonable security measures and procedures.
Internal access to users’ private and non-public personal information is restricted to site administrators and individuals on a need-to-know basis.
In the event that MICRODIVISION.co.za becomes aware that site security is compromised or user non-public information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including but not limited to external security attacks, MICRODIVISION.co.za shall take reasonable measures which it deems appropriate, including but not limited to internal investigation and reporting, and notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities, notwithstanding other provisions of this statement.
If MICRODIVISION.co.za becomes aware that a user’s personal information provided to MICRODIVISION.co.za has been disclosed in a manner not permitted by this Privacy Statement, MICRODIVISION.co.za shall make reasonable efforts to notify the affected user, as soon as reasonably possible and as permitted by law, of what information has been disclosed, to the extent that MICRODIVISION.co.za knows this information.
UPDATES TO THE PRIVACY STATEMENT
To substantively update the Privacy Statement, we will both post the changed version and its effective date here. Concurrently with any substantive change to the Privacy Statement, we will email notice of the change to known users at least 15 days in advance (or such shorter or longer time as mandated by law or any judicial or government body).
While this Privacy Statement expresses MICRODIVISION.co.za’s standards for maintenance of private data, MICRODIVISION.co.za is not in a position to guarantee that the standards will always be met. There may be factors beyond our control that may result in disclosure of data. As a consequence, MICRODIVISION.co.za disclaims any warranties or representations relating to maintenance or nondisclosure of private information.Contact Us
