Privacy Policy


General Principles


Protecting your privacy is very important to us. There are also various Acts, which impose obligations on us as far as privacy protection is concerned. We have accordingly developed this Privacy Policy to protect your personal information and keep it confidential. In doing so, we have paid particular attention to the following acts:


Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (Act 108 of 1996);


Promotion of Access to Information Act (2 of 2000); Electronic Communications and Transactions Act (ECT) (25 of 2002); and Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-related Information Act (RICA) (70 of 2002).

We endeavour to comply with laws of other countries but cannot and do not warrant that we do. We do everything we reasonably can to protect your rights of privacy on systems and websites controlled by us, but we are not liable for any unauthorised or unlawful disclosures of your personal and confidential information made by third parties who are not subject to our control, for example advertisers and websites that have links to our Site.

You should take note that the information and privacy practices of our business partners, advertisers, sponsors or other sites to which we provide hyperlinks, may be different from ours. We also cannot warrant the security of the information, which you transmit to us. We categorise information about you (collectively referred to as " Personal Information") as follows:


Profiling Information :


Information which you provide when you Subscribe or register for a Service Information about your personal identity such as race, gender, marital status, religion, age etc.; Your financial information such as your banking details and any information relating to your income and lifestyle levels; and Your contact details such as your physical addresses, postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and the like.

Your account history is held with us including (without limitation) all billing information and communications, payment history etc. We maintain this in encrypted form on secure servers.

Any of your information which you provide when you use our Services in an unencrypted manner and/or to an open, public environment or forum including (without limitation) any blog, chat room, albums, community, classifieds or discussion board, is not confidential, does not constitute Personal Information, and is not subject to protection under Privacy Policy. Since such public environments are accessible by third parties, it is possible that third parties may collect and collate and use such information for their own purposes. You should accordingly be careful when deciding to share any of your Personal Information in such public environments. Information, which is disclosed publicly, is also shared with our affiliates, third party service providers, sponsors of competitions etc. unless expressly stated otherwise. We are not liable to you or any third party for any damages that you or any third party may suffer howsoever arising from your disclosure of Personal Information in any public environment. You accordingly disclose information in a public environment at your own risk.

General exceptions


If we are required to intercept, disclose, monitor and/or store your Personal Information:

Such interception, disclosure, monitoring and storage may take place without your knowledge. In that case, we will not be liable to you or any third party for any damages howsoever arising from such interception, disclosure, monitoring and storage. In order to ensure that all our Users comply with the User Rules, we may monitor your Personal Information to the extent that this may be required to determine compliance and/or to identify instances of non-compliance. We may under certain circumstances procure an element of the Services from a third party service provider, for example Telkom SA. To the extent that it may be necessary, and solely for the purposes of providing the Service to you, you agree that we may disclose to such third party any of your Personal Information that may be necessary for the procurement of services from the third party. In addition to the general limitation in the Terms, we will not be liable to you or any other third party for any damages (as defined in the clause 14 above) suffered by you or any other third party howsoever arising from the disclosure of your Personal Information.
