All information collected from you will be kept confidential in our database. We will store your data for as long as you are a registered user or paid member. When you cease to be a registered user, we will keep your data for 2 years. After this period we may continue to store your information, but it will purely be used or processed for legal reasons, e.g. to assist with the detection or prevention of crime, for the protection of your safety or the safety of a third party, as required by HM Revenue and Customs.
By providing us with sensitive personal data, such as sexual orientation, you consent to us publishing this information.
We will never sell, rent, trade, loan or disclose your personal identifiable information to any other party without your express consent. We may, however, share non-identifiable, aggregated or statistical data with advertisers and third parties to improve our services by proving more targeted advertising, services or products.
We may pass your personal information to third parties to provide some elements of our services to you where this disclosure is necessary. These third parties are bound to provide at least the same level of service or protection to you where they are located in South Africa. However, we offer an international service and some countries do not provide the same level of data protection as South Africa. You consent to our transferring your personal information to countries or jurisdictions that do not provide the same level of data protection as provided in South Africa.
Any resident of South Africa is entitled to a copy of any of the personal information we hold about you, and any request will be honoured by any resident of South Africa upon receipt of a small administration charge.
