We use suppliers and service providers who we trust to assist us in providing our products to you. They have agreed to keep your information secure and confidential and to only use it for the purposes for which we have sent it to them.

  • to help monitor the effectiveness of our promotions and advertising
  • to help us manage our business, for instance, accountants and professional advisors.

We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks. Still, no system is perfect, and we cannot guarantee that we will never experience a breach of any physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If something should happen, we have taken steps to minimise the threat to your privacy. We will let you know of any breaches that affect your personal information and inform you how you can help minimise the impact.

You also have a role to play in keeping your information secure. For example, you should never share personal information with us in an email, because while our servers are protected, it is still possible for that email to be intercepted. Instead, contact us at +27121117000.
