We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, resolve disputes, accomplish administrative tasks, contact you, enforce our agreements with you, including our Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy, and to comply with applicable laws and cooperate with law enforcement activities.

 

The legal basis for this processing is your consent or our legitimate interests, namely monitoring and improving our Site and Service.

COOKIES AND ONLINE TRACKING

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files created by the website, downloaded to and stored on any internet enabled device—such as your computer, smartphone or tablet—when you visit our homepage. The browser you’re on uses the cookies to forward information back to the website at each subsequent visit for the website to recognise the user and to remember the user’s choices (for example, login information, language preferences and other settings). This can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you.

 

What types of cookies do we use and for what purposes do we use them?

We use different types of cookies to run our Site.  The cookies indicated below may be stored in your browser.

 

Mandatory and performance cookies (Essential and Functionality). These cookies are necessary for the website to function and will be placed on your device once you access the website. Most of these cookies are set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. These cookies provide a convenient and complete use of our Site, and they help users efficiently use the website and make it personalised. These cookies identify the user’s device in so far, so we would be able to see how many times our Site is visited, but do not collect any additional personally identifiable information. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will then not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information and are stored on the user’s device until the end of session or permanently.

 

Analytical cookies (Statistics). These cookies collect information about how users interact with our Site, for example, to determine which sections are most frequently visited and which services are most often used. The collected information is used for analytical purposes to understand the interests of our visitors and how to make the Site more user friendly. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site and will not be able to monitor its performance. For analytical purposes, we may use third-party cookies. These cookies are stored on the user’s device for as long as set by the third-party cookie provider (ranging from one day to permanently).

 

Marketing and targeting cookies (Advertising). These cookies collect information about how users interact with our Site, for example, to determine which sections are most frequently visited and which services are most often used. Before you agree to the use of all cookies, Insiderz will only collect anonymous data regarding the access of the Site.

For analytical purposes, we may use third-party cookies. These cookies are stored permanently on the user’s device.

 

Third-party cookies. Our Site uses third party services, for example, for analytics services so we would know what is popular in our Site and what is not, thus making the website more usable. You can learn more about these cookies and their privacy policy by visiting the websites of respective third parties. All information processed from third party cookies are processed by the respective service providers. At any point in time you have the right to opt-out from data processing by third party cookies.

CONSENT TO TRANSFER OF INFORMATION

Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, servers and databases located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as your jurisdiction. Please be advised that we may transfer your information to and from any state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction, and process it in the United States or other adequate states. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to any such transfer.

 

 

SECURITY OF INFORMATION

In the event you are provided with an opportunity to establish and account or profile on our Site, you may be able to access your Personally Identifiable Information via the Site with your password and username. This password is encrypted. We advise against sharing your password with anyone. If you access your account via a third-party site or service, you may have additional or different sign-in protections via that third-party site or service.

 

You need to prevent unauthorised access to your account and Personal Identifiable Information by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-in mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer, browser, or mobile device by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. Unauthorised entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. If we believe that the security of your information may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development.

 

We are committed to taking all reasonable precautions to safeguard the privacy of personal information which has been provided by its users. We use technical, contractual, administrative and physical security steps to protect your personal information. Security measures such as restricted access and the use of passwords and encryption have been adopted to protect your personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. Our employees have been trained to respect your privacy at all times and those employees with access to your personal information shall use your personal information strictly in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We will protect your credit card information by using industry standard encryption technology.

 

Please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet or via e-mail is completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee protection of all personal information in all cases. For example, we cannot guarantee protection against interception, misappropriation, misuse, or alteration, or that your information will not be disclosed or accessed by the unauthorised acts of others. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. If you provide us with your credit card number, you should not send it electronically unless the email is encrypted, or your browser indicates that the access to our website is secure. Materials posted to online forums such as bulletin boards or chat rooms are public, not secure, and may be viewed by anyone. Any personal information you post may be collected and used by anyone and may result in unsolicited messages from other parties.

 

 

DATA RETENTION

When any personal data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected, we may destroy the personal information in a manner that takes into account its sensitivity.

 

We will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary (taking into consideration the purpose for which it was originally obtained). The criteria we use to determine what is “necessary” depends on the particular personal information in question and the specific relationship we have with you (including its duration).

 

Our normal practice is to determine whether there is/are any specific laws permitting or even obliging us to keep certain personal data for a certain period of time (in which case we will keep the personal data for the maximum period indicated by any such law).

 

We would also have to determine whether there are any laws and/or contractual provisions that may be invoked against us by you and/or third parties and if so, what the prescriptive periods for such actions are (this is usually three years). In the latter case, we will keep any relevant personal data that we may need to define ourselves against any claims, challenges or other such actions by you and/or third parties for such time as is necessary.

 

Where your personal information is no longer required by us, we will either securely delete or anonymise the personal information.

 

Please contact us if you wish to inquire about deleting your own personal data.

 

 

MINORS 

The Site/Service is not directed to children under the age of eighteen (18). If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us at the email address listed below. If we become aware that a child under this age has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.

However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data.

However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

 

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

  • consent; or
  • that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

 

To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

 

If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection.

 

You may access your personal information that we hold by contacting us using the contact details below.  We will provide you with a copy of the personal information we keep about you.  However, we reserve the right to charge you a reasonable amount for providing copies of any personal information you request, to take into account the time, cost and effort involved.

 

You may request that the personal information we hold about you be corrected by contacting us.  If we do not agree to your request for a correction, you may then request that we take reasonable steps to attach to the information a statement of the correction sought but not made.

 

Please be aware that some of these rights may be limited or unavailable where we have an overriding interest or legal obligation to continue to process the data, or where data may be exempt from disclosure.
