Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the web pages, newsletters and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by Power Team SA. The following discloses our Privacy Policy.

powerteam.co.za does track which content you access, however individual information on accessed content is deemed private and is therefore not made public. This information is only used internally as it relates to Power Team SA’s business processes, customer care and in the overall processes of improving our business and service offering.

WE VALUE YOUR PARTICIPATION AND TRUST AND WE ARE COMMITTED TO A NO SPAM POLICY.

What information is collected and how it is collected?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, which serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from powerteam.co.za, our web servers automatically recognise that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine website interactivity. Our web servers do not record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

How we use single-pixel gifs or tracking scripts?

powerteam.co.za may use single-pixel gif images or tracking scripts, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to evaluate website interactivity and gather some general statistical information. Power Team SA may use single-pixel gifs or tracking scripts that can track personal information from cookies that may have been previously placed on a user's computer.

What other information do we request?

We may also request your personal details including but not limited to e-mail address, mailing address for the purposes of registering as a site user, conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about seminars).

Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy. We will also not sell or rent your email address to a third-party.

When you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask for your name, address and e-mail address so that we can administer the contest and notify winners.

Will we disclose the information we collect to outside, third parties?

Power Team SA will disclose personal information when required by law or in good faith in the belief that such action is necessary to:

  1. Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on powerteam.co.za
  2. Protect and defend the rights or property of Power Team SA or visitors to powerteam.co.za
  3. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal notice, or the rights of third parties
  4. Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities.

What else should I know about my privacy when online?

The powerteam.co.za website may contain links to other websites. Please check with those sites to determine their privacy policy.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – through e-mail or discussion lists, for example, or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.

This is how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our website. The information we receive depends upon what you do when visiting our site.

Automatic Information

This information enables us to run site usage tools and create statistics about our site. These statistics help us to better understand how our site is being used and what we can do to make it more useful to visitors.

Information You Provide Us

We use the information that you provide us (both online and offline) for responding to your requests, customising the material presented to you based on your past visits to our website, to communicate with you, to improve the content of our website and to improve our service offering. The primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you customised services, features and content and to give you an efficient personalised experience that best meets your needs.

If you choose to identify yourself by sending us an email or completing an online form, Power Team SA employees will have access to such information in order to contact you for direct marketing purposes.

Use of "Cookies"

"Cookies" are small files that are placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customised and personalised services. No personal information is stored in these cookies.

From time to time, Power Team SA may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify unique website users and which areas of the Power Team SA website you have visited. This information may be used to personalise our services to you.

WE DO NOT RECORD ANY INFORMATION OTHER THAN THE WAY YOU INTERACT WITH THE POWER TEAM SA WEBSITE.

You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience on our site and other websites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

Email Communication

Power Team SA, from time to time, distributes an online newsletter as well as announcements relating to Power Team SA, in which we believe our stakeholders will be interested. Power Team SA recognises that users may not wish to be contacted about new or related services; therefore you may opt out of any e-mail marketing or newsletters that may result from use of the site. When you receive an email, you will receive instructions on how to remove yourself from that list.

All our email communications are tracked to evaluate interaction success and to better understand how stakeholders respond to communications. Typically, Power Team SA uses email tagging to identify which links in the email you click on and how you interact with the Power Team SA website. This information may be linked to the unique cookies stored on your hard drive.

Your Consent To This Agreement

The above policies are effective as of 2016. Power Team SA reserves the right to change this policy from time to time without prior notice.

By using the Power Team SA website, you consent to the collection and use of information by us as specified above. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of the kind and type of information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
