Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy (the "Policy") governs the manner in which Uitkoms Home for Girls ("Uitkoms", "we", "us", "our") collects, uses, maintains, and discloses information from users (each, a "User", "Visitor", "you") of the uitkoms.org.za website (the "Site"). This Policy applies to the Site.

FUNDAMENTALS

We are committed to protecting your privacy on the Site. We do not collect any information that you do not choose to provide. These are some fundamentals to consider with regard to our position in protecting your privacy:

  • We will not ask you for your personal information, unless we truly need it in order to process and complete a transaction
  • If any information is collected from you, it will not be shared with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our services, or protect our legal rights
  • We do not store any personal/non-personally-identifying information (described below) on our own servers

1. POLICY

Below is the Policy, which is designed to incorporate the above-mentioned fundamentals.

1.1 Site Visitors

Like most website operators, we do collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and [most] servers typically make available. This includes your browser information (known as a User Agent), referring site, as well as the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting said information is to better understand the way in which our visitors use the Site. From time to time, we may release said information (in aggregate form), for example by publishing a report on usage trends of the Site.

1.2 Protection of certain personally-identifying information

We disclose potentially personally-identifying information and personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors, and affiliated organisations that (a) need to know that information to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at the Site, and (b) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organsations may be located outside of your home country. By using the Site, you consent to the transfer of such information to them when necessary.

We do not rent or sell such information to anyone under any circumstances.

Other than the above, we disclose such information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental requests or, when we believe, in good faith, that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or that of third parties and the public at large.

1.3 Browser/Session Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time a visitor makes a request (visits a page on the website).

We store client cookies on your computer in the event that you log into an administration/management-end of the Site. We also store a session cookie on your computer (this cookie holds no personally-identifying information, and is wiped at the end of the session).

Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browser preferences accordingly, with the drawback being that certain features of the Site may not function correctly without them.

1.4 Logging

For debugging purposes, certain client-side software may log its events to your browser's console, if one exists. This log does not contain any personal information, and is cleared when the browser/browser tab is closed, or the page is refreshed/redirected.

For security purposes, some events will not be logged.

1.5 Business Transfers

If we, or substantially all of our business assets were to be acquired, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, any collected information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of our business and standing assets may continue to use your information as set forth in this Policy.

2. POLICY CHANGES, ALTERATIONS

Although most changes are likely to be minor, we may change this Policy from time to time, and at our sole discretion. We therefore encourage you to check this page for any changes to this Policy.

If any changes are made, a description of these changes will be available below.

No changes have been made.

3. YOU ACCEPTANCE OF THIS POLICY

By using the Site, you signify your acceptance of this Policy. If you do not agree with the terms set out in this Policy, please do not make use of the Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to this Policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
