This Privacy Policy summarizes the information regarding what happens to all personal visitor data on the site. It also provides information regarding the type of data received, how it is processed by our servers and how you can correct or change such information. It is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy carefully, especially before providing any personal data on the Site. Please be informed that our privacy policy is subject to revision over time and we will do all possible to keep our visitors protected and up to date with our existing policy.

Please note that your utilization of the Briefcase Africa Website signifies your consent to the privacy policies as have been stated in the understated series of paragraphs.

USER DATA COLLECTION, STORAGE AND UTILISATION

There are two types of data collected by the site for the benefit of site upgrades and for the purpose of user integration and understanding. These two types of data are:

1. Personal Identifiable Information (Personal Data) which is any data that can be used to identify specific individuals, such as your name, email address and phone number.

Briefcase Africa collates Personal Data when subscriptions are made to our services, when visitors follow our social media accounts, participate in chat rooms, blogs or other user forums, respond to polls or surveys, purchase merchandise via the site, contests and other promotional opportunities; or seek help from our customer service departments. Personal Data may also be obtained from reputable third parties, such as credit agencies or e-mail hosts. 

2. Anonymous Data are data collated via automatic media such as sites visited and in what sequence these sites were visited. This is done with the utilization of various technologies. We also collect IP addresses from visitors. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or internet enabled devices whenever you’re accessing the internet. We however DO NOT link IP addresses to any Personal Data, so although visiting sessions will be logged to help us gain a deeper understanding into our users, what they are viewing and how we can best improve our offerings. Visitors will remain anonymous to Briefcase Africa and all Briefcase Africa staff except upon authorization. Password information may also be collated from visitors upon log in, as well as computer and connection information such as browser type or version. During some visits, we may use software tools, such as JavaScript, to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, time spent on certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page.

EMBEDDED CONTENT FROM OTHER WEBSITES

It is of importance to note to the general public that articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites and as such, would behave in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the speculated website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

USE OF COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

We are always seeking new ways to improve user experience on our platform. This is why our webpages utilise technologies such as “cookies” to collate data.

WHAT IS A COOKIE AND HOW ARE THESE OBTAINED?

A cookie is a small data file that writes to your hard drive for the purpose of record keeping when you visit a website or webpage. Cookies allow the site to measure traffic activity improve user experience by assistive password recalls and viewing preferences, preventing the event of reregistering upon clicks or visits to “member only” portions of the website, tracking the progress and number of entries in activities that require registration or entry.

Additionally, if visitors have asked us to send information regarding upcoming or updated products and promotions, using cookies, we collate data regarding sites visited and in what order they have been visited which in time may allow us limit the materials provided to you based on your prior online activities or preferences. Most browsers are automatically preset to accept cookies; however, if you have your reservations for or against the receipt of said cookies, browser settings can be manually tweaked to refuse cookies or alert visitors when cookies are being sent, but it is possible that some parts of the website will not function properly if you do so.

Please note that if visitors leave comments, those comments and all metadata attached would be retained. This is to ensure ease of recognition and conduct adequate approval of any follow-up comments automatically rather than holding them in a moderation queue.

Visitors registered on our website (if any) will also be liable to having personal information provided on visitor profile retained indefinitely. All visitors however reserve the rights to see, edit, or delete all personal information at any time. Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

VISITOR RIGHTS

Visitors holding valid accounts on the website or have otherwise left information of any sort within the comment sections of the website reserve the right to request receipt of an exported file of speculated personal data withheld on the website’s servers, including any data visitors provided to us. Visitors are also eligible to make requests for the total and untraceable deletion of all and any personal data withheld within the website’s servers. Please note that this information executively excludes any data which Briefcase Africa feels obliged to withhold for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your security on our platform is of the highest importance and we do not take it any lightly. This is why we uphold and maintain industry-grade server protection and have SSL in place so data you enter on Briefcase Africa is wholly encrypted.
