Privacy Notice

Introduction


Crime Stats SA takes your right to privacy seriously, and wants you to feel comfortable using this web site. This privacy policy deals with personally-identifiable information (referred to as 'data' below) that may be collected by this site.


This policy does not apply to other entities that are not owned or controlled by Crime Stats SA, nor does it apply to persons that are not employees or agents of Crime Stats SA, or that are not under Crime Stats SA's control.


1. Collection of data
Registration for an account on this site requires a valid e-mail address, your first name, surname, and company name and telephone number.

 

As on many web sites, Crime Stats SA may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information. Information about how advertising may be served on this site (if it is indeed Crime Stats SA's policy to display advertising) is set forth below.


2. Use of data
Data may be used to customize and improve your user experience on this site. Efforts will be made to prevent your data being made available to third parties unless (i) provided for otherwise in this Privacy Policy; (ii) a service provided on our site requires interaction with a third party, or is provided by a third party, such as an application service provider; (iv) pursuant to legal action or law enforcement; (v) it is found that your use of this site violates Crime Stats SA's policy, terms of service, or other usage guidelines, or if it is deemed reasonably necessary by Crime Stats SA to protect Crime Stats SA's legal rights and/or property; or (vi) this site is purchased by a third party, in which case that third party will be able to use the data in the same manner as set forth in this policy.


In the event you choose to use links displayed on this web site to visit other web sites, you are advised to read the privacy policies published on those sites.


3. Cookies
Like many web sites, this web site sets and uses cookies to enhance your user experience -- to remember your personal settings, for instance. Advertisements may display on this web site and, if so, may set and access cookies on your computer; such cookies are subject to the privacy policy of the parties providing the advertisement.


However, the parties providing the advertising do not have access to this site's cookies. These parties usually use non-personally-identifiable or anonymous codes to obtain information about your visits to this site.


You can visit the Network Advertising Initiative if you want to find out more information about this practice, and to learn about your options, including your options with regard to the companies that may serve advertising on this site.


4. Changes to this privacy policy
Changes may be made to this policy from time to time. You will be notified of substantial changes to this policy either by through the posting of a prominent announcement on the site, and/or by a mail message sent to the e-mail address you have provided, which is stored within your user settings.


5. NO GUARANTEES
While this privacy policy states standards for maintenance of data, and while efforts will be made to meet the said standards, Crime Stats SA is not in a position to guarantee compliance with these standards.


There may be factors beyond Crime Stats SA's control that may result in disclosure of data. Consequently, Crime Stats SA offers no warranties or representations as regards maintenance or non-disclosure of data.
