PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: May 01, 2016

Gardint.co.za wishes to offer its visitors an enhanced, interactive and personalized experience, by applying the latest Internet technology.

In order to do so, we may use Personally Identifiable Information, such as your name, e-mail address, street address and telephone number, – subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy, – only for the purposes of managing your interaction with the site. Your privacy is important to us, so we will never trade, barter, exchange, sell or rent your information.

How we collect information

We may collect information by specifically requesting it from you. This generally occurs depending on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services you choose, such as requests for quotes, communication with us, inquiries, and other interactive areas of our site. This information may be collected automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to you.

We use cookie technology. Cookie technology consists of tiny pieces of data or a small text file that is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Among other things, the cookie may store your name and e-mail address, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit.

This cookie may also control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement or interactive message while visiting the site. We may also log your IP address and the name of your Internet Service Provider. Cookies enable us to achieve our goal of providing a valuable online experience to you. You can, however, set up your Internet browser to disable cookie technology.

As we adopt new technology, we may also gather information through other means. You can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do so, you may not be able to access certain portions of the site.

You may also be asked to re-enter your details at every interaction or visit, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

Why we collect information

We collect information to ensure that you receive a more individualized, customized and enhanced service – adding value to your online experience. By doing this we are better equipped to meet your needs by presenting the most appropriate content, services and products to you.

What we do with the information we collect

We want to help you maintain your privacy on the Internet. We may use the information we collect to be able to better meet your needs.

We may also use the information we collect for reasons such as establishing the general demographics, statistics or market information or to compile a broad profile of visitors who access and transact via the site.

Please note that all information is aggregated, therefore no identifiable individual or company information is shared with other parties.

Aggregated Information may for example, be used to identify usage patterns to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive).

We may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on Gardint.co.za to communicate with you about your project or inquiries and customization preferences; our Terms of Service and our Privacy Policy; and follow-up on services and products relating to your inquiry or project.

Personally Identifiable Information collected by Gardint.co.za may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting and other communications with you.

Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may need to access such information.

Storage of information

Information collected by us via the site is stored in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public.

Hyperlinks to Third-Party websites

This web-site may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies adopted by the proprietors of these other sites. We will treat your information in total confidence and will only share your information with our affiliates, investors, alliance partners and agents.

Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements

Gardint.co.za expects its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. Be aware, however, that third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices.

For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on Gardint.co.za page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party.

Also, through Gardint.co.za you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, features, or offers from other parties. Gardint.co.za is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties.

You should check the applicable Privacy Policy of any third party when you provide information on a feature or page operated by a third party.

While on our site, our advertisers, promotional partners or other third parties may use cookies or other technology to attempt to identify some of your preferences or retrieve information about you.

For example, some of our advertising is served by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before.

Other features available on our site may offer services operated by third parties and may use cookies or other technology to gather information.

Gardint.co.za does not control the use of this technology by third parties or the resulting information, and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Gardint.co.za and this Privacy Policy.

When we will disclose information

We will use your information only as permitted by law. We may disclose information if required to do so by law or if it is required to protect the safety of our customers or the public, or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and defend our rights or property, the site or our customers.

In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.

We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary.

Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

Governing law

This policy and the use of this Site are governed by Local and International law. If a dispute arises under this Policy we agree to first try to resolve it with the help of a mutually agreed-upon mediator. Any costs and fees other than attorney fees associated with the mediation will be shared equally by each party.

If it proves impossible to arrive at a mutually satisfactory solution through mediation, we agree to submit the dispute to binding arbitration at the best suited location. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitration may be entered in any court with jurisdiction to do so.

Right to amend this policy

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy at any time. Your continued use of our site following the posting of amendments to these terms will mean you accept those amendments.

Information collected prior to the time any amendment is posted will be used according to the rules and laws that applied at the time the information was collected.

All amendments to this Privacy Policy will be posted on the site (“the current version”). Unless otherwise stated the current version shall supersede and replace all the previous versions of the Privacy Policy.

A print-out signed by the webmaster responsible for maintaining this site will serve as prima facie proof as to the date of publication and content of the current version.
