Please note that we may update this policy and any supplemental privacy notices to reflect changes in our practices and applicable law. We will post a notice of any material updates on our sites.
As the transmission of data via the internet is not completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of personal data sent to our site while in transit, and you provide such at your own risk.
However, we have implemented appropriate technical and organizational controls to protect your data against unauthorized access and accidental loss. We limit access to personal data and require that employees authorized to access personal data maintain the confidentiality of that data. We hold our service providers to at least the same data privacy and security standards to which we hold ourselves.
We use personal data collected through our sites for several purposes including:
We do not share your personal data with individuals or organizations that are not directly linked to us, except under the following circumstances:
We will not share your personal data with anyone else for their own marketing purposes.
If you believe personal data you provided us is being misused by a third party, please contact us right away.
We follow a standard technical procedure of using log files on the servers responsible for hosting our sites. These files record data such as requests made by visitors when they access our sites, performance metrics, errors and so on. The information collected by web server log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, a date and time stamp, referring and/or exit pages and resources requested by a visitor’s device. These logs are not linked to information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information contained in these logs is for administering our sites, and for providing quality and continuation of service for innovationsinafrica.com and its related sites.
Data stored in logs is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for achieving the purpose for which it was recorded. With respect to data being recorded to provide services to our visitors, the data is no longer required as soon as each respective visitor session ends.
We retain your personal information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this policy. We will retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations and resolve disputes. No purpose in this policy will require us to keep your personal information for longer than three years.
In certain circumstances, you have the following data protection rights:
We rely on your consent to process your personal information, which may be express and/or implied consent depending on the applicable law. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, by contacting us by using the contact details provided in the “How to Contact Us” section.
However, please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal, nor when applicable law allows, will it affect the processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we are aware are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If you become aware that we have collected personal data from a minor, please contact us. If we learn that we have collected personal data from a minor, we will take steps to delete the data without notice as soon as possible.
