Privacy Policy

This site is owned and operated by Responsive Tech (Pty) Ltd and Responsive Studio (Pty) Ltd (hereinafter referred to as “Responsive”).  Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us.  At Responsive, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information.  This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

 

INFORMATION WE GATHER AND TRACK

We gather two types of information about users:

  • Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions such as submitting your Curriculum Vitae in response to our vacancy postings.

  • Information we gather through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site.  This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ / users’ needs. Under no circumstances do we divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.

 

We gather user information in the following processes:

(i)  Optional Voluntary Information

We offer the following services which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:

  • Careers Page Policy: Our vacancies are posted on our Careers Page.  We gather the email addresses and personal information of users who voluntarily submit their Curriculum Vitae to us by clicking on the “Apply for this Position” button.  Your details will be sent to us via our [email protected] email account.   

  • Email this to a friend Policy:  Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page or documents to someone else by clicking the “Share this post” button.  The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient.  This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email.  The information is not used for any other purpose.

 

(ii) Usage Tracking

We track user traffic patterns throughout our site.  However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users.  We break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).

We sometimes track and catalogue the search terms which users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users.  We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and do not like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service to you.

 

(iii) Cookies

We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer.  The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself.  A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other site.  We use cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above).  

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser.  If you have set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie.  You do not heed to have cookies turned on to use this site.

 

USE OF INFORMATION

We use any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.

As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide when applying for our vacancies or when they share a link with a friend.

When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like or do not like based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall.  This helps us continue to build a better service for you.  We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users.  But we do not track which terms a particular user enters.

We create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns.  We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety for our users of the public.

 

SHARING OF INFORMATION 

We use the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs.  We will not share or sell personal information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

 

SECURITY 

We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems.  Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
 

YOUR CONSENT 

By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by Responsive.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. Your use of the website will be subject to the then-current website privacy policy.
