When does this Policy apply?
You agree that this policy will apply if you access or use our website at https://www.voxcroft.ai/. When visiting, signing up for any communications and making any enquiries on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address or other details to help you with your experience. This policy will apply to you, and will create a legally binding contract between us, whenever you use or access our website.
This policy is important to us. We are committed to taking steps to protect your privacy when you use our website and implementing business practices that comply with all relevant legislation, including POPI, GDPR and the South African Electronic Communications and Transactions Act 25 of 2002. In this policy, we explain how we will use and protect your personal information.
What information is collected
We generally store and use the following information: personal details (such as your name, email address or telephone number), IP address or cookie information, geo-location information, any other legally required information and information which we reasonably need to perform our obligations when you use our services.
How we collect your information
We can collect your information directly from you when you use our website or any of our services or if we request it from you. In very limited instances, we may collect personal information from third parties where such information is publicly available or for legitimate business purposes.
How we use your information
We use your information to provide our website and services to you and generally for purposes of our relationship. We may process the information we collect from you when you visit, sign up for any communications, make any enquiries on our site, respond to a survey or marketing communication, view the website, or use certain other site features. We may use your information for other purposes but only if the law allows for it, or if you consent to it, or if it is in the public interest.
Purposes for processing information
Cross-border flow of information
We may transfer your information to foreign countries mainly for retention purposes or if our service providers are cross border (such as website hosting servers) or use systems cross border. If you continue to use our website, you expressly agree that we may transfer the information cross border for these purposes. We will only share information cross border to recipients who have similar laws like POPI or GDPR that apply to them, or who entered into an agreement with us to include the relevant POPI principles. To the extent required by applicable law, when we transfer your information to recipients in other countries, we will take all reasonable measures to protect that information.
Children's information and special personal information
We do not intentionally collect or use information of persons under the age of 18 years unless with consent of a competent person (someone like the parent or legal guardian), or if the law otherwise allows or requires us to process such information.
Sharing of personal information
In general, we may share your information within the VoxCroft group of companies, with our affiliates, third party service providers, regulatory and governmental authorities or tax authorities (if we are requested by them to do so), and any other third party if the law requires from us to share it. We will keep your personal information confidential and only share it with others in terms of this policy, or if you consent to it, or if the law requires from us to share it. We have trusted relationships with carefully selected third parties who perform services for us. All these service providers have a contract with us in terms of which they have a legal obligation to secure your personal information and to use it only in a way that we permit.
How do we protect your information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards consistent with legal requirements where the personal information was obtained, designed to protect against unauthorized or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of, or access to, personal information that you have provided to us.
Right to object
You may on reasonable grounds object to us using your information. If you object, we will stop using your information, except if the law allows its use.
