Autofind Privacy Policy

Autofind.co.za | Disclaimer

 

Website Visitors


Like most website operators, Autofind.co.za collects non–personally–identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

Autofind.co.za’s purpose in collecting non–personally identifying information is to better understand how Autofind.co.za visitors use its website. From time to time, Autofind.co.za may release non–personally–identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Autofind.co.za also collects potentially personally–identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Autofind.co.za does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally–identifying information, as described below.

 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information


Certain visitors to Autofind.co.za choose to interact with Autofind.co.za in ways that require Autofind.co.za to gather personally–identifying information. The amount and type of information that Autofind.co.za gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a newsletter to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Autofind.co.za by requesting Autofind to search for cars, for example are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal  information required to process those transactions.

In each case, Autofind.co.za collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor interaction with Autofind.co.za.

Autofind.co.za does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally–identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website related activities.

 

Aggregated Statistics


Autofind.co.za may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Autofind.co.za may monitor the most popular blogs on the site or use a third–party online analitics service to help identify trends. Autofind.co.za may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Autofind.co.za does not disclose personally–identifying information other than as described below.

 

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information


Autofind.co.za discloses potentially personally–identifying and personally–identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Autofind.co.za’s behalf or to provide services available at Autofind.co.za’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Autofind.co.za website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Autofind.co.za will not rent or sell potentially personally–identifying and personally–identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Autofind.co.za discloses potentially personally–identifying and personally–identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Autofind.co.za believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Autofind.co.za, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of Autofind.co.za and have supplied your email address, Autofind.co.za may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on at Autofind.co.za and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Autofind.co.za takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally–identifying and personally–identifying information.
