Some of these services are moderated and all may be accessed for technical reasons. DataTegra does not control the content that users post to these forums or social networks.

We also share Personal Information with third parties who provide services to DataTegra, such as order fulfillment, analytics, event / campaign management, web site management, information technology and related infrastructure provision, customer service, e-mail delivery, auditing, and other similar services. When DataTegra shares Personal Information with third party service providers, we require that they use your Personal Information only for the purpose of providing services to us and subject to terms consistent with this Policy.

DataTegra may disclose your Personal Information as we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (d) to enforce our terms and conditions; (e) to protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates; (f) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, and/or that of our affiliates, you or others; and (g) to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings), we may transfer the Personal Information we have collected to the relevant third party.

Other Information

We may use, transfer, and disclose Other Information we collect for any purpose, except where applicable law requires otherwise. If we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we will only use it in the same way that we are permitted to use and disclose Personal Information.

How We Collect Information

DataTegra and our third party service providers may collect both Personal Information and Other Information from a variety of sources that generally fall into three categories:

•    Direct Interactions: From your use of and interaction with us through the Channels and other activities such as account creation, submission of registrations and forms, or sales inquiries and transactions.
•    Publicly Available Data / Data from Third Parties: Other data you may have made publicly available, such as social media posts, or data provided by third party sources, such as marketing opt-in lists, or data aggregators.
•    Automated Interactions: From the use of technologies such as electronic communication protocols, cookies, embedded URLs or pixels, or widgets, buttons and tools.

Although DataTegra's use of Automated Interactions may change over time as technology evolves, the following descriptions are designed to provide you with additional detail about DataTegra's current approach to information collected from Automated Interactions.

Electronic Communications Protocols: As is true when you visit most websites and apps, DataTegra may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type), your IP address (which may identify your general geographic location or company), and date and time.

DataTegra may also automatically receive and record information about your interaction with the Channels, such as clickstream information (when each DataTegra webpage was visited and how much time was spent on the page), or general geo-location data.

Cookies

DataTegra's server will query your browser to see if there are "cookies" previously set by our electronic Channels. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store on a Web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. Cookies may collect information, including a unique identifier, user preferences, profile information, membership information, and general usage and volume statistical information. Cookies may also be used to collect individualized web site use data, provide electronic Channel personalization, or conduct and measure the effectiveness of advertising in accordance with this Policy. Some cookies may remain on users' computers after they leave the Website. While the majority are set to expire within 1-24 months of your last visit to the website that set the cookie, others may not expire because of their nature, like cookies that remember opt-out preferences.

Your browser may provide you with information and control over cookies. You can set your browser to alert you when a cookie is being used, and accept or reject the cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Users can generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use the site, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion. Cookies, however, are important to the proper functioning of a site, and disabling them may degrade your experience and interfere with Web site features and customizations.

DataTegra has engaged one or more third party service providers to track and analyze both individualized usage and volume statistical information from interactions with electronic Channels. The service provider(s) set cookies on behalf of DataTegra. DataTegra also uses other third party cookies to provide advertising and personalization services in accordance with this Policy, and to track the performance of DataTegra advertisements on their websites and DataTegra e-mails.

Managing Cookie Preferences

You may access or change your cookie preferences at any time. If you have any problems using this cookie preference mechanism, please send an e-mail with relevant details/information to info@datategra.co.za.

Flash Cookies

We may use Flash cookies, also known as "local shared objects," on our electronic Channels that employ Flash technology. Flash cookies are used to remember the site's settings to personalize the look and feel of the site. Like normal cookies, Flash cookies are represented as small files on your computer. One method of preventing Flash cookies from being placed is to adjust your preferences in the Macromedia Website Privacy Settings Panel at macromedia.com.

Embedded URLs

DataTegra may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of the electronic Channels without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate the electronic Channels, but are not associated with Personal Information and are not used beyond the session.

Embedded Pixels and Similar Technologies: On the electronic Channels, DataTegra and its service providers may use embedded pixel technologies for the purposes of identifying unique user visits (as opposed to aggregate hits), and for advertising purposes. In addition, embedded pixels or other technologies may be used in e-mails and our online display advertising to provide information on when the e-mail or ad was opened to track marketing campaign responsiveness; information collected using these technologies may be associated with the recipient's e-mail address.

Widgets, Buttons, and Tools: Our electronic Channels may include widgets, which are interactive mini-programs that run on our site to provide specific services from another company (e.g., links to bookmarked sites), along with buttons or other tools that link to other companies' services (e.g., a "Like" button or third party map). The widget, button or tool may collect and automatically send Personal Information, such as your e-mail address, or Other Information (such as your browser information, or IP address), to a third party. Cookies may also be set or used by the widgets, buttons or tools to enable them to function properly or for other purposes, which may include advertising. Information collected or used by a widget, button or tool, including cookie settings and preferences, is governed by the privacy policy of the company that created it.

Physical Location: We may collect the physical location of your device and use it to provide you with personalized location-based services or content. In some instances, you may be permitted to allow or deny such use of your device's location, but if you choose to deny such use, we may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalized services or content.

Preferences, and Opt-Out

E-mail Marketing. DataTegra enables you to opt out of marketing communications. You may opt out of e-mail marketing by modifying your online profile as described above or by using our general unsubscribe automated link that is included in DataTegra marketing e-mails. You can find details on how to automatically unsubscribe from e-mail communications. 

Some non-marketing communications are not subject to general opt-out, such as communications related to product download, sales transactions, software updates and other support related information, patches and fixes, conferences or events for which you have registered, disclosures to comply with legal requirements, and (where permitted by law) quality assurance surveys. Some additional communications with partners are also not subject to general-opt out, including product alerts, updates, contractual marketing and sales materials, and other notices related to partner status.

Information-Sharing Choices. DataTegra only shares Personal Information with selected companies after providing users the ability to make choices about the sharing, or as otherwise described in this Policy. There are limitations to opting out of such sharing in the case of: (1) joint sales or joint events; (2) where the customer has requested follow-up which involves DataTegra partners; (3) where third parties are required to accomplish the transaction or perform the service; and (4) where required by law.

Third Party Permission-Based Lists. On occasion, DataTegra may use third-party lists to send communications about DataTegra products and services. These lists, which are maintained by third parties, include users eligible under applicable law to receive e-mails from other companies such as DataTegra. When we use such lists, the communications will include mechanisms to opt out of receiving DataTegra marketing communications. If you have trouble opting out, or if you wish to make us aware of any issues related to a third-party mailing, you may contact us directly through our inquiry form.

Advertising

DataTegra uses some third parties to administer a limited set of DataTegra advertisements on third party electronic channels. No Personal Information is provided to the advertisers as part of this process, but aggregate profile information, such as user community, may be used in the selection of advertising to make sure that it has relevance to the user. On some banner ads, an embedded pixel may be present, and while it does not associate with a cookie or other Personal Information, it may return session connection information that allows advertisers to better determine how many individual users have clicked on the ad banner.

DataTegra also may participate in third party advertising networks that use Other Information they collect on our behalf to show you DataTegra related advertisements that are tailored to your individual interest on third party sites. This technique includes retargeting, contextual or behavioral advertising. Any retargeting or behavioral advertisement placed on our behalf will contain information on or near it that informs you about the ad network and how to opt-out of viewing such advertisements, or you may also opt out directly with the ad network vendor. Please note that opting-out does not mean that you will stop receiving ads. It means that you will stop receiving ads that have been targeted to you based on your visits across non-affiliated websites over time. If you delete cookies, change computers or use another operating system, you will need to opt-out again.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is very important to DataTegra. We use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards that are designed to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

In addition, DataTegra uses standard security protocols and mechanisms to exchange the transmission of sensitive data such as credit card details. When you enter sensitive Personal Information such as your credit card number on our site, we encrypt it using secure socket layer (SSL) technology.

In the event that your Personal Information is acquired, or is reasonably believed to have been acquired, by an unauthorized person and applicable law requires notification, DataTegra will notify you by e-mail, fax, or U.S. mail. DataTegra will give you notice promptly, consistent with the reasonable needs of law enforcement and/or DataTegra to determine the scope of the breach and to investigate and restore the integrity of the data system.

Sensitive Information

We ask that you not send us, and you not share any sensitive Personal Information (e.g., Identification numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background or trade union membership).

Contact Us

DataTegra has appointed a Chief Privacy Officer. If you believe your Personal Information has been used in a way that is not consistent with this policy or your specified preferences, or if you have further questions related to this policy, please contact the Chief Privacy Officer by sending an e-mail with relevant details/information to marketing@datategra.co.za.
