Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the web pages, newsletters and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by APC Storage Solutions SA Pty (Ltd).

The following discloses our Privacy Policy:

APCStorageSolutions.co.za does track which content you access, however, individual information on accessed content is deemed private and is therefore not made public. This information is only used internally as it relates to APC Storage Solutions SA’s business processes, customer care and in the overall processes of improving our business and service offering.

WE VALUE YOUR PARTICIPATION AND TRUST AND ARE COMMITTED TO A NO-SPAM POLICY.

What information is collected and how is it collected?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, which serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from APCStorageSolutions.co.za our web servers automatically recognise that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine website interactivity. Our web servers do not record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

How do we use single-pixel gifs or tracking scripts?

APCStorageSolutions.co.za may use single-pixel gif images or tracking scripts, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to evaluate website interactivity and gather some general statistical information. APC Storage Solutions SA may use single-pixel gifs or tracking scripts that can track personal information from “cookies” that may have been previously placed on a user's computer.

What other information do we request?

We may also request your personal details, including but not limited to e-mail address, mailing address for the purposes of registering as a site user, conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about seminars).

Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the enquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict no-spam policy. We will also not sell or rent your e-mail address to a third party.

When you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask for your name, address and e-mail address so that we can administer the contest and notify winners.

Will we disclose the information we collect to outside, third parties?

APC Storage Solutions SA will disclose personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

1. Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on APCstoragesolutions.co.za
2. Protect and defend the rights or property of APC Storage Solutions SA or visitors to APCStorageSolutions.co.za.
3. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal notice or the rights of third parties
4. Co-operate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities.

What else should I know about my privacy when online?

The APCStorageSolutions.co.za website may contain links to other websites. Please check with those sites to determine their privacy policy.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example through e-mail, discussion lists or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.

This is how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our website. The information we receive depends upon what you do when visiting our site.

E-mail communication


APC Storage Solutions SA, from time to time, distributes an online newsletter as well as announcements relating to APC Storage Solutions SA which we believe our stakeholders will be interested in.

When you receive an e-mail, you will be given instructions on how to remove yourself from that list.

All our e-mail communications are tracked to evaluate interaction success and to better understand how stakeholders are responding to communications. Typically, APC Storage Solutions SA uses e-mail tagging to identify which links in the e-mail you click on and how you interact with the APC Storage Solutions SA website. This information may be linked to the unique “cookie” stored on your hard drive.
