When you contact us by social media, email, telephone, or online chat with a query, complaint, or request, we collect the information included in your message. We use the information we collect to reply to, investigate, and resolve your query, complaint, or request.
We will use the information you provided on the entry form to administer the competition and to communicate with you about the competition.

We do not knowingly collect the personal information of children without the consent of a parent or guardian
If we tailor our products or services for children, we will ask for consent from the child's parent or guardian.
We use suppliers and service providers who we trust to assist us in providing our products to you. They have agreed to keep your information secure and confidential and to only use it for the purposes for which we have sent it to them.
Here are some of the instances when we share your information:
Sometimes we will be required by law to share your information. For instance, we may be required to share your information with the South African Fraud Prevention Services.
Some of the service providers we use may be located in other countries; for instance, our cloud storage service. These countries may not have the same levels of protection of personal information as South Africa. If this is the case, we require that they undertake to protect the personal data of our customers to the same level that we do.
We will not retain your information for longer than we need to unless we are legally required to do so.
We have implemented reasonable security measures based on the sensitivity of the information we hold. These measures are in place to protect the data from being disclosed, loss, misuse, unauthorised access, and from being altered or destroyed.
We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks. Still, no system is perfect, and we cannot guarantee that we will never experience a breach of any physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If something should happen, we have taken steps to minimise the threat to your privacy. We will let you know of any breaches that affect your personal information and inform you how you can help minimise the impact.
You also have a role to play in keeping your information secure. For example, you should never share personal information with us in an email, because while our servers are protected, it is still possible for that email to be intercepted. Instead, contact us at +27121117000.
You have the right to know what kind of personal information we have about you, to correct it, and to opt-out of marketing.

You can request access to the information we have about you or correct your personal information by contacting our deputy information officer at email@example.com.
It can take us up to 21 days to respond to your request because there are procedures that we need to follow. In some instances, we may require proof of your identity, and sometimes changes to your information may be subject to additional requirements such as valid proof of residence.
