A. Privacy Statement

The purpose of the EVN AFRICA website is to take advantage of Internet Technology to enable EVN AFRICA to interact with visitors in a personalized way without forfeiting the privacy of the visitor. As such, privacy is at the core of the EVN AFRICA website. This statement outlines our privacy policy and its terms are incorporated into this Statement. We welcome your input about our policy. Give us your feedback at pbg@evn.co.za

About Us. All information that may be collected as a result of your interaction with the EVN AFRICA website will be controlled by EVN AFRICA and the hosting company of this website, Hetzner.co.za, both based in South Africa. EVN AFRICA and Hetzner may transfer or share your information within the confines of EVN AFRICA and its group of subsidiaries for the purposes of transfer of information and administration of its services. At all times the companies that make up EVN AFRICA will follow this privacy policy.

Disclosures of Your Information. EVN AFRICA or Hetzner.co.za will not give, sell, rent, share, or trade any identifiable personal information regarding our visitors to any third party, with the exception of third-party contractors and service providers (Hetzner) who work with EVN AFRICA to provide the webspace, mailboxes, and other services, and who are strictly prohibited from later use of the information that they may have access to. EVN AFRICA may share non-personal aggregate information or summaries regarding its visitors with partners or other third parties. EVN AFRICA can - and you authorize us to - disclose personal information to local governmental, state, or South African law enforcement officials when required to do so by public authorities or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Information We Collect as Part of Online Information Requests.

Online Registration and eMail. When contacting EVN AFRICA via this website (email), we require you to provide us with your full name, email address and at least one telephone number. We will process this information to assist you in determining which of our services you require, and for the transfer of information via email.

Extra Information. We may ask you for personal information at other times, including, but not limited to physical addresses, more contact information, or whichever information may be required to assist you when you report a problem with this website or any of our other services. Personal information gathered in this way will be used solely for interaction with the visitor/client unless otherwise specifically explained at the time the information is collected. Express consent to other uses of this information will be sought at that time. EVN AFRICA may retain and reference aggregate information about visitors and potential clients gathered in these ways.

Additional Information We may Collect.

From time to time our site may use "cookies." Despite the bad press that has been generated regarding cookies, almost all of it is patently false. Cookies CANNOT harm your computer, nor can they transmit any information to other web sites. They can't send anyone your email address, phone number, or credit card information, and they can't tell your computer to do anything.

A cookie is a piece of text that can be entered into the memory of your computer. It helps EVN AFRICA and its Service Provider Hetzner.co.za to track the frequency of pages visited as well as which pages are visited. Many Internet services deliver cookies to visitors of their Web sites. Cookies store information about your use of their service on your computer where it can only be retrieved by the same service at a later time. Cookies are used by Internet services to make their services much more convenient and personalized. The cookie(s) we use will not store or identify you directly with personal information but they do give us statistical information about our visitors and the pages they visit on our website.

Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session. You are always free to decline our cookies, if your browser permits, or to ask your browser to indicate when a cookie is being sent. You can also delete cookie files from your computer at your discretion. If you would like more information about cookies, you may wish to do a search on Yahoo.com or visit http://www.cookiecentral.com

Cookies also give us your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information.

*** With respect to cookies: We DO SET cookies for Marketing purposes in conjunction with Google Adwords! (Working with Third-Parties!)

Unfortunately, when you submit information about yourself to EVN AFRICA over the Internet the information may travel over many systems that are not under the control of EVN AFRICA or its Service Provider Hetzner.co.za. The Internet is not 100% secure and others may intercept the information that you are sending. One easy and important way to protect your personal information is to guard passwords and close your browser windows when you step away from your computer.
