Introduction to Privacy Policy

Everard Read Daily News, owned and managed by Caelum Naidoo, takes the privacy of its users seriously and commits to protect their personal information and use it in a lawful manner. This document outlines our approach and responsibilities in managing personal information by describing how we collect, use, disclose, and protect this information, ensuring compliance with the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) of South Africa. Understanding this policy ensures that our users are fully informed of their rights and our obligations.

Collection of Personal Information

We collect various types of personal information, including but not limited to, name, email address, contact details, usage data, cookies, and IP addresses. This information is voluntarily provided by our users through forms on our website, subscription to our newsletter, or when they engage with our services. The gathered data helps us to enhance our services, provide personalized experiences, and keep our users updated with the latest news. Any information collected is relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed.

Use of Personal Information

The personal information collected might be used for several purposes such as to provide and maintain our service, to notify users about changes to our services, to allow users to participate in interactive features of our service when they choose to do so, to provide customer care and support, to provide analysis or valuable information so that we can improve the service, to monitor the usage of the service, to detect, prevent and address technical issues, and to provide you with news, special offers and general information about other goods, services, and events which we offer. This information will not be shared with any third parties unless mandated by law, necessary to enforce our policies, or vital for the protection and security of a user, us, or the public as required or permitted by law.

Disclosure of Personal Information

The personal information we store is not sold, exchanged, or transferred to external parties. However, we may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates, and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. Furthermore, we may use third-party service providers to help us operate our business and the Site or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes provided that you have given us your permission.

Security of Personal Information

We take the security of your personal information very seriously and implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. These measures include technical, physical, and administrative strategies designed to guard against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site. Despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and, therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of the personal information.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We have the discretion to update this privacy policy at any time. When we do, we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. We encourage Users to frequently check this page for any changes to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect.
