PRIVACY POLICY

SEE BELOW FOR OUR PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via our website. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site. This site is intended for use by residents of South Africa

YOUR CONSENT

By using this site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

ACTIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

Like many web sites, this site may actively collect information from you, its visitor, both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail or feedback forms. Some of the information that you submit may be personal information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc). From time to time, some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (e.g. a newsletter subscription) or participate in a particular activity (such as a survey). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional. Please be aware, however, that if you decide not to provide that information, you may not be able to use some of the features of this web site. The Gas Mule processes personal data for specific and limited purposes, which we inform you about when we ask you for information. We may collect and use personal data to provide you with products or services, to send you products and services you have requested, to market products and services which we think may be of interest to you, or to communicate with you for other specific purposes. The Gas Mule keeps your data only for as long as is reasonably needed for each purpose and in accordance with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or documentation retention requirements.

PASSIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

As you navigate through this site, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (i.e, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags or Web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the Website you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. This site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and Internet tags or Web beacons. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this site might not work without cookies.

This site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to site visitors, customize the site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the site for your use. Such information is not combined with personally identifiable information collected elsewhere on the site unless you have consented.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

Except as otherwise stated, we may use your information to improve the content of our website, to customise the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.

The South African ‘Protection of Personal Information’ Bill sets forth several measures to protect personal data, including:

In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

This site may contain links or references to other websites to which this Privacy Policy does not apply. We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy of every website you visit.
