Lingoproz is committed to bringing you information tailored to your individual needs and recognises the importance of protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information collected about our users. We respect your privacy and aim to protect it. We will therefore protect information transmitted to us as best we can and only use it for the purpose described. This message relates to all information that is gathered and made available on Lingoproz.co.za.
We do not work with unsolicited contacting.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION COLLECTED BY LINGOPROZ
Lingoproz collects information in several ways. Some personal information - such as name and email address - is gathered when you register for our services.
When you are in a section of Lingoproz and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Lingoproz, its divisions and/or its third party service providers unless it is specifically stated otherwise.
Promotions that run on Lingoproz may be sponsored by companies other than Lingoproz or may be co-sponsored by Lingoproz and another company. Some or all data collected during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor.
Please be aware that Lingoproz advertisers or websites that have links on our site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those websites are not covered by this privacy statement.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
No personally identifiable information (e.g. email addresses of newsletter subscribers) will be intentionally shared with any third party unless, we believe, in good faith, that such release is necessary to:
- Comply with the law
- Protect the rights, property, or safety of Lingoproz, our visitors, or the public.
- Provide supportive services to Lingoproz (see "Third parties" below).
- We may also transfer personally identifiable information to a buyer of all or part of our business in the event
of a sale.
Agents of Lingoproz provide supportive services, such as e-mail list management services for Lingoproz' newsletter, hosting for Lingoproz' website, etc. However, these third parties are not allowed to use any information disclosed to them for any purpose other than the support of Lingoproz.
A "cookie" is a piece of data stored on the visitor's hard drive containing information about the visitor. In some circumstances, we may use "cookies" to test visitor reactions to some particular aspect of Lingoproz or to track the number of visitors for our advertisers. Lingoproz' use of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information. You can usually modify the security setting of your browser to block or to accept cookies. Check your browser's help function for more information.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Users should be aware that when they are on Lingoproz, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There may be links to other sites from Lingoproz pages that take you outside our service, e.g. clicking on a banner advertisement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. Lingoproz does not control the privacy policies of business partners, advertisers, sponsors or other sites to which we provide hyperlinks.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online - for example, via message boards or chat - that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While Lingoproz strives to protect its users' personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you disclose this information at your own risk.
COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS
Lingoproz shall at all times comply with applicable legislations and will therefore reserve the right to refuse registration to any individual or organisation if such registration contravenes the law. However, Lingoproz affirms that no unreasonable restrictions will be imposed. Lingoproz will make all attempts to give prior warning of such action, whenever and wherever possible.
POLICIES FOR INDIVIDUALS UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE
Lingoproz encourages parents, teachers and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the sites. No information should be submitted to or posted at Lingoproz by users under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent, teacher or guardian.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Lingoproz cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Lingoproz will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary for the purpose it was collected.
