1.2. By continuing to use our Products/Services or any of our Sites, you are accepting and consenting to the practice described in this Privacy Policy. Therefore, please read carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your Personal Information (as defined below) and how we will treat it.


2. Interpretation and definitions:


2.1. Words that are defined in the Protection of Personal Information Act No. 4 of 2013 (“POPIA”) and used in this Privacy Policy will bear the same meaning as in POPIA unless the context requires otherwise;


2.2. Reference to “consent” shall include any electronic means by which you convey your acceptance and acknowledgement that you agree to us processing your Personal Information, whether it be by the clicking of a button, subscribing, submitting or sending of a message, updating your profile or clicking “I Agree” button or pressing the “enter” button, or by any other means, to submit/convey any information to us;


2.3. Any reference to singular shall include plural, and any reference to a certain gender shall include the opposite gender.


3. Introduction:


3.1. We recognise the importance of protecting your privacy in respect of your Personal Information collected by us.


3.2. We are serious about the privacy of the personal information of our clients and third parties that deal with us and therefore treat it in the most secure way as reasonably possible and in a way that is aligned to the requirements of the Protection of Personal Information Act 4 of 2013 (“PoPIA”) of South Africa. For clarity, The Protection of Personal Information Act (PoPIA or the PoPI Act) is a piece of legislation which governs the law of data protection and privacy in South Africa, where InterArts Funding is registered.

3.4. We will delay notifying you of the unauthorized access or acquisition of your Personal Information if a public body responsible for detection, prevention or investigation of offences or the Information Regulator informs us that notifying you will impede a criminal investigation.


3.5. When we notify you of the compromise to the security of your Personal Information, we will provide you with sufficient information to allow you to take protective measures against the potential consequences of the compromise.

5. Variation of Privacy Policy:


We reserve the right to vary the terms of this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. We do not undertake to provide you with personal notice of any changes. In the event of material changes, we will provide notice by means that are reasonable under the circumstances, such as by posting a notice on the Websites. Your continued use of the Websites following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy means you accept those changes.

When you sign up for any of our products and/or when we receive an enquiry, request or order, we may request, receive, store and record many details that are defined as personal information in PoPIA. We specifically process the following Personal Information about you:

6.2. Anonymous data collection


You may, as a matter of principle, visit this website without telling us who you are. We are notified merely of the name of your Internet Service Provider, the website from which you accessed our site, and which of our website pages you visit. This information is evaluated for statistical purposes and your anonymity as an individual user is preserved.


6.3. Cookies


We may place a "cookie" on your computer. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, sent to your browser from a website's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. We may use cookies to keep track of your choice of language and home page preference and to gather usage data that will help us generally improve the quality of our Website. Should you not want us to send you cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept cookies.


6.4. Use Of IP Address


An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer whenever it is connected to the Internet.  We may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of the Web Site. We do not link IP addresses to personal information, which means that your session may remain anonymous.  However, the Owner cannot guarantee that this will always be the case.  For example, it may be necessary to identify a particular user when it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Terms and Conditions or to protect our service website or other interests.


6.5. Personally, Identifiable Information


We may collect information that can be used to identify you (Personally Identifiable Information). Please note that we only collect Personally Identifiable Information when you specifically provide it to us such as to sign up for a service or register for our newsletter or in response to a survey. You may also be asked to create a user account and provide certain information including your name, email addresses, physical address, and telephone number.

We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall- protected) servers.
