The privacy of our visitors to Ubuntu Connect (http://www.ubuntuconnect.co.za) is important to us.
At Ubuntu Connect (http://www.ubuntuconnect.com), we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here you will find information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit Ubuntu Connect (http://www.ubuntuconnect.com), and how we safeguard your information. We will never sell your personal information to third parties.
Personal Data Security: Ubuntu Connect has implemented technology, policies and processes aimed at protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your personal information. We will update and refine these measures on an ongoing basis. Please note that Ubuntu Connect cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites you may access using links from this website. We recommend that you check the policy of each site you visit and that you contact that specific organisation if you have any concerns or questions. Please be aware that Internet communications are inherently insecure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may be routed through any number of countries before reaching our website. Ubuntu Connect therefore assumes no responsibility or liability of any nature whatsoever for the interception or loss of personal information beyond our control.
Log Files: As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as Vodacom, MTN or Telkom etc), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Third Party Advertisements: We also use third party advertisements on Ubuntu Connect (http://www.ubuntuconnect.co.za) to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geo-targeting purposes (showing localised marketing) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies: We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (“interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, ID numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Amendments: Ubuntu Connect reserves the right to amend or modify this Privacy Statement at any time. Whilst your name and email address which is supplied to us when registering for the Services will not automatically be made available to third parties, we nevertheless are able to trace the source of such information and will be made available to the authorities if required by law.
Communication Monitoring : Monitoring or recording of your calls, emails or SMSs may take place for business purposes to the extent permitted by law, such as for example quality control and training for the purposes of marketing and improving the Services. However, in these situations, we will not disclose information that could be used to personally identify you.
