We only use service providers we trust and who have agreed to keep your personal information secure and confidential and to only use it for the purposes for which we shared it with them.
We use service providers to help us

Some of the service providers that we use may be located in other countries.

We provide for appropriate safeguards by means of contracts between us and our foreign service providers.
Sometimes the law requires that we share your information, for example, the Financial Intelligence Centre Act, (FICA) 2001.

We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information against loss, interference, unauthorised access, use, modification, disclosure, or other misuse.

We will continuously review our security controls and processes to ensure that security risks are identified and addressed.
If something should happen, we have taken steps to minimise the threat to your privacy and we will let you know if your personal information has been compromised. We will also let you know how you can help minimise the impact of a breach.
- WE DO NOT KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION LONGER THAN WE NEED TO
We will not keep your personal information longer than we need to unless we are legally required to. We take legal requirements, contractual obligations and the expectations and requirements of our customers into account when we determine how long we should retain information.
