Our commitment to maintaining your privacy

AZ Legal (Pty) Ltd’s privacy policy has been created because we recognise and respect your right to privacy. Accordingly, we are committed to the protection of information belonging to you that identifies you to third parties (“personal information”) and the appropriate use of your personal information. This document discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices.

What personal information do we collect?

Certain personal information can be obtained automatically as you navigate through the website. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, your internet protocol address, the software that you are using to browse the internet and your domain. This assists AZ Legal (Pty) Ltd to manage the site and provide functionality to you. We may use this information for our own marketing purpose but will not provide it to any third parties.

We collect information on our site visitors collectively, including which sections of the site are most frequently visited, how often and for how long. This data is always used as aggregated, non-personal information. AZ Legal (Pty) Ltd utilises this information to improve and enhance our services by monitoring the areas on the site that are most popular to you.

“Cookies” accessed or stored by the website may retain personal information including your name, email address, postal address and telephone number, but you have the choice to switch off “cookies” on your computer. Any “cookie” used by the website is not accessible to other internet websites.

What do we do with your personal information?

One of the purposes of our website is to inform you of who we are and what we do. We collect and use personal information (including name, address, telephone number and email) to better provide you with the required services, or information. We would therefore use your personal information in order to:

  • Respond to queries or requests submitted by you.
  • Administer or otherwise carry out our obligations in relation to any agreement you have with us.
  • Create products or services that may meet your needs.

To optimise our services, we may wish to use your personal information for direct marketing. As we respect your privacy, we will only use your personal information for this purpose when you are aware thereof and, if required, we will request your consent prior to using your personal information for direct marketing.

Additionally, if at any time you wish us to stop using your personal information for any or all of the above purposes, please contact us as set out below. We will stop the use of your information for such purposes as soon as it is reasonably possible to do so.

Except as set out in this privacy policy, we will not disclose any personally identifiable information without your permission unless we are legally entitled or required to do so (for example, if required to do so by legal process or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime), or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and/or defend our rights, property or personal safety and those of our users/customers or other individuals.

Please be assured that we will not use your information for any of these purposes, if you have indicated that you do not wish us to use your information in this way when submitting the information, or at a later stage.

Third party links

We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites. Such content is subject to their terms of use and any additional guidelines and privacy information provided in relation to that use on their website.

We recommend that you check the policy of each website you visit to better understand your rights and obligations, especially when you are submitting any type of content on those third party websites. Please contact the owner or operator of such website, if you have any concerns or questions.

Keeping our records accurate
