Privacy Policy

The SA Hunters and Game Conservation Association (“SAHGCA”) is sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet and recognises the importance of safe guarding. This Privacy Policy applies to data provided by you and collected by SAHGCA through its websites as well as both online and offline services. We will use the provided information in the course of our dealings with you to identify you as a member of our organisation. SAHGCA will ensure that all personal information is treated in accordance with the applicable data privacy legislations.


For your convenience, we have provided this statement explaining our online information practices.


Collection of your personal information

In general, you are able to visit SAHGCA‘s websites without revealing who you are or any information about yourself. However, our web servers will collect information (standard information that browsers sends to every website visited) for statistical purposes, such as the number of visits, the pages viewed, your IP-address, the browser type and language, access time, etc. SAHGCA uses this information for improving its sites and services.


When visiting certain SAHGCA sites (such as the online member administration application) we ask you to consent to providing personal information, such as your email address, name, telephone number, etc. This information is required in order for us to provide you with the information and services you may request from us. This information will therefore be kept by us as long as is necessary for us to use your information as described above or to comply with any legal obligations.


At no time will credit card information, such as the Primary Account Number, Service Code and Expiration date be stored by SAHGCA. Personal information collected on SAHGCA sites and services may, in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, be stored and processed in any country in which SAHGCA maintain facilities.


Security of your personal information


SAHGCA has a number of security measures in place to protect your personal information. However, when transmitting personal information over the internet, please bear in mind that no transmission over the internet can ever be guaranteed secure. Therefore, please note that SAHGCA cannot guarantee the security of any personal information that you transfer over the internet to us.


Cookies

We may also use technologies, such as cookies, to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of our services provided to you (e.g. when you log in to the member administration application). A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if preferred.


Other sites

SAHGCA‘s website may contain links to other sites. Although we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not in any way responsible for the content of the privacy practices employed by other sites.


Changes to our privacy policy

Our privacy policy may be changed by us at any time. The revised policy will be posted to this page so that you are always aware of the information we collect, how we use it, and under which circumstances we disclose it. We
encourage you to periodically review this statement to know how SAHGCA is protecting your information.
