Your privacy is critically important to us. At Afryk.com we have a few fundamental principles:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We too don’t like services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
In our products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
If you have questions about accessing or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.
It is Afryk’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Afryk.com and our parent company, Elastico, collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Afryk’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Afryk’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Afryk may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Afryk also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Afryk.org blogs. Afryk only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Afryk’s websites choose to interact with Afryk in ways that require Us (afryk.afryk.com) to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Afryk gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at Afryk.com to provide a username and in some cases, an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Afryk – by upgrading to a Premium or Supremium Pro account, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Afryk collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Afryk. Afryk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Afryk may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Afryk may monitor the most popular blogs on the Afryk site or use spam screened by our filters to help identify spam. Afryk may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Afryk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Afryk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Afryk’s behalf or to provide services available at Afryk’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Afryk’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Afryk will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Afryk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Afryk believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Afryk, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Afryk website and have supplied your email address, Afryk may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Afryk and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Afryk takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
