Air Relax South Africa is committed to upholding the confidentiality and security of your personal information. The information below explains what we do with the data we collect and applies to information submitted anywhere on this site.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

Air Relax South Africa does utilise cookies. A “cookie” is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while the user is browsing that website. This information helps Air Relax South Africa know how and when our site is visited and which pages are viewed.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visit/s to our website. This means that you might see an Air Relax South Africa ad when browsing the internet because you visited our site.

We use non-personally identifiable information collected through a “cookie” to improve the design and content of our site, to enable us to personalise your Internet experience, analyse trends, gather broad demographic information, administer the site, and for other Air Relax South Africa purposes.

Users may opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting the Google advertising opt-out page.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Links

This website contains links to other sites controlled and maintained by third parties. Air Relax South Africa is not responsible for the privacy practices or the contents of any site linked to the Air Relax South Africa website. The inclusion of hyperlinks to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material of those websites or any association with their operators. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites as their privacy policy may differ from ours.

Analytics

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Security

How we protect your data

Air Relax South Africa will not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any personally identifiable information to any third parties outside our partner organisations and those working directly with them in connection with Air Relax South Africa activities. We will only disclose personally identifiable information we maintain to those not directly working in connection with Air Relax South Africa activities when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena.

Personal information collected by Air Relax South Africa and our websites is stored in secure operating environments and can only be accessed by Air Relax South Africa employees, consultants, or volunteers exclusively for the management of the Air Relax South Africa operations. At present, we centralise records of personal information in South Africa. Therefore, we may transfer your personal information to other countries, including but not limited to South Africa, and may perform some of our data processing of your personal information outside your country of residence. The transfer and processing of your information may be governed by the laws of the Republic of South Africa, or another jurisdiction, which may not offer the same rights and remedies as the laws in your country of residence. Air Relax South Africa will protect your personal information no matter where we process or store it, following this privacy statement. By submitting your personal data to Air Relax South Africa, you hereby consent to this transfer and processing of your personal information.
