INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY BY THE UNIVERSITY
Generally, you can visit our websites without explicitly telling us who you are or revealing any personal identifiable information about yourself. We do, however, record your IP address, browser type, pages visited and other such information. Log files are used to analyse website usage and may be kept in an aggregated and anonymised form for historical records. The broad demographic information gathered about our visitors help us assess our target audience, and to determine which external sites are most effective in referring visitors to us. This helps us to align our content to the needs of our audiences. The University does not share the collected information with any other organisation for commercial purposes.
INFORMATION COLLECTED MANUALLY BY THE UNIVERSITY
You may come across registration forms that require you to provide us with personal identifiable information (like your name, surname, email address, contact numbers, and postal or work address), and perhaps some additional information. The collected information may be shared within the University as a whole unless otherwise stipulated during the collection process. The collected information may be stored and processed outside your country (if outside South Africa) and by using the University’s websites, you consent to any such transfers being made outside your country.
USE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED BY THE UNIVERSITY
The information provided by you is used to get in contact with you in response to a query from you, to improve the University websites or, in case of a conference, to register you as a participant. No personal information submitted by you will be shared or made public without your prior consent or unless required to do so by law.
