Privacy and Cookies Policy – ickabogkompetisie.co.za
LAPA Publishers, a division of Penguin Random House South Africa (Pty) Ltd (the “Company”) with the physical address 380 Bosman street, Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa, is the “data controller” in respect of your personal information. Please note that this registered office address is not an address to which you should send fan mail. This Privacy and Cookies Policy sets out the basis on which any of your personal information we collect from you or third parties, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us in relation to the website www.ickabogkompetisie.co.za (the “site”) and LAPA Publishers (which operates the site).
Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding your personal information and how it will be treated.
HOW AND WHEN WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
It is not the Company’s intention to collect any personal information about you, however, the Company may incidentally collect personal information from you when you:
We will indicate where any personal information we have requested is mandatory or optional. We will also explain the consequences should you decide not to provide information which we have indicated is mandatory. In some circumstances this may mean we are unable to provide you with a certain service.
We may also collect information about you from third party sources, such as from your use of other websites which we operate, and from related third parties such as sub-contractors or publishing companies with whom we work.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We may collect and process personal information about you which you provide to us, such as your contact details (e.g., your name, address, country, or email address); and demographic information (e.g., your age and/or other information that may identify you as an individual)
If you contact us with a complaint or query, we may keep a record of the correspondence.
PURPOSES FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may process your personal information for the following purposes:
LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will only process your personal information where we have a legal basis to do so. The legal basis will depend on the purposes for which we have collected and use your personal information. In almost every case the legal basis will be one of the following:
WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
The personal information that we collect may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the South Africa, including countries, which have less strict, or no data protection laws, when compared to those in Europe and the UK.
Whenever we transfer your information as described in the paragraph above, we will take steps which are reasonably necessary to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your personal information and to make sure it is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy and Cookies Policy. In these cases, we rely on approved data transfer mechanisms to ensure your information is subject to adequate safeguards in the recipient country.
HOW WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We take steps to ensure that the personal information that you provide is retained for only as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. After this period it will be deleted or in some cases anonymised. For example, we may keep a record of any correspondence with you (for example if you have made a complaint) for as long as is necessary to protect us from a legal claim.
If you are under the age of 13, you may only use the site and provide personal information if you have the consent of, and are supervised by, a parent or guardian. We maintain reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal information collected from children, and we do not ask for more personal information than is necessary for a child to participate in an activity.
Upon proper identification, a parent or legal guardian may access and review the personal information we have collected about his/her child, request deletion, or refuse to allow further collection or use of the information.
We maintain reasonable technical and organisational measures to protect personal information from loss, misuse, alteration, or unintentional destruction. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information as it is transmitted to us.
DISCLOSING YOUR INFORMATION
We may disclose your personal information to the following categories of third parties:
COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
Cookies are small files saved to your browser or device, and can be divided into four categories: essential, functional, analytical, and advertising. The only cookies we use are essential cookies, which enable core functionality, security, and accessibility (e.g., how a webpage looks and operates in relation to the device or browser you are using). These essential cookies are “session cookies” and are deleted at the end of a browser session (normally when a user exits his/her browser).
You can object to such cookies through your browser settings, however, please note that without essential cookies, some features or activities may be limited or not available to you. For more information on how to control cookies on your browser, or about cookies generally, please see https://www.aboutcookies.org/.
We also use a local storage mechanism (LSM), in place of cookies, to improve and customise your experience on our website. The LSM acts like a functional cookie but adds an additional layer of privacy in that the LSM cannot be read by our servers, only you! This means that the LSM cannot be used for tracking you online. Browser settings will not allow you to manage LSMs, you may be able to manage them by alternative means.

DO NOT TRACK
Given the divergent practices of organisations that offer browsers and the lack of a standard in the marketplace, we do not respond to DNT signals at this time.
You have certain rights in relation to your personal information. These include: the right to object to the processing of your information for certain purposes, the right to access your personal information, and the ability to erase, restrict or receive a machine-readable copy of your personal information.
We will handle any request to exercise your rights in accordance with applicable law and any relevant legal exemptions. If you wish to exercise any of these rights please conduct us using the contact details below.
You may also have the right to complain to a data protection authority if you think we have processed your personal information in a manner which is unlawful or breaches your rights. If you have such concerns we request that you initially contact us (using the contact details below) so that we can investigate, and hopefully resolve, your concerns.
Our website and other digital properties may, from time to time, contain links to and from third party websites and services (including third party social media platforms). If you follow a link to any of these websites and/or services, please note that they have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for them. Please check any such third party privacy policies before you submit any personal information to these websites or services.
