What Personal Information About Users Does African Licence Gather?
The information we learn from users helps us personalise and continually improve your experience at African Licence. We use the information to give you a customised experience, help with your study, update you on scores and progress via emails and the website, and let you upgrade at the right time and to the right plan. We also use this information to improve our platform, prevent or detect abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical or other functions on our behalf.
Here are types of information we gather:
Information You Give Us: we receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. This includes your name, username, password, practise test date, preference for how to use the test and input into our discussion forums or feedback tab. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future educational experiences for you, improving our platform, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: we receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use "cookies" and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses African Licence.
E-mail Communications: to help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from African Licence if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Communication Preferences.
What about Cookies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser and to provide features such as auto-login & personalised preferences.
If you do leave cookies turned on, be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
Does African Licence share the information it receives?
Information about our users is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling it to others. African Licence shares customer information only as described below.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with partners, but we do not share personal information with them. We may at our own discretion share aggregated data with key partners to help them understand how our users behave.
Third Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include running our discussion boards, sending e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes such as marketing. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by the British Virgin Island’s Data Protection Act.
Protection of African Licence: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our User Agreement; or protect the rights, property or safety of African Licence, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in a way that is contrary to the commitments made in this Privacy & Cookies Policy.
With your consent: other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
How secure is information about me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
What about Links to other websites
African Licence includes links to both internal (African Licence) and external (non-African Licence) websites. We select links that are editorially relevant to the content they are linking from and are suitable for the likely audience.
These links are included for a number of reasons, including:
- for further relevant information or other key source material
- for background information
- for useful practical information
- for entertainment or enjoyment
- for further informed comment
External links are selected and reviewed when the page is published. However, African Licence is not responsible for the content of external websites. This is because:
African Licence does not produce them or maintain/update them
African Licence cannot change them
they can be changed without African Licence’s knowledge or agreement.
Some of our external links may be to websites which also offer commercial services, such as online purchases. The inclusion of a link to an external website from African Licence should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website or the site's owners (or their products/services).
Links to user generated material
Some of the content we link to on both African Licence and external sites is generated by members of the public (messageboards and photo-sharing sites for example). The views expressed are those of the public and unless specifically stated are not those of African Licence. If you consider this content to be in breach of the house rules as indicated on the website, please alert the moderators or site owners on the sites where the material appears.
What Information Can I Access?
African Licence gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with African Licence for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.
What Choices Do I have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to purchase a service or to take advantage of such African Licence features as Your Profile and Preferences. You can add or update information on these pages.
If you do not want to receive e-mail or other communication from us, please adjust you User Communication Preferences. If you do not want to receive User Agreement and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy & Cookies Policy, those notices will still govern your use of African Licence and orders placed with African Licence and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.
Are Children Allowed to Use African Licence?
African Licence does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell products for purchase by adults over the age of 16. If you are under 16, you may use African Licence only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
Notices and Revisions
If you have any concern about privacy at African Licence, please contact us via the feedback tab on the site with a thorough description and we will try to resolve the issue for you.
Our business changes constantly and our Privacy & Cookies Policy and the User Agreement will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy & Cookies Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers
