PROTECTING YOUR PRIVACY
Last modified: 30 June 2021
Protecting your privacy is as important to us as it is to you. We want to make sure we comply with the relevant legislation; you trust us with your personal information and we respect that trust. This privacy notice explains why and how we collect, use and store your personal information. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is this notice about?
We want you to understand who you are sharing your information with, what kind of information we are collecting and how we use the information.
In your day-to-day dealings with COCO BEAN we obtain information about you. We want you to know exactly what that information is and what we do with it. After all, transparency is at the core of everything we do.
We need your information to deliver the right product, at the right time and in the right place.
We ask for your information to make sure that we can offer the right product at the right time and in the right place. This includes analysing your data to better understand what your needs are and sending you promotional information.
The Protection of Personal Information Act protects you.
The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) is aimed at protecting your personal information and prescribes what we can and cannot do with it. POPI created an Information Regulator that ensures that companies like Coco Bean manage personal information in a responsible manner that respects your privacy.
This privacy notice is part of our agreement with you.
This notice may change from time to time.
We may have to amend this notice to accommodate changes in our business or services or if legal requirements change.
