Who is the Information Officer at GDome?
Our Information Officer is Mr Cameron Clarke. If you need to contact our I.O for any reason please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org marked for his attention.
What law are we referring to with referencing POPIA?
In a South African context, we are referring to being compliant with the Protection of Personal Information Act but we also comply with GDPR requirements for any international visitors.
This policy is very likely to be updated in the future as laws and requirements alter. If there is an important change that affects you or your information then we will notify you by email.
The current version of this document is highlighted at the top of this page. As new versions are published we will save older versions which can be made available to you upon request.
What kind of information do we collect or process?
Depending on your interaction on our website and what you choose to opt-in for we may process basic or more detailed support.
When you opt-in you may be asked to provide basic support such as your name and email address and you may be asked if you are selling online already or if you are interested in starting to sell online.
Under some circumstances, your data may be anonymized. This means that your support (for example your IP address) may be collected but we have no access to it nor can we use it for any purpose other than for analytics and reporting purposes.
Any personally identifiable data will be protected within our systems.
Where are we collecting your data?
We collect your data on our website when it is submitted to us and via technology partner platforms (like Zoom) when you join us there and willingly submit your support.
We may use data collected by 3rd party advertising partners (like Facebook) where you have given your consent to them. In these instances, we will not have direct access to your information but will have access to be able to show relevant ads to you via their anonymized support.
Should your personal information change, please support us and provide us with updates to your personal information as soon as reasonably possible to enable us to update your personal information.
You may choose to provide additional personal information to us, in which event you agree to provide accurate and current information, and not to impersonate or misrepresent any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with anyone or anything.
How do we use your personal information?
If required to fulfil a service we may pass your information over to third-party partners such as courier partners like The Courier Guy, DHL, FEDEX etc. as they will need your delivery details for delivery or payment partners like PayFast, PayPal or Stripe so that they can process the payments which you have agreed to.
The Action Distribution website is built on the Shopify website platform and they have access to our database and information. Shopify is a US-based company and complies fully with all GDPR and other privacy requirements. This serves as an international transfer of data as their secure servers are outside of South Africa. The data is encrypted and securely transferred and stored in secure servers which have security measures of a more stringent requirement than POPIA.
We are entitled to use or disclose your personal information if such use or disclosure is required in order to comply with any applicable law, subpoena, order of a court or legal process served on us, or to protect and defend our rights or property. In the event of fraudulent online payment, Action Distribution is entitled to disclose relevant personal information for criminal investigation purposes or in line with any other legal obligation for disclosure of the personal information which may be required of it.
GDome undertakes never to sell or make your personal information available to any third party other than as provided for in this policy.
Let's talk about marketing and your subscription to our emails
You may, from time to time, receive emails relating to content on:
- Online businesses
- Business in general
- Opportunities, deals and discounts
Any and all marketing emails sent from Action Distribution include the option to unsubscribe at the bottom of the email in one click. So, if you would like to be unsubscribed from our emails then simply click that link and we will honour that request.
Occasionally we will send targeted campaigns and there may be an option to opt-out of that campaign plus the option to unsubscribe from all our marketing emails. Please check that you select the right option for what you would like to achieve.
If at any time you would like to be unsubscribed then another option is to simply send an email email@example.com requesting this and it will be updated on our system.
Ratings and Reviews
When you provide a rating or review on any of our platforms, you consent to us using that rating or review as we deem fit, including without limitation on the Website, in newsletters or other marketing material. If you do not agree to this, please do not put any ratings or reviews on the Website.
Data shelf life
All the information that we process has a shelf life that is available upon request.
This means that we "clean" our database on a regular basis by removing users who have not interacted with us over a certain period.
In this instance, the user will be unsubscribed however their support may still be stored securely on our system for historical purposes.
What are the rights of a data subject?
At any time you can request to access whatever data we have on you.
You can request it to be edited or deleted entirely.
Or you may withdraw your consent.
All your rights are protected in line with the requirements of the POPI Act.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
