International Fast Transport takes the privacy of all its users and customers very seriously, and takes great care with user and customer information. This Privacy Statement outlines how your personal information is treated and forms part of the Terms and Conditions of this site. We may occasionally modify our Privacy Statement, and when this happens, we will notify you via our homepage.
What information do we collect?
In order to provide our users and customers with a range of services, we may collect personal information from our websites, from e-mail responses, from written information sent to us and from other communications. We may for example, keep a record of your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number and preferences.
Unless you have voluntarily given us the information, or we have legally permitted reasons for processing it without your consent, we will always ask for your explicit consent if we need to process any data categorised as "sensitive" by the Data Protection Act, 1998.
Information defined under the Data protection Act, 1998 as "Sensitive Personal Data" is as follows:
Information as to the racial or ethnic origin of the data subject;
Their religious beliefs or other beliefs of a similar nature;
Their political opinions;
Whether they are a member of a Trade Union;
Their physical or mental health or condition;
Their sexual life;
The commission or alleged commission by them of any offence, or
Any proceedings for any offence committed or alleged to have been committed by them, the disposal of such proceedings or the sentence of any court in such proceedings.
How do we use your information?
Any personal data relating to you will be used and recorded by us in accordance with current data protection legislation and this Privacy Statement. We may use your personal information to communicate with you, for record keeping purposes, and in aggregate (and therefore anonymously) for market research purposes, to track activity on our web sites, to publish trends or to improve usefulness and content.
We would like to use the details you give us to inform you of products and services in which you might be interested.
We may also share your personal information with companies approved by us so that they may send you details of products and services in which you may be interested.
Because the Internet is an international medium, these companies may be both inside and outside the African Economic area.
We will endeavour to ensure there is adequate and appropriate protection for any personal data transferred outside the African Economic Area.
In the unlikely event that this website and the customer data relating to it are sold to another data controller, we will endeavour to ensure that your rights and freedoms in respect of the processing of your personal data are adequately and appropriately protected.
We reserve the right to pass on your personal information to any law enforcement agencies requesting it in connection with the commission of any offence, once we are reasonably satisfied as to the circumstances surrounding the request.
Our websites may contain links to other websites, and you should be aware that we are clearly not responsible for the privacy practices on other sites. We recommend that you individually check the privacy statements of each and every other website that you visit.
Surveys and User Groups
We always aim to improve the services we offer. As a result we occasionally canvass our customers using surveys. Participation in surveys is voluntary, and you are under no obligation to reply to any survey you might receive from us. Should you choose to do so, we will treat the information you provide with the same high standard of care as all other customer information.
From time to time, we ask customers whether they wish to participate in User Groups, often to assist us in the development of new features, services or sites. Participation in User Groups is voluntary, and you are under no obligation to join any User Group. Should you choose to join a User Group, however, we will treat the information you provide with the same high standard of care as all other customer information.
Your participation on our sites may mean that we occasionally contact you with the opportunity to enter competitions. Entry to competitions is voluntary, and you are under no obligation to take up an invitation from us to enter. Should you choose to enter a competition, we will treat the information you provide with the same high standard of care as all other customer information, and use the information provided strictly within the entry terms of the competition and this Privacy Statement.
