HiFlyKites.co.za Online Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of the users of our sites.

This privacy policy will advise you about how we protect your personal information, and about what choices you have concerning our use of such information. Please read this policy carefully. We may need to change this policy from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our sites. We will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose that information to anyone. Please refer back to this policy regularly. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, please send us an E-mail - click here.

Scope Of Privacy Policy


This policy applies to your use of all of the sites and services owned or operated by Hi Fly Kites, and affiliated companies (collectively "Hi Fly Kites" or "we," "us," or "our"), including hiflykites.co.za and any other site that we may own or operate currently or in the future (collectively, the "Hi Fly Kites Sites"). Unless we say otherwise, all references to the Hi Fly Kites Sites in this policy include all such sites. This policy does not apply to your use of unaffiliated sites to which any of the Hi Fly Kites Sites only links.

Personal Identification Information

We will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user (such as, for example, your full name, street address, telephone number, credit card number or E-mail address) to any third party without having received your permission. We may request personal identification information from you in connection with your use of, or participation in, our contests, surveys, forums, subscription registrations, content submissions, requests for suggestions, visitors' requests for free products or services or additional information, and in connection with other activities, services or resources we make available on any of our sites. In all of these cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. If you do provide us with personal information, we may use it to conduct the activities described above. If you identify yourself to us by sending us an E-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments. We may file your comments for future reference, or we may discard the information after we have reviewed it. We may also contact you to confirm your registration and about your account status, and regarding changes to the Hi Fly Kites Sites' Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy. If you give us your permission, we may also use personal identification information for internal or external marketing and promotional purposes. On occasion, for example, we may send you E-mails to introduce a product or service that we think might be of interest to the users of our sites. For us to obtain your permission to send you this information, we will give you an opportunity to "opt-in" at the time our request for your personal information is made. If you do "opt-in," you may choose to "opt-out" at any time, even after you have provided personal information, by following the procedures set forth at the end of Security Policy. Please note, however, that under certain circumstances, if you initially do not choose to "opt-in," or if you later "opt-out," you may not be eligible for certain benefits for which a name, E-mail address, telephone number or other personal identification information is needed. We have the following exceptions to these policies: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the Hi Fly Kites Sites, or a physical threat to you or others. Please note that if you give out personal information online - for example, through advertising on Hi Fly Kites Sites - that information can be collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users' privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you submit in advertisements. You disclose such information at your own risk.

Privacy of Children

Hi Fly Kites understands that young people need special safeguards and privacy protection. We realize that they may not understand all the provisions of our policy or be able to make thoughtful decisions about the choices that are made available to our adult users. We urge all parents to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online. The Hi Fly Kites Sites are not directed to children under the age of 14. Hi Fly Kites knowingly will not collect personally identifiable information from children under 14. Note to Parents. If you have any concerns about the Hi Fly Kites Sites or their related services, please email us - click here.

Non-Personal Identification Information And The Use Of Cookie Technology

We collect non-personal identification information through the use of "cookie" technology and/or IP address tracking. Non-personal identification information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, the operating systems, the Internet service providers and other similar information. Our system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on our sites and about the links you may select from within our site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online. We use such information in the aggregate to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on our sites. This way we know which areas of our sites are favourites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our sites. We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners, suppliers and other third parties, but we will not share any individual names, personal navigational or other personal information.

Some of our advertisers may display ads on our sites which solicit or contain technology to collect information about our users for the advertisers, but we will not permit such advertisers to collect any personal information from our users within our sites. Most browsers are set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent.

Links To Other Sites

Users will find advertising or other contents on our sites that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. In many cases, the links represent cooperative projects or are mutual links established with persons or entities connected with our sites. Although we initially visit the sites or services that are so linked, we do not control the contents or links that appear on these sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.

Your Acceptance of Privacy Policy

By using any of the Hi Fly Kites Sites, you signify your acceptance of our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our sites. Your continued use of the Hi Fly Kites Sites following the posting of changes to these terms will mean that you accept those changes.
