Privacy Policy

Marketplaceafrica.co.za knows that you care how information about you is
used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and
sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting Marketplaceafrica.co.za,
you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

1. What Personal Information About Customers Does Marketplaceafrica.co.za
Gather?

The information we
learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping
experience at Marketplaceafrica.co.za. Here are the types of information we
gather.

INFORMATION YOU GIVE
US

We receive and
store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way.
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, customizing future
shopping for you, improving our store, and communicating with you.

AUTOMATIC INFORMATION

We receive and
store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example,
like many Web sites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of
information when your Web browser accesses Marketplaceafrica.co.za.

E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS

To help us make
e-mails more useful and interesting, we might receive a confirmation when you
open e-mail from Marketplaceafrica.co.za if your computer supports such
capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other
companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.
If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your
Email Preferences or unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom
of any MarketPlace Africa e-mail.

INFORMATION FROM
OTHER SOURCES

We might receive
information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.

2. 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 recognize your browser and to provide
features such as storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.

The Help portion of
the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from
accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a
new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable
or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by
changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer.
However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of Marketplaceafrica.co.za’s
essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance,
if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to complete
a purchase in our store.

3. Does Marketplaceafrica.co.za Share the Information It Receives?

Information about
our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the
business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as
described.

AFFILIATED BUSINESSES
WE DO NOT CONTROL

We work closely
with our affiliated businesses. In some cases, these businesses might sell
offerings to you directly through Marketplaceafrica.co.za. In other cases, we
might sell product lines jointly with these businesses. You can tell when a
third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information
related to those transactions with that third party.

THIRD-PARTY SERVICE
PROVIDERS

We employ other
companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include
fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail,
removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing 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.

BUSINESS TRANSFERS

As we continue to
develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business
units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the
transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any
pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents
otherwise).

PROTECTION OF MARKETPLACEAFRICA.CO.ZA
AND OTHERS

We release account
and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply
with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or
protect the rights, property, or safety of Marketplaceafrica.co.za, our users,
or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and
organizations 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
violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

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.

4. How Secure Is Information About Me?

We work to protect
the security of your information during order transmission by using Secure
Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts order information you transmit.

We reveal only the
last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of
course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit
card company during order processing.

It is important for
you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your
computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

5. What about Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Web Sites?

Our site might
include third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. We do not provide
any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or
third-party Web sites.

These third-party
Web sites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their
behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or “serve”) the
advertisements that appear on our Web site directly to your browser. They
automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use
cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel
gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to
personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over
cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of
these advertisers and third-party Web sites are not covered by this Privacy
Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy
practices. In addition, the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful
information about Internet advertising companies (also called “ad
networks” or “network advertisers”), including information about
how to opt-out of their information collection.

Marketplaceafrica.co.za
might also display targeted advertising based on personal information about
users. Although Marketplaceafrica.co.za does not provide any personal
information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may
assume that users who interact with or click on a targeted advertisement meet
the targeting criteria used to display the ad (for example, users in the
northwestern United States who like designer jeans).

6. Which Information Can I Access?

Marketplaceafrica.co.za
gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your
interactions with Marketplaceafrica.co.za for the limited purpose of viewing
and, in certain cases, updating that information.

7. What Choices Do I Have?

As discussed above,
you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be
needed to make a purchase.

You can add or
update certain information on pages such as those referenced in the “Which
Information Can I Access?” section above. When you update information, we
usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.

If you do not want
to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Email Preferences
or unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any MarketPlace
Africa’s e-mail.

The Help portion of
the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from
accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a
new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable
or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by
changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer.
However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of Marketplaceafrica.co.za’s
essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance,
if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you may not be able to complete a
purchase in our store.

8. Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions

If you choose to
visit Marketplaceafrica.co.za, your visit and any dispute over privacy is
subject to this Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on
damages, disputes, and choice of law. If you have any concern about privacy at Marketplaceafrica.co.za,
please email admin@marketplaceafrica.co.za with a thorough
description, and we will try to resolve it.

Our business
changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice and the Conditions of Use 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 Web site frequently to
see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice 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.

9. Examples of Information Collected

you have used more than one e-mail address when shopping with us); communicate

known as Flash Local Shared Objects), or similar data on certain parts of our
Web site for fraud prevention and other purposes. During some visits we may use
software tools such as JavaScript to measure and collect session information,
including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain
pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs),
