This Policy includes the Company’s Data Protection and Security Policy.


CY-BOFFIN is committed to protecting your privacy. You can visit most pages on our site
without giving us any Information about yourself. But sometimes we do need Information to
provide services that you request, and this Privacy Statement explains data collection and
use in those situations. This Privacy Statement only applies to CY-BOFFIN; it does not apply
to other online or offline CY-BOFFIN sites, products or services. Please read the complete
CY-BOFFIN Privacy Statement.


This Privacy Policy Statement is subject to the PoPI Act and requires the implementation of
the Eight Conditions for the Lawful Protection of Personal Information in terms of the Act.


We will ask you when we need Information that personally identifies you (Personal
Information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this Information is requested when you
are registering before entering a contest, ordering e-mail newsletters, signing up for an
event or training, or when purchasing and/or registering for any of our products. Personal
Information collected by CY-BOFFIN often is limited to e-mail address, language, country or
location, but may include other Information when needed to provide a service you
requested. For example: If you choose a service or transaction that requires payment, such
as making a purchase in the Shop area of the Website, we will request Personal Information
necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as: name, address, telephone number, and credit
card number. When you buy and install a new product, we may ask you to register your
purchase electronically. We keep this registration Information on file with any Information
you’ve already given us on previous visits to our Website. CY-BOFFIN also collects certain
Information about your computer hardware and software. This Information may include:
your IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times and referring
Website addresses. This Information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain
quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of CY-BOFFIN Websites.
CY-BOFFIN also collects Information about which pages our customers visit within our Web.
This site visitation data is identified only by a unique ID number, and it is never linked with
Personal Information unless a user consents as described below.


We use your Personal Information for the following purposes:

  1. To ensure our site is relevant to your needs.
  2. To deliver services, such as newsletters, events, training or software, that you
    request or purchase.
  3. To help us create and publish content most relevant to you.
  4. To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated Information and other new
    services from CY-BOFFIN, if you so request.
  5. To allow you access to limited-entry areas of our site as appropriate.

We will merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic Information for research
purposes, and we may use this Information in aggregate to provide more relevant content.
In some limited-entry sections of CY-BOFFIN, with your approval, we will combine site-
visitation data with your Personal Information in order to provide you with personalised
content. If you decline permission, we will not provide you the personalised service and
won’t merge your Personal Information with site-visitation data. CY-BOFFIN Rights of Data

elements (such as links or graphics) on a CY-BOFFIN’s Web page. We do not use this
technology to access your personally identifiable Information on our sites; it is a tool we use
to compile aggregated statistics about CY-BOFFIN’s Website usage. We may share
aggregated site statistics with partner companies but do not allow other companies to place
clear gifs on our sites.

will be able to view the text on the screens, however you will not experience a personalised

“Opting-out” in a legal sense means the same as it does in an everyday sense. To “Opt-Out”
means you are choosing to no longer participate in something.

Opting out becomes significant in a legal sense when you develop a website or app that’s
legally required to provide a method of opting out to those who use your website or app.
Not all business models are required by law to provide an opt-out method for customers.

An Opt-Out Policy that lets customers know that they have the ability and right to opt out of
aspects of your website or app, as well as a clear and easy-to-follow method for actually
opting out, are required by law in certain circumstances.


CY-BOFFIN will occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the
“last updated” date at the top of the Privacy Policy. For material changes to this policy, CY-
BOFFIN will notify you by placing prominent notice on the Website.

CY-BOFFIN reserves the right to amend, alter and terminate this Policy at any time.
