Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our website (www.patherandpather.co.za).

The information we collect

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. – unless you choose to fill out a ‘Contact Us’ form found on many of the pages of the site or to email us directly.

We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site – such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and your service provider’s IP address.

How we normally use information about you

We use non-personally identifiable information to analyse site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site.

In the ordinary course, we use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry or process an application form you have completed on various sections of our website.

Any data gathered will be shared, if appropriate, with any of the offices of Pather & Pather and any third parties who provide services on our behalf.

We will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside Pather & Pather, except where we are required to share your information with any third parties who provide services on our behalf.

If you are interested in applying for a job at Pather & Pather and choose to submit resume information by email, we will use it only for the internal application review process. We will not voluntarily share, rent or sell it outside Pather & Pather, except where we are required to share your information with any third parties who provide services on our behalf.

However, it is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency’s request.

Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.

Collection of information by third-party sites and sponsors

Our site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites’ privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

Pather & Pather may post information about programmes and events that are sponsored by or co-sponsored other firms or organisations. Should you choose to register electronically for any of these events, Pather & Pather will have no control over the third-party sponsors’ use of this information. As for our own use of your registration information, that will be handled by us as if you had registered by telephone or on paper. In other words, the privacy policies applicable to our website will not apply.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site and services.

We may use cookies in the following ways:

  • Where they are essential to make our site work
  • To enable the personalisation features on our site (which give you the ability to recall recently viewed pages and see information which you have input on line)
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our site and to help us improve the structure of our site. We cannot identify you personally in this way.

Disabling/enabling cookies: You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser.

Our commitment to security

We employ security measures to prevent unauthorised access to information that we collect online. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
