Privacy Policy and Notice

This is the privacy statement of The ReviewA. In this document, “we” or “us” refer to The ReviewA.

The ReviewA is a trade name of The ReviewA, a Limited Corporate Private Company shares with Company number 159553 whose registered office is at Vivea Business Park, Level 1 Lighthouse Moka, Mauritius.

This is a statement to explain our policy about all the information that we record about you. It covers both information that could identify you and information that could not.

We are extremely mindful about protecting your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of our Website are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any unintended purpose and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party. Our policy is both specific and strict. It complies with the laws of all jurisdictions of which we are aware. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, please do tell us.

We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our Website immediately.

Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.

Here is a list of the information we collect from you, either through our Website or because you give it to our clients and agreed to this in some way or another, but not limited to, use the information to obtain market trends, review details, customer experience, for the purpose of comparative performance measuring within the market.

1.            Business and personal information

This includes basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details and also includes all information given to us in the course of your business and ours, such as information you give us in your capacity as our client. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. It is not used for any other purpose. We expect you to reciprocate this policy.

Information which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service.

We keep information, which forms part of our business record for a minimum of five years. That is because we may need it in some way to support a claim or defence in court. That is also the period within which our tax collecting authorities may demand to know it.

2.            Market place information

When we obtain information from you specifically to enable you to rate or buy a service offered on or through our Website by some other person, we assume that in giving us your information, you are also giving us permission to pass it to the relevant person.

3.            Your domain name and e-mail address

This information is recognised by our servers and the pages that you visit are recorded. We shall not under any circumstances, divulge your e-mail address to any person who is not an employee or contractor of ours and who does not need to know, either generally or specifically. This information is used:

  1. to correspond with you or deal with you as you expect;
  2. in a collective way not referable to any particular individual, for the purpose of quality control and improvement of our site;
  3. to send you news about the services to which you have signed up;
  4. to tell you about other of our services or services of sister web sites.

4.            Information you post on our Website

Information you send to us by posting to a forum or blog or in your advertisement, is stored on our servers. We do not specifically use that information except to allow it to be read, but you will see in our terms & conditions (terms of service) that we reserve a right to use it in any way we decide.

5.            Website usage information

We may use software embedded in our Website (such as JavaScript) to collect information about pages you view and how you have reached them, what you do when you visit a page, the length of time you remain on the page, and how we perform in providing content to you. We do not presently associate such information with an identifiable person. Any sensitive comments or remarks will be used with care and scrutinised before it is published.

6.            Third party advertising

Third parties may advertise on our web site. In doing so, those parties, their agents or other companies working for them may use technology that automatically collects your IP address when they send an advertisement that appears on our site to your browser. They may also use other technology such as cookies or JavaScript to personalise the content of, and to measure the performance of their adverts. We do not have control over these technologies or the data that these parties obtain. Accordingly, this privacy notice does not cover the information practices of these third parties.

7.            Third party content

Our Website is a publishing medium in that anyone may register and then publish information about himself or some other person or organisation. We moderate and control what is posted. If you complain about any of the content on our Website, we shall investigate your complaint. If we feel, it may be justified, we shall remove it while we investigate. Free speech is a fundamental right, so we have to make a judgment as to whose right will be obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the content which offends you. If we think, your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you about it.

8.            Information we obtain from third parties

Although we do not disclose your personal information to any third party (except as set out in this notice), we do receive data which is indirectly made up from your personal information, from software services such as Google Analytics and others. No such information is identifiable to you. If information is obtained through third part review sites, it will be made available to our client and any personal information will not be published.

9.            Content you provide to us with a view to be used by third party

If you provide information to us with a view to it being read, copied, downloaded or used by other people, we accept no responsibility for what that third party may do with it. It is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might see your information. If it is available to all the World, you have no control whatever as to how it is used.
