Web.Eng T/A The Website Engineer (Pty) Ltd. (“Web.Eng”) operates several websites including webeng.co. It is Web.Eng’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
For the sake of this policy, the covered entities to which it is applied are:
Our website — webeng.co
Demo website — demo.webeng.co
Migration websites — migrate1.webeng.co, migrate2.webeng.co, migrate3.webeng.co, migrate4.webeng.co
Staging websites — staging.webeng.co, staging.*
Like most website operators, Web.Eng collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Web.Eng’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Web.Eng’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Web.Eng may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website or service.
Web.Eng also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Email address, Personal website URL and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Web.Eng hosted blogs. Web.Eng only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
A detailed data collection transparency report on what data we collect, and how it is shared with third parties is regularly updated here https://www.webeng.co/legal/transparency-privacy-report/
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Web.Eng’s websites choose to interact with Web.Eng in ways that require Web.Eng to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Web.Eng gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Web.Eng — by purchasing access to the service — are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Web.Eng collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Web.Eng. Web.Eng does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Web.Eng may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Web.Eng may monitor the most popular sites on the service. Web.Eng may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Web.Eng does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Web.Eng discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Web.Eng’s behalf or to provide services available at Web.Eng’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Web.Eng’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Web.Eng will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Web.Eng discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Web.Eng believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Web.Eng, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Web.Eng website and have supplied your email address, Web.Eng may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what is going on with Web.Eng and our products. We primarily use our product blog (https://www.webeng.co/blog/) to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Web.Eng takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Web.Eng, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Web.Eng goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Web.Eng may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Onward Transfers and Data Sharing
