Privacy Policy

In short: this site doesnt collect any personal data, but other sites it links to may.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. It is Photonwind’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across this website.

This website privacy policy is for information only, and does not create obligations, implied or otherwise, for visitors to the website ("Website Users").The Administrator of personal data collected via Photonwind.co.za is William Ruhlig (hereafter referred to as the "Administrator"). Contactable via the twitter handle (@photonwind) or electronic mail to contact at Photonwind.co.za.

We will only ask for personal information when it is truly needed to provide a service to you. Any information collected is by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used.

Measuring visitors

Photonwind measures visitors using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view, how you arrived here and some basic information about your browser and an anonymised version of your IP address to get generalised location data (your country or maybe city). All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from Analytics is used as a legitimate interest in understanding what users are interested in, how people arrive at the site and so on. Like most websites, this information is used to make the website better. We do not use the user id function of Google Analytics. So no personal information is collected.


Final provisions

Photonwind.co.za may contain external links to other websites. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Photonwind.co.za of the linked site. Use of any such linked website is at the Website User’s own risk. Website Users are encouraged to become familiar with the privacy policies in effect on these websites; this privacy policy applies exclusively to Photonwind.co.za and is not transferable.

The Administrator takes advantage of technical and organizational means which ensure protection of the processed personal data appropriate to the threats and categories of protected data, especially he secures data against their disclosure to unauthorized persons, take-over by an unauthorized person, processing in violation of currently applicable regulations, as well as change, loss, damage or destruction.

The Administrator correspondingly uses technical preventive measures against the acquisition and modification of electronically transmitted data: security of the data based against unauthorized access. Access to the Account is only with individual login and password.

This policy is effective as of 2 April 2020.
