Personal Information Collection

Gauteng News Hub is committed to protecting your privacy. We collect personal information from users only when it is voluntarily provided to us, and we ensure that it is used solely for the purpose for which it was provided. This includes your name, email address, and other contact information that may be provided when you subscribe to our newsletter, comment on articles, or contact us directly. We ensure that this information is kept secure and confidential, and it is not shared with third parties without your explicit consent.

The types of personal information collected may include, but are not limited to, names, email addresses, contact numbers, and demographic information. We innovate continually to enhance our services. We may also collect non-personal information such as browser type, operating system, and the pages visited to help us improve our website's performance and enhance user experience.

Use of Collected Data

Personal information collected is used for various purposes, including keeping you updated with the latest news, responding to your inquiries, personalizing your experience on our site, improving our website, and providing you with targeted advertisements. We may use this information to communicate with you about services, promotions, and updates that may interest you.

We promise that your personal information will not be shared, sold, rented, or disclosed other than as described in this Privacy Policy unless we have your explicit consent or are required by law. It is important for us to keep your information accurate and up-to-date. If you wish to correct or remove any information you have provided, please contact us at [email protected].

Security of Your Information

We take the security of your personal information seriously and implement various measures to protect it. This includes technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to secure the data we collect against loss, unauthorized access, misuse, alteration, and destruction. We regularly review our security practices to ensure the protection of your privacy.

While we strive to protect your personal information, please note that no method of transmission over the internet is fully secure. We cannot guarantee absolute security, and thus, sharing your information is done at your own risk. We encourage you to take all appropriate measures to protect your personal information when using our services and the internet.

Children's Privacy
