SINCE Computers thanks you for visiting this web site.
This statement explains the efforts to balance our business interests in collecting and using the information we receive from you with your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information that you share with us.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, phone
number, e-mail address or any other information which might reasonably
be used to identify you individually. SINCE Computers collects personally
identifiable information from you only when you voluntarily provide such
information. SINCE Computers will not otherwise collect personally identifying
information from you via our web site.
At some parts of our web site, you may have the opportunity to provide us with personally identifying information. We notify you at the time of the particular uses which we intend to make of that information. Where you submit an enquiry or a complaint, we will use that information to respond to your particular enquiry or complaint and may also use such information for internal corporate purposes such as monitoring and improving customer service or aspects of the web site.
Generally, SINCE Computers uses personally identifiable information for reasonable business purposes, just as non-Internet businesses do. For example, we may use this information to contact you, via e-mail or regular mail, to provide you with information we believe may be of interest. Personally identifiable information may also be used in aggregate form to understand and serve our customers' needs and to evaluate the use and utility of the services we provide on-line.
Your information may be transferred for processing and use to SINCE
Computers facilities in other countries and regions of the world. Personally
identifiable information will not be sold, rented or exchanged outside
of SINCE Computers unless we first obtain your consent to such transfer.
Otherwise we will not disclose personal information unless: (a) required to do so by law, regulation or an industry code of practice; (b) for safety reasons; or (c) where we reasonably believe that you are in breach of our Web Site Usage Terms or are engaged in illegal activities.
SINCE Computers may collect information from you by your use of the web
site which is not personally identifiable. For example, we might track
information about the date and time you access our site, the type of web
browser you use, and the web site from which you connected to our site.
Our web sites collect this information by depositing "cookies" in your computer. This technology does not collect information which personally identifies you. Rather, this information is collected in an aggregate form.
The cookies can tell us how and when pages in a web site were visited and by how many people. This aggregate information enables us to improve our web sites to serve and inform you better. It also may allow you to shortcut access to points of interest on our web site when you reenter our system. Attaching this device to your system has no effect on how it performs.
You may set your computer so that cookies are not placed on your system.
For information on how to set your computer so as not to receive cookies, please contact your browser provider.
Disabling cookies may result in some reduction in the functionality and ease of use of this site.
Correcting or removing the information we hold
If you wish to stop receiving any e-mails or other consumer communications
from SINCE Computers, please notify us via the Contact
Us Form on this site.
Your wishes in these matters will be honoured.
If you would like us to remove any personally identifying information which we hold about you, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify such information, to the greatest extent technical practicable and within the limits of our accounting and legal responsibilities.

SINCE Computers will make every effort to maintain the accuracy and currency
of any personal information you supply to us.

You may ask us at any time to provide you with a list of the information, which we hold about you, and copies of that information. We will provide you with that information within 40 days of receiving your request.
All information transmitted to this web site is secure to the extent
possible using existing technology.
Unauthorised third parties should not be able to access it during transmission. We will store the information that you share with us securely and will take appropriate steps to protect it from unauthorised access or disclosure.
While no security steps can offer 100 percent protection, we utilise state-of-the-art technology and systems to prevent unauthorised access to the information we hold.
We will limit access to this information to those SINCE Computers personnel with a need to know.
We educate our staff about their duty to protect your privacy, and provide training regarding the policy described herein.
SINCE Computers does not intentionally collect or retain personally identifiable information about children who are younger than 13 years of age. If your child may have submitted information to us without indicating their actual age, and you would like it removed, please advise us through the Contact Us Form on this site, and we will delete it immediately.
