What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
Unless you instruct us otherwise, we share advertisements with the aggregating website HiFiShark.com. It makes your advert visible to consumers throughout the world. You can opt out of this feature. One of the attractive aspects of hifishark.com is it notifies consumers of new posting (around the world) of items for which they are on the lookout.
We many also provide your advert information to second-hand goods shops in your area. If so, these shops may contact you and make an offer to buy your goods securely.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
As an advertiser of a product or service that you wish to sell, you recognise that you can do so only if an interested consumer is able to contact you. For this purpose, you consent to us publishing your telephone number and email address to consumers – either the broad public or registered users (or both). Similarly, if you wish to contact an advertiser, you consent to the advertiser having access to your personal information.
How to delete your account
You can send a user account deletion request to email@example.com.
AVHorn.co.za may not and does not share your personal information in any way – besides what we have disclosed here. AVHorn.co.za does not provide personal user information for any other purpose than to provide users an avenue for selling or buying AV equipment and services via the site at www.avhorn.co.za.
