This Privacy and Security Policy sets out the policy of Sambe Consulting (hereinafter “Sambe Consulting”) with regard to information that identifies the client and/or the client employees personally (known as ‘personal information', but for purposes of this policy we will call "Personal Data") and other client information that is accessed by Sambe Consulting during the course of providing the Services (hereinafter “Client Data”). Within this policy document, we will refer to Sambe Consulting as "we", "us" and/or "our".

Security
Due to the fact that Sambe Consulting is committed to ensuring that the privacy of their clients is protected, Sambe Consulting makes use of Microsoft Azure cloud services when storing any Personal Data and Client Data.
Sambe Consulting takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data and Client Data accessed in the course of providing the Services from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No Internet or e-mail transmission is, however, fully secure or error-free; any such transmission is accordingly at the client’s own risk. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data and Client Data to Sambe Consulting by email. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

By voluntarily providing us with access to Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in connection with the rendering of Services and in accordance with this Privacy and Security Policy.


Sambe Consulting is not in the business of selling your Personal Data. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties, as set out below:
Agents and Consultants: On occasion, Sambe Consulting engages other service providers to perform certain business-related functions. When this happens, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function and they are subject to the terms and conditions of this Privacy and Security Policy.


Legal Requirements: Sambe Consulting may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or if we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Sambe Consulting, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
POPI gives you the right to access Personal Data held about you and/or your employees.  Any access request may be subject to a small administrative fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.  You may also email us at support@sambepeople.co.za to request that we delete your Personal Data. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honour your request.
