    18. This Website may make use of “cookies” to automatically collect information and data through the standard operation of the internet servers. “Cookies” are small text files a website can use (and which we may use) to recognise repeat users, facilitate the user’s on-going access to and use of a website and allow a website to track usage behaviour and compile aggregate data that will allow the website operator to improve the functionality of the website and its content, and to display more focused advertising to a user by way of third party tools. The type of information collected by cookies is not used to personally identify the User. If the User does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the User to deny or accept the cookie feature. Please note that cookies may be necessary to provide the User with certain features available on the Website, and thus if the User disables the cookies (s)he may not be able to use those features, and his/her access to the Website will therefore be limited. If the User does not disable “cookies”, (s)he is deemed to consent to Netsurit’s use of any Personal Information (and other information) collected using those cookies, subject to the provisions of these Terms and the Website’s other Policies.
    19. The User is entitled to request access to any relevant Personal Information held by Netsurit.
    20. This privacy policy and our operations are all interpreted, applied and/or are in accordance with, the privacy and data protection laws of the Republic of South Africa. Should you be a citizen of a territory other than the Republic of South Africa with the result that additional privacy laws apply to the Processing of your Personal Information, please contact us so that we may gladly assist you in manifesting those rights, and ensuring that you are fully protected as required. You can contact us at 011 482 7380 or for any such assistance.
