3.1. Like most Websites, DSPS collects Non-Personally Identifiable Information (Non-PII) of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring Website, and the date and time of each visitor request.
3.2. DSPS' purpose in collecting Non-PII is to understand better how DSPS' visitors use DSPS' Website. From time to time, DSPS may release Non-PII in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Website.
4.1. Where you submit PII via the Website, the following principles are observed in the handling of that Information:
4.1.1 DSPS will only collect PII for a purpose consistent with the purpose for which it is required. The specific purpose for which information is collected will be apparent from the context in which it is requested.
4.1.2 DSPS will only process PII in a manner that is adequate, relevant and not excessive in the context of the purpose for which it is processed.
4.1.3 PII will only be processed for a purpose compatible with that for which it was collected unless you have consented to alternative use in writing, DSPS is permitted by POPI or in terms of national legislation of general application.
4.1.4 DSPS will not disclose any PII relating to you to any third party unless your prior written agreement is obtained or DSPS is required to do so by law.

4.3.4 Other than to employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, PII is only disclosed in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental requests.

4.5. DSPS takes all reasonable measures necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially PII.
