The right to privacy and this privacy “Policy” is important to us. Quarphix Proprietary Limited trading as “Quarphix” (“Quarphix”, “us” or “we”) is committed to taking steps to protect your privacy when we process your personal information. We, therefore, implement business practices that comply with applicable data protection laws, including the Protection of Personal Information Act 4 of 2013 (“POPIA”)This Policy applies to all processing of personal information by us.

Where we refer to “Personal Information” in this Policy, we mean personal information as defined in POPIA, being information that may be used to identify you directly or indirectly. Personal Information includes, for example, your name, surname, email address, identity number (or company registration number), contact details, photograph, professional information, and location.

In this Policy, we explain how we will use and protect your Personal Information in compliance with POPIA. “You” means any natural or legal person whose Personal Information we process. Additional terms will also apply to our relationship when you register to use the Quarphix website and any of our digital communications media tools (referred to as the “Platform” in this Policy) by creating an account (and becoming a “User”) and accepting the terms and conditions applicable to each type of User (the “User Terms”). The terms of this Policy will prevail if there is any conflict between this Policy and the User Terms that apply to you. There may be elements of this Policy that do not apply to you depending on the type of User you are registered as, Users being ‘Quarnedes’, ‘contractors’, ‘learners’ and other third parties that use the Platform. We may change the terms of this Policy and will always process Personal Information in accordance with the latest version.

In terms of POPIA, Quarphix processes information in two capacities: when we process Personal Information of our customers (Users) to manage our relationship and offer our services, we are the responsible party; and when we process Personal Information provided by Users for us to perform the services and for the agreed reporting to third parties, we are the operator. When we act as an operator, we act on the instructions of the User or the third party (as may be regulated in the User Terms that we have entered with you, such as on the instruction of a third party), who will be the responsible party in respect of the Personal Information that we have been instructed us to process to render our services. We also process certain Personal Information as a responsible party when someone visits our Platform (even if they are not a User). Parts of this Policy will apply to you if you are a User or before you become a User.
