Privacy Policy

This privacy policy relates to all ‘Pulse Africa’ (from here on Pulse) services: we are a new media publisher and platform for contributors in Africa that reaches a lot of people, so we are specifically conscious about this topic. Bear with us on this long text – it is for your benefit and is applicable to the different countries of operation. Let us know if you have any questions!

 

Pulse and its partnered license brands know that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy very seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy. By visiting our website, you are accepting the practices outlined in this Privacy Policy. It additionally covers our newsletter and other touch points with our platform – unless they are covered directly by privacy policies of third-party-providers.

 

This Privacy Policy covers Pulse’s treatment of personal information that Pulse gathers when you are on the Pulse website and when you use any Pulse services. This policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that Pulse does not own or control, or to individuals that Pulse does not employ or manage.

 

Information Collected by Pulse

We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our website. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience. We do not process this information in a way that is incompatible with this objective. We collect the following types of information from our Pulse users:

1. Information You Provide to Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of special features.

2. Automatic Information:

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Pulse and its authorized agents automatically receive and record certain traffic data on their server logs from your browser including your IP address, Pulse cookie information, and the page you requested. Pulse uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website.

Pulse may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that page has been viewed.

Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While Pulse will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.

Pulse is very concerned about your privacy and we will never provide your email address to a third party without your explicit permission, as detailed in the Sharing Your Information section below. Pulse may send out e-mails with Pulse -related news, products, offers, surveys or promotions.

 

Cookies

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website are visited and by how many people. Pulse cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or e-mail address is.

 

The Help portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies.

Pulse’s advertising partners may place a cookie on your browser that make it possible to collect anonymous non-personally identifiable information that ad delivery systems use to present more relevant ads. 

 

Sharing Your Information

Pulse’s Personnel: Pulse’s personnel and authorized consultants and/or contractors may have access to user information if necessary in the normal course of Pulse’s business.

 

Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Pulse’s, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred.

 

Protection of Pulse and Others: We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with a law; to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other policies; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Pulse, our employees, our users, or others.
