Afi Systems E-Privacy Policy

The Afi Systems website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how visitors use our site. Google Analytics uses first-party "cookies", which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous format. These cookies are used to store non-personally identifiable information, such as what time your visit occurred, whether you have been to the site before, and what site referred you (if any) to our web page.

The term anonymous means no personally identifiable data is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on this website such as our contacts page. If Afi Systems need any personal data from you - for example your email address to register for a newsletter or book a repair, or to add feedback or a comment – Afi Systems will ask for it and you will have the option to either provide it (therefore giving your consent) or not.

The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics cookies about your use of the Afi Systems website, as well as your IP address, is transmitted to Google.

We use these reports to evaluate collective visitor usage so that we can optimise our content, its marketing and to fulfil our visitors needs. We feel that the collection of this anonymous data is essential for us to operate this website as a free to use service, and to offer our clients and visitors the best experience now and in the future.

We also use a Google Maps link on our contacts page to help you locate our offices. Google Maps also uses cookies to give you location relevant data. This helps google to give you optimised information based on your location, and can work in conjunction with Google Plus accounts to give you the best experience.

Afi Systems will never link any IP addresses with the identity of a computer user. Afi Systems will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifiable information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form or when it is required for online purchases.

This is our personal commitment to you as a valued visitor, client or potential client. For more information, see my our terms and conditions page for the use of this website, a link can be found at the bottom of this page.
