A cookie is generally a tiny data file that resides on your computer, mobile phone, or other
device, and allows MTN to recognise you as a user when you return to the MTN online store
website using the same computer and web browser.
There are different types of cookies. Here are two examples.
A “persistent” cookie – this cookie is set once you’ve logged on to a website. The next time
you visit the website, the persistent cookie will allow the website to recognise you as an
existing user or registered user so you will not need to log in before using the services.
However if you wish to access or change any of your payment information (like a credit
card number) or your registered information, you must log in securely again with your
password, even if your computer contains a persistent cookie.
A “session” cookie – this cookie is used to identify a particular visit to a website. Session
cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.
You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases
doing so may impact your ability to use the website.
MTN may have to share your personal identifiable information with other companies or entities (third parties) with which we have a business relationship in order to provide the service you have requested. These third parties do not have the right to use the personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to deliver your requested service.
MTN does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from the registration process. Information will be gathered on a voluntary basis.
MTN shall not transfer personally identifiable information on individual users to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. At such points of collection, the user will have the opportunity to indicate whether he/she would prefer not to receive promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings from MTN and/or any third parties.
Further, notwithstanding any such preference not to receive promotional information by the user, MTN reserves the right to contact the user regarding account status, changes to the terms and conditions and other matters relevant to the underlying Services and/or the information collected.
MTN further reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the Site and the Services and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners if applicable. We may disclose your information to other companies in the MTN Group of companies, including their respective partners, agents and sub-contractors, for any of the above purposes. In addition, we may disclose your information where we are legally obliged to do so in terms of the laws of the Republic of South Africa.
