At Africa Pageant Online we take the Protection of Personal Information seriously and we recognize that Privacy is important to you.

Personal Information includes the prescribed information falling within the definitions of Personal or Special Personal Information as set out in the Protection of Personal Information Act, 2013 ("Protected Personal Information"). Africa Pageant Online collects, with your consent, personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Africa Pageant Online also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postal or ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, and interests. We will not intentionally or knowingly collect Personal Information directly from minors (anyone under the age of 18). The Personal Information of minors will be collected through their legal guardian or parent only where products or services are obtained for the minors.
Use of Personal Information
Africa Pageant Online will use your Personal Information to operate the Sites, provide services, and to inform you of new features, services, and products. Africa Pageant Online will also use your Personal Information for research, statistical and marketing purposes, and where applicable to update its customer records
Personal Information sharing and data transfers
We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to give effect to a contract with you, or where we have a legitimate interest in doing so. These are some of the instances where we may share your Personal Information with third parties, who may include;
- to any person that provides services (which services may include verifying, updating and processing Personal Information) to Africa Pageant Online or acts as Africa Pageant Online’s agent or to whom Africa Pageant Online have transferred or propose to transfer any of its rights and duties in respect of its customers (some of these persons may be located outside of the Africa), and share Africa Pageant Online customers’ Personal Information with Africa Pageant Online’s service providers, locally and outside Kenya, as necessary. Africa Pageant Online may ask persons who provide services to Africa Pageant Online to agree to our Privacy practices and related policies if they need to access any Personal Information to carry out their services;
- to Africa Pageant Online’s legal advisors, financial advisors, auditors, regulatory authorities or in response to a legal proceedings or to a competent court; and
- to Africa Pageant Online subsidiaries.
We will not share your Personal Information to external organisations that are not our service providers, unless business operations require the processing of your personal information in other countries, either to carry out processing based on your instructions or for ordinary business purposes.
Should we wish to store your information with a third party, who is located outside of Kenya and receives the Personal Information, they will need to comply to either a law, or binding agreement which states that they will provide an adequate level of protection to your Personal Information. This means that they have to agree to lawfully process your Personal Information and protect your Personal Information in the same manner as we do.
Retention of Personal Information
Africa Pageant Online will not keep your Personal Information beyond the period strictly necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, and in accordance with the Applicable Legislation. Africa Pageant Online undertakes, where possible, to anonymise or delete your Personal Information as soon as the purpose and/or the duration of their established retention expire. Nevertheless, Personal Information may be archived beyond the applicable periods for the purposes of researching, investigating, and prosecuting criminal offenses with the sole purpose of allowing, as needed, the provision of such Personal Information to the judicial authorities, or for other retention obligations, in particular for accounting or fiscal purposes. Archiving implies that this Personal Information will be subject to access restrictions and will no longer be available online but will be retrieved and kept on a secure and independent device.
We take Protection of Personal Information seriously and we take precautions to keep your Personal Information secure. Therefore, with due regard to generally accepted information security and handling practices and procedures we seek to secure the integrity and confidentiality of Personal Information in our possession by taking appropriate, reasonable technical and organisational measures to prevent loss of, damage to or unauthorised destruction of Personal Information; and unlawful access to or processing of Personal Information. However, as the website is accessible via the internet, and the internet is inherently insecure, we cannot guarantee the security of information you send to us online (including that it will not be intercepted). You send information to us online at your own risk.
You have the right and responsibility to ensure that the Personal Information we hold about you is accurate. In the absence of evidence to the contrary, we will assume that the information you provided to us is accurate.
