other personal information which you give us in connection with the Services.

Wherever THANAS collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.

If, as a user of the site, you have booked a Vendor or dealership to provide services for you or have placed an order for a product, we will provide your contact details to the relevant vendor or dealership in order to enable them to contact you if necessary (for example, if the product is delayed, or the service booked needs

to be postponed).

Services and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Non-Identifiable Data

When you interact with THANAS through the Services, we receive and store certain information which does not identify you personally (referred to as de-identified information in South Africa). Such information is

It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in

this process.

with certain third parties, as set out below.

Vendors and dealerships of vendors

We will share your Personal Data with the registered vendors and their listed dealerships as necessary for

them to provide their listed services to you, or deliver a product that is fulfilled by them.

Related Companies

We may also share your Personal Data with the THANAS Related Companies if we need to do so to fulfil this

Privacy Policy.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties

THANAS, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function and under the same standards and protections as in this

privacy policy.

Legal Requirements

THANAS may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of THANAS, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the

public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

Aggregated Personal Data

In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, THANAS conducts research on its user demographics, interests and behaviour based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us.

THANAS may also disclose aggregated user statistics to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes in fulfilment of this

privacy policy.

In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please

contact us as indicated below.

We do not disclose personal information about identifiable individuals to advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate and/or anonymised information about our users to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target.

We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on

their privacy policies.

Customer details will be stored by THANAS separately from card details, when and if card details are to be

stored.

Security

Dispute Resolution

INFORMAL NEGOTIATIONS. To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement ("Dispute"), you and the Company agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice, as set

forth above.

Save for urgent or interim relief which may be granted by a competent court, in the event of any dispute of any nature whatsoever arising between you and THANAS on any matter provided for in, or arising out of these T&C, and not resolved through the Customer Relations Department of THANAS, then such a dispute shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in terms of the expedited rules of the Arbitration Foundation of South Africa. The expedited arbitration rules may be downloaded from http://www.arbitration.co.za/downloads/

WAIVER OF RIGHT TO BE A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. You and the Company agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between the Company and you individually. You acknowledge and agree that you and the company are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and the Company otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph

is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" Section will be deemed null and void.

Assignment

This Agreement may not be assigned by you without the prior written approval of the Company but may be assigned without your consent by the Company to (i) a parent or subsidiary, (ii) an acquirer of assets, or (

iii) any other successor or acquirer. Any purported assignment in violation of this section shall be void.

If any provision of the Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent under law. The failure of the Company to enforce any right or provision in this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by the Company in writing. This Agreement comprises the entire agreement between you and the Company and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements, whether written

or oral, between you and the Company regarding the subject matter contained herein.
