    2. Personal information will not be sold to third parties, nor provided to direct marketing companies or other such organisations without your permission. We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share such information, where required by law.
    We will retain your Data and Personal Information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Data or Personal Information to the extent necessary for research and to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.
    1. Your Data may be transferred to, and maintained on, servers or physical storage located inside of South Africa.
    2. Please note that we may transfer Data and Personal Information, to the locations of our third-party Data Processors' servers and it may be processed there. This will ordinarily be inside South Africa (for instance, Netcash). However, our Campaigns, which make use of a Sponsor’s email address, are distributed through a third party service provider named ‘MailChimp’, located in the U.S.A whose terms and conditions under which they may process Personal Information provide for the protection and integrity of the Personal Information.
    3. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such Personal Information represents your agreement to that transfer and that such transfer is necessary for the performance of the contract between us.

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Information will take place to a data processor unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your Data and other Personal Information.
    5. It is not reasonably possible for us to monitor the location from which a Sponsor or Data Subject may access their Personal Information provided by the Website. For instance, a Sponsor opens an email and views their receipt overseas. Should you, as a Data Subject of Sponsor access your Personal Information while not within South Africa, we make no representations as to the protection which may be offered to your Personal Information in that foreign country. In this scenario, Sponsor consents to the processing of your Personal Information, in a foreign country, or transferring it to a foreign country whose laws regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent than those in South Africa. We recognize that the transfer, when it happens, is necessary for the performance of the contract between us, or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken in response to your request.
    Legal requirements may require us to disclose your Data, however, this is done in good faith and with the belief that such action is necessary:
    1. To comply with a legal obligation;
    2. To protect and defend the rights or property of the JAMES 1:27 TRUST;
    3. To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Website;
    4. To protect the personal safety of users of Sponsors or the public; and
    5. To protect against legal liability.
    The security of your Data is important to us, but please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means and security practices to protect your Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We undertake to inform you if there is a breach of our Security protocols which may affect your Personal Information.
