PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy is most important to us

Your privacy is important to Next Mobile Solutions (Pty) Limited (DBA: NextLaw Africa), so we’ve developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your personal information. In addition to this Privacy Policy, we provide data and privacy information embedded in our products for certain features that ask to use your personal information.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.

You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with NextLaw Africa or its affiliated company. NextLaw Africa and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

Here are some examples of the types of personal information Apple may collect and how we may use it:

What personal information we collect
  • When you Register, we may collect a variety of information, including your full name,, phone number, email address, and location information, except for your credit card information, which resides with our Payment Gateway Provider.
  • In certain jurisdictions, we may ask for a government issued ID in limited circumstances including when setting up other types of account and activating your device, for the purpose of extending commercial credit, managing reservations, or as required by law.
How we use your personal information
We may process your personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy with your consent, for compliance with a legal obligation to which NextLaw Africa is subject or when we have assessed it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by NextLaw or a third party to whom it may be necessary to disclose information.
  • The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on NextLaw’s latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events.
  • We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes. We may also use your personal information for account and network security purposes, including in order to protect our services for the benefit of all our users. Where we use your information for anti-fraud purposes it arises from the conduct of an online transaction with us. We limit our uses of data for anti-fraud purposes to those which are strictly necessary and within our assessed legitimate interests to protect our customers and our services. For certain online transactions we may also validate the information provided by you with publicly accessible sources.
  • From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with NextLaw Africa, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
  • We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve NextLaw’s products, services, and customer communications.
Source of your personal information where they are not collected from you
  • For research and development purposes, we may use datasets such as those that contain images, or other data that could be associated with various legal bodies and associations. When acquiring such datasets, we do so in accordance with applicable law in the jurisdiction in which the dataset is hosted. When using such datasets for research and development, we do not attempt to re-identify individuals who may appear therein.
  • We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
  • With your implied consent, we may collect data about how you use your device and applications in order to help app developers improve their apps.

Cookies and Other Technologies

NextLaw’s websites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non‑personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

NextLaw’s weekly Newsletter, “Summary of SA Judgments”, may also appear in NextLaw Africa’s website, and If you do not wish to receive this weekly Newsletter, you can “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the Newsletter. NextLaw Africa also uses cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with NextLaw more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you the next time you visit the NextLaw Online Store. Knowing your country and language − and if you are an educator, your school − helps us provide a customized and more useful shopping experience. Knowing someone using your computer or device has subscribed to our App helps us make our advertising and email communications more relevant to your interests. And knowing your contact information, hardware identifiers, and information about your computer or device helps us personalize your operating system, and provide you with better customer service.

As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. NextLaw Africa may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the NextLaw Africa website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

Service Providers

NextLaw Africa shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, Payment Gateways, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever NextLaw Africa operates.

Others

It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for NextLaw Africa to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Protection of Personal Information

NextLaw Africa takes the security of your personal information very seriously. NextLaw Africa’s Websites and all sub-domains are protected, ensuring your personal information on our server and during transit are encrypted, deploying encryption such as Transport Layer Security (TLS). When your personal data is stored by NextLaw, we use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical security measures.

When you use some NextLaw App or post on social networking service, the personal information and content you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a social networking posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

If you or anyone else using the NextLaw App on to a device that is owned by a third party, any information entered —including credit card details, calendar, location, photos, and NextLaw subscriptions — may be downloaded on to that third-party device thereby disclosing any such shared information.

Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

NextLaw Africa makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and our service specific privacy summaries. When assessing these periods we carefully examine our need to collect personal information at all and if we establish a relevant need we only retain it for the shortest possible period to realize the purpose of collection unless a longer retention period is required by law.

Access to Personal Information

You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by signing in to your profile page, from where you can update or correct your profile. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. We may also decline aspects of deletion or access requests if we believe doing so would undermine our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes as described earlier.
