Ways that amena-africa.com collects information
Some areas of the site require you to actively submit information in order for you to benefit from specific features (such as “contact us” section). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.
Some of this information may be personal (information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, email address, brief statement about yourself/company).
AMENA Africa only collects such information when you choose to supply it to them.
Information is also gathered without you actively providing it, through the use of various technologies and methods such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and cookies. These methods do not collect or store personal information.
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you can access the internet. It is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer).
AMENA Africa uses your IP address to diagnose problems with their server, report aggregate information, and determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to the site, and to administer and improve the site.
