About us

Hanley is a South African brand that specialises in laptops, tablets and computer development and provision. This Privacy Policy is built with your requirements in mind, and it’s critical that you understand our personal information collecting and usage procedures so that, in the end, you have control over the personal information you supply to Hanley Brand.


About this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how Hanley Brand collects, uses, discloses, processes, and protects any personal information you provide to us or that we collect. When you use the services on our platform, we may ask you to supply certain information that allows us to identify you. Our information will only be used in compliance with this Privacy Policy and/or our terms and conditions for users. Except as otherwise specifically provided by applicable laws in your region, “personal information” means information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify an individual, either from that information alone or from that information combined with other information Hanley Brand has access to about that individual. Your personal information will be used in full line with our Privacy Policy.

How we can help you

In the end, we want the best for all of our users. If you have any questions or issues about our data handling policies as outlined in this Privacy Policy, please contact us at https://privacy.hanley.co.za/support. We look forward to hearing from you.

1 What information is collected by us and how do we use it?

1.1 What information is collected by us

In order for us to serve you with our services, we will ask you to give personal information that is required to do so. We will only collect information that is required for the specific, precise, explicit, and legitimate objectives for which it was collected, and we will not treat it in any way that is incompatible with those goals. You have the option of providing the information we’ve requested, but in most circumstances, if you don’t submit your personal information, we won’t be able to perform our services or reply to your inquiries. We may collect the following categories of information, depending on the service you choose:

1.1.1 Information you provide to us

Any personal information you supply to us that is required for the service you select may be collected. For example, when you log in, you may provide us with your Hanley Online Store Account information; if you want to get news or updates from us, you may provide us with your email address.

1.1.2 Information that we collect in your use of services

We may gather log data about your activities, such as cookies and IP addresses. Log data is information about how you utilize specific features on the websites. Cookies and IP addresses, for example, network request information, normal system logs, crash information, and log information generated by using the services are all examples of data (such as access time, activity time, etc.). We use aggregated data from several sources to improve your experience with our applications and websites.

1.1.3 Non-personally identifiable information

Other types of information that are not directly or indirectly related to an individual and may not be defined as personal information under applicable local regulations may also be collected. Statistical data collected when you utilize a given service is one example of such information (e.g. user clicks, browsing behaviours, page access events). The goal of this type of data collection is to improve the services we offer you. How you use our services determines the type and amount of information we gather.

Such data is not personal information in its aggregated form because it cannot be used to identify you. Non-personal information combined with personal information, on the other hand, will be treated as personal information.

1.2 How we use the personal information that we collect

Personal information is collected in order to offer you with services and to ensure that we comply with all applicable laws, rules, and other regulatory obligations. This entails:

  • Providing, processing, maintaining, improving and developing our services to you.
  • Handling your questions or requests about our services, such as sending notifications.
  • Providing marketing and promotional materials and updates, as well as other pertinent promotional activities. Unless otherwise stated by relevant regulations, you may opt-out of receiving some types of promotional materials by using the means provided in the message (such as the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the message). Please review the section below titled “Your Rights.”
  • Internal purposes such as data analysis, research, and development of statistical information related to the use of our services for improvement.
  • Storing and maintaining information related to you for our business operations (such as business statistics) or for fulfilling our legal obligations.
  • Other purposes with your consent.

We may combine this information with other information (including information across different services or devices such as computers, mobile phones and other connected devices) to provide and improve our services and content. For example, we may use your Hanley Online Store  details in all services you use that require a Hanley Online Store Account.

2 Cookies and other technologies

Technologies such as cookies, tags, and scripts are used by Hanley Brand and our third party service providers and business partners (for more information see “How we share, transfer, and publicly disclose your personal information” below). These technologies are used in analysing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis. These technologies help us better understand users’ behaviour, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, as well as facilitate and measure the effectiveness of web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non‑personal information, except where Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local laws.

  • Log files: As true of most websites, we gather certain information and store it in log files. This information may include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We do not link this automatically collected data to other information we gather about you.
  • Local storage – HTML5/Flash: We use Local Storage Objects (LSOs) such as HTML5 or Flash to store content and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our sites also use HTML5 or Flash cookies to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tool for removing HTML5 LSOs.

3.1.5 Other

In accordance with legal requirements, legal procedures, litigation and/or requests from public agencies and government agencies, Hanley Brand may need to disclose your personal information. If the disclosure is necessary or appropriate for national security, law enforcement, or other matters of public importance, we may also disclose information about you.

4 How we store and protect your personal information

4.1 Hanley Brand’s security safeguards

We are committed to keeping your personal information secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure or other similar risks, we have put in place all legally required physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from you. We will ensure that we safeguard your personal information in accordance with applicable law.

For example, when you access your Hanley Online Store , you can choose to use our two-step verification program for better security. When you send or receive data from your Hanley Brand device to our servers, we make sure they are encrypted using Transport Layer Security (“TLS”) and other algorithms.

All of your personal information is kept safe and secure on secure servers in secure facilities. We categorise your data according to its relevance and sensitivity, and we ensure that it is secure to the needed degree. We have unique access restrictions in place for cloud-based data storage, and we assess our data collection, storage, and processing procedures, as well as physical security measures, on a regular basis to protect against unauthorized access and use.

We perform due diligence on our business partners and third-party service providers to ensure that your personal information is protected. We also ensure that these third parties adhere to proper security standards by enforcing contractual limits and, if necessary, conducting audits and evaluations. Furthermore, our employees, as well as those of our business partners and third-party service providers who have access to your personal information, are bound by enforceable confidentiality duties.

To increase our employees’ knowledge of the necessity of protecting personal information, we undertake security and privacy training courses and tests. To protect your personal information, we shall take all reasonable and legally required actions. However, you should be aware that Internet use is not completely safe, and as a result, we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal information sent to or received from you via the Internet.

We handle personal data breaches in accordance with applicable data protection law, which includes notifying the relevant data protection supervisory authority and data subjects when necessary.

4.2 What you can do

You can create a unique password for Hanley Brand by not giving your sign-in password or account details to anybody (unless that person has been duly authorized by you) to prevent password leaks to other websites, which could compromise the security of your Hanley Brand account. Please do not reveal the verification code you received to anyone if at all possible (including those who claim to be Hanley Brand customer service). When you sign in as a Hanley Online Store user on Hanley Brand websites, you should always sign out at the end of your session, especially if you’re using someone else’s computer or a public Internet terminal.

Hanley Brand will not be held liable for security breaches caused by a third party gaining access to your personal information due to your failure to keep your personal information secret. Regardless of the foregoing, you must promptly notify us if there is any unauthorized use of your account by another Internet user or any other security breach. We will be able to secure the privacy of your personal information with your aid.

4.3 Retention policy

We keep personal information for as long as it’s needed for the purposes of the data collection specified in this Privacy Policy, or as long as relevant laws require. Once the purpose of collecting is accomplished, or after we confirm your request for erasure, or after we end the operation of the associated service, we will no longer store, erase, or anonymize personal information. Personal information that we process for public interest, scientific, historical research, or statistical reasons is an exception. Where applicable laws or your request permit, Hanley Brand will preserve this type of information for longer than its regular retention period, even if subsequent data processing is unrelated to the initial purpose of collection.

5 Your rights

Controlling your personal information

5.1 Controlling settings

Hanley Brand understands that everyone’s privacy concerns are different. As a result, we’ve included some of the options Hanley Brand makes available to you to limit the collection, use, disclosure, or processing of your personal information and modify your privacy settings, such as signing in or out of the Hanley Online Store.

If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for the aforementioned purposes, you may change your mind at any time by contacting us at https://hanleystore.com/support

5.2 Your rights to your personal information

Depending on applicable laws and regulations, you have the right to access, rectification, and erasure of any other personal information that we hold about you (hereinafter referred to as the request).

You may also access and update the details relating to the personal information in your Hanley Online Store  at https://hanleystore.com/account or by logging into your account on your device. For additional information, please write to us or contact us at https://hanleystore.com/support

This Privacy Policy stipulates that your request must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, as well as the following requirements:

(1) Through Hanley Brand’s specific request submission channels, which are given below, and your request should be in writing (unless the local legislation expressly accepts an oral request) to ensure the confidentiality of your personal information;

(2) Provide sufficient information to allow Hanley Brand to authenticate your identification and confirm that you are the subject of the requested information or a legal representative of the subject.

We will respond to your request within any term set out under your applicable data protection regulations once we have obtained sufficient information to establish that it can be processed.In detail:

  • You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your personal information and your rights. This is why we are providing you with the information in this Privacy Policy.
  • Based on the requirements of applicable laws, a copy of your personal data collected and processed by us will be provided to you upon your request free of charge. For any extra requests for relevant information, we may charge a reasonable fee based on actual administrative costs according to the applicable laws.
  • If any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, you are entitled to have your personal information corrected or completed.
  • You have the right to seek the deletion or removal of your personal information if there is no compelling reason for us to maintain it based on the requirements of applicable legislation. We will take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to examine the basis for your erasure request. Due to relevant law and/or technological restrictions, we may not be able to remove the information from the backup system immediately if the right is upheld. If this is the case, your personal information will be securely stored and isolated from further processing until the backup can be cleared or made anonymous.
  • You have the right to object to certain types of processing, and under certain circumstances where the legal basis for processing is our legitimate interests.

Particularly under the laws of some jurisdictions:

  • You have the right to have the processing of your personal data restricted by us. Your request for a restriction will be considered on the basis of the grounds you provide.

It may also be rejected if we consider that certain parts of the request to delete or access the information will prevent us from legally using the information for the aforementioned anti-fraud and security purposes.
