Online Privacy Statement
Welcome to Sysmex South Africa
We are pleased you are visiting our web pages and thank you for your interest in our company, products and website. We want to make sure your privacy is protected while using our web pages, so please note the following:
Anonymous data collection:
You can visit Sysmex South Africa web pages without telling us who you are. We can only determine the name of your ISP, the web page from which you are visiting us, and the web pages you visit on our site. This Information will be evaluated for statistical purposes. But it means you stay anonymous as a single user.
International Privacy Practices:
To provide our products and services to you, we may send and store your personal information (also commonly referred to as personal data) outside of the country where you reside or are located. Accordingly, your personal information may be transferred outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to countries that may not or do not provide the same level of protection for your personal information. We are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information when it is transferred. If you reside or are located within the European Economic Area and such transfers occur, we take appropriate steps to provide the same level of protection for the processing carried out in any such countries as you would have within the European Economic Area to the extent feasible under applicable law. By using and accessing our products and services, users who reside or are located in countries outside of the European Economic Area agree and consent to the transfer to and processing of personal information on servers located outside of the country where they reside, and that the protection of such information may be different than required under the laws of their residence or location.

Data related to individuals will only be collected if you voluntarily provide us with this information, e.g. for a contract, a survey or when registering personalised services.
In the context of personalised services by Sysmex South Africa, we will process your registration data based on your acceptance for advertising and market research, and process them as needed for configuring electronic services. In addition, should you agree, we will collate the information collected during your visit to our Sysmex South Africa pages and generate a user profile so we can offer tailored advertising personally to you. This information will be transferred in coded format to counteract abuse of these data by a third party.

We offer users the opportunity to participate in an Online Course on or through the Site. If you desire to participate in a course, you will be asked to provide us with certain information necessary to conduct such a course. This information may include, among other things, your name and email address.
If you participate in an online course, we may collect from you certain student-generated content, such as assignments you submit to instructors, peer-graded assignments and peer grading student feedback. We also collect course data, such as student responses to in-video quizzes, standalone quizzes, exams and surveys.

We may also use or publish posts submitted through the communication features without using Personally Identification Information.
Participation in Online Courses:
We use the Personally identifiable information that we collect from you when you participate in an Online Course through the Site for processing purposes, including but not limited to tracking attendance, progress and completion of an Online Course. We may also share your Personally identifiable information and your performance in a given Online Course with the instructor or instructors who taught the course, with teaching assistants or other individuals designated by the instructor or instructors to assist with the creation, modification or operation of the course, and with the institution or institutions with which they are affiliated.
