Privacy Policy

Promotion of Access to Information Act
The Promotion of Access to Information Act, no. 2 of 2000 (Republic of South Africa) was enacted to give effect to the constitutional right of access to any information held by any private or public body that is required for the exercise or protection of any rights. Certain requirements, however, have to be met for access to any information being granted. The Act requires that a manual be prepared to assist people in exercising their right of access to information.
Your privacy is very important to us. At Newlands Brewery we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
• We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
• We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
• We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
It is Newlands Brewery’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
