Data Storage, Transfer, and Retention
The Personal Data that we collected from you is stored within South Africa.
Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers or other data storage devices.
If you are located outside South Africa and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to and process it in South Africa.

Your Personal Data is available and accessible only by those who need the data to accomplish the intended processing purpose. To the extent necessary, your Personal Data may be shared with suppliers and subcontractors (processors and sub-processors) carrying out certain tasks on Minnies behalf and with independent third-parties, including, but not limited to, using personal information you share with us or that we indirectly collect to verify your identity and for fraud prevention purposes.
The security of your data is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Under certain circumstances, Minnies may be required to disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).
