Africa Investor is committed to protecting the privacy of its subscribers. This statement outlines our privacy and data protection policy.

Collection and use of user details
Personal details of Africa Investor magazine subscribers will be collected and processed upon subscription to the magazine.

All personal information is collected with the knowledge of subscribers to Africa Investor Magazine via this website's order forms.

This information is collected for the following purposes:
• order fulfilment/renewal notification
• to notify subscribers of additional subscriber services
• to notify subscribers of relevant promotional activities both within Africa Investor Magazine and across Africa Investor Group of companies.
• Periodically send out subscriber questionnaires

If you do not wish to receive information about our products or services or information from other organisations about products or services offered by them, please tick the appropriate box on the order form. However, we may disclose your information to business partners and third party suppliers we engage to provide services, which involve processing data on our behalf.

User information is retained for in-house research to:
• improve our understanding of customer needs and product development
• build marketing profiles
• aid strategic development
• manage our relationship with advertisers

All results of such research and analysis will be anonymised or aggregated information and will not reveal any personal facts about individual customers.

Africa Investor Magazine Ltd. is part of Africa Investor Group, which operates from offices worldwide. Steps have been taken to ensure that consistently high standards of data protection are adhered to in all regional offices for all the forms of processing mentioned above.

Communication with subscribers
Africa Investor will contact subscribers with information relating to their subscription using a variety of media.

In addition our order forms provide users with a series of choices as regards further promotional activity.

When filling out order forms on this site, subscribers should indicate whether they are receptive to the use of e-mail to inform them of further Africa Investor magazine promotions. If you are keen to be kept informed of further Africa Investor magazine promotions, as well as technical/functional developments related to our website and on-line services then you should tick the e-mail opt-in box.

You may also indicate whether you wish to receive such information from other Economist Group businesses. If you don't wish to hear from these companies, please tick the appropriate box on the registration form to opt out of such activity.

We may occasionally allow other similar but reputable organisations which may be of interest to contact you. If you don't wish to hear from these companies, please tick the appropriate box on the order form to opt out of such activity.

Security Policy
Africa Investor Magazine will maintain appropriate measures to ensure that subscribers' personal details are not misused, accidentally destroyed, lost or altered within Africa Investor's server environment.

Occasions will arise when customer information is passed outside Africa Investor Magazine to other data processors (i.e. fulfilment bureaux, database consultants etc.) but they will only act upon instruction from Africa Investor in order to perform the services required.

Transfer of data overseas
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by communicating electronically with us you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
