Privacy Policy


Your privacy is critically important to us. At SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd we have a few fundamental principles:

  • 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 else.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: 

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd's visitors use its website. From time to time, SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

SoundSelect also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. SoundSelect only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

The amount and type of information that SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd – by purchasing access to the SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd comment spam prevention service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd . SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

However, SoundSelect does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SoundSelect believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd website and have supplied your email address, SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SoundSelect the Shop (PTY) Ltd takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
