FortiFood Health Services respect your privacy. This means that any and all of the personal information collected on this site will be kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, rented, reused, loaned or disclosed. Any information you provide will be held with the utmost care and will only be used to process your order and to provide you with the best possible service. If you have any questions, please contact us here.
FortiFood Health Services takes all reasonable steps to protect our user’s personal information. For the purpose of this clause, “personal information” is defined as detailed in the Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000 (PAIA). The PAIA may be downloaded here.
1. WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
We collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address as part of the buying process when you purchase something from our online store.
We share your personal information with service providers to help us provide our services and fulfil our contracts with you, as described herein.
We also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address when you browse our online store in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
Email marketing: With your permission, we may send you emails about our online store, new products and research articles.
We accept that you consent to our collecting and using your personal information for the specific purposes of completing a transaction, verifying your credit card, placing an order, arranging for a delivery or return of a purchase when you provide us with such information.
If we ask for your personal information for a different reason, such as marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
4. ONLINE PAYMENTS
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
5. THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us, such as couriers, will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the way in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
For example, if you are located in South Africa and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, altered, disclosed or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependants to use this site.
