It is easy to see why many people are drawn to the idea of having a pet. Pets can provide companionship, love, and loyalty. They can also be a great source of entertainment, exercise, and responsibility. Additionally, having a pet can have a positive effect on mental and physical health.

It is understandable why so many people are drawn to the concept of having a pet in their lives. They can give companionship, love, and dedication. Moreover, they can be a great source of amusement, exercise, and accountability. Furthermore, having a pet can have a positive influence on one’s mental and physical well-being.

It is possible to reduce the rate of plagiarism by altering the structure of the text without sacrificing the context or semantic significance. Keeping the same markdown formatting can help ensure that the original meaning is preserved.

We gather individual information by way of the following methods:

In the following, we explain the different ways we gather Personal Data.

Straight From You

For numerous purposes, we may request that you supply Personal Data. When you reach out to us or ask for information concerning our Services as a prospective customer, we will ask for contact information which may include your name, email address, phone number, geographic area and job title. In addition, when you register to get our newsletters or other offers, we gather similar data from you.

At other times, we may request further information from you, for example when applying for a job on our Sites or when contacting our customer service representatives.

When you register for a webinar, get a whitepaper from our Sites or from one of our Advertising partners, or fill out a “contact us” form on our Sites, you may be asked to submit your personal information.

For access to the Supply Chain Afrika platform, we may also collect Personal Data from employees, contractors, or clients. This data can consist of a range of details such as name, address, company name, location, email address, phone number and a password for the account.

From External Sources/Customers

With your permission when necessary, we may obtain information from third-party providers and sources through our Sites and Services. This information, either by itself or when combined with other data, could potentially be used to identify a particular person, such as you.

We have no authority over the privacy policies of the external sources from which we acquire information.

The importance of maintaining proper citation when writing cannot be overstated. It is essential to give credit where it is due in order to avoid plagiarism. When utilizing someone else’s work, it is imperative that the originator is acknowledged and that their ideas are referenced correctly. This ensures that the writer is not claiming the work as their own.

The process of avoiding plagiarism can be done by altering the structure of the text while still preserving the original context and meaning. This method ensures that the markdown formatting is kept intact.

Utilizing Personal Data and Other Info

Additionally, it is important to consider the various legal implications associated with the use of such information. Companies must ensure that they are compliant with all applicable laws and regulations, and that they respect the privacy of their customers.

The purpose for which Personal Data is collected is detailed as follows.

This anonymised, de-identified and/or aggregated information can be used for our own business purposes, including but not limited to providing the data to current and potential business partners, clients, service providers, affiliates, agents and other third parties.

EU Data Subjects

People living in EU countries who have data collected about them are referred to as EU Data Subjects.

In this section, we will discuss the EU data subjects (including Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland). Supply Chain Afrika Magazine is the data controller for the Sites and Services, and it handles any Personal Data provided to them. Unless given consent for independent uses of the Personal Data or another lawful basis for processing, Supply Chain Afrika Magazine acts as a data processor for the Services, as mentioned in the “Information Collected Through our Services” section. This means that for any transactions with Clients, Supply Chain Afrika Magazine processes the data on their behalf. The legal bases for processing Personal Data include:

  • We may process your Personal Data based on your consent. You can withdraw this consent, as explained further down.
  • We process data provided by you (such as name, email, address, phone, company name and role) when you ask for more information about the Supply Chain Afrika Magazine Services, or when you contact us regarding our Services. This is necessary to answer your request or before entering into a contract with us or a data controller that is using our Services.
  • Account-related data (usernames, emails, billing information) is used to set up accounts for users, provide access to the Services, contact users regarding their use of the Services or inform them about important changes. This is related to the performance of the contract between you and us or our clients.
  • We may send you information about new products, services or promotions via email or other electronic communication if you give us your consent. If you haven’t opted-in for these marketing messages, we could be relying on an exception to opt-in requirements or we have a legitimate interest to make our business successful.
  • We use data related to your use of the Sites and/or the Services to understand how users interact with the Sites and Services, and to improve user experience and our Service offerings. This is necessary for our legitimate interests.
  • We have a legitimate interest in aggregating/anonymising/de-identifying data collected through our Sites and/or Services for our business purposes.
  • When we process your Personal Data for our legitimate interests, we take into account any potential impact on you, and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate interests don’t automatically supersede yours – we won’t use your Personal Data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, unless we have your consent or are required or allowed by law. You can object to processing that is based on our legitimate interests, as described below.

One effective way to avoid plagiarism is to restructure the text so that it does not resemble the original. This can be done by altering the format of the passage, without changing the meaning conveyed. This technique allows the author to maintain the same context, while avoiding any potential plagiarism.

The act of plagiarism involves utilizing another individual’s words or ideas and claiming them as one’s own. Avoiding it requires modifying the structure of the written work while still maintaining the same meaning and context.

In accordance with applicable laws and reasonable measures that could be taken by us to check your identity, you possess the following rights concerning your Personal Data:

  • Access right: Upon request, we will confirm if we are processing your Personal Data and provide you with a copy, plus other related details. If you need extra copies, a reasonable fee may be charged.
  • Rectification right: If your Personal Data that is under our control is inaccurate or incomplete, you can ask us to correct it. However, this doesn’t apply to data from a third party, such as a governmental agency, and you’ll need to contact them directly. If we’ve shared your Personal Data with anyone, we will inform them about the correction, when possible. If you ask us, we will tell you who we’ve shared your Personal Data with, where possible and legally allowed.
  • Erasure right: You can ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data in some circumstances, like when we no longer need it. However, if there are other interests, such as a legal obligation, that take precedence over your right to deletion, we may not be able to do so. If we’ve shared your data with others, we will inform them about the erasure, when possible. We will also tell you who we’ve shared your Personal Data with, when you request us to do so, where possible and legally allowed.
  • Restriction right: You can ask us to restrict or ‘block’ the processing of your Personal Data in certain cases, such as when you contest its accuracy or object to its processing. We will tell you before we lift any restrictions on processing. If we’ve shared your Personal Data with anyone, we will inform them about the restriction, when possible. We will also tell you who we’ve shared your Personal Data with, when you request us to do so, where possible and legally allowed.
  • Data portability right: From 25 May 2018, you have the right to obtain your Personal Data that was either given to us with your consent or required for the contract performance, when available. We will provide you with your Personal Data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
  • Objection right: You can ask us to stop processing your Personal Data at any time, which we will do if we are processing it for the Services, for direct marketing, or otherwise. However, if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing it, we may continue to do so. You can exercise your rights by contacting us as indicated in the “Contact Us” section. Note that you will have to verify your identity when submitting such a request.
  • Rights in relation to automated decision-making and profiling: You have the right to be free of decisions that we make based solely on automated processing of your Personal Data, including profiling, which have a significant legal effect on you, unless such profiling is necessary for entering into or performing a contract between you and us, or with your explicit consent.
  • Withdrawal of consent right: If we rely on your consent to process your Personal Data, you have the right to withdraw it at any time. This won’t affect the processing of data that was done before we received your request.
  • Right to file a complaint with the data protection authority: If you have any concerns about our privacy practices, including the way we have handled your Personal Data, you can submit a complaint to the data protection authority that is authorised to address such issues.
  • Rather than relying solely on one’s own efforts, it can be beneficial to ask for help from others. Seeking help from family, friends, and colleagues can be an effective way of achieving desired goals. Collaboration and communication are two key aspects of working alongside others to complete tasks and reach objectives.

It is possible to take steps to avoid plagiarism when writing; these include changing the structure of the text so that it does not have the same meaning, yet still conveys the same context. This can be accomplished by altering sentences, word choice, and the order of ideas. Additionally, citing any sources used is an important part of keeping a paper free from plagiarism.

In the event that you possess an account with us, we may direct you to use certain of your rights as mentioned above through the settings or functions of your account, or by erasing your account.

You, as an EU Data Subject, may send an email to info@supplychainafrika.com or reach out to us at the address provided in the Contact Us section if you have any questions concerning your rights.

The Transfer of Data Internationally

The movement of data between countries is a process that has become increasingly more common in today’s globalized world. As people and organizations increasingly rely on technology for communication and data storage, the need to transfer data across international borders has grown significantly. This has led to the development of various ways to securely transfer data internationally.

If you are based in a country other than the United Kingdom, then you should be aware that Supply Chain Afrika Magazine’s site will be transferring, storing, and managing your information within the UK.

In order to continue using this website and to offer Supply Chain Afrika Magazine your details, you need to agree to the transfer, handling and storage of your information within the United Kingdom. If you are not ready to accept this, then you should not utilize our Sites or Services.

It is worth mentioning that the regulations pertaining to data privacy in the United Kingdom may not be as detailed as those in other nations like the EU and the US. Supply Chain Afrika Magazine’s service providers utilize suitable protections for your Personal Data when it is sent to and processed in the United Kingdom.


The act of keeping something stored away or preserving it is known as retention. It is the ability to remember information for a certain period of time. Long-term retention of information is dependent on how well the information is initially encoded.

The length of time Supply Chain Afrika Magazine holds onto Personal Data depends on the purpose for which it was gathered or the terms of our agreements, or is in accordance with the law.

While deciding how much time we should keep information, we take into account the span of our relationship with you or our customers, and the delivery of our Services. We also look at if there is a legal necessity to preserve the data for a set period, our rationale for utilizing your data, and the danger of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Data.

We can also process Personal Data so that it’s no longer associated with you and use it for research or other analytical purposes. If the information has been anonymized or de-identified, we may use it for as long as there is a legitimate business purpose for doing so, without the need for further notification.

Youths 16 and Younger

We do not provide our Services and Sites to children under 16 years old (or the age required by law). We do not knowingly collect or obtain Personal Data from them. If we come to the realization that we have received Personal Data from a minor who requires parental consent for processing, we will delete the information. If you think that we have gotten Personal Data from a child that needs permission from the parent, you can reach out to us at info@supplychainafrika.com.

This Privacy Policy may be modified from time to time.

This Privacy Policy may be altered at any time. All changes to the policy will be posted on this page, and the date of the most recent version will be stated at the top. We recommend you to regularly visit this page to stay informed of our current policy. Depending on the applicable law, we will inform you of any changes. By continuing to use the Sites and/or the Services or providing us with your information after a replacement policy is released, you are agreeing to abide by the modified Privacy Policy.

If you’d like to get in touch with us, we’re just a message away! You can easily reach out to us if you have any questions or need assistance.
