At MotorPress we are obsessed with your privacy. We have to be. Not only is your privacy regulated by
South African law, it is in our interest to keep your information private. The way we see it, you are

MotorPress has taken a number of steps to ensure the security of your information and to keep your
privacy... well... private. Here's what we do:
Under no circumstances are your details sold, bartered, traded or handed over to any other
organisation. Period. We just don't do it.
Your personal information is securely stored. We make use of industry standard password hashing
ciphers to ensure passwords are correctly encrypted and stored.
You have control over what you receive via email. At any point, you can visit our list manager
(you can find the link at the bottom of any email you get from MotorPress), or log into your account
and change your subscription settings from the Account menu.

with this sort of request, we ask that you immediately forward it to
firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can investigate it.
We make sure of a number of services both locally and internationally. We only transmit data to these
entities that is required for them to provide the services we need. We choose these entities
carefully based on their own privacy policies, which must be compatible with ours. In other words,
the services we use, are just as paranoid about security as we are.
MotorPress makes use of some pretty advanced technology to do what it does best. One of the things
we have to do is store information on your computer. We do this in the form of a cookie. A cookie

We collect some anonymous usage statistics while you use the MotorPress service. This information
contains no identifiable information. The closest we get to knowing any one stat from another is
which country it originated from.
