COOKIES

Like many websites, BIMHarambee.Africa may use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk or your mobile device for record-keeping purposes. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to personally identifiable information for purposes such as improving the quality of services, tailoring recommendations to interests and making the Website easier to use. Third party advertisers on the Website may also place or read cookies on your browser. Cookies can be disabled at any time by changing your web browser’s options to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Please note that some functionality of our Website may be impaired if you decline to accept cookies.

LINKS

The Website will contain links to other websites or applications belonging to BIMHarambee.Africa sponsors. The fact that the Website links to a website or application or presents a banner ad or other type of advertisement does not mean that BIMHarambee.Africa legally endorses or authorizes that third party, nor is it a representation of any legal affiliation with that third party. If you click on a link to a third-party site or application, including on an advertisement, you will leave the Website and will go to the site or application to which such link directs you. Other sites and applications follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. Because BIMHarambee.Africa cannot control the activities of third parties, it cannot accept responsibility for any use of your personal information by such third parties and it cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy and security practices as BIMHarambee.Africa. You are therefore encouraged to read the privacy policies or statements of the websites and applications you visit/use, before providing any personal information because BIMHarambee.Africa will not be liable for any third party website you click and provide your information to.

However, BIMHarambee.Africa cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to overcome those measures or use your personally identifiable information for improper purposes.
