Website: Terms of Use

Introduction

Welcome to our website! We hope you find the information about our business, services and *Viewpoint (our blog) enjoyable and informative.

However, as with any website, we have a few terms and conditions for using st‑and.co.za. Firstly, we take your privacy and complying with South African law very seriously.

Secondly, you won’t find any complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text. Our aim is always to be clear and easy to understand.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.


Our Terms Of Use

By using our website you are agreeing to comply with, and be bound by, the following terms and conditions.

We’ll cover who we are, our general terms, copyright information, and joining in the discussions with us in *Viewpoint, our blog.

If you’re not happy with any part of these terms and conditions, please do not use our website.

These terms of use should be read in conjunction with our privacy & cookie policy, available separately to enhance prominence on our website.

If the settings of the browser you are using to view this website are set to accept cookies we take this, and your continued use of our website, as your consent to our use of cookies.


Who’s Who?

ST‑AND (“We” and “Us”) is owned by Steve Andrews and registered under the Companies Act, 2008 (South Africa) as ST‑AND Brand & People Development (Pty) Ltd, Reg No. 2014/132014/07. This website is owned and managed by us.

“You” and “Your” refers to you, the viewer or user of this website.


General Terms

The content we provide is for general informational purposes to promote our business services together with material to stimulate discussion.

We use all reasonable skill and diligence to ensure that all the content we provide online is correct and up to date.

However, neither ST‑AND or any third parties provide any warranty or guarantee as to the accuracy, timeliness, performance, completeness or suitability of the information on this website for any particular purpose.

We will always consult with you first to ensure that the services or materials that interest you will deliver to your business requirements. Your use of any information or materials on this website without consultation with us is therefore entirely at your own risk.

ST‐AND shall be under no liability for any consequential or indirect loss whatsoever which arises out of or in connection with the use of our website.

From time to time we may include links to other websites to allow you convenient access to further information. Although our aim is only to provide quality, safe and relevant external links, we obviously have no control over the nature, content or availability of those sites.

The inclusion of any links does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorsement of the views expressed within them.

That’s apart from the links provided under our acknowledgements, where without the services and support of those credited, ST‑AND wouldn’t be what it is today.

We make every effort to keep st‐and.co.za up and running smoothly, however we can’t guarantee there won’t be the occasional hiccup and we apologise in advance if we’re temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.

*VIEWPOINT DISCUSSIONS

Our discussion area in *Viewpoint is for you to share your views.

We’re more than happy for you to disagree with us, or another commenter’s actions or opinions. However we’ll only accept healthy debate, not rude behaviour that attacks individuals personally.

So, in the spirit of fair and free speech, a few participation guidelines…

Please Do:

  • Be respectful of others who use this site
  • Use language and tone that’s family-friendly
  • Stay on topic

Please Don’t:

  • Use offensive, inflammatory or provocative language
  • Be rude to others
  • Break the law, e.g. libellous remarks or condoning illegal activity
  • Use this site for your political purposes
  • Post personal information such as e-mail or postal addresses, phone numbers or other online contact details
  • Impersonate or falsely claim to be someone you are not
  • Login using someone else’s account
  • Commercially endorse or promote any product, service or publication not relevant to the discussion
  • Post the same comment numerous times; that’s spam

Comments may be edited, blocked or deleted at our discretion – that means any comment, at any time, for any reason.

If you feel that any comment breaks our commenting guidelines, there are two ways to let us know…

1) By email

2) By flagging the comment

Our comments and discussion are powered by Disqus which enables you to flag a comment for our attention. Simply click on the flag icon – hover over the comment on desktop or click the comment on mobile to display the flag – to tell us that a comment requires moderator attention.

Please note: If you feel that a commenter is breaking the rules of Disqus you can “Report User” by clicking on the flag against their profile. If they are only breaking the guidelines of our site you need to “Flag Comment” (to raise it to our attention) rather than “Flag User”.

By posting a comment in the discussion section of *Viewpoint you are granting us permission to use, reproduce, adapt and distribute in any existing or future media.
