#SaveAfricanHistory (#SAH) is an initiative of Diasfunds Africa Ltd (“Diasfunds,” “we,” ”us,” ”our,”); a limited liability company incorporated and headquartered in Nigeria. Its goal is to digitise Africa’s cultural heritage for development.

Diasfunds takes your privacy seriously and is committed to protecting the information you share with us. This privacy policy explains how we retain and use your personal data, and is intended to help ensure that you remain informed and in control of your information.

This privacy policy applies to the #SAH website and associated products and services.

Your Personal Data

This is information that can be used to identify or contact a single person.

Information we collect and use

We collect your personal data when you sign up for the #SAH newsletter, and when you provide your personal information at any #SAH event.

We also collect data automatically, such as tracking information, IP addresses, and data related to your usage of the #SAH website. This data is collected through the use of Cookies (see “Cookies” below), which help us improve your #SAH website experience.

How long we hold your Personal Data

We only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to realise the purpose(s) it was collected for and in compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

How we use your Personal Data

Your personal information is used with your consent for the purpose(s) described in this privacy policy and in compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

  • We may use your personal information to fulfil your requests for information and services, such as sending you the #SAH newsletters and details of #SAH events.
  • We may also use your personal data to inform you of other Diasfunds initiatives that may be of interest to you. However, if you do not consent to our use of your personal data for this purpose, you can always opt-out at any time.
  • Your personal information may also be used to send you important notices, such as changes to our privacy policy and terms and conditions. Because this information is important to your use of the #SAH website, you may not opt out of receiving these types of communications.

In any event, we will only use your personal data for the purpose(s) for which it was obtained.

Sharing your Personal Data

We will never sell your personal data.

We may make certain personal information available to our partners who work with us on the #SAH initiative, but we will retain full responsibility for your personal data as the data controller. Information will only be shared with our partners to improve your #SAH website/event experience; it will not be shared for third party marketing purposes.

In the event of a reorganisation, merger or sale of Diasfunds, we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Data storage and processing

We take appropriate and reasonable technical and organisational measures to protect your personal information. We may contract specialist companies to store and process data for us, but we will only allow them to do so if your data is adequately protected.

Your Rights

  • You have the right to be notified, in the event of a data breach, within seventy-two hours of our becoming aware of said breach.
  • You have the right to have any incorrect/inchoate personal data amended;
  • You have the right to direct that your personal data held by us be erased, and further dissemination of your data be ceased, and potentially have third parties engaged by us halt processing of your data;
  • You have the right to know whether we hold your personal data and, if we do, to be sent a copy of the personal data that we hold about you within one month of a request by yourselves;
  • You have the right to object to your personal data being used for marketing or profiling;
  • You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not your personal data is being processed, where and for what purpose(s). In addition, you have the right to be given a copy of the personal data that you have provided to us (and which we processed automatically on the basis of your consent or the performance of a contract) in a common electronic format for your re-use, free of charge.

However, it should be noted that there are some exceptions to the rights above. While we will always try to respond to any instructions you may give us about our handling of your personal information, there may be situations where we are unable to meet your requirements in full.

If you would like further information on your rights or wish to exercise them, please contact our Data Protection Officer.
