1. GENERAL POLICIES
The Discount Network (Pty) Ltd, trading as Best Branding South Africa (hereinafter referred to as “Best Branding”).
All orders are subject to Best Branding’s Terms and Conditions.
A trading account will only be opened once a client profile, including terms and conditions has been completed in full, signed by an authorised signatory and returned to Best Branding.
If you do not agree with this privacy notice or are concerned about any aspect as it relates to your personal information, please do not continue to use the Best Branding website or any services offered by us.

The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) is aimed at protecting your personal information and prescribes what we must and must not do with it. POPI created an Information Regulator that checks that companies like Best Branding manage personal information in a responsible manner that respects your privacy.
Best Branding shall therefore take all reasonable steps to protect the personal information of users.
Protecting your privacy is as important to us as it is to you. For us, it’s more than just making sure we comply with the relevant legislation because you trust us with your personal information, and we respect that trust.
This privacy notice explains why and how we collect, use, and store your personal information.
