Adapt IT recognises that there is a need to communicate with users of the website, and the people whose personal information Adapt IT processes. Adapt IT also recognises that there are various terms that apply to its relationship with the users. In the interest of maintaining accountability and a transparent relationship with users it is important that Adapt IT complies with its legal obligations and show such compliance. This Trust Centre contains the legal notices that users must review and agree with when interacting with Adapt IT, using this website, or entering into a relationship with Adapt IT. Adapt IT Legal has worked hard to ensure that the legal notices are drafted in plain language and has taken into consideration the legal requirements that are applicable to the legal notices. This Trust Centre and other areas of the website apply to all countries that Adapt IT operates in, but there are aspects that are only relevant to a specific country including the following countries:
The following legal notices, in addition to other applicable terms, relate to the relationship between Adapt IT and the user:
Adapt IT is dedicated to ensuring that empowerment takes place. Adapt IT believes that in order to achieve a high level of empowerment, laws like the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Act, its amendments, and any related legislation, codes, rules or policies have to form the foundation.
Unethical conduct goes against what Adapt IT stands for as an organisation. It has a potentially crippling effect on the business community and society at large, and erodes the trust that an organisation should build in its relationships.
Adapt IT is, therefore, committed to maintaining the highest standards of honesty, integrity and ethical conduct and has adopted an Ethics and Conduct Policy to promote and enforce ethical conduct, business practices and standards throughout the organisation and in its relationships.
Furthermore, there is an Anti Bribery and Corruption Policy setting out Adapt IT’s stance on the issue.
