By agreeing to participate, we are assuming you are eligible for a subsidised Wonderbag,
that is, Persons affected by energy shortages, Persons living in vulnerable communities,
Persons struggling financially and impacted by climate change.
The reason we are able to sell Wonderbags at a subsidised price is because of the carbon
credits we receive. To receive carbon credits, Independent auditors contact a sample of
Wonderbag users to understand their use of the Wonderbag and how much carbon dioxide
is taken out of the atmosphere. The information we receive from you, as per the form that
you will be asked to complete, is shared with our carbon consultants, as well as independent
auditing companies, who may use it only to verify that the information regarding the
reduction in carbon dioxide is correct. We are then issued credits based on the results.
It’s vital that our data is accurate (bags are linked to a customer’s ID) because without
carbon credits, we won’t be able to sell Wonderbags at a subsidised rate and reach more
people who need the Wonderbag, especially those who cannot afford it at its full retail price.
The Wonderbags fulfil a social, economic and environmental purpose.
This information we receive from you is kept for fourteen (14) years, which is the standard
duration of the carbon project. After that period, it is destroyed or made anonymous, so that
it is no longer linked to you specifically.
Your information will be kept private and safe, in line with government, POPIA, regulations.
If you agree, we may also send you marketing information from time to time, but you can
choose not to receive this or, if you have agreed, you can contact us at any time to ask us to
stop sending you marketing materials.
You have the right, at any time, to ask us to confirm what personal information we hold about
you and with who we have shared it. You may also ask us to correct or update any incorrect
information or ask us to stop using your information. If you ask us to stop before the 14-year
period is over, we may need to keep some of the information (but we will make this as little
as possible) until the end of the carbon project. We will in such cases do our best to make
the information anonymous. We will request you stop using the Wonderbag and you will no
longer form part of the project.
