Privacy Policy



When you use social login:

If you sign into your social network account using the same email that you previously used to register for an account with us, you will access your existing account with us. 
If you sign into your social network account using an email address that we don’t recognise in our systems, a new account will be created in our systems for you. 

You may use social login or regular sign in each time you login into your account with us. If you use regular sign in but a password has not been issued to you (because you registered through social login) you need to get a password through the password reset flow.

When you use social login the "keep me signed in" policies of the social network provider apply. We do not control those policies. For your safety we recommend that you: 
Don’t use social login if you are accessing our Services using a public or shared device
Visit your social network provider site to learn about their sign in policies and your options


On 20 February 2018, the Gun Africa Privacy Policy was updated. Please take a few minutes and review the revised policy. If you have any questions, please contact us. If you do not accept this revised policy, Gun Africa many not be able to provide you with our services. Accordingly, you may close your account here.

This privacy policy describes how the Gun Africa website, tools, applications, and services (“Gun Africa”) handle your personal information. Gun Africa collects, uses, and shares personal information to help Gun Africa work and to keep Gun Africa safe. 


Information posted on Gun Africa is obviously publicly available. Our servers are located in Cape Town, South Africa. Therefore, if you choose to provide us with personal information, you are consenting to Gun Africa’s collection, use, disclosure of your personal information and to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers in South Africa. Gun Africa collects and stores the following personal information:

email address, phone numbers, physical contact information, and (depending on the service used) sometimes financial information;
computer sign-on data, statistics on page views, traffic to and from Guntree and ad data (all through cookies - you can take steps to disable the cookies on your browser although this is likely to affect your ability to use the site);
other information, including users IP address and standard web log information.


Gun Africa uses users’ personal information to:

provide our services
resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems;
encourage safe trading and enforce our policies;
customize, measure, and improve user experience and our services, content, and advertising;
deliver targeted marketing, service updates and promotional offers to you according to your preferences;
do other things for users as described when Gun Africa collects the information.


Gun Africa doesn’t sell or rent users’ personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without users explicit consent. Gun Africa may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a posting or other content violates other’s rights, or protect anyone’s rights, property, or safety. Gun Africa may also share personal information with:

corporate affiliates who help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and provide joint services. (Our corporate affiliates will market only to users who ask them to).
service providers who help with our business operations.
third-party websites and publishers so ads (or the content of the ads) published on Gun Africa can also be published on a broader array of venues or information vehicles.
Registration and sharing through third-party services.

Gun Africa may offer single sign-on services that allow you to use third party login credentials to sign into Gun Africa, with your permission. Gun Africa may also transfer profile information contained in your third-party profile. Gun Africa may also, for your use, enable you to import information about who you are connected, as well as enable you to share information with those third-party sites (other than listings), at your discretion. If you wish to discontinue you such sharing, you will be able to do so through your preference page.

Communications and email tools.

You agree to receive marketing communication from us unless you tell us that you prefer not to receive such communications. If you don’t wish to receive marketing communications from us, simply indicate your preference by following directions provided with the communication. You may not use our site or communication tools to harvest addresses, send spam or otherwise breach our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy. Gun Africa may automatically scan and manually filter email messages sent via our communication tools for malicious activity or prohibited content, but Gun Africa does not permanently store such messages. 

If you use our tools to send content to a friend, Gun Africa doesn’t permanently store your friends’ addresses or use or disclose them for marketing purposes. To report spam from other users, please contact us.


Gun Africa uses lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, but as you probably know, nothing’s perfect, so Gun Africa makes no guarantees.
