2. Cookies

We also receive information about our Website’s visitors through cookies. A cookie is a piece of data or file that a website can send to your Internet browser which may then store it on your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. Cookies store information such as the pages you visited, the Website features you used, and the amount of time you visited a page. We use what is called a ‘session’ cookie on our Website: (a) to allow Website visitors to personalize their experience based on information, products, and services relevant to their areas of interest, (b) to track a ‘user session’ within a product or service you signed up for, and (c) to keep users from taking part in a survey more than once or from voting more than once. Information about the cookies we use can be found at http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

The session and authentication cookies are of limited duration and are automatically deleted when you close your Internet browser. The analytics cookies are used to collect information about how Website visitors use the Website in order to help us improve the Website and the user experience. These cookies are not linked to any personal information that can identify you. You always have the right to refuse the storage of cookies on your computer, or to disable and/or delete cookies at any time. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of the Website if cookies are disabled. By logging into the Website or clicking through it, that means that you have accepted our cookies.

To find out more about these cookies and how they can be managed and disabled please visit the Interactive Advertising Bureau http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

We receive IP addresses in the normal course of the operation of the Website. An IP address is a code assigned to the device you use to access the Internet by your Internet service provider. We may use your IP address in order to recognize your device so that we can provide a customized service for you. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating Website usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, ensuring appropriate access rights by authorized users, facilitating Website security and administering the Website. We treat IP addresses, server log files and related information as non-personal information except where otherwise required under applicable law.

3. How we use your personal information

We may use any personal information that you make available to our Company in order to provide, maintain and administer your login account and to provide you with information, products and/or Services you request or that we believe may be of interest to you.

If you contact us to request more information about the Website and/or the Services, your request and any details you provide, including your name, title, telephone or mobile number, or email address will be shared with appropriate staff to carry out your request.

Your personal information and any personal information you provide may be shared with and used by a parent, subsidiary, or affiliate entity within the Company’s corporate family, its partner entities, and the vendors and service agencies that may be engaged to assist the Company, including assistance in providing the Services, or other services such as Website technical support, or sending communications on our behalf. If we provide personal information to the persons, entities and/or organizations as described in this Notice, we only provide the personal information they need to help us deliver the services. They are each required to keep the information confidential and are prohibited from using that information for any purpose other than to provide services on our behalf and comply with applicable law.

We combine and use non-personal information about the use of our Website so that we can improve the Website by making it more user-friendly and improve its content and design.

We may release personal information in other situations, such as: (i) if we are required or permitted to do so by law or legal process, (ii) in response to reasonable requests by law enforcement authorities or other government officials, (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity, or (iv) if necessary to protect the important interests of another individual (such as to prevent death, bodily harm, or serious damage to property). We hold the right to transfer information about our users in the event we sell or transfer all or nearly all our business or assets.

The personal information you provide for the purposes of accessing this Website will be retained by Nevakar until your user access is cancelled, and for a reasonable period of time thereafter for administrative or internal compliance purposes.

We will not use or disclose your personal information in a way that is meaningfully different than described in this Privacy Policy unless we first get your consent to do so.

4. Our commitment to information security

We have implemented reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Neonstone, the Data Service Provider working for and on behalf of the Company, will securely transfer your personal information to its servers, including those in the USA, by the most appropriate method for data transfers. This may include having in place agreements using the EU Model Clauses of the European Commission. By submitting your personal information, you agree to this transfer and storage and that personal information you provide may also be transferred to and processed by persons operating outside the USA and/or the European Economic Area who work for the Company, their partner entities, vendors and/or service agencies who are engaged to help provide the services.

7. How you can access or correct your information
