How we use Your Personal Data
As Data Controller:

We use the Personal Information we collect only in compliance with this Privacy Policy. We will never sell your Personal Information to any third party. We will never publish your Personal Information on our Website without your explicit consent. In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, we may use your Personal Information to: (a) assist you with service, partnership or employment request; (b) send to you information that we think may be of interest to you by post, email, or other means; (c) send you marketing communications relating to our business, current services, new services or promotions; ((d) respond to an enquiry, questions or concern that you may have raised; (e) perform analytics and create database to improve your browsing experience and enhance the functionality of our services or (f) send you on email.

We may share Personal Information with trusted service providers or our affiliates for payment processing, supplementing the information you provide us in order to provide you with better service, account administration, perform statistical analysis, provide marketing assistance, host the Website, index user profile pages and usernames as part of the URL, technical and customer support. Any third parties receiving your Personal Information from us are prohibited from using your Personal Information except for these purposes, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

After you place an order on our Website you may need to make payment for the services you have ordered. In order to process your payment we use a number of third party payment processors. Your payment will be processed by the payment provider you choose to process your payment via a payment gateway. If you give us banking, debit card, credit card or other payment mode details, we solely use such details to process payment refunds, if any, to you. The third party payment processors we use also collect, use and process your information, including payment information, in accordance with their respective privacy policies.

To ensure that the security and integrity of the Website is safeguarded, Kolabtree may monitor your Personal Information. Kolabtree may under certain circumstances engage a trusted third party service provider for the purpose of managing the technical operations involved in hosting the Website.

We will share the Personal Information, if disclosure was required by law, rule or regulation or was in response to a valid order of a court or authorized agency of government or other legal process. We may be required to process Personal information for legal and compliance reasons, such as the prevention, detection, or investigation of a crime, loss prevention or prevention of fraud. We may also use Personal Information to meet our internal and external audit requirements and for information security purposes.

International Transfer of Personal Information:

To facilitate our global operations, we may transfer and access your Personal Information across geographical borders to our subsidiaries or affiliates or service providers working on our behalf in other countries with different data protection laws that may not be on par with that of the origin country. A transfer of personal information has a broad meaning and occurs when information is communicated, moved, accessed or otherwise sent to another country. This Privacy Policy shall apply even if we transfer Personal Information to countries outside your country.

To the extent that it may be necessary, and solely for the purposes of providing the service available on the Website to you, we may disclose to such third party any of your Personal Information that may be necessary for the procurement of services from the third party.

In cases where Personal Information would need to be transferred outside of a country where Kolabtree operates, towards other jurisdictions, specific requirements may apply for such transfer to be allowed. We may also transfer Personal Information to a third party located outside your country of origin without having to implement the above measures if you have given consent to us for the transfer of your Personal Information.

As of now, your Personal Information is being transferred via internet to a third-party service provider Microsoft Azure in either North Europe, Singapore, India, USA or Japan for hosting/back-up the data on cloud. The data is encrypted at rest and in transit.

By using the services, you expressly agree to the transfers of Personal Information to third countries where this requires your consent.

Upon written request from the Controller, we agree to delete or return all the Personal Information or data to the Controller after the end of the provision of services relating to processing, unless there is a legal obligation or basis for us to retain a copy of such information or data for further processing.
