4.1  Information about our customers is an important part of our business. We share customer information only as described below and with group companies that follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Policy:

(a)  Affiliated and Partner Businesses: To offer you our Services, we may engage with affiliated or other businesses that we may or may not control (e.g. logistics businesses used to deliver products to you, marketing companies, payments processers to process online transactions etc.). We will inform you when an affiliated or partner business is involved in your transactions and when we will need to share your Information related to those transactions with them.

You understand that it is important that such affiliated and partner businesses have access to the relevant Information to perform their functions. We will ensure that these affiliated and partner businesses do not use your Information for other purposes. We may also receive Information from these affiliated and partner businesses (e.g. updated delivery and address information), which we may use (e.g. to correct our records and deliver your next purchase).

(c)  Protection of Our Site and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe such a release is appropriate, necessary or required to comply with the law and law enforcement investigations and to protect the rights, property or safety of our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. However, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information provided by you for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Please check these policies before you submit any personal data or other information to these websites.

5.  STORAGE OF YOUR INFORMATION

The Information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the UAE. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the UAE who work for us or an affiliated or partner business. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.

6.   SECURITY

6.1  We take reasonable steps to ensure that your Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

6.2 We may, for example, use encryption technology to secure your Information during transmission to our Site as well as external firewall and on-host firewall technology to prevent network level attacks. 

6.3 It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your devices used to access our Services. You are responsible for keeping your password confidential. For example, ensure that you sign off when you have finished using a shared device.
