All the information that is collected by us in the manner provided herein this policy shall be utilized to improve our Website’s services and features, and provide you a smooth and efficient experience, both as a user of our Website and as a customer of our services. Your Information shared with us may be used for data analysis for gauging various meta-data of aggregated Information supplied by our users collectively in order to drive better services and user experience. We may share such Information with other third parties that may be authorized by us for conducting said data analysis.
1.6 We may anonymize your Personal Information so that you cannot be individually identified and provide that anonymized information to our partners, affiliates, or business associates for above-mentioned Purposes. For example, we allow advertisers to choose the demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and you agree that we may use any of the information we have collected from you in non-personally identifiable form to allow our advertisers to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements. We might use the fact you have purchased or inquired about a certain item or Service for instance, to show you advertisements for the company that sells that item, but we will not tell that company who you are.
2. TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED 2.1 Information you provide to us:
a. Registration information you provide when you create an account, including your first name and surname, country of residence, gender, date of birth, email address, username and password.
b. Transaction information you provide when you request information or purchase a product or service from us, whether on our sites or through our applications, including your postal address, telephone number, credit card, debit card and payment information.

f. Information regarding your personal preferences and interests that you may supply to us.
g. Location information when you visit our sites or use our applications, including location information either provided by a mobile device interacting with one of our sites or applications (including through beacon technologies), or associated with your IP address, where we are permitted by law to process this information.
2.2 Information collected automatically (aggregated information that ensures anonymity):
a. Usage information, such as number of visitors to the Site, availing the Services and the frequency of their usage of the Site and or the Services.
b. Non-personally identifiable browsing behaviour on our Site and Services as well as other third party sites and services.
3. HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION 3.1 We collect information when you provide to us in the manner as above-mentioned. Additionally we collect information in an aggregate form which is anonymised and cannot be used to identify you or your usage of the Site and/or the Services.
3.2 COOKIES: Whenever you interact with our Website, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, “cookie” information, and the page you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your computer or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages in our Website are visited and by how many people. Cookies are also used to store your log-in credentials for facilitating faster access to our Website and/services. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your computer’s or device’s acceptance of cookies, but doing so may prevent you from taking advantage of our Website’s best features.
3.4 When we collect usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website and to which pages within the Website), we only use such data in aggregate form, in a manner that assures your anonymity. We may provide this aggregate usage information to our partners; our partners may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Site, so that our partners, too, can endeavor to provide you with an optimal online experience. For example, we may place a cookie on your device that records what products you have viewed on our Website, and then provide that information, in non-personally-identifiable form, to a third party website, to allow such website to show you ads for similar products that are available from us or from third parties.
3.5 WEB BEACONS: We shall also deliver a file to you through the Website (known as a "web beacon") from an advertising network we have contracted with. Web beacons allow advertising networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. These beacons will not collect Personal Information from you or through us, but they shall collect information about your browsing behaviour and therefore they may, for example, log that you have viewed a certain item/Service on our Website, and then show you an ad for similar items or services when you browse to another website. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network's servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Many ad networks participate in the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"), a cooperative of online marketing and analytics companies committed to building consumer awareness and establishing responsible business and data management practices and standards, and such NAI members may allow you to opt-out of cookies or beacons they deliver. Again, we do not control the policies of any third parties, including advertising networks.
4. EMAIL & OTHER COMMUNICATIONS E-mail and other communications: We may contact you, by email or other means. For example, we may send you promotional offers on behalf of other businesses, or communicate with you about your use of the Website. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please indicate your preference by changing your account settings accordingly. We may store and record information specific to you when you correspond with us on our contact mail ids, for the purposes of facilitating any request by you or for recording any grievances raised by you.
5. USE & SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION: We neither rent nor sell or share your Personal Information in personally identifiable form to anyone. We share your Personal Information in personally identifiable form with third parties only as described below:
5.1 Affiliated Entities: In certain situations, businesses or third party websites we’re affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you through the Site (either alone or jointly with us). You can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and we will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that we deem it related to such transaction or service. One such service may include the ability for you to automatically transmit information from your Boon Castle account to an account on a third party website or service , such as Facebook. We have no control over the policies and practices of third party websites or businesses as to privacy or anything else, so if you choose to take part in any transaction or service relating to an affiliated website or business, please review all such business’s or websites’ policies.
5.2 Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we inform you otherwise, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what we deem necessary to assist us in performing the above-mentioned tasks.
5.3 Other Users: Certain user profile information, including without limitation a user’s username and the image content that such user has uploaded to the website may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Site or address your request for our services. Any content you upload to your public user profile, along with any Personal Information or content that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner other users can view (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, etc.) becomes publicly available, and can be collected and used by others. Your username may also be displayed to other users if and when you post comments or upload images through the Website and other users can contact you through such comments. If you sign into the Services through Facebook Connect, your list of “friends” from Facebook may be automatically imported to the Services, and such “friends,” if they are also registered users of the Services, may be able to access certain non-public information you have entered in your Services user profile. Again, we do not control the policies and practices of any other third party site or service.
5.4 Business Transfers: We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information (which may include your Personal Information) is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Also, if we (or substantially all of our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, Personal Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
5.5 Legal Compliance: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with laws; enforce or apply our conditions of use and/or other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Boon Castle, our employees, our users, or others. We may exchange information with other companies and organizations (including governmental authorities) for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
6.2 Additionally, the responsibility to ensure security of your information that is stored on our servers is shared by you as well. Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. If you access your account via Facebook Connect, you may have additional or different sign-on protections through Facebook. Similar will be the case for other social networking sites. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password (or other sign-on protections) appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
