Data Collected for Automatic Sign-in
To be able to provide a smooth user experience, the app has an option called “Automatic Sign in”. When you use this option to login, we collect your primary email from your device (android phone). We then use this email to login automatically without having you to type-in your email or other details. The email gotten is used only and only for the purpose of providing the service to you. We do NOT sell any of your data such as this email to any third party. We also do NOT share any of your data to any third parties. All your data is kept securely on secure servers.
WHERE WE STORE PERSONAL DATA
The Personal Data we obtain from you may be moved to and stored at a destination within Uganda or to secure servers out of Uganda. Staff members operating within Uganda who work for or on behalf of us may process this information. Such staff members may, among other things, be involved in the processing of payment details, the provision of support services and the delivery of your request(s) for us to provide the Service.
Without limiting the foregoing, you agree that Personal Data we obtain from you may be processed by our service providers based in, countries outside of Uganda for the purposes of providing you with the Service. Such countries may not have laws offering the same level of protection for Personal Data as those in Uganda; however where such transfers of data occur, we will take steps to prevent the transfer of Personal Data without adequate safeguards being put in place and will ensure that your Personal Data collected and transferred internationally is afforded the same level of protection as it would be inside the Uganda.
We store the Personal Data you provide us with on our secure servers. In the event of us giving you (or you/they choosing) a password which grants you/them access to specific areas within our Website or Service, it remains your/their responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of this password. This includes the responsibility to refrain from sharing your/their password with other parties.
As the transmission of data via the Internet cannot be assumed completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any of your data transmitted to our Website or Service; you are therefore responsible for any risk associated with such transmission. We will however at all times take all reasonable steps to ensure the transmission of your data is executed as securely as possible, and upon receipt of your/their data we will continue at all times to enforce strict security procedures and features in an attempt to prevent any unauthorized access.
