Under the applicable laws, User(s) have the right of access to personal information held by Bhasho and to request updating / correcting the information.

Bhasho uses "cookies" to store specific information about User(s) and track User(s) visits to the Sites. A "cookie" is a small amount of data that is sent to User’s browser and stored on User’s device. If User does not deactivate or erase the cookie, each time User uses the same device to access the Platform, our services will be notified of User visit to the Platform and in turn Bhasho may have knowledge of User(s) visit and the pattern of User’s usage.
Generally, Bhasho use cookies to identify User(s) and enable Bhasho to i) access User’s Registration Information or Account Information so User(s) do not have to re-enter it; ii) gather statistical information about usage by Users(s); iii) research visiting patterns and help target advertisements based on User(s) interests; iv) assist Bhasho’s partners to track User(s) visits to the Platform and process orders; and v) track progress and participation on the Platform.
User(s) can determine if and how a cookie will be accepted by configuring the browser which is installed in User’s device. If User(s) chooses, User(s) can change those configurations. If User(s) reject all cookies by choosing the cookie-disabling function, User may be required to re-enter information on the Platform more often and certain features of the Platform may be unavailable.

The Platform and its contents are not targeted to minors (those under the age of 18). However, Bhasho has no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who access our Platform. If a minor has provided Bhasho with personal information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact Bhasho’s Legal Department at the address set out in clause 11 below to remove the information.

Bhasho employs commercially reasonable security methods to prevent unauthorized access to the Platform, to maintain data accuracy and to ensure the correct use of the information Bhasho holds. No data transmission over the internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while Bhasho tries to protect the information Bhasho holds, Bhasho cannot guarantee the security of any information the User transmits to Bhasho and User(s) do so at their own risk.

Bhasho takes every reasonable step to ensure that User’s personal information is processed ‘as is’. You may access, correct, and update your personal information directly through the functionalities provided on the Platform.

Please note, however, that withdrawal of consent will not be retroactive and will be in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy, related terms of use, and applicable laws. In the event you withdraw the consent given to us under this Privacy Policy, such withdrawal may hamper your access to the Platform or restrict the provision of our services to you for which Bhasho consider that information to be necessary.

Bhasho retains your personal information in accordance with applicable laws, for a period no longer than is required for the purpose for which it was collected or as required under any applicable law. However, Bhasho may retain data related to you if it believes it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, to enable Bhasho to exercise its legal rights and/or defend against legal claims or if required by law or for other legitimate purposes.
