It is your responsibility to read this Privacy Policy ("Policy") thoroughly. Should you decide that you are not pleased by the Policy, do not use the Website.

Collected Information

We may collect two types of data and information from you.

The first type of information is un-identified and non-identifiable information pertaining to you, which may be made available or gathered via your use of the Website ("Non-personal Information"). We are not aware of the identity from which the Non-personal Information is collected.

We may also collect information about your activity on the Website (e.g., how many users visited the Website, which pages were viewed, etc.

The second type of information is individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable effort identify an individual ("Personal Information"). Such information may include:

For avoidance of doubt, if we combine Personal Information with Non-personal Information, the combined information will be treated as Personal Information as long as it remains combined.

Service providers – service providers that were hired to provide certain services for us and are under the strict confidentiality and privacy obligations may receive the information.

Legal reasons – the information may be disclosed when required by law or in circumstances that we deem in good faith the disclosure is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding or to protect Somoto and its users or third parties rights.

In addition to the purposes listed in this Policy, we may share Personal Information with our recipients for any of the following purposes: (i) processing Personal Information to assist us with our business operations; and (ii) performing research, technical diagnostics, personalization and analytics.

Security

Somoto incorporates high standards to protect the collected information. Somoto shall continue to use reasonable commercial efforts to ensure the protection of the information. Notwithstanding the above, please keep in mind that no data transmission over the Internet can be protected 100% from intrusions.
