DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We may share different kinds of personal data about you with:

  • third parties with whom Shareek is cooperating or intends to cooperate to fulfil the objectives and goals of Shareek (see below for further information);
  • third party service providers providing services on our behalf (see below for further information); or
  • a regulator, law enforcement body or judicial authority.

We may disclose your personal data to other governmental entities or programs which have objectives, strategies, and vision in common with Shareek or may assist Shareek in fulfilling its objectives and vision.

We may also disclose your personal data to third party service providers who require access to such information for the purpose of providing specific services to us. These third parties will generally only be able to access your data in order to provide us with their services and will not be able to use it for their own purposes.

We take reasonable measures to require that the organizations with whom we share personal information maintain the confidentiality of personal information in accordance with the applicable law, including regulatory requirements, and only use such information for the specific purpose for which we supply it to them.

COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

We may use cookies and similar tracking technologies (like web beacons and pixels) to access or store information. Specific information about how we use such technologies and how you can refuse certain cookies is set out in our Cookie Policy.

DATA STORAGE AND RETENTION

The data that we collect from you is stored on our servers. Our servers are located in third party data centers inside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. These third parties do not use or have access to your personal data for any purpose other than cloud storage and retrieval.

We will only keep your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by contractual obligation or law. If you want to learn more about our retention policy, you can contact us using the contact details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, there is always risk involved in sending information through any channel over the internet. You send information over the internet entirely at your own risk. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted over the internet and we do not warrant the security of any information, including personal data, which you transmit to us over the internet. You should only access the Platforms within a secure environment.

If you suspect any misuse or loss of, or unauthorized access to, your personal data, please let us know immediately.

CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track ("DNT") feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will update the practice in a revised version of this Privacy Policy. 

CHANGES AND UPDATES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We reserve the right to amend, update or alter this Privacy Policy at any time. Any such change shall take effect upon posting to the Platforms. Please check this page to ensure that you understand and are in compliance with the terms that apply at that time. Some of the provisions contained in this Privacy Policy may also be superseded by provisions or notices published elsewhere on our Platforms. Your continued use of the Website and/or Platforms following the posting of any changes to this Privacy Policy constitutes acceptance of those changes.

The information may include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, the region or general location where your computer or device is located, the browser type, operating system and other general usage information.
