All this information is kept track of and gathered with the help of cookies. A usual set of customer info is likely to collect things such as names, addresses (relevant only when you place an order for a product/service and complete a purchase), cell phone numbers, IP addresses, and geographical locations (only if you decide to put this information up on your online profile with us).
Some other types of information collected include the following.

Important Terms That Need to Be Understood

Following are some of the major terms that all customers should be able to understand fully.
- Personal Data
This term refers to all such information that relates to an identified individual or one who can be identified on the basis of this info. A person who is identifiable is someone whose identity can be confirmed, whether directly or indirectly, by referring to an identifier.
This identifier could be the person’s name, identification number, location info, or something similar. Other factors that play a role in this regard include the genetic, physiological, economic, mental, physical, social, or cultural identity of a person.
This refers to any and all functions that are carried out on anyone’s personal data or groups of personal data belonging to more than one person. This might be done with the help of automated means or otherwise. The process typically includes collecting, organizing, retrieving, recording, storing, structuring, altering, modifying, consulting, or disclosing data by means of transmission, dissemination, aligning, restricting, combining, erasing, destroying, or any other such method.
The term “controller” can be used to refer to any fully grown natural person, government agency, public authority, or any other such entity that has the mandate to determine the purpose and method of personal data processing.
A “recipient” refers to a natural person, public authority, government agency, or any other similar body to whom a client or customer’s personal data can be provided. It may be a third party or not. With regard to public authorities, they will process all data in accordance with rules and regulations enacted to ensure data protection and privacy of the individuals concerned.
Personal Data Restrictions
Unless it has been stipulated in any declarations regarding data safety and protection, all types of personal data of the clients/customers will be wiped out if it is no longer needed for the purpose(s) for which it was gathered in the first place. It will also be erased if it is not needed and there aren’t any sort of legal obligations that demand that the data/info be kept on record.
Furthermore, all data will be erased if a customer/client makes a request for it. We will only keep such types of data in our system if there are some legal obligations of any sort which have to be honored. Otherwise, once some data becomes redundant or surplus to requirements, we will let it go.
