Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We at Zafin and its group of companies (“Zafin”) are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) you share with us.

Zafin has established this Online Privacy Policy so that you can understand the care with which we intend to treat your Personal Information.

Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address and an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit Zafin’s

Web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the Web, we may transfer that Information within Zafin or to Zafin’s third-party service providers, across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. The information will be used for contacting you or your organization by Zafin or Zafin partners or agents, to explore potential business relationships. If you do not want us to contact you or use the information in any manner, please let us know by mailing us at privacy@zafin.com.

Zafin strives to comply with all applicable laws around the globe that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, Zafin intends to adhere to the principles set forth in this Online Privacy Policy even if, in connection with the above, we transfer your Personal Information to countries that may not require an “adequate” level of protection for your Personal Information. In other words, our goal is to provide protection for your Personal Information no matter where that Personal Information is collected, transferred, or retained. If you are governed by laws that place restrictions on the transfer of Personal Information between countries under any circumstance, you are advised not to provide us with your Personal Information.

Choice

You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to Zafin. The notice we intend to provide where Zafin collects Personal Information on the Web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of Zafin’s websites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you.

If you chose to have a relationship with Zafin, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship. Else we will be contacting you to provide with information and updates on Zafin to keep you and your organization abreast of the developments at Zafin.

Security
