When you use our Platform or services/products, you consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Policy.  As such, it is important that you read this Policy together with any other notices we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This Policy supplements other notices and/or policies and is not intended to override them.

      • Marketing and Communications datasuch as your preferences in receiving marketing from us and our third parties and communication preferences.
    • The data we collect is necessary for the adequate performance of the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you and this also allows us to comply with our legal obligations as a service provider. Without such data, we may not be able to provide you with access to the Platform or the services.
    • The personal data we hold about you must be accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your data changes during your relationship with us.

We do not knowingly or intend to collect any data from children under eighteen (18) years. Our Platform is only intended for use by users above the age of 18 years. We verify your age using your birthdate to ensure you are above 18 years and eligible to use our Platform. If you believe that we are processing personal information about a child inappropriately, we take this very seriously and urge you to contact us.

    • Where you give express consent or implied consent when you access our Platform, create an account on our Platform or register with us, contact us, send us feedback, order services or products via our Platform, and complete customer surveys or participate in competitions or community forums via our Platform we will automatically collect personal information. Further, we may also collect your data when you fill in a form, update or add information to your account, share your experience or reviews with us or use other features of the Platform. If you contact us by phone, we will collect the phone number you use to call Cafu. If you contact us by phone as a user of Cafu, we may collect additional information to verify your identity. Cafu will seek consent for use or disclosure of your personal information at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent with respect to use or disclosure may be sought after the information has been collected but before use (for example, when Cafu wants to use information for a purpose not previously identified). Cafu will make a reasonable effort to ensure that the individual is advised of the purposes for which the information will be used. To make the consent meaningful, the purposes will be stated in such a manner that the individual can understand how the information will be used or disclosed.
    • When you use certain features of the Platform, we may collect information about your precise or approximate location as determined through data such as your IP address or mobile device’s GPS to offer you an improved user experience. Most mobile devices allow you to control or disable the use of location services for applications in the device’s settings menu. Cafu may also indirectly collect this information even when you are not using the Platform if this connection is enabled through your settings or device permissions.
    • Cafu may collect information, including personal information, that others provide about you when they use the Platform, or obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the Platform and the payment services.

    • We may also collect certain information by automated means using technologies such as cookies, web beacons, pixels, browser analysis tools, server logs, and mobile identifiers. In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is only used in a non-identifiable manner without reference to personal information. For example, we may use the information we collect to better understand our Platform traffic patterns and to optimize users' experience. In some cases, we associate the information we collect using cookies and other technology with your personal information. Our business or technology partners may also use these tracking technologies on the Platform or engage others to track your behaviour on our behalf. While you may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings, the Cafu Platform currently does not respond to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application due to a lack of standardization regarding how that signal should be interpreted. 
    • If you link, connect, or log in to your account with a third-party service (e.g., Google, or Facebook, Smartcar, or the relevant payment gateway platform), the third-party service may send us information such as your registration, friends list, and profile information from that service. This information varies and is controlled by that service or as authorized by you via your privacy settings for that service. As we do not operate such services and considering they are outside of our control, we are not responsible for the security or privacy of any information collected by other websites or other services.
