2. Use of Information
3. Sharing Your Information
We do not rent or sell your personal contact information (such as your email address associated with your account registration) to third-parties to use for their own marketing purposes. Our information sharing with third-parties generally fall into the following categories and purposes:
a. Agents, Contractors, and Service Providers: We may share your information with our agents, e-commerce partners, and contractors or other service providers as needed to carry out the performance and functionality of the Sites, fulfill your requests or authorized commercial transactions or provide customer support. For example, we may use business partners to help us design and operate our Sites and/or Applications and provide services to support the Sites and/or Applications. We may also hire a company to run certain Sites, Applications, provide data storage and processing services, or help us analyze our data. These business partners may have access to the personal information that we keep, but only so that they may perform these tasks on our behalf. We do not allow these business partners to make any independent commercial use of the individually identifiable information that we store, to share such data with third parties or from making the data publicly available.
b. Analytics and Usage: We reserve the right to license or sell aggregated information to third parties such as advertisers, professionals, and other businesses for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes, but this information will not contain your individually identifiable personal information.

We may also disclose certain personal information to a company as part of the planning or review for a potential merger, acquisition or transfer of assets.
f. Other Users: Information that you post publicly on the Sites and/or Applications will be made publicly available to other users of the Sites and/or Applications. The information that you publicly post to the Sites and/or Applications is intended for public consumption, including reviews and comments. By posting on the Sites and/or Applications, you agree to permit us to disclose such material you post.
g. Investigations: We may investigate and disclose information from or about you, as permitted by applicable law, if we believe that such investigation or disclosure is (a) necessary to comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; (b) helpful to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Sites; or (c) helpful to protect our rights, reputation, property, or that of our users, subsidiaries, or the public.
When you join the Sites by signing up for an account, as part of the Service you may receive emails from us that may be of interest to you as a user. We may also ask you to give your consent to receiving text message, push notification and e-mail communications from us. You can manage your email and notice preferences in account settings. You may opt-out of receiving emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, however, you cannot opt out of receiving transactional e-mails about your account or any services you have requested or received from us. You may opt out entirely of receiving any text messages – promotional, transactional or otherwise – from us. Additionally, by joining, you are agreeing to receive communications from other users within the Sites and/or Applications.
We may provide an e-mail/ text messaging service for alerting consignees that a consignment is on its way and the expected delivery time frame. We may also use the consignee’s contact information from time to time to send the consignee a promotional message about our services, and will always give the consignee the option to decline any future promotional messages.
5. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
You may opt-out of tracking by third parties for certain advertising purposes (as discussed) which can help you control targeted advertising by third-parties that track your activities across Sites. It may be possible to disable certain Cookies through your device or browser settings. The method for disabling cookies may vary by device and browser, but can usually be found in preferences or security settings. However, doing so may affect your ability to use the Sites and/or Applications. If you are not comfortable with the above uses of Cookies, please do not use these Sites and/or Applications.
Do-Not-Track Signals: Please note we do not change system behaviour within the Sites in response to browser requests not to be tracked. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies or opting out of ad networks).
6. Third Party Advertisements
As noted, we work with third parties such as network advertisers to serve advertisements on third-party websites or other media, and to evaluate the success of our advertising campaigns, including Facebook, Google, and others (both Facebook and Google offer additional ways to opt out of certain advertising activities, and maintain their own privacy policies that address their interest-based advertising services). We also may work with third parties to display ads on our Sites.

Further, you may modify any account information that you have submitted by logging into your account. You may review, update, correct or delete the personal or other information in your account at any time. If you would like us to remove your information from our records, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have a legal obligation to retain the record

8. Account Termination and Data Retention
You can close your account at any time by going to account settings or by emailing us at email@example.com. When you close your account, you will cease to provide ongoing or future data to us. However, unless prohibited by applicable law, postings or comments you provided to the Sites prior to closing your account, will remain public.
9. Protection of Your Data
We have implemented security safeguards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure – so we cannot guarantee its absolute security. You should take certain steps to protect your account and personal information as well, such as by choosing a strong password, if applicable, and keeping such password private to prevent others from being able to access the Sites /Applications in your name, and logging out of your account when you are finished using it.
You should also be on guard for “phishing” scams and similar types of identity theft schemes. We do not and will not, at any time, request your Bkash, Nagad pin number, credit card information, your account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
If there is a breach of security involving your personal data that requires notification, you agree that we may notify you about the breach via email or by a conspicuous posting on these Sites / Applications. We will make the notification without unreasonable delay, consistent with the legitimate needs of law enforcement and any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
If you have any questions about security on our websites, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
