The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network.
If you are unable to pay charges for the services or fraudulent or other criminal activity is suspected relating to your account or the delivery of an item to or from you, we may be provided with information by credit reference agencies and organisations that prevent and detect fraud or other crimes.
We are also working closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies) and may receive information about you from them.

Uses made of any feedback you leave on the Company service
The feedback that you leave on the Company service helps us to improve the service that we offer and respond to customer needs appropriately.
If you post a review of our service through our website, we may post your review on the Company website and we may use the feedback in any Company marketing, analysis or promotional material. We will strive to maintain your anonymity by posting only your first name and the city.
We may ask you to share your review with your network on social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We’d really appreciate it if you could help us spread the word about the Company via social networks, but to do so is entirely optional and will require you to authenticate your account with the social network. If you engage with the Company on social media websites, such as by “Liking” us or by providing feedback on any our pages on any social media website, such as the Company pages on Facebook or Twitter, the Company may collect your personal information from that social media site subject to your privacy settings on that site. Additionally, your social media profile information, including your photograph, may be displayed on Company’s social media page or the Company website along with your review of the service. We may also publish the review you have left on the Company page to your social medial page, subject to your social network privacy settings. Please refer to your privacy settings on your social media site to understand what information the social media site will share with third parties like the Company.
By submitting your information you consent to the use of that information as set out in this policy.

Transfers of personal information outside of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka
The personal information we collect may be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and the continent of Asia. Some of these jurisdictions offer differing levels of protection in respect of personal information and may, in certain instances, be more or less protective than in Asia. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this policy.

Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
How we protect your data
The Company cares about the security of your information and uses commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information we collect and that we share with our service providers. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our servers, nor can we guarantee that information that users supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
