Phroogal does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties.

Phroogal may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is transferred to the third party. Phroogal may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, deliver ads to you on our site, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Phroogal, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Phroogal may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within Phroogal, in order to determine what Phroogal services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Phroogal to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Phroogal will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Phroogal or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Phroogal; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Phroogal, or the public.

Publicly Available Information

The Website includes interactive sections such as commenting areas where you can post comments. Please be aware that any information disclosed in these areas becomes public information and caution should be exercised when deciding to disclose your personal information.

Anonymous Data

From time to time, the Website may use anonymous data, which does not identify you alone or when combined with data from other parties. This data may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Use of Cookies

The Phroogal website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Phroogal pages, or register with Phroogal site or services, a cookie helps Phroogal to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Phroogal website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Phroogal features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Phroogal services or websites you visit.

Security of Your Personal Information

Phroogal secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

Children Under 16

We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age.

Phroogal does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this website. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a Site user is under age 13, we will promptly delete any personal information in that user’s account.

Opt-Out & Unsubscribe

We respect your privacy and give you an opportunity to opt-out of receiving announcements of certain information. Users may opt-out of receiving any or all communications from Phroogal by contacting us here: Email: info@phroogal.com

Your California Privacy Rights

This section contains disclosures required by the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and applies only to “personal information” that is subject to that law. 

California Residents: Pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2019 (“CCPA”), you have certain rights with respect to your personal information.  For the purposes of this section, personal information is used as defined in the CCPA. Phroogal reserves the right to verify all requests made pursuant to the CCPA.

How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals

Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to online services you visit. California Business and Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how we respond to “do not track” browser settings. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, we currently do not take action in response to these signals. For more information on “do not track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

EU Users’ Rights under the GDPR

If you are located in the EU, you have certain rights regarding your personal data, including the right to access, correct, delete, or transfer your personal data, and the right to withdraw consent.

International Transfers

We are subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that protect your personal data. Where we transfer your data to third parties outside of the EEA, we will ensure that certain safeguards are in place to ensure a similar degree of security for your personal data.

As such:

  • We may transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission have approved as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data; or
  • If we use US-based providers that are part of EU-US Privacy Shield, we may transfer data to them, as they have equivalent safeguards in place; or
  • Where we use certain service providers who are established outside of the EEA, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.

Data Security

We have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorization. We also allow access to your personal data only to those employees and partners who have a business need to know such data. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they must keep it confidential.

We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach if we are legally required to.

Data Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

When deciding what the correct time is to keep the data for we look at its amount, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the processing purposes, if these can be achieved by other means and legal requirements.

For tax purposes the law requires us to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they stop being customers.

In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Your Legal Rights

Under data protection laws you have rights in relation to your personal data that include the right to request access, correction, erasure, restriction, transfer, to object to processing, to portability of data and (where the lawful ground of processing is consent) to withdraw consent.

Changes to This Statement

Phroogal will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect company and customer feedback. Phroogal encourages you to periodically review this Policy to be informed of how Phroogal is protecting your information.
