WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE GATHER?
All the information we collect is related to providing the Store bridge service and its features. Some of this collected information is necessary for you to shop on StoreBridge and some information is required for us to provide better services to you – e.g knowing your current location to show you brands around you, information that can help us understand your interest & taste to show you collections or deals you’ll find most interesting. We also try to understand the best time to provide you with hyperlocal service, gauge relevance to your content preferences or personalized recommendations based on your demographic, purchase history, current location, seasonal occasions and time of the day.
Let us explore these points in detail.
The personal information you share with us: When you sign up to use StoreBridge, we securely receive and store the information you enter. This could be your full name, email address, password, mobile number, gender and payment details. You will be able to use StoreBridge even if you opt-out of sharing certain personal information but then you may lose out on some of our advanced features. We never show or disclose your payment information to any third party without your consent, apart from the payment gateway and the bank, and this data management shall always be Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) guideline compliant, updated and according to latest industry standards.
If you connect to StoreBridge using credentials from a Third Party Application (as defined in the Terms of service) (e.g., Facebook), you authorize us to collect your authentication information, such as your username and encrypted access credentials. We may also collect other information available on or through your third-party application account, including, for example, your name, profile picture, country, hometown, email address, date of birth, gender, friends’ names, profile pictures, and networks.
We will never scan or import your contacts unless you explicitly allow us to. If you choose to do so, we will only use your contact information to help you find friends or contacts who also use StoreBridge.
We will be clear with you about how and when we might share information.
Automatic information: In addition to the personal information you share with us, we receive and store certain types of information when you use StoreBridge. Like many common websites or mobile applications, we obtain certain types of information when you interact with our services or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of StoreBridge on other third-party services. This information often includes,
Device-specific information such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number.
Historical details of how you used our service, such as your search queries. This enables us to make suggestions based on your general location, like brands around you or relevant promotions.
Broad, non-specific location, which we derive from your IP address.
Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
Cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your StoreBridge account.
Location information: For us to show you products around you, we collect and process information about your current location. We use technologies like IP address, Wi-Fi, GPS, beacons and other sensors for this purpose. This may also, for example, provide StoreBridge with information on connected devices, Wi-Fi access points and nearby cell towers.
Unique application numbers: Our service includes a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to our servers when you install or uninstall the StoreBridge app or when it periodically contacts our servers, for automatic updates.
Local storage: To serve you relevant content when you use StoreBridge, we may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
Cookies and similar technologies: We and our partners may use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit our service, and this may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device. We may also use such technologies to receive, store and share information when you use StoreBridge with our partners, such as advertising services, third-party applications or Stofeatures that may appear on other sites.
E-mail, SMS and In-App communications: We love to proactively reach out to our users to inform you about service updates, new collections/brands and other such relevant information related to the StoreBridge service. To help us make these e-mails/SMS/In-App communications (push notifications or interstitials) more useful and interesting, we often receive and analyze information on how you interact with these communications. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.
Information from other sources: We may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
In the Profile/My Account section, we indicate the controls and relevant settings associated with your StoreBridge account.

If you sign up on the StoreBridge service (as defined in the Terms of Service) and/or purchase item/s (as defined in the Terms of Service), through StoreBridge , your credit or debit card information (such as card type and expiration date) and other financial data that we need to process your payment may be collected and stored by us and/or the payment processors with which we work. We may also collect some limited information, such as your postal code and delivery address, mobile number, and details of your transaction history, all of which are necessary to provide the service. In addition, the payment processors generally provide us with some limited information related to you, such as a unique token that enables you to make additional purchases using the information they’ve stored, and your card type, expiration date, and certain digits of your card number.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then our partner Payment Gateway stores your Credit Card/Debit Card data which is encrypted in compliance with industry-standard Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only for the duration of your purchase transaction.
Please remember that certain information is always publicly available, which means that it can be accessed by third-party applications through our APIs and developer tools. Based on your permissions, some additional information can be shared with third-party applications and with others through third-party applications. For example, you can use your settings to controls notifications you receive from StoreBridge .

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Sri Lanka and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in India, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under Indian legislation.
We may display advertisements from third parties and other content that links to third-party websites. We cannot control or be held responsible for third-parties’ privacy practices and content. Please read their privacy policies to find out how they collect and process your personal information.

In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the service after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please make sure you read any such notice carefully.
If our services are acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to provide the same service to you.
If you do not wish to continue using the service under the new version of the policy, you may terminate your use of the service as outlined in the previous section, under ‘How do I withdraw my consent?’.
