It describes how we collect, use and process your personal information and how, in doing so, we comply with our legal obligations to you.
This website’s content is aimed at people aged 18 years or over. Failing age verification will mean you cannot be registered or visit the website.
To enable us to do this, we will require you to provide us with your date of birth. We will then use this to confirm that you are aged 18 years or over.
We may need to ask for further information to verify your age in some cases. If this is necessary, we will contact you to explain why.

Some of the personal information we collect from you is required to fulfill our contractual and/or legal duties to you or others. Other items may simply be needed to ensure that our relationship can run smoothly.

We collect non-personal aggregated statistics data about visitors to the Website and traffic patterns. This information does not identify users in any personal capacity, and we do not use this information to build profiles on individual users: it just contains generalized information about the users of the website.
There are different bases that we rely on to use your personal information, namely:

Your personal information may be transferred outside Pakistan to the third parties described in Sharing your information with third parties.
We want to make sure that your personal information is stored and transferred in a way which is secure. We will, therefore only transfer data outside of US where it is compliant with data protection legislation, and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards concerning your data, for example:
We care about protecting your information. That’s why we put in place appropriate measures that are designed to prevent unauthorized access to, and misuse of your personal information.
We are committed to taking all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that we hold from misuse, loss, or unauthorized access. We do this by having a range of appropriate technical and organizational measures in place, including encryption measures and disaster recovery plans.
If you suspect any misuse or loss of or unauthorized access to your personal information, please let us know immediately by contacting us on the details provided at the end of this notice.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will apply our standard procedures and comply with legal requirements to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the website. Any transmission is at your own risk.
The website may contain links to and from other websites from time to time. If you follow a link to any of those sites, please note that they should have their privacy policies. Please check those privacy policies before you submit your information to those sites. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for those sites or their privacy policies.
If you have registered an account with us: we will store your personal information for as long as your account is open. If you no longer wish to hold an account with us, please email us or call us to delete your account. By doing so, we will delete your account and remove you from our mailing list if you are on there.
If you have signed up to receive email marketing from us: we will store your personal information for as long as you are subscribed to our email marketing list (unless your account has been closed). If you unsubscribe or are otherwise removed from our marketing list, we will keep your email address on our suppression list to ensure that we do not send you marketing emails.
If you have contacted us with a complaint or query: we will store your personal information for as long as is reasonably required to resolve your complaint or query.
The exceptions to the above are where:
When it is no longer necessary to retain your data, we will delete the personal information that we hold about you from our systems. After that time, we may aggregate the data (from which you cannot be identified) and retain it for analytical purposes.
You have many rights concerning your information under data protection law. Concerning certain rights, we may ask you for information to confirm your identity and, where applicable, to help us to search for your personal information. Except in rare cases, we will respond to you within one month from either (i) the date that we have confirmed your identity or (ii) where we do not need to do this because we already have this information, from the date we received your request.
Right to object
This right enables you to object to us processing your personal information where we do so for one of the following reasons:
Except for the purposes we are sure we can continue to process your personal information, we will temporarily stop processing your personal information in line with your objection until we have investigated the matter. If we agree that your rights justify your objection under data protection laws, we will permanently stop using your data for those purposes. Otherwise, we will provide you with our justification for why we need to continue using your data.
Right to withdraw consent.
Where we have obtained your consent to process your personal information for specific activities (for example, for marketing), you may withdraw this consent at any time, and we will cease to use your data for that purpose unless we consider that there is an alternative legal basis to justify our continued processing of your data for this purpose, in which case we will inform you of this condition. If you withdraw your consent, our use of your personal information before you withdraw is still lawful.
To withdraw your consent to marketing communications, please use the unsubscribe tool in the relevant communication or update your preferences in the account section on the website.
Right of access (Data Subject Access Requests)
You may ask us for a copy of the information we hold about you at any time and request us to modify, update or delete such information. If we provide you with access to the information we hold about you, we will not charge you for this unless permitted by law. If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost. We may refuse your request where we are legally permitted to do so. If we deny your request, we will always tell you why.
If you would like to request access to your information, it would assist us with dealing with your request if you could use the subject heading ‘Data Subject Access Request’, or quote this over the phone when contacting us. Please note that this is not mandatory, and we will still deal with any requests without this reference.
Right to erasure
You have the right to request that we “erase” your personal information in certain circumstances. Typically, this right exists where:
We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for erasure in limited circumstances, and we will always tell you our reason for doing so.
When complying with a valid request for data erasure, we will take all reasonably practicable steps to delete the relevant data.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal information in certain circumstances; for example if you dispute the accuracy of the personal information that we hold about you, you object to our processing of your personal information for our legitimate interests or you require us to keep it in connection with legal proceedings. If we have shared your personal information with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal information.
We may only process your information whilst its processing is restricted if we have your consent or are legally permitted to do so, for example, for storage purposes, to protect the rights of another individual or company, or in connection with legal proceedings.
Right to rectification
You have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal information that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal information with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. You may also request details of the third parties that we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete personal information to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.
You can access and update certain parts of your information by logging into your account on the website.
Right of data portability
If you wish, you have the right to transfer your personal information between service providers where we rely on your consent or the performance of your contract as the legal basis to use that information. In effect, this means that you can transfer the details we hold on you to another third party. To allow you to do so, we will provide you with your data in a commonly used machine-readable format so that you can transfer the data. Alternatively, we may directly transfer the data for you if technically possible.
Rights relating to automated decisions
In certain circumstances, you may contest a decision made about you based on automated processing.
Right to complain
How to exercise your rights
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please get in touch with us on the details provided under How to contact us. Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues that you raise.
We may make changes to this Privacy Notice at any time by posting a copy of the modified notice on the website or, where appropriate, by sending you an email with that notice. Any changes will take effect seven days after the date of our email or the date on which we post the modified terms on the website, whichever is earlier.
