Privacy Policy

Version: effective on 11 April 2022. Privacy Policy for USERS

This Privacy Policy explains how BHO Network and its Partner collects, uses, shares, and protects user information obtained and/or from our mobile application (the “Mobile App”). When BHO Network asks for certain personal information from users, it is because BHO Network is required by law to collect this information or it is relevant for specified purposes. Any non-required information you provide to us is done so voluntarily. You decided whether to provide us with this non-required information; you may not be able to access or utilize all of our Services if you choose not to. By using the Site or the Mobile App, you consent to the data practices described in this Privacy Policy. On occasion, BHO Network and its Partner may revise this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in law or our personal data collection and use practices. If material changes are made to this Privacy Policy, the changes will be announced by posting on the site. BHO Network will ask for your consent before using your information for any purpose that is not covered in this Privacy Policy.

When you create a BHO Network Account, you may be asked to provide us with personal information that includes your contact information (Email Address, phone number, name, and password).

This entails collecting formal identification.

BHO Network may also need additional commercial and/or identification information from you. In providing the personal data of any individual (other than yourself) to us during your use of our Services, you promise that you have obtained consent from such individual to disclose their personal data to us, as well as their consent to our collection, use, and disclosure of such personal data, for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

Information BHO Network receives from other sources

BHO Network may receive information about you if you use any of the other websites BHO Network operates or the other services BHO Network provides. BHO Network is also working closely with third parties and may receive information about you from them. For example:

The social media network will provide us with access to certain information that you have provided to them, including your name, profile image, and e-mail address. BHO Network uses such information, together with any other information you directly provide to us when registering or using our Services, to create your account and to communicate with you about the information, products, and services that you request from us. You may also be able to specifically request that BHO Network have access to the contacts in your social media account so that you can send a referral link to your family and friends.

BHO Network does not have a published list of all of the third parties with whom BHO Network shares your data, as this would be heavily dependent on your specific use of our Services. However, if you would like further information about who BHO Network has shared your data with or to be provided with a list specific to You, you can request this by writing to support@bholdus.com and its Partner.

Where BHO Network stores your personal data

The data that BHO Network collects from you may be transferred to and stored at a destination in Amazon Web Services (AWS). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the AWS who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff might be engaged in, among other things, the fulfillment of your payment order, the processing of your payment details, and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing, or processing. BHO Network will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Sharing your data outside of the AWS

In order to provide our Services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to transfer your data to third parties that are based outside of Amazon Web Services. In these cases, BHO Network ensures that both ourselves and our Partners take adequate and appropriate technical, physical, and organizational security measures to protect your data. BHO Network also ensures BHO Network has appropriate contractual protections in place with these third parties.

Profiling and Automated Decision Making

BHO Network may use some instances of your data to customize our Services and the information BHO Network provides to you and address your needs - such as your country of address and transaction history. When BHO Network does this, BHO Network takes all necessary measures to ensure that your privacy and security are protected - and BHO Network only uses pseudonymized data wherever possible. This activity has no legal effect on you.

As part of being a highly technical and innovative company, BHO Network may use Automated Decision Making (ADM) to improve your experience or help fight financial crime. For example, so that BHO Network can provide you with fast and efficient service, BHO Network may use ADM to verify your identity documents or to confirm the accuracy of the information you have provided to us. None of our ADM processes have a legal effect on you.

Data Retention

BHO Network and its Partner may be required by law (if any) to store some of your personal and transactional data beyond the closure of your Account with us. Your data is only accessed internally on a need-to-know basis, and it will only be accessed or processed if absolutely necessary. BHO Network will always delete data that is no longer required by relevant law or jurisdiction in which BHO Network operates.

Your rights

You have the right to ask us not to contact you for marketing purposes by contacting us at support@bholdus.com. You have the right to correct any personal information BHO Network holds on you that is inaccurate, incorrect, or out of date. You have the right to ask us to delete your data when it is no longer necessary or no longer subject to a legal obligation to which BHO Network is subject. You have the right to transfer your personal data between data controllers, for example, to move your account details from one online platform to another.

Our Services may, from time to time, contain links to and from the Website of our partner networks, advertisers, and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these Websites, please note that these Websites have their own privacy policies and that BHO Network does not accept any responsibility for them. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these Websites.
