GENERAL INFORMATION

Data protection
The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note to the person responsible
The person responsible for data processing on this website is:

Ms. Maneet Kaur

The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).

Why We Collect and Use Your Information

We use your information for a couple of purposes:

  • To enable us to provide you with our Services, and to improve and promote our Services;
  • To customize your experience on Kaurs (for example, to show you emails that we think may interest you based on your previous email or website activity); and
  • To track and analyze use of the Services so that we can improve how Kaurs is performing and provide users with the best experience possible.
  • To verify compliance with applicable legal requirements and our policies.

We process personal data because this is necessary for the performance of the contract between you and us, for our compliance with our legal obligations and for the purpose of our legitimate interests. In particular, our legitimate interests are our commercial company interest (e.g. to improve our products and services), our interest to make use of direct marketing, our interest to prevent fraud and our interest to report possible criminal acts or threats to competent authorities. Some of the personal data that we process is required for us to meet our legal obligations, for example we cannot send emails to you if you choose not to share your personal data with us.

How Do We Protect Your Data and Who Else Receives Your Information?

First and foremost, we make sure to encrypt and pseudonimize any personally identifiable information so that it’s not seen by the public.

We may share certain communications you send to us (for example, an email message or comment about how much you liked the newsletter). We typically scrub these communications of any personally identifiable information such as your email address or full name.

The following data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users, unless you grant us explicit consent:

Your email address;

Your mailing address;

Your IP address;

Any other private profile information, in accordance with your account settings and

Communications you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem).

In some instances, we may also share your information to the following parties and for the following reasons:

Competent public authorities or other third parties, if required by law or reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of ourselves or others.

Service providers under contract who help with our business operations. We employ these companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products and services to you.

Our affiliates and promotional partners, so they can offer you special products, services, discounts, tickets, and other items or services. Likewise, we may receive information from such affiliates and promotional partners to offer our Users special items or services. We ask for your explicit consent in sharing your personal information with these parties. We do not sell personal information to third parties. The data that is usually shared with affiliates and promotional partners is in aggregate and not at an individual level (for example, we may share that “most of our email newsletter subscribers love grilled paneer recipes”).

We may also transfer your personal data in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets on a need to know basis. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal data you have provided to us in a manner that is consistent with applicable law and this Privacy Statement.

We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information.

You have a right to a copy of the information we have about you. Contact us for more information.

Data Retention
We only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the processing purposes listed below. If the respective processing purpose no longer applies, the personal data will be deleted or blocked in accordance with legal requirements.

If the storage of your personal data is necessary due to a legal regulation to which the person responsible is subject, your personal data will be blocked or deleted when the storage period prescribed by the legal regulation expires.

We retain your data for the shortest amount necessary to provide you with our Services. Typically, we will retain most of the personal data for the duration of your use of the website and Services. Note that even after the deletion of your account from our end, we still retain information about your past activity with the email newsletter, but your personal information will be non-identifiable.

How We Work With Third-Parties
As noted above, we may share your information with certain trusted third-party services (example: MailChimp who helps us deliver the newsletters, or when we partner with payment processors, or use Google Analytics to help us understand how our site is being used and how to attract more customers). When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of our Services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do. We do not release or sell private and personally identifiable information. For example, we may release statistics on the geographical makeup of our audience, but we do not release the names and other information of who lives where — you will remain anonymous.

Integration of external service providers
For the provision of our website and the functions integrated into it, we work together with external technical service providers (e.g. hosting service providers, service providers for the care and maintenance of our mail server). Your personal data will only be passed on to the technical service providers to the extent necessary to carry out the aforementioned tasks.

Of course, we carefully select the technical service providers who support us in carrying out the aforementioned tasks and request that they use your personal data in accordance with this data protection declaration and existing order processing agreements. The technical service providers commissioned by us process the transmitted personal data according to our instructions.

Data transfers outside the EEA
We may transfer the personal data we obtain to third parties in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The laws in those countries may not offer an adequate level of data protection. When we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will protect your personal data as described in this Privacy Statement and in accordance with applicable law, such as by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data to a processor located outside of the European Union.
