Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are a software company who are trying our best to uphold the most ingenious digital experience for small and medium businesses worldwide.

Therefore, your privacy is critically important to us. At Dronifion, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services.
  • We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
  • We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what information on your website is shared publicly (or kept private), indexed by search engines, and permanently deleted.
  • We help protect you from overreaching government demands for your personal information.
  • We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.

Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.

What this policy covers

This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect about you when you use at https://www.dronifion.com

Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

What data are we collecting about you?

“Personal data” refers to any information that can identify you directly (such as your name) or indirectly (such as a unique client ID number).

The type of personal data we collect depends on the channel of our interaction and is limited to what is relevant and appropriate for that interaction. For example, website visitors who browse our site and view our products, information, and offerings can do so without identifying themselves, and the same applies to in-store and social media browsing. Unless you choose to interact with us through those channels, such as by making a purchase on our site, signing up for one of our programs or services, or posting a comment or like online, our data collection is limited to the use of cookies for website visitors.

For customers and other individuals who sign up for programs or services, we need to collect certain relevant information from you. The information we collect is related to the specific transaction as well as our overall relationship with you. For example, if you make purchases from our website or in our stores, we need to collect information to process (and, if relevant, fulfill and ship) your order. For customers and other individuals who sign up for our programs or services, we generally collect your contact details, contact preferences, and information that will allow us to recommend our products or services to you that may be of interest. We may centralize the information relating to our customers to have it organized in one place, as this helps us manage our relationship with you as well as your choices and preferences.

Depending on the data you provide or share with us, the type of personal data we may collect and process may include information related to:

  • Your identity (such as name, age, gender, date of birth, citizenship, nationality, race, identification card/passport details) and your contact details (such as email address, phone number)
  • Your interests and personal preferences
  • Your purchases (in store or online, including your orders, tracking numbers, and purchase invoices, the amount, and type of your purchase)
  • Payment information such as information related to your credit card, debit card, and/or other payment details
  • Your online journeys with us (such as when you use our website, official social media pages, partner websites and databases), specifically information gathered about you (such as your profile picture, photos, likes, location, and friend list)
  • Your requests or information you have shared with us through our customer service or public relations department (whether in written or verbal form) or provided by you in connection with your interaction with us
  • Our events you attend
  • Specific health data (such as skin and physical condition) if you notify us of any negative side-effects related to any of our products
  • Any such information we deem necessary or appropriate from time to time in connection with your dealings and/or relationships with us
  • Publicly available or publicly accessible information
  • Regarding your purchases, your bank details are encrypted through our servers. Payments are made through a secure payment platform PCI-DSS certified, supplemented by control measures, to ensure the security of purchases made and to prevent fraud.

The personal data essential to us is indicated by an asterisk on each personal data collection form, and it is mandatory for you to provide us with the requested information. If you do not provide the data marked with an asterisk, this may affect our ability to provide you with the requested products and/or services and our ability to enter into the necessary agreement related to the provision of our products and/or services to you. Other information is optional and allows us to know you better and improve our communication and services to you.

If you do not agree to allow us to process your personal data for marketing purposes, we and/or our selected authorized third parties will be unable to send you information by email, mail, or telecommunication (phone calls, SMS, MMS) about related and unrelated products and services offered by us and our affiliated business partners that we believe may be of interest to you.

We encourage you to keep us informed of any changes to your contact details in writing by contacting us using the information provided in the “Contact Us” section below.

As a general rule, your personal data will be retained in our client database:

  • If you are a “client” (i.e. you have already purchased a product): for no more than 10 years after your first purchase for customer relationship management, but no more than 5 years for business development; this period will be renewed each time you interact with us (e.g. make a purchase)
  • If you are a “prospective client” (i.e. you have never purchased a product but you are interested in the brand): for no more than 3 years; this period will be renewed each time you interact with us (e.g. participate in an event)
  • If you are in contact with the Public Relations department: for no more than 10 years after initial contact; this period will be renewed each time you interact with us (e.g. request information from us)

Cookies placed on your computer will be kept for no more than 13 months.

When we no longer need to use your personal data, it is removed from our systems and records or anonymized so that you can no longer be identified from it.

Who may access your personal data?

Your data is used by us to handle your requests. We ensure that only authorized individuals have access to your personal data when necessary for the purposes mentioned above.

We do not share your data with third parties unless you have given us consent to do so or it is legally permitted by law.

  • Any of our related and associated companies, affiliates, and subsidiaries, including any other entity and any entities within our group of companies
