4.2. Account Opening Related Data

In order to maintain integrity of the Service, AgriComm Bazaar must take measures to avoid creation of accounts by spammers. Each User Account is unique and associated with an individual. Therefore, a unique identifier consisting of first name, last name, gender is generated and associated with each user. Contact number is used to facilitate messaging service between one or more users of the service. The legal basis for processing is User Consent. You are free to delete your User Account and remove that data in the account panel of your AgriComm Bazaar User account.

4.3. Verification

Such data will only be used to contact you with important notifications about AgriComm Bazaar, to send you information related to security, to verify your User Account, or to send you password recovery links if you enable the option. We may also inform you about new AgriComm Bazaar features in which you might have an interest. You are free, at any given time, to opt-out of those features through the account settings panel. In order to pursue our legitimate interest of preventing the creation of accounts by spam bots or human spammers, AgriComm Bazaar uses a variety of human verification methods. You may be asked to verify using either reCaptcha, Email, or SMS. IP addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers provided are saved temporarily in order to send you a verification code and to determine if you are a spammer.

4.4. Unauthorized Login

In order to detect unusual activity from your User Account, geolocation and IP addresses are used to ascertain only genuine users are using the services, and any suspicious activity is reported to the user. The legal basis for processing is our legitimate interest to prevent unauthorized use of Service and protection of user’s interest, thereby maintaining integrity of the Service. Any personal information, so collected, is stored in encrypted form on AgriComm Bazaar’s servers.

4.5. Communicating with AgriComm Bazaar

Your communications with the Company, such as support requests, bug reports, or feature requests may be saved by our staff. The legal basis for processing is our legitimate interest to troubleshoot more efficiently and improve the quality of the AgriComm Bazaar service.

4.6. Payment Information

The Company relies on third parties to process UPI, Credit card, and other payment gateways and hence the Company necessarily must share payment information with third parties. The legal basis of this processing is the necessity to the execution of the contract between you and us and for us to receive our Service Fees.

4.7. Native Applications

When you use our native applications, we (or the mobile app platform providers) may collect certain information in addition to the information mentioned elsewhere in this Policy. We may use mobile analytics software (such as fabric.io app statistics and crash reporting, Play Store app statistics, App Store app statistics, or self-hosted Sentry crash reporting) to send crash information to our developers so that we can fix bugs rapidly. Some platforms (such as the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store) may also collect aggregate, anonymous statistics like which type of devices and operating systems that are most commonly used, the total number of installs, total number of uninstalls, and the total number of active users, and may be governed by the privacy policy and terms and conditions of the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The legal basis for processing is our legitimate interest to improve the quality of the AgriComm Bazaar service. Any personal data acquired during this process is anonymized.

6.2. Use of Third-Party Advertising Services

We provide ad companies with information that allows them to serve you with more useful and relevant ads and to measure their effectiveness. We never share your name or other information that directly identifies you when we do this. Instead, we use an advertising identifier like a cookie or other device identifier. For example, if you have already downloaded one of our apps, we will share your advertising identifier and data about that event so that you will not be served an ad to download the app again. Some ad companies also use this information to serve you relevant ads from other advertisers. You can learn more about how to opt-out of interest-based advertising by going to the FAQs page.
