  1. RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
    1. Your Personal Information will only be held for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, or for as long as such retention is required or authorised by Applicable Law. We shall cease to retain Personal Information, or remove the means by which the Personal Information can be associated with you as an individual, as soon as it is reasonable to assume that the purpose for which that Personal Information was collected is no longer being served by retention of Personal Information and retention is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes.
    2. Please note that there is still the possibility that some of your Personal Information might be retained by the other party (e.g., the Transportation Provider (if you are the User), or the User (if you are the Transportation Provider) or other Governmental Authority) in some manner (such as, by means of a screen capture). In the event we share your Personal Information to third parties, you agree and acknowledge that the retention of your Personal Information by the relevant institutions will follow their respective policy on data retention. Information relayed through communications between Users and Transportation Providers made other than through the use the Application (such as by telephone, mobile messaging or other modes of communication or through collection of your Personal Information by our agents) may also be retained by some means. We do not authorise the retention of Personal Information by such means and we have no responsibility to you for the same. To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, we shall not be liable for any such retention of your Personal Information. You agree to indemnify, defend and release us, our officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers, contractors and Affiliates from and against any and all claims, losses, liabilities, expenses, damages and costs (including but not limited to legal costs and expenses on a full indemnity basis) resulting directly or indirectly from any unauthorised retention of your Personal Information.

  1. ACCESS AND CORRECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
    1. You may request us for access to and/or the correction of your Personal Information in our possession and control, by contacting us at the details provided in MilkRun Application. Subject to Applicable Law, we reserve the right to charge an administrative fee for such requests.
    2. We reserve the right to refuse your requests for access to, or to correct, some or all of your Personal Information in our possession or control, if permitted or required under any Applicable Law. This may include circumstances where the Personal Information may contain references to other individuals or where the request for access or request to correct is for reasons which we reasonably consider to be trivial, frivolous or vexatious.

  1. WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
    1. The Personal Information that we collect from you may be stored at, transferred to, or processed by third party service providers. We will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that all such third party service providers provide a level of protection that is comparable to our commitments under this Privacy Policy.
    2. Your Personal Information may also be stored or processed outside of your country by personnel who work for us in other countries, or by our third party service providers, suppliers, contractors or Affiliates, to the extent permitted under Applicable Law. In such a case, we will ensure that such Personal Information remains subject to a level of protection comparable to what is required under the laws of your country (and, in any event, in line with our commitments in this Privacy Policy).

  1. SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
    Confidentiality of your Personal Information is of utmost importance to us. We will use all reasonable efforts to protect and secure your Personal Information against access, collection, use or disclosure by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage or similar risks.

You agree that it is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy regularly for the latest information on our data processing and data protection practices, and that your continued use of the Application or Website, communications with us, or access to and use of the Transportation Services following any amendments to this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance to the amendments.
