  1. Data Security and Retention

We take reasonable measures to protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We use a secure, encrypted connection (using a TLS protocol) on all pages where you access or transmit personal information. Although Kashati uses reasonable efforts to help protect your information, transmission via the Internet is not completely secure and Kashati cannot guarantee the security of your information collected through our Services. Except as otherwise set forth under applicable law, we assume no liability or responsibility for disclosure of your information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access or other causes beyond our control. We retain the information collected via our Services until you choose to close your account. After that time, we may aggregate the data and retain it for analytical purposes. We may also retain your information on backup media to comply with applicable law, to support financial audits, to resolve disputes, to maintain compliance efforts and for other legitimate business reasons.

If you consented to receiving promotional email communications, you can opt out of receiving such communications from us at any time by (i) following the instructions provided in those communications; (ii) modifying your Email Preferences in the Account Settings of your account; or (iii) contacting us through the Services. Please note that even if you opt out of receiving promotional communications, we may continue to send you non-promotional emails and other types of communications, as permitted by law, such as service emails relating to our ongoing business relationship. Service emails contain service-related announcements that affect your account, such as product order confirmations, reward or payment updates, and responses to your comments and feedback submitted to us. Kashati mobile applications, browser extensions and websites may send you notifications, such as alerts, sounds and icon badges. Push notifications or in-app messages may include both operational messages and promotional messages regarding products, services and offers that may be of interest to you. When using mobile applications, push notifications and other mobile alerts can be configured in the settings of your mobile device. As with emails, even if you opt out of receiving promotional communications, we may continue to send you non-promotional push notifications, such as those about your use of the applications or our ongoing business relations. If you elect to provide us a mobile number, we may use it to contact you when you make account updates or for account recovery purposes. You may opt out of such messages by removing your mobile number in your account preferences or replying STOP to any incoming messages.
