7.How We Protect and Store Personal Information
Throughout this policy, we use the term "personal information" to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider personal information to include information that has been made anonymous so that it does not identify a specific user;
We store and process your personal information on our servers in Kenya (East Africa) and elsewhere in the world where our facilities are located. We protect your information using physical, technical, and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. Some of the safeguards we use are firewalls and data encryption, physical access controls to our data centers, and information access authorization controls;
8.How We Share Personal Information with Other Third Parties
We may share your personal information with:
-Members of the Web Tribe Limited or Affiliates to provide joint content, products, and services (like loyalty, credit and customer support), to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and violations of our policies, and to guide decisions about their products, services, and communications. Members of our corporate family will use this information to send you marketing communications;
-Service providers under contract who help with our business operations, such as fraud prevention, bill collection, marketing, and technology services. Our contracts dictate that these service providers only use your information in connection with the services they perform for us and not for their own benefit;
-Financial institutions that we partner with to jointly create and offer a product. These financial institutions may only use this information to market Viupay Cashless-related products;
-Credit bureaus and collection agencies to report account information, as permitted by law;
-Law enforcement, government officials, or other third parties pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other legal process or requirement applicable to Viupay Cashless or one of its affiliates; when we need to do so to comply with law or credit card rules; or when we believe, in our sole discretion, that the disclosure of personal information is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity or to investigate violations of our user Agreement.
-Other third parties with your consent or direction to do so.
Please note that these third parties may be in other countries where the laws on processing personal information may be less stringent than in your country.
If you open a Viupay Cashless account directly on a third party website or via a third party application, any information that you enter on that website or application (and not directly on a Viupay Cashless website) will be shared with the owner of the third party website or application. These sites are governed by their own privacy policies and you are encouraged to review their privacy policies before providing them with personal information. Viupay Cashless is not responsible for the content or information practices of such third parties.

You can review and edit your personal information at any time by logging in to your account and reviewing your account profile. If you close your Viupay Cashless account, we will mark your account in our database as "Closed", but may retain personal information from your account for a certain period of time to collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, prevent fraud, enforce our user Agreement, or take other actions as required or permitted by law.
