For the purposes of this policy these two entities shall hereby be referred to as the Controller and Processor, respectively.
We strive to make our website fully compliant with all privacy laws, including the GDPR. To help you digest our full policy, below is a table of contents.
The personal information that we may collect about you broadly falls into the following categories:
Certain parts of our Services may ask you to provide personal information voluntarily.
When you create a Koh Gurkha member's account, sign-up or fill in forms on the Services, we collect information about you including your name, address, telephone number, email address and the password you create. Please note your password is stored in an encrypted format that cannot be hacked.
We collect information relating to your Orders, including payment information (e.g. part of your credit card number) using the secure services of our payment processors. Payment operations are outsourced to our payment processors and we do not store your full credit card information in our systems. We also collect delivery details (e.g. your physical address) to fulfil each delivery Order.
We collect information about your preferences to receive marketing information any time you subscribe or unsubscribe.
When you post messages and reviews of the Services or you contact us, for example with a question, problem or comment, we collect information about you including your name and the content of your query. If you contact our website operator's customer support teams, they will record and keep a record of your conversation for quality and training purposes and to aid in the resolution of your queries.
When you access our Services, we may collect certain information automatically from your device.
We collect information about your usage of the Services and information about you from the content you create and the notifications or messages you post or send as well as what you search for, look at and engage with.
From time to time, we may receive personal information from third party sources, including advertising networks but only where we have checked that these third parties either have your consent to process the information or are otherwise legally permitted or required to share your personal information with us. This information may include your likely demographic group.
We collect information from our third party affiliates about the way you respond to and engage with our marketing campaigns so that we can customise our marketing and Services accordingly.
Examples of how we may use this information include:
The registration information you provide when you create a Koh Gurkha member's account allows us to give you access to the Services and to supply them to you under our Terms. We also use this information to authenticate your access to the Services, to contact you for your views and to notify you of important changes or updates to our Services.
Your transaction information (such as the food items you add to your basket) allow us to process your Order and send you an accurate bill. It also helps us contact you where necessary.
Koh Gurkha or our affiliates may contact you by email, phone or SMS to give you status updates or other information or to resolve problems with your account or Order. We may contact you by phone or SMS to provide you with status updates or other information regarding your Order.
Where you pay for your Order with a mobile payment or digital wallet service provider (such as Applepay or Pay with Google) we will send you transaction information via confirmation emails or SMS to the email address or phone number registered with that service provider (since this is required by those providers).
Sometimes we may use third party delivery companies; these companies may use your information to provide you with status updates on the delivery of your Order.
We will also analyse information on completed transactions and successfully delivered Orders on the basis of data matching or statistical analysis so that we can administer, support, improve and develop our business and Services. Our analyses also help us detect and prevent fraud or other illegal activities or acts prohibited by our Terms or any policies applicable to the Services.
Koh Gurkha or our affiliates may market to you, where permitted by law, by post, email, telephone, mobile (i.e. SMS, in-app messaging and push notification) about our products or Services.
Where you have given your consent, we may share your information with third parties (e.g. other companies) in other sectors (such as food, drink and entertainment) so that they can tell you about goods or services which may interest you.
If you don't want us to use your data in this way or generally change your mind about receiving any form of marketing communications, you can unsubscribe at any time using the unsubscribe functionality in the communication you receive or by amending your profile accordingly. You may also be able to opt-out of push notifications at a device level (e.g. by way of your iOS settings). If you choose to unsubscribe from our marketing, we will keep a record of your preferences so that we don't bother you with unwanted marketing in future.
If you give us feedback we will use it to reply to your questions or queries, to provide customer support and resolve any problems with your Orders or with the Services. We may publish reviews that you send to us and we also analyse your feedback to improve and develop our Services and in order to enhance your experience.
When you access our Services, we may collect certain information automatically from your device such as your IP address, MAC address or device ID.
We analyse your buying habits and how you interact with our Services so that we can suggest food options we think you would like to try. If you choose to share your geo-location with us, we may use this information to show you content that is local to you; this information will also help smooth the effective and speedy delivery of your Order. We may also provide you with customised content and advertisements based on your previous interactions with our Services and our knowledge of your preferences which we understand from your usage and buying history relating to the Services.
We enable you to access your Order history so that you can easily reorder. We may also collect information about your interaction with our emails and other forms of communication.
We analyse information we collect from our third-party service providers (such as Google, Facebook, Amazon and other affiliates) to understand how you engage with our Services and advertisements (e.g. whether you have clicked on one of our advertisements). This helps us to understand your preferences and recommend you Services which are tailored to your interests.
In delivering the Services to you, depending on the circumstances, we may share your personal information with the following entities:
Our legal basis for collecting and using your personal information as described above will depend on the specific context in which we collect it.
Our main reason for collecting and using your personal information is to perform our contract with you (i.e. to make sure you get your Order when you want it). However we will also use your personal information where it is in our legitimate business interests to do so (but only if our interests are not overridden by your data protection interests or your fundamental legal rights and freedoms). In some cases, we may have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you (e.g. in the event of legal proceedings) or we might need to process it or share it with others to "protect your vital interests" (this is legal speak for saving your life) or those of another person (e.g. in a case where another person's life is in danger).
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (and we'll also explain the possible consequences of you not providing it).
Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the "How to contact us" below.
We may transfer your personal information to countries other than the country in which you are resident. Koh Gurkha currently only uses website servers that are located in the United Kingdom. Some of our providers may use non UK servers which means that when we collect your personal information they may process it in any of these countries.
We place great importance on keeping your personal information safe and secure. As such, we put in place appropriate technical and organisational measure/industry standard technology to protect it from unauthorised access and unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.
The security measures we use are designed to provide a level of protection security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. Where you have chosen a password which allows you to access certain parts of the Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We advise you not to share your password with anyone and to use a unique password for our Services. We will not be liable for any unauthorised transactions entered into using your name and password.
Koh Gurkha member's will retain your personal information where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, while you hold an account with us or to enable us to meet our legal, tax or accounting obligations).
If you object to us processing certain categories of your personal information (including in relation to receiving marketing communications from us), we will retain a record of your objection to the processing of your information so that we can continue to respect your wishes.
We will destroy or permanently anonymise your personal information at the point that we no longer need to process it for our ongoing legitimate business needs or for any legal reason. If this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store it and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Koh Gurkha respects your privacy and data protection rights. Below is a summary of your rights in respect of the personal information of yours which we(and our affiliates) handle:
Our website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates or to any number of websites that may offer useful information to our visitors. We provide these links to you only as a convenience and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement of the relevant website by Koh Gurkha. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that they have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or those linked websites. Please check these policies before you submit any personal information to such websites.
We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
The controller of your personal information is the Koh Gurkha member's entity in the country in which you use our Services.
Your contact details may be shared with our service provider and between our other companies for reasons not limited to that of fraud prevention and marketing.
