If you have any doubts

What information do we collect?

We collect personal and non-personal information from both registered and guest users when they visit our site. The information will be shared only with trusted partners who assist in ensuring that your experience on our site is worthwhile. We do not sell your information to any third parties and we see it as our responsibility to keep your information safe. Below is some of the information that we will be using:

Name
Contact information, including email address and telephone numbers
Demographic information such as an address, delivery location, and preferences
Other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers
We will only use your information to fulfill orders placed by you and to send you selected information about deals or product information that we think will interest you. We are also in full compliance with PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards), which means you can rest assured that our systems are secure, and you can trust us with your sensitive payment card information. As a matter of fact, we don’t store or keep any information relating to your credit or debit cards. While checking out, you will be directed to the secure portal maintained by our payment gateway provider.

Gadget Zone and our third-party partners (advertisers, content, and service providers, such as logistics or payment providers), may also collect non-personal information about you while you use our site for statistical purposes. This information does not contain any of your personally identifiable information but rather details of your browser type, computer’s IP, pages visited, time spent on the site, and the advertisements that you clicked on. We also track any search terms that were entered on our website. For purposes of maintaining quality and issue resolution, we may in time record all telephone calls should we require further information.
