Any transmission is undertaken at your own peril. After receiving your Personal Information, we shall employ stringent protocols and security measures to prevent unauthorized access. Please note that no website or online service can ever be guaranteed to be completely secure, and you should take reasonable efforts to safeguard your Personal Information (for example, by sharing Personal Information only with operators of websites and other digital platforms that you trust, by keeping any login details secure and confidential and by using antivirus software on your devices etc.).
WHAT ABOUT DATA THAT IS SENSITIVE?
By and large, we do not collect sensitive data as specified in the second paragraph below (also known as special categories inside the EEA) via this website or elsewhere. In the few instances where we may collect such information, we will comply with applicable data privacy laws and/or obtain your consent.
The phrase “sensitive data” refers to the many categories of personal data designated by data privacy legislation as requiring handling, including the need to acquire your explicit approval in some cases. These categories include race or ethnicity, political viewpoints, religious, philosophical, or other similar beliefs, union participation, physical or mental health, biometric or genetic data, sexual life or orientation, and criminal convictions and offenses (including information about suspected criminal activities).

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF DATA.
Your Personal Data may be collected, transferred to, and stored by us in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as well as by our affiliates and third parties in other countries. Your Personal Data may therefore be handled outside of your jurisdiction, including in countries and jurisdictions that may not afford an equivalent degree of protection. However, we have implemented procedures to ensure a sufficient degree of data protection when transferring your Personal Data outside of your country or jurisdiction.
We may do so in the following circumstances:
- for operational, administrative, and compliance purposes by DUKKANTEK’s Affiliates;
- by DTEK and its Affiliates’ sales, business partners, operational or customer support teams in our various locations, as detailed on the Website; and
- By our service providers, for the purposes outlined above under “Sharing Information with Third Parties.”
By agreeing to the collection and use of your personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of your personal information in this manner and for the mentioned reasons.
The following are the protections that we implement while carrying out such transfers across boundaries:
- Adequacy. Transfers to DTEK Affiliates may be undertaken in accordance with a European Commission adequacy decision.
- Model Clauses. With some of our processors, we apply European Commission-approved standard contractual terms, which are legally binding norms for the processing of personal data by third parties processing information for us and on our behalf.
- Consent. In the absence of an adequacy determination or Model Clauses, and in the absence of any other right to transfer your data, your consent will serve as the legal basis for the transfer. By accessing and using the Website, you acknowledge and understand that your information may be transferred from the European Economic Area (EEA) or other countries from where you may be accessing or using the Website to other jurisdictions beyond your own (including outside the EEA).
THE RIGHTS OF CHILDREN.
Our Site is designed for a wide audience and is not intended for youngsters younger than thirteen (13). In compliance with any legal and regulatory obligations, we do not deliberately collect, use, solicit, or disclose personal information from minors without the prior agreement of their parents. If you are under 18 years of age, you may not use the Site, and/or our Services. We may seek information regarding your age to comply with applicable laws. For instance, we may request your date of birth to determine if we require parental consent from your parent or legal guardian before allowing you access to the Site. Upon learning that Personal Data of persons under the age of 18 have been obtained without verifiable parental consent on our Site, we will take all reasonable measures to delete this information immediately.
COOKIES AND SIMILAR TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES.
DUKKANTEK and its third-party partners, such as advertising and analytics partners, utilize cookies and other tracking technologies (e.g., web beacons, device identifiers, and pixels) to provide functionality and to recognize users across numerous Services and devices. To better serve our users, we use “cookies” to record information about their interactions with our Site, such as the pages they visit, the amount of time they spend on those pages, the presence or absence of error messages, the information they voluntarily provide to help us tailor our service to their needs, and their username and password information to save them time each time they log into the Platform.

WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THE LAW WITH REGARDS TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Depending on the laws in your country, you have certain rights when it comes to your Personal Data. If you live in the European Economic Area, the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) applies to your personal information: Depending on the laws in place, these rights could include:
- Subject access requests: (SARs) allow individuals to obtain a copy of their personal data that has been collected and stored by an organization. This way, you can get a copy of the information we have on file about you and verify that we’re following the law while using it.
- Request correction: The information we have about you can and should be updated upon your request. We may need to verify the additional information you supply to us to ensure its accuracy, but this option allows you to have any wrong or incomplete information we have about you updated.
- Make a request to have your record deleted. You have the right to request that we erase or remove your personal information where there is no compelling reason for us to retain it. If you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (described below), if we may have processed your information unlawfully, or if we are obligated to erase your personal data to accordance with local legislation, you may request that we delete or remove your personal data. Please be aware that there may be circumstances where we are unable to comply with your request of erasure due to legal requirements; in such cases, we will inform you at the time of your request.
- Raise an objection to having your personal information used. By doing so, you can raise an objection to processing when we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there are reasons to believe that doing so would adversely affect your basic rights and freedoms. If we use your information for direct marketing purposes without your consent, you have the right to protest. We may be able to show that there are significant, overriding legitimate grounds for us to handle your personal data, which outweigh any potential impact on you.
- Make a formal request to have further processing of your data restricted. In the following cases, you can ask us to put a hold on processing your personal data while we figure out what to do next: (a) if you want us to make sure the data is correct; (b) if our use of the data is illegal but you don’t want us to delete it; (c) if you need us to keep processing the data even if we no longer require it because you need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims; or (d) if you object to our use
- Demand that your data be sent to you, or another chosen recipient. Your information will be delivered to you, or whoever you designate, in a standard, machine-readable format. Please be aware that this privilege only applies to the automated information for which you initially consented to our usage or if we utilized the information to fulfill a contract with you.
- Stop giving your approval. In cases where your consent is the legal basis for our processing of your personal data, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time. Even if you later change your mind and decide to withdraw your consent, doing so will not invalidate any processing that occurred prior to your withdrawal. If you revoke your consent, we may be unable to continue providing the services in question. If that’s the case, we’ll let you know at the time you cancel your permission.
If we are acting as a processor with respect to your personal data, we shall notify the relevant controller of your request and cooperate with the controller to ensure your request is met. A charge is typically not required to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights).
