Privacy Policy

Introduction

Here at eTukTuk, protecting your data and ensuring your privacy is of paramount importance to us. As we engage with each other, it is important to let you know that eTukTuk and its team will do everything in their power to ensure that your information is kept safe.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully, as it contains important guidance about the types of information that we collect and why we collect it, as well as how we store, use, and share your data. This document will also cover your options and your rights regarding the information you share with us.

This Privacy Policy exists between you, the “Data Provider” hereafter known as “You,” “Your,” or the “User” of the website https://etuktuk.io and the owner of this website, hereafter known as “We,” “Us,” “Our,” or the “Data Controller”.

Scope of This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy exists to provide you with current and updated information on how eTukTuk collects and processes your data through the use of this website, including any information provided to us by you, the User.
