This website, 9curry.com (the "Site") and its mobile applications (the "APP"), which is, with its owner and staff is collectively referred here as 9curry("9curry"). 9curry takes the private nature of your personal information very seriously.
Like most website operators, 9curry collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. 9curry’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 9curry’s visitors use its website, APP and services. From time to time, 9curry may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
9curry also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. 9curry does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors, users to 9curry’s websites or APP choose to interact with 9curry in ways that require 9curry to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 9curry gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for 9curry.com to provide a username and email address and public profile on social network facebook. In each case, 9curry collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 9curry. 9curry does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website/app related activities.
9curry may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors, users to its websites, apps or services. For instance, 9curry may monitor the most popular posts or information on 9curry.com. 9curry may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 9curry does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
9curry discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 9curry’s behalf or to provide services available at 9curry’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using 9curry’s websites and applications, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if 9curry or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that 9curry goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of 9curry may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, 9curry will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, 9curry discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when 9curry believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 9curry, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a 9curry website/applications and have supplied your email address, 9curry may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with 9curry and its products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. 9curry takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
You should also be aware that if you submit information to "chat rooms," "forums” or "message boards", "commenting" such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.

Similar technologies known as “local storage” may also be used in our Services as an alternative to cookies. This is technology which is similar to cookies and performs very similar functions, such as caching data to enable us to improve our Services, allowing you to register for our Services, tracking activity to enable us and our advertisers to advertise to you in accordance with this policy and counting the number of people who view adverts on our Services. Where we refer to “cookies” in this policy, we mean cookies or similar technologies.

What are cookies used for?
1. Functional Cookies Functional cookies are essential to the running of our Services. They are used to remember your preferences on our websites and to provide enhanced, more personal features. The information collected by these cookies is usually anonymised, so we cannot identify you personally. Functional cookies do not track your internet usage or gather information which could be used for selling advertising, but they do help with serving advertising. These cookies are usually session cookies which will expire when you close your browsing session.
2. Essential or ‘Strictly Necessary’ Cookies These cookies are essential for the running of our Services. Without these cookies, parts of our websites would not function. These cookies do not track where you have been on the internet and do remember preferences beyond your current visit and do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes.

3. Analytical Performance and Measurement Cookies Analytical performance cookies are used to monitor the performance of our Services, for example, to determine the number of pageviews and the number of unique users a website has.

Your web browsing history can be used to infer things about you (e.g. your age, gender etc.), and this information may also be used to make advertising on websites more relevant to you. Without these cookies, content and advertisements you encounter may be less relevant to you and your interests.
