Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy Scout Group (“Scout”, “we”, “us”) is committed to preserving and safeguarding your right to privacy. As part of this commitment, Scout wants you to be fully aware of what happens to the personal information in our custody and control. This Privacy Statement sets out the manner in which Scout will collect, use, disclose and otherwise manage the personal information we obtain from you through Scout’s website www.scoutgroup.co.in and www.smartparkingindia.com (the “Scout Websites”). By using the Scout Websites, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information In general, you can visit the Scout Websites without telling us who you are and without giving any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when Scout or our Authorized Distributors may need information from you to answer your inquiries and to provide you with information. Scout may collect personally identifiable information including, but not limited to, your name, company name, job position, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, profession etc. that you provide by sending an email to Scout, completing a form on the Scout Websites, registering for Login access to secure areas on the Scout Websites, and/or registering to receive the Scout Newsletter. We also collect your responses to our online surveys, forums or bulletin boards, and any comments, suggestions and other feedback you provide to Scout. In addition, we sometimes collect non-identifiable information from visits to Scout Websites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on Scout Websites, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable. This information is sometimes known as "clickstream data." Scout or others on Scout’s behalf may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service. Also, when we collect personal data from you in a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner you can disable your cookies. We collect the information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through the use of various technologies, including one called "cookies". A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer but not you. Some Scout Websites pages use cookies, sent by Scout or its third party vendors, or other technologies to better serve you when you return to the Scout Websites. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some Scout Websites may not work properly. Some Scout Websites also use web beacon or other technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These technologies may be in use on a number of pages across Scout Websites. When a visitor accesses these pages, a non- identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our suppliers. These web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don't want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies. If you turn off cookies, web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.

Use of your Personal Information Scout uses your personal information to identify who you are and to provide you with the services you have requested. Scout also uses your personal information to inform you of products and/or services available from Scout. Scout does not sell, rent or lease your information to third parties. However, Scout will provide your information to your local Scout Authorized Distributor. It is Scout’s practice to require such Authorized Distributors to handle information in a manner consistent with Scout’s policies. Scout uses aggregated and de-identified survey and feedback information for the purposes of monitoring and improving the use and features of the Scout Websites, and for any other specified purposes relating to such survey or request for feedback. We use clickstream data to help us to understand how the Scout Websites are used (e.g., which pages or sections are most popular and when are the peak activity times). This enables us to provide personalized services and assists us in planning for future improvements to the Scout Websites to better meet our visitors’ needs. Scout will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (i) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Scout or the Scout Website; (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Scout; and, (iii) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of the general public.

Information Security and Quality We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its quality. We implement appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information, to help us to keep your information secure and to maintain its quality.

Supplementing Information From time to time we may supplement information you give us via the Scout Websites with information from other sources, such as information validating your address or other available information about businesses. This is to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect and to help us provide a better service.

Use of Suppliers In some cases Scout uses suppliers to collect, use, analyze and otherwise process information on its behalf. It is Scout’s practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with Scout’s policies.

Personalized URL Link On occasion, we may personalize and customize Scout Websites sites for certain visitors. If you visit one of these sites, you may find it customized with references to products and/or services that we believe may be of interest to you, based on your previous interactions with Scout and information you have provided to us. While you are visiting these Scout Websites, we may collect information about your visit to better tailor the site to your interests. An invitation to visit one of these Scout Websites is usually presented as a personalized URL in an e-mail, a notice on a Scout Websites registration page, or as a response to you logging on to a certain Scout Websites. If you choose to visit one of these Scout Websites, you are agreeing to let Scout collect information about your visits and also to its association with other information about you and your relationship with Scout.
