Privacy Policy

At GFDCL, we are committed to protecting the privacy and security of our visitors. This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, and protect personal information provided by our visitors.


Information Collection and Use

We collect personal information from visitors when they visit our website, register, fill out forms, or subscribe to our newsletter. The personal information we collect includes names, email addresses, phone numbers, and other information that visitors choose to provide.

We use this information to provide visitors with the services they request, to communicate with them, and to improve their website experience. We may also use this information for marketing purposes, such as sending newsletters and promotional emails.

We do not sell, trade, or rent personal information to third parties. However, we may share personal information with third-party service providers who help us deliver our services, such as email providers or payment processors. We require these service providers to protect the confidentiality and security of personal information.


Cookies and Tracking

We use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about how visitors use our website. This information helps us understand visitor preferences and improve the website experience.

Visitors can choose to disable cookies in their web browser settings. However, disabling cookies may limit website functionality.


Security

We take the security of personal information seriously and use industry-standard security measures to protect it. However, no website or internet transmission can guarantee absolute security.

 

Children’s Privacy

Our website is not intended for children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.


Website and Email

When you visit our website, we may collect and store the date, time, and duration of your visit, your web browser version, the pages accessed, and the referring page. This information is not linked to your personal information. We may also collect other non-identifying data for statistical purposes. Our server may log your computer’s IP address, which we do not share with any third parties, and use only for statistical purposes. If you choose to submit your personal information through a contact form or email, we may store and use that information (including your email address) according to this Privacy Statement.


Information you share publicly on social media may be re-published on our site; for example, through a widget. Suppose you choose to submit your personal information in a public domain such as a mailing list, online forum, blog, wiki page, issue tracker, or social media channels, we may store some of this information, but we will only use it by this Privacy Statement. However, these are publicly available channels, so we are not responsible for ways in which other parties use the information you provide. Non-identifying statistical information concerning the usage of our products or our websites may be made available to the public.


While we take the best care possible to protect your personal information collected online, unfortunately, it is not possible to guarantee the security of data transmitted over the internet. Therefore, we cannot warrant the security of any information you send to us or receive from us online, particularly through email. We are unable to protect that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your communication, we make our best endeavors to keep your information secure.

Payments

We may use your personal information for processing bookings, issuing confirmations, responding to your queries or comments, providing information, updates, reporting, and improving our software, our website, or our social media channels.

We may also use your personal information to request testimonials, feedback, or other support.

Fulfillment of Bookings is carried out through registered vendors and we may share personal information with these people to enable them to complete their tasks.
However, we will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, loss,
unauthorized access, modification, or disclosure.

When you pay on the website, we do not ask for or store your Credit / Debit card details and personal information. All transactions are carried out on the website of the Payment Gateway and are governed by the Payment Gateway’s privacy policy. The Payment Gateway does not share your financial information with us.
