Privacy Policy

Sbwebtechnology.com is governed by the Constitution of Nepal under the Privacy Act 2018. This privacy policy regulates how sbwebtechnology.com administers the collected personal information.

The term “Personal Information” here implies the information of an individual registered in the website system. This privacy policy applies to such information collected and/or stored by sbwebtechnology.com.

The Privacy Policy also explains how we process personal data, as required under the General Data Protection Regulation. 

We review the contents of this policy regularly; so this document may be updated from time to time. 

What type of data is collected and stored by sbwebtechnology.com? 

We collect our users’ personal information to provide our products, services and most importantly, customer support. 

Not all information requested, collected and processed by sbwebtechnology.com is termed as “Personal Information” as it does not identify the user as a specific person. This includes the majority of “User Generated Content” that the user provides us with the clear intention of sharing with others, so such information is not covered by this privacy policy. 

However, it will be taken as personal information if such non-personal information may be used in aggregate or linked with the existing personal information. In such a case, this policy will list both types of information for the sake of transparency. 

Users may, on some occasions, provide us with some personal pieces of information without our request to do so, or through ways not specifically intended for the collection of such types of information. While we, to our best efforts, take various steps to protect such data, the user will have directly or indirectly bypassed our system, so such information provided will not be governed by this privacy policy. 

Similarly, the user may transfer their personal data to us using platforms outside our control, for example: through forums, social media, etc. In such a case, the information collected by us will be governed by this policy, but the platform using which it was communicated will be administered by its own Privacy Policy.
