1.  Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

We collect personal information (name, email address, mobile number, location etc.) from a customer when you set up an account with Safaricom on www.lipamdogo mdogo.com. As you browse some sections of our site without being a registered member, there are some activities that will require you to register. We do use your contact information to send you offers based on your previous orders, interests and searches on our website. We automatically collect and store certain types of information about your use of Safaricom services, including information about your interaction with content and services available through Safaricom services.

2.  Use of Demographic and Profile Data

We use personal information to provide the services you request. To the extent we use your personal information to market to you, we will provide you the ability to opt-out of such uses. We use your personal information to resolve disputes; troubleshoot problems; help promote a safe service; collect fees owed; measure consumer interest in our products and services, inform you about online and offline offers, products, services, and updates; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; enforce our terms and conditions; and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.

As we continually improve on our product and service offerings, we collect and analyze demographic and profile data about our users' activity on our website. We identify and use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website. Your IP address is also used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information. 

We from time to time request you to complete some simple and optional online surveys. These surveys may ask you for contact information and demographic information (like location, local government area, age, or income level or gender). We use this data to tailor your experience at our site, providing you with content that we think you might be interested in--and to display content according to your preferences.

3.  Sharing of personal information

We may share personal information with our other corporate entities and affiliates in an effort to detect and prevent identity theft, fraud and other potentially illegal acts; correlate related or multiple accounts to prevent abuse of our services; and to facilitate joint or co-branded services that you request where such services are provided by more than one corporate entity. 

Those entities and affiliates may not market to you as a result of such sharing unless optin is activated on your end.

We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary.

We may disclose personal information to law enforcement offices, third party rights owners, or others in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to: enforce our Terms or Policy; respond to claims that an advertisement, posting or other content violates the rights of a third party; or protect the rights, property or personal safety of our users or the general public.

In a case where Safaricom and its affiliates plan to merge/partnership or acquisition occurs by another business entity, we will be required to share some or all of your personal information with such entities.
