Your privacy is critically important to us. At UHURU we have a few fundamental principles:
  • We will not ask for your personal data unless we truly need it.
  • We will not share your personal data with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We do not store personal data on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

UHURU operates the website uhurutribe.com. It is Uhuru's policy to respect your privacy regarding any personal data we may collect while operating our websites.

Collection of Personal Data
  • Basic information such as name, age, postal address, email address and phone number.
  • Authentication information such as uhurutribe.com username and password and if any third party service (e.g. Facebook) is used to sign in the user ID of that service.
  • IP address
  • Information relating to the customer relationship such as bought services, their start and end times and information on their use
  • Billing information

Customers of Uhuru can operate their own marketplaces using the Uhuru services. Collection and processing of personal data on each such marketplace is subject to the Privacy Policies of the respective marketplace along with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. Uhuru is not liable for the collection and processing of personal data on such marketplaces.

Purposes for Which the Personal Data is Collected

The personal data is collected for the purposes of making available the Uhuru and related services and for managing and administering Uhuru customer relationships. In addition, if you are a registered user of a Uhuru marketplace and have supplied your email address, Uhuru 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 Uhuru and our products, as well as the various marketplaces built using the Uhuru services. 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Uhuru may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Uhuru may monitor the most popular marketplaces on the Uhuru sites or screen the marketplaces to help identify spam. Uhuru may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Uhuru will not disclose personal data other than as described below.

Disclosures of Personal Data

Uhuru discloses personal data only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need that data in order to process it on Uhuru's behalf or to provide services available at Uhuru websites. Uhuru may disclose your personal data to its subcontractors or other such parties outside the EEA who assist Uhuru in providing the Uhuru services. Such disclosures are made in accordance with the applicable Finnish and European laws, rules and regulations. Uhuru will not rent or sell personal data to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Uhuru discloses personal data only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Uhuru believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Uhuru, third parties or the public at large.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Uhuru uses cookies to help it identify and track visitors, their usage of Uhuru websites, and their website access preferences. Uhuru visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Uhuru websites, with the drawback that certain features of Uhuru websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Protection of Personal Data

Uhuru takes all technical and organisational measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personal data. Access to personal data is limited only to those employees of Uhuru and its subcontractors who need to know the data in order to perform their work obligations. Each person who has access to the personal data has a personal username and password.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Uhuru may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at Uhuru's sole discretion. Uhuru encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
