This Privacy Notice (“Notice”) sets out how Nihant Stores Private Limited, a company incorporated in Nepal, and its associated suppliers in Nepal and worldwide (collectively referred to in this document as “Nihant”, “we” “our” or “us”) protects the privacy of your data.
Nihant is a supermarket chain in Nepal. We need to collect, use and disclose personal data to perform our business functions. We are firmly committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal data and to maintaining various physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information in our care.
By providing personal data to us, you agree that this Notice will apply to how we handle your data, and you consent to us collecting, using, and disclosing your data as detailed in this Notice. If you do not agree with any part of this Notice, you must not provide your data to us. If you do not provide us with your data, or if you withdraw the consent that you have given under this Notice, this may affect our ability to provide services to you or negatively impact the services we can provide to you. For example, most delivery bookings must be made under the customer’s full name, phone no. and address. We cannot take delivery bookings for you without that information. There may be instances where your local data protection laws impose more restrictive information handling practices than those set out in this Notice. Where this occurs, we will adjust our information handling practices in your jurisdiction to comply with these local data protection laws.
