How we protect your information
We have implemented commercially reasonable physical and electronic security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your personally identifiable information. Despite our best efforts, however, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.

Consent to processing
Use of the Services outside of India is a violation of our Terms of Use. Nevertheless, if you use the Services outside of India, you fully understand and unambiguously consent to the transfer of such personal information to, and the collection and processing of such personal information in India and other countries or territories. The laws on holding personal information in India may vary and be less stringent than laws of your state or country. By disclosing any information to Radiowalla Network Limited through the Website and by using the Website as a registered user, you are giving consent to the collection, storage and use of your personal information by us as set out in this Policy and the Terms of Use, and you understand and give consent to the collection, maintenance, processing and transfer of such information in and to India and other countries and territories. If you do not give consent to the collection, maintenance, processing and transfer of such information in and to India and other countries and territories, then you should not use the Website as a registered user, which means that many features will be unavailable to you.

Legally-Compelled Disclosures
We believe in privacy and therefore will take all reasonable measures to ensure that your personally identifiable information remains private. However, in the event that we are required to disclose personally identifiable information by a court, the police or other law enforcement bodies for their investigations, regulation or other governmental authority we will make such a disclosure without being in violation of this Policy.

Business Transitions
If Radiowalla Network Limited is acquired by another company or sells all or a portion of its assets to another company, or in the event of a merger, it is likely that user information will be a part of the assets transferred. If as a result of such a business transition information is to be collected, used or disclosed in a manner or for a purpose different from that stated above, Radiowalla Network Limited will endeavour to notify all users of such changes beforehand.
