Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit most websites. The cookies do not collect any personally identifiable information, but may collect information such as your IP address, operating system and browser type, browsing actions and usage patterns, and other such information.

If you visit our website when your browser is set to accept cookies, we will interpret this as an indication that you consent to our use of cookies and other similar technologies as described in this cookie policy and our system will issue cookies when you log on to our website. If you change your mind in the future about letting us use cookies, you can modify your browser settings and preferences to refuse, disable, or remove cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, certain parts of our website may not function as intended.

Cookie Types

Session Cookies – These are temporary cookies that only exist during the period in which you access our website and are erased when you close your web browser. Session cookies do not collect personal information but help our website remember information you have entered and track movement within the website, thereby avoiding the need to re-enter information.

Persistent Cookies – These are cookies that remain on your device after you have visited our website. These cookies help us to identify you as a unique visitor by storing a randomly generated number. The length of time a cookie will remain on your device will depend on the type of cookie. On our website, these cookies do not contain personal information, and cannot be used to identify you.

Google Analytics Cookies – Google Analytics cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our website. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the website. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the website, how visitors have come to the website, and the pages they have visited. Google stores the information collected. For more information about how Google may process or use the information, please read the Google Privacy Policy.

Action Tags – Action tags or “web beacons” are transparent image files or tracking pixels that allow King Oscar to track our website user interactions and gain analytic insights. King Oscar may also use action tags in e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened or links have been accessed.

For further information about cookies, please see www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.

5. DATA SHARING WITH THIRD PARTIES

King Oscar respects your privacy and we will not wittingly share or sell your personal data with third parties for marketing or other purposes.

We will only share your data:

  • If we are required to do so by law to comply with a legal obligation or court order.
  • If necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of ourselves, our customers, or others.
  • In the event that all or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us may be one of the transferred assets in the acquisition.

6. DATA TRANSFERS

King Oscar, Inc. is based in the United States. During the course of business, we may process, store, and/or transfer the personal data we collect, in and/or to a country outside your own, with different privacy laws that may or may not be identical to your own. In such cases, we make sure that the recipients of your personal data maintain an adequate level of data protection.

By submitting your personal data or engaging with our website, you consent to this transferring, storing, and/or processing.

7. DATA SECURITY

What we do.
We know that when you provide us with any type of information, you trust us to keep it safe. We take all reasonable precautions necessary to protect your personal information in accordance with this privacy policy, both online and offline.

We use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards designed to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access.

When you submit information via our website, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers and servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal data with SSL encryption, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to our website. Any transmission of personal data is at your own risk. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the website or in our social media channels.

What you can do.
If you are uncomfortable about sharing your personally identifiable information with us, you may of course choose not to volunteer it. Please know that this may then make it impossible for us to respond to particular requests, for example where a customer service issue is involved. With regard to automated data collection, you may configure your web browser to refuse, disable, or remove cookies. However, parts of our website will not function properly if you do not allow cookies.

Additionally, you are responsible for providing us with personal information about you via private methods. For example, if you choose to provide us with your contact information via a publicly viewable social media comment rather than by private message, then we cannot be responsible for keeping that information safe and secure.

8. DATA STORAGE PERIODS

Unless otherwise required by law, we shall retain your personal information according to the following timescales:

  • Product complaints and queries are held for the length of the product life and then an additional two years, with the maximum retention six years.
  • Marketing data will be held until you unsubscribe.
  • Job applications will be held for up to one year (unless you have asked us to remove the application or have been offered a position within our company).

9. TREATMENT OF VOLUNTARILY PROVIDED, NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE MATERIAL

Any non-personally identifiable, anonymous comments, questions, or other content (individually and collectively referred to as “Material”) that you voluntarily transmit: (i) directly to the website; (ii) directly to any of our social media channels; (iii) directly to a third-party website concerning our products; and/or (iv) directly to us by e-mail or letter shall be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. You agree that King Oscar has the unrestricted right to edit, publish, or otherwise use any such Material without acknowledgement, credit, or compensation to you of any kind. You further indemnify King Oscar against all liability for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of our use and/or disclosure of such Material to the extent permitted by law.

10. THIRD-PARTY LINKS & SOCIAL MEDIA FEEDS

The King Oscar website may contain links to third-party websites or third-party social media feeds. Any such third-party websites or feeds are governed by the privacy policies of those third-party or organizations, wholly distinct from the King Oscar Privacy Policy. King Oscar can take no responsibility for such third-party privacy policies. If you have questions about how other websites or organizations collect, process, or use your information, you should review the relevant website privacy policies or directly contact the relevant website owners and/or third-party companies.

11. USER RIGHTS: USA AND EU VISITORS

If you are a citizen of the USA, you have certain rights to your data under Federal Trade Commission regulations. If you are a citizen of the EU, your data rights are governed according to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

This privacy policy outlines the way we voluntarily and ethically handle the personal data rights of all our website visitors in keeping with prevailing standards. If you have any questions regarding your privacy and data related to King Oscar, please contact us at dpo.kingoscar@thaiunion.com.

Data access.
You have the right to know if we collect your personal data, how we obtain any data, where we store it, how we handle it, and how we may use it. You also have the right to view, amend, restrict, or delete any of your personal information that we may collect or hold.

To request access to your data, please email us at dpo.kingoscar@thaiunion.com. We will provide the information to you. If the request is unfounded, excessive, or you cannot first prove your identity, we reserve the right to charge an appropriate administrative fee or to refuse.

Consent.
When you enter our website or actively submit information through our mail form, we will ask you to accept our policy regarding the use of cookies and we will ask for your permission to collect information about you. In certain cases where appropriate, we will ask you to check a box to provide your consent.

Correction.
If any of the information we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you may ask us to correct or complete it at any time.

Objections.
You have the right to ask us to stop processing your data. Upon receiving your request, we will either confirm or inform you if we have legitimate grounds to continue. If we stop processing your data, we may continue to hold it to comply with your other rights.

You have the right to request that decisions concerning you or significantly affecting you based on automated data processing be made by humans, and not solely by computers. You also have the right in this case to object to and contest any such decisions.

Removal.
At your discretion, you can request us to completely delete your personal information from our system. Once we have received and processed your request, we will confirm whether the data has been deleted or explain why it cannot be deleted.

Please be aware that deleting your data record, unlike unsubscribing from specific marketing emails or newsletters, is total and irreversible. This means that if we remove you, we will lose record of you ever having been in our system, including any previous instructions you may have given us to opt out of specific email types. If you rejoin our systems by voluntarily providing your personal information again, you will appear to us as a completely new data subject and you would need to reset your opt-in preferences. Removal does not affect your other rights in any way.
