Okumkom is extremely vigilant about who has access to information. As part of our day-to-day operations it is necessary – even beneficial – to share information with other sites and vendors. Okumkom routinely shares information with the following:

Social Media Sites: We give you the ability to access specific, reputable third party social media web sites and services through our site. When you do so, you are sharing information with those sites, and as such the information you share will be governed by their privacy policies. You may also be able to modify your privacy settings with these third party social media web sites.

Allied Business Partners: Okumkom routinely forges strategic alliances and partnerships in order to provide or enhance a particular tool or service we provide. You can tell when a third party is involved in a tool or service because their name will appear, either with ours or separately. You may also be referred to Okumkom from their web sites.

We may share your registration information, such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number and preferences (where applicable), about you with our Allied Business Partners. They have their own policies around the use of your personal information and we encourage you to review the privacy policies before sharing your personal information with an Allied Business Partner.

Third-party contractors: Okumkom engages third party businesses to perform specific functions including, but not limited to business analytics; e-commerce and fraud prevention; marketing, promotions and advertising; and business consulting. We may also authorize third-party vendors to collect information on our behalf. Third-party vendors have access to and may collect information only, as needed, in order to perform their functions. They are not permitted to share or use the information for any other purpose.

Okumkom will comply and share information in relation to a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy; take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; all subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.

Other than as set out above, you will be notified when personal information about you will be shared with third parties, so you have an opportunity to choose not to have us share such information.

We also share aggregate and share anonymous information with third parties, including advertisers and investors. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors our Web site receives or the most popular hotels and vacation destinations. This information does not contain any personal information and is used to develop content and services we hope you will find of interest.

vi) How we protect your personal & financial information

We want to you use Okumkom with confidence. We maintain security measures that protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the personal information under our control. We take reasonable precautions to ensure that data stored in our system is secure and that only authorized employees have access to your personal information for an intended purpose.

We employ firewalls and sophisticated detection software to prevent unauthorized parties from gaining access to our system and consequently your information.

Okumkom DOES NOT copy or store any personal financial information on our servers or files. All transactions are processed through our e-commerce gateway provider, IPay. For more information on their privacy and security practices and principles, read their Privacy Policy.
