Introduction

Narwal (“Company” or “We”) respects your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Privacy Policy (this “Privacy Policy”).

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide us with when you use our products and services, such as when you visit our websites (including but not limited to narwal.com , collectively our “Website”), when you use our mobile applications (including but not limited to Freo App, collectively our “App”) and when you have nonpublic interactions with us (e.g., via opening a help/feedback ticket) (collectively, our “Service”). It also states our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Terms of Use for our products and services you use. Certain Narwal products and services may provide separate privacy policies. For any conflicts between this Policy and those separate privacy policies, you understand that the latter shall prevail, while anything not specifically covered is subject to this Privacy Policy.

If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Service. By accessing or using our Service, you agree to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of our Service after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes. We encourage you to check the Privacy Policy periodically for updates.
