We will not disclose your personal data to any third parties for marketing purposes.
This is the privacy and cookies policy for www.munchbox.hk (the “website”).
The website is operated by Munchbox Limited (“MunchBox”, “we”, “us” and “our”). For the purposes of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap 486) (“PDPO”), we are the data user.
Our privacy and cookies policy describes the ways we capture your personal data as well as what we do with it and what controls you have.

Our Core Commitment To You
We are committed to protecting your privacy online. We know that providing personal data is an act of trust and we take that trust seriously. We appreciate that you do not want the personal data you provide to us distributed indiscriminately or used in ways you would not expect. MunchBox will not disclose your personal data to any third parties for marketing purposes. Furthermore, communications of MunchBox news or offers will only be sent to you where you are happy to receive these.
For your ease of reading, we have set out the key sections of our policy below.
We may update this policy from time to time by changing it on the website. You may therefore want to return here regularly to view our most up to date policy.

When you visit the website, we may automatically collect additional information about you, such as the type of internet browser you use, the website from which you have come to the website and your IP address (the unique address which identifies your computer on the internet) which is automatically recognised by our web server. You cannot be identified from this information and it is only used to assist us in providing an effective service on the website, to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use, to assist us in the detection of fraud, to help identify problems with our server and to administer the website.
Cookies are small pieces of information which are issued to your computer when you visit a website and which store and sometimes track information about your use of that website. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web session and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the website and will last for longer. Although they do identify a user's computer, cookies do not personally identify users.
We may also engage third parties to track and analyse non-personally identifiable data from the website. We use the data collected by such third parties to help us administer and combine the information that we provide about you with other information that they have collected. This privacy and cookies policy does not cover such third parties’ use of the data.
Some of the cookies used by our website are set by us, and some by or with the help of third parties who are delivering services on our behalf.

Information Sharing And Disclosure
We are committed to protecting your personal data. We will not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent except where:
Where you have referred a new customer to us your first name and first initial of your surname will be shared with the person you referred to us and you agree to that sharing.
In the event that we undergo re-organisation or are sold to a third party, you agree that any personal data we hold about you may be transferred to that re-organised entity or third party.
Companies and individuals registered in our affiliate program receive aggregate information about customers that they direct to us through links on their website. No personally identifiable information is provided to affiliate members; the information collected from our affiliates is used strictly for the affiliate program and will not be used for general marketing purposes.
We also provide analyses of our customers in the aggregate to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties. We do this so that we and our business partners can understand our customers better, and so we can keep bringing you first-rate services. We may also disclose, on an anonymous basis, statements made by our customers such as comments or feedback we receive on or products or service. At no time, however, will we disclose personal data about specific customers to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties.
The website may contain links to external sites. We have no control over your personal data submitted by you, if any, to other third party websites and we assume no responsibility for the privacy practices or the content of those sites. Therefore, please read carefully any privacy policies on those sites before either agreeing to their terms or using those sites.
We have implemented technology and security features, as well as strict internal guidelines, to safeguard the privacy of your personal data from loss, alteration, unauthorised access or improper use. We will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary. Whilst we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, alteration, unauthorised access or improper use of information will never occur, we use all reasonable efforts to prevent it.
While we make every effort to ensure that your information is secure on our system, you should bear in mind that submission of information over the Internet is never entirely secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Your account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. You can play an important role in keeping your personal data secure by maintaining the confidentiality of your password used on the website. We recommend that you change your password from time to time for additional security. Please advise us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account by any other Internet user or any other breach of security.
Only key members of our personnel have access to personal data. Backups are run to prevent loss of information, and our Internet servers are housed in secure facilities.
It is advisable to close your browser when you have finished your user session to help ensure others do not access your personal data if you use a shared computer or a computer in a public place.
Storage Of Your Information
Personal data is processed and stored in our databases on secure servers located in Hong Kong. This is necessary in order to process the information. Information submitted by you may be transferred by us to our other offices and/or to the third parties mentioned in the circumstances described above.

You have a legal right under the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap 486) to request in writing to the Personal Data Privacy Officer of MunchBox Limited:
