Collection and Use of Information
Information Collected or Received from You
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve the Voyage India Platform and the Voyage India Services, to administer your use of the Voyage India Platform (including your Account, if you are an Account holder), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate the Voyage India Platform and the Voyage India Services.
Account Information. If you create an Account, including a Business Account, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, billing address. If you create an Account using your login credentials from one of your SNS Accounts, we’ll be able to access and collect your name and email address and other PII that your privacy settings on the SNS Account permit us to access. If you create an Account through the Site or one of your SNS Accounts, we may also collect your gender, date of birth and other information that is not considered PII because it cannot be used by itself to identify you.
Information You Provide to Voyage India. In order for us to be able to provide you with Voyage India Services, you will need to provide us with certain information, It’s possible that some of this information, such as the physical address or pick up location for the shipment, may be PII. In addition to collecting this information through your Account, we may collect information during email or telephone communications with you in the context of a transaction that you enter into through the Voyage India Platform. For example, if you are a Buyer and you choose to book a Quote, we may contact you directly to find out more information about the shipment you are making. We will also collect and store information about the transactions you enter into, such as information about the Freight Services you purchase or sell through the Voyage India Platform.
Information Collected Using Cookies and other Web Technologies.Like many website owners and operators, we use automated data collection tools such as Cookies and Web Beacons to collect certain information.

We use Log Data to administer the Voyage India Platform and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) Log Data to improve, customize and enhance the Voyage India Platform by expanding its features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences. We may use a person’s IP address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how the Voyage India Platform is used.
