Jungle Mei Mangal is committed to protecting your information. This privacy notice provides details about the information we collect about you, how we use it and how we protect it. It also explains your rights and how to contact us if you have questions about how we use your information.

Policy last updated: 1 Feb, 2019.

Scope of our privacy notice

In this privacy notice, references to “JMM”, “JungleMeiMangal”, “we” or “us” or “our” are to the JungleMeiMangal Charity. This notice applies to anyone who interacts with us in relation to our products and services (“you”, “your”, “rider”, “guest”, “visitor”, “biker”), via any channel (e.g. app, website, email, phone, walk-ins to JMM accommodations, leaving your details on www.junglemeimangal.com or accommodation recommendations via a third party travel agency, website etc.). We may give you additional privacy notices if required for specific interactions.

You can book your stay only through ‘mention booking’ involving Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, mobile number and email. There is no other booking method involving a partner, so there is no question of us sharing your personal data. If you share your personal details with any other channel that recommends us via reviews or search, please refer their privacy notice towards using your personal data.

JungleMeiMangal’s website is not aimed at travellers below 18 years, and we do not allow children to book accommodation or stay at our accommodations without a responsible adult. This privacy notice is therefore not aimed at children. If you provide us with information about your children, it is processed as described in this notice.

If you have any questions about this, please contact us.

Ways in which we obtain personal information

We obtain personal information from you and from other websites and others who recommend accommodation for you.

Where you provide us with information about other individuals (e.g. the names of others who you will stay at the accommodation you book), you must ensure that they have seen a copy of this privacy policy and are comfortable with you doing this.

Categories of personal information:

We process two categories of personal information about you and/or, where applicable, others whom you have booked accommodation for, namely:

  • Standard personal information (e.g. information we use to contact you, identify you or manage our relationship with you); and
  • Special categories of information (e.g. if you have indicated food preference or have chosen to let us know that you have a medical condition requiring special care during accommodations).

Purposes and lawful grounds of our processing personal information online

We process your personal information for the purposes set out in this notice, based on the legal grounds. Different legal grounds apply depending on what category of personal information we process. Standard personal information is normally processed by us on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of a contract, our or a third parties’ legitimate interests or law. Further information about this and special category processing grounds is set out below.

Standard personal information includes:

  • Contact Information: We collect your name, user name, address, e-mail address and telephone number(s); if you choose to connect through your social media accounts, your profile picture; and your country of residence, age, gender and date of birth;
  • Location Information: We may derive your approximate location from your IP address so that we show you more relevant content. If you have chosen allowing  access location services on your social accounts, we collect the precise location of your device when the social app is running both in the foreground and the background.
  • Transaction Information: We collect transaction details related to your use of our services, e.g. type of service requested, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, days booked/stayed, and other related transaction details. If someone else has referred you, we may associate that other person with you to ensure that you receive the information about his activities in future.
  • Account History: We collect details of your bookings and of contact we have had with you, such as complaints or incidents.
  • Usage and Preference Information: We collect information about how you interact with our website or other Services, including IP addresses, search terms and parameters and device information (you’ll find more information about this in our Cookie Statement)

  • Device Information: We collect information about your mobile device, including, for example, the hardware model, operating system and version, software and file names and versions, preferred language, unique device identifier, advertising identifiers, serial number, device motion information, and mobile network information to help us understand how our app is performing across a range of devices and to help us identify the cause of “crashes” and potential performance improvements.

  • CCTV: We may also collect your personal information if you access our premises and we use CCTV to monitor those premises.
  • WiFi: If you use WiFi offered at our accommodation, we will collect login information (which may include your email) and usage information that tells us how you use the WiFi.

Sometimes you may choose to give us special category information about you or others which may attract extra protections under data protection laws. For example:

  • Information about religious or philosophical beliefs may be revealed by food preferences (e.g. halal, kosher, etc.);
  • Information about health may be revealed by special requests for assistance or disability-friendly accommodation or if you require medical assistance during your stay; and
  • Information about sexual orientation may be revealed if you tell us that you are married or in a relationship and you also give us the name of your partner.

Purposes and lawful grounds of our processing physical personal information

  • Necessary for the performance of a contract: where we have a contract with you, we will process your personal information in order to fulfil that contract (i.e. to provide you and others you have booked accommodation for with products and services).
  • Other Information. You may otherwise choose to provide us information when you fill in a form, conduct a search, update or provide identification(e.g. Aadhaar, voters card, Vehicle Registration Certificate, Vehicle Insurance etc), respond to surveys, post to community forums, participate in promotions, or use other JMM features (e.g. Buying our merchandise and accessories, participating in our campaigns)
  • In our or a third parties’ legitimate interests: details of those legitimate interests are set out in more detail below.
  • Where we are required to or is otherwise permitted by law

  • Processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest, on the basis of law: for example, if you are taken ill or have an accident at our accommodation, we may have to keep a record of the incident for health and safety purposes;
  • We have your consent: we would ask for any consent to process your special category data separately (your consent is not assumed simply because you have read this privacy notice);
  • Processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claims
