1. Who or what are we?
The data controller for the private data collected through this Platform is Mansarochan, a company incorporated and registered in India.
2. What knowledge do we gather about you?
2.1.1 Information gleaned from direct interactions
Registration information and other account details
• If you register with a Google account, we collect your first and last names, as well as your email address;
• If you register with a Facebook account, we collect your first and last names as they appear on the Facebook profile, as well as Facebook IDs and the URL to your Facebook profile picture. Suppose you have granted Facebook permission via their in-app privacy option (which appears just before registering on our Platform). In that case, we may collect your gender, age, or email address, depending on the permissions granted by you.
• If you register with your mobile phone number, we will collect that number.
• If you register with your Apple ID, you will be asked to provide your names as well as an email address. When you sign in to your Apple account, you can choose whether to share your email address with us.
Depending on the options you select when logging into our Services or engaging our Services, you may choose to provide the following additional personal data:
• Your name;
• Your email address;
• Your mobile number;
• A copy of your identification (driver's license, passport, or another card, whichever is most convenient for you) and a real-time image of your face if you have elected for the Platform's KYC verification. Keep in mind that the KYC verification process is currently limited to a small number of users.
• A copy of your vehicle's registration certificate (RC) if you elected to provide one when listing your vehicle on our Services. Please keep in mind that the option to provide RC is only available to a select number of users at the moment.
Your Mansarochan account must be validated.
We validate Mansarochan users' accounts using SMS verification to ensure that each account belongs to a genuine and unique user. This validation process begins when you submit your first ad listing through our Services. To verify your Mansarochan account before posting your ad listing, we will send you an SMS to the mobile number you provide. This procedure is completely free.
If you do not agree to validate the account, your account will remain active, and you will have limited functionality when using our Services. Additionally, you will be unable to receive or respond to messages from other users.
If you create multiple Mansarochan accounts using the same mobile number and verify them all via SMS, each of those accounts will have limited functionality, and you will be prompted to choose one of them. Your selected account will revert to full functionality, while the remaining accounts will retain limited functionality.
Within 24 hours, each user may request a maximum of five SMS messages containing verification codes. Each account is validated only once until the user successfully verifies it via SMS.
Once your Mansarochan account has been validated, it will remain linked to the mobile number used for SMS verification. You must contact our Customer Support team to change the mobile number associated with your Mansarochan account.

When you utilize our chat feature to interact with other users, we collect the information you choose to share with them.

Depending on the payment system, you will be asked to provide us with your payment and credit card details, which we will pass on to the payment service provider to process your payment. We don't save your credit card information unless you want to save it from simplifying recurring payments by eliminating the need to re-enter your information each time. In these instances, we store only the cardholder's name, the card type's expiration date, the card type, as well as the latter four digits of the card number. We don't store any credit card code verification values and instead send them along with your credit card number in the encrypted format to our payment service provider for processing.
We process the details above to carry out our contract with you effectively.
3.2 To enhance your experience on the Platform and to create new features for the Platform
1. We use clickstream data to:
• Personalize the experience with our Services, such as by providing you with more specific search results.
• To ascertain the amount of time you spend on our Platform and how you work through it to ascertain your preferences and develop our Services based on this information. For instance, based on the content you have clicked, we can provide you with suggestions for additional content to visit.
• To monitor and report on the campaign's success to our business partners and internal business review.
2. If you supply us with your location details, we can use it for the following purposes:
• To collect anonymous and aggregated data on the characteristics and behavior of Mansarochan users, including conducting market research, segmenting users, and creating anonymous profiles.
• To optimize our Services' success and to tailor the content we provide to you. For instance, we use location data to view ad listings in your vicinity to enhance your purchasing experience. Google Maps is made into our Platform for this reason. It means that Google and we are both accountable for processing your location data in connection with Google Maps. In any case, we will not use your location data for any reason other than the ones described in this Privacy Statement. On the other hand, Google can process such location data for its purposes, as detailed in the Google Privacy Statement, which can be viewed. Google Maps' Terms of Service govern Google Maps use through our Platform.
• To monitor and analyze your interactions with third-party advertising banners that we display on our Platform.
3. Using your account details, which includes your email ID and phone number, we identify the various devices (desktop, mobile, and tablet) from which you access our Platform. This enables us to associate your Platform operation across devices and enables us to provide you with a consistent experience regardless of which device you use.
4. We use the photos, descriptions, and prices you include in your ad listings to train machine learning models that help us personalize search results based on ad ranking and user interest, improve the recognition and presentation of ad listings, enhance the search feature, and increase the probability of a successful sale. It enables us to enhance our Services and offer you a more personalized user experience.
5. To display and suggest advertisements on our Services that might be of interest to you, we employ algorithms that analyze your browsing habits, the products you purchase, clickstream data, your user ID, and, if you have permitted us, your location data. We use automated decision-making to improve our Services and have a more personalized user experience by showing you more appropriate ad listings.
6. We view and review your chat messages with other users through our Platform's chat feature to improve our products and provide you with a better user experience (e.g., to identify sold items and provide you with active listings only). As a result, we build and train machine learning models and algorithms to analyze your chat content automatically. Our machine learning specialists can manually review exemplary chat content to develop and train our machine learning models. In these instances, chosen machine learning experts evaluating the chat content have extremely limited access privileges. We attempt to de-identify chat content as much as possible during this analysis phase by using a scanning filter to detect and hide personal data such as names, phone numbers, and email addresses. However, in certain instances outside our control, the chat content can reveal some personal information that you have chosen to provide.
7. If you agree to opt for KYC verification through our Services, we will request that you snap a real-time picture of your face and an image of your identity proof in fast succession to verify your identity. After completing the KYC process, your account will be deemed validated if the image on the identity proof matches the image of your face captured. This type of verification can assist you in establishing faith with other users and obtaining more responses to your listings.
8. If you agree to include the RC when posting an ad for your car on our Services, we can request an image of your RC along with images of your car during the posting flow. When you submit your listing, if the RC information matches the registration number of your vehicle, your ad will say, "RC checked by MANSAROCHAN." This type of verification can assist you in establishing faith with other users and obtaining more responses to your listings. Internally, the RC will be checked, and no information about the RC will be reflected on our Services.
We process the information above to ensure the proper execution of our contract with you and to further our genuine interest in enhancing your experience with our Services.

2. We view and review your chat messages with other users through our Services' chat feature to ensure customer loyalty, ensure user protection, and preventing fraud. As a result, we build and train machine learning models and algorithms that allow us to detect and prevent inappropriate and fraudulent user activity automatically.

However, in certain instances outside our control, the chat content can reveal some personal information that you have chosen to provide. Only in exceptional situations and circumstances do our consumer protection and security experts manually review chat material, for example, if we have clear indicators of fraudulent activity. In these conditions, designated consumer protection and security professionals reviewing the chat content are granted extremely limited access privileges.
3. To prevent and detect fraud on our Services, we use algorithms to identify suspicious or fraudulent user actions based on certain details, such as user activity and posted material, resulting in us suspending or terminating certain user accounts. When there is a great level of certainty that an account or activity is fraudulent, automated banning occurs. Otherwise, human review occurs by selecting consumer protection and security specialists with extremely limited access privileges. We employ this method of automated decision-making to identify and prevent fraud and keep our Services safe and stable for our customers.
