Information submitted by you online (such as information about products you purchase utilizing the Services, your first and last name, address, phone number, and email address) may be shared with companies with which we have a commercial relationship, including companies through which you reached Doba. For example, if you make a purchase with us because of a special offer made through another site acting as a distributor of our products, in that circumstance you will be considered their customer as well. We may also share information about you (including first and last name, address, email address, and phone number) with our marketing partners and/or other companies with whom we have a commercial relationship so they may contact you about information and services that we feel you would benefit from.

In order to provide evaluation, analysis, or other business services, we may also share your non-personal information with third parties. For example, we may use aggregated data to help partners (e.g., advertising service providers) understand the effectiveness, feedback, and usage trends of their services.

In the event that you elect to register or log in to Doba utilizing a third-party account (such as Facebook, Google, etc.), we may collect, store, and utilize your personal information within the scope of your authorization. We warrant that we shall process your personal information in strict accordance with our Terms and Conditions and all applicable laws and regulations. You are advised to thoroughly review the third party’s privacy policy and user agreement. Should you refuse the collection, utilization, or transmission of your personal information by the third party in the provision of services, it may result in your inability to utilize our services and features.

7. How Your Information is Transferred

We will not transfer your personal information to any company, organization, or individual without obtaining your explicit consent.

We will not, unless required by law, transfer your payment information to any other party. However, if you choose to use a credit/debit/prepaid card, GCash or Maya to pay for your orders, your card information will be transferred to a third-party card payment service provider, for payment processing purposes only. In this case, your card information will be subject to the third-party’s privacy policy as well.

In the event of a merger, acquisition or bankruptcy liquidation, asset transfer, and other related transaction, if a personal information transfer is involved, we will require the new entity or organization holding your personal information to continue to be bound by this Privacy Policy through an agreement or other appropriate measures, and we will require such subject to take confidentiality and security measures of a degree no less than the requirements of this privacy policy to process personal information.

The embedment of third-party plug-ins may vary by service. For details, please visit the corresponding service page and check each service's specific terms and relevant pages. You can also contact us at [email protected] for a reply within 7 working days.

Third-party social media or other services are operated by the respective third parties. Your use of these services, including any information you provide to them, is subject to their own service terms and privacy policies, not Doba’s Privacy Policy. Please carefully read their terms and policies. This Privacy Policy only applies to the personal information we collect and does not apply to any third-party services or information usage rules. If you find any risks in using third-party services, it is recommended that you stop using them to protect your rights and interests and contact us in a timely manner.

10. Your Rights

Privacy laws applicable in the Philippines and in your country other than the Philippines may give you rights including, but not limited to:

Right to be informed: what personal information an organization is processing and why (we provide this information to you in this Policy).

- Right of access: you can request a copy of your data.

- Right of rectification: if the data held is inaccurate, you have the right to have it corrected.

- Right to erasure: you have the right to have your data deleted in certain circumstances. Doba may grant such requests allowed by the Data Privacy Act of the Philippines and other applicable laws in your country.

- Right to restrict processing: in limited circumstances, you have the right to request that processing is stopped but the data retained.

- Right to data portability: you can request a copy of certain data in a machine-readable form that can be transferred to another provider.

- Right to object: in certain circumstances (including where data is processed based on legitimate interests or for the purposes of marketing) you may object to that processing.

- Rights related to automated decision-making including profiling: there are several rights in this area where processing carried out on a solely automated basis results in a decision that has legal or significant effects for the individual. In these circumstances, your rights include the right to ensure that there is human intervention in the decision-making process.

- Rights to file a complaint with the National Privacy Commission of the Philippines and other related administrations in your country.

The particular rights which are applicable to you may vary depending on your country. You should make yourself aware of the rights you have under applicable privacy laws in your country.

You can access and edit most of your profile information by logging into Doba, and if you want to exercise any of your rights listed above, you can also contact our Data Protection Officer. For your protection and the protection of all of our users, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity before we can answer the above requests.

11. How Your Information is Protected

Doba takes every precaution to protect our user’s information. When a user submits sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and offline.

When our registration or order form asks a user to enter sensitive information (such as debit or credit card numbers, and GCash or Maya account numbers), that information is encrypted and protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just “surfing.” The order forms you fill out through the DobaShare application or web pages are also encrypted and transmitted securely to Doba.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information offline. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only authorized employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the web servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment, behind a locked cage in a locked facility.

12. Children's Privacy

The Services are restricted to users who are under the age of 18 or the equivalent age as specified by law in your jurisdiction (in certain cases this age may be higher due to local regulatory requirements, please see your local privacy policy for more information). We do not knowingly collect any information about or market to children, minors, or anyone under the age of 18 or the equivalent age as specified by law in your jurisdiction. If you are less than 18 years old or the equivalent age as specified by law in your jurisdiction, we request that you do not submit information to us. If we become aware that a child, minor, or anyone under the age of 18 or the equivalent age as specified by law in your jurisdiction has registered with us and provided us with personal information, we will take steps to terminate that person’s registration.

13. Global Transfer of Information

You understand and agree that, as we provide products or services through resources and servers worldwide, we may store the information collected under this policy on servers in countries/regions other than the Philippines or provide your personal information to affiliates or third parties outside the Philippines, in compliance with applicable laws and regulations on cross-border transmission of personal information.

These jurisdictions may have different data protection laws or even no relevant laws. In such cases, we will ensure that your personal information is sufficiently protected. For example, we may ask for your consent to the cross-border transfer of personal information or implement security measures such as data de-identification before cross-border data transfer. If you do not approve the export of information or want to know more, please email [email protected]. We will take appropriate measures based on your email, but parts or all of the Services may become unavailable due to your disapproval of the export of information.

14. Changes To This Privacy Policy

Doba reserves the right to make any amendments, modifications, or changes to this privacy policy at any time to reflect the changes in our business, technology, and applicable law and practice. In the event of this policy’s modification, we will notify you of the latest policy here on this webpage (, send you email notifications regarding the modification, and/or post it on our official website. Please pay attention to the website and the email notifications we send to you for the latest updates of this policy. Although this policy may be modified, your rights under this policy will not be diminished without your explicit consent.

We will ask for your explicit consent again in accordance with applicable laws before we collect additional personal information from you or when we use or disclose your personal information for new purposes. Your continued use of the Services through a desktop, mobile application, and/or any other device constitutes your agreement to the updated privacy policy.
