How does laksela.lk use social media?
We use social media to promote our offers and to improve and facilitate our own services. For example, we have integrated social media plugins into the laksela.lk website. So, when you click on one of the buttons and register with your social media account, information is shared with your social media provider, and possibly presented on your social media profile to be shared with others in your network.
In addition to implementing these buttons, laksela.lk uses social media by maintaining accounts on several social media sites and by offering social apps. These social media services may allow you to share information with laksela.lk. When you register with a social media app, you will be told which information will be shared with our site. The information you choose to share with us may include the basic information that’s available in your social media profile, email address, status updates and your list of friends. This information is necessary to create a unique user experience either in the app itself or on our websites. It facilitates such things as personalising our website to suit your needs.
We may also enable you to sign in to laksela.lk services with your social media accounts. Your social media provider will be able to tell you more about how they use and process your data in such cases.
How does laksela.lk make use of mobile devices?
We may introduce apps for a variety of mobile devices and use versions of our regular website that have been optimised for mobile. These apps and mobile websites process the personal details you give us in much the same way as our website does – and they also allow you to use location services to find nearest collection points of laksela.lk.
