Information Collected Through Technology

We constantly endeavour to make our sites more interesting, user-friendly, useful and valuable. Use of technology is an integral part of this endeavour. For instance, when you log-in to our site, we collect your IP address. This provides a valuable insight into our customers’ habits like the frequency with which they visit various parts of our sites. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information.
Our websites also use “cookies” (pieces of information that a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the website). Cookies help the site to remember who you are. This feature is available in all computers. You can however choose to turn off this feature. However, if you choose to turn cookies off, you won’t be able to access many features that make your web experience smoother (like the features mentioned above) and some of our services will not function properly.
We also use a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, including “web beacons” (small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites).Use of technical methods enable us to analyze the traffic patterns on our websites, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of our websites. Some of these technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to a third party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We also use these technical methods in e-mails that we send to our guests/customers to determine whether they have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. The information collected through these technical methods may be in a form that is personally identifiable.
Our sites also advertise for third parties called “network advertisers”. Network advertisers who place advertisements on our websites may also use cookies and web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information. You may not be aware that this information is being collected. At times, we may have access to information from web beacons and cookies used by network advertisers on our sites and this information may enable us to identify other sites that you have visited that are also associated with such network advertiser. However, once you’ve clicked on an advertisement that takes you out of our site, our Privacy Policy is no longer applicable and you are then guided by the privacy policy of the advertiser.
We, our service providers, advertisers and affiliates also have access to various types of non-personally identifiable information when you visit any of our sites. This include current IP address, type of browser and OS you are using, the domain name of your ISP, the web pages and sites you have visited before and after you visit our site, your location information, the content you have accessed and the advertisements you have viewed, etc.

However, it is possible to control what data you share through some social networking sites’ privacy settings. For this you must refer to their privacy policies and terms of use.

Information Collected from Others

We may also supplement personally identifiable information that we have collected directly from our customers/visitors/guests with information that may be accessible from third parties and other members / affiliates of the Company.

USE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION

The Company may use your personally identifiable information in a variety of ways, including but not limited to sending you promotional material and sharing your information with third parties to enable them to send you promotional material.

Profitech infrastructure Private Limited, Licensees and Co-Branding Participants

Personally identifiable information collected under this Privacy Policy is shared and used by Profitech infrastructure Private Limited (“the Company”) for many purposes. For example, your personal information may be used to send you promotional material about goods and services (including special offers and promotions) either offered by the Company or offered by third parties and affiliates.

Please bear in mind, however, that when you purchase or request products or services from the Company, promotional material may accompany delivery of that product or service.
The Company may also use your personal information for many purposes other than sending you promotional material (referred to as “Operational Uses”). To cite an example, we may use your information to complete transactions requested by you (such as your purchase of a product or service offered on our websites), or to send you administrative communications either about your account with us or about features of our websites, including any future changes to this Privacy Policy.
In addition to using your personal information within the Company, the Company may share your personal information with entities (referred to as “Licensees”) that offer products and/or services under brand names owned by the Company. For example, an enterprise that publishes and sells publications under any brand name owned by the Company would be such a licensee.
The Company may also share your information with entities that offer products and/or services that are co-branded with the Company’s brand name. When the Company shares personal information with third parties acting as licensees and co-branding participants, these licensees and co-branding participants are permitted to use the personal information only for the purpose of a licensed or a co-branded product or service and for no other purpose..
You may engage in transactions (such as purchasing products or services) without registering and logging onto our websites (“Non-Registered Transactions”). These transactions may be either with us or with other affiliated members of the Company. An example of such a transaction would be purchase of items through the Company’s e-commerce service without registering and logging on that website. When you engage in Non-Registered Transactions your information will not be shared with third parties and will not be used by any member of the Company to send you promotional material other than the member involved in your transaction, except as separately permitted by other provisions of this Privacy Policy.
The Company may also convert your personally identifiable information into non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals or by removing personal identification characteristics (like your name) that make the information personally identifiable to you. There are no restrictions under this Privacy Policy upon the right of the Company to aggregate or de-personalize your personal information and the Company may use and/or share with third parties, the resulting non-personally identifiable information in any way it deems fit.

Promotions, Products, or Services Offered by Third Parties

When you participate in Sponsored Activities, you will either be required or requested to agree that the sponsor or its business associate may use your personal information (including, in some cases, your e-mail address) in accordance with the sponsor or business associate’s privacy practices.

Entities That Facilitate Communication and Transactions with You

At times the Company may hire entities to help deliver products or services, like a logistics organisation that delivers a package or an enterprise that helps distribute prizes. In those instances, there is a need to share your information with these entities.
Sometimes the Company also works with other enterprises that help either gather your information or communicate with you. Except as separately permitted by other provisions of this Privacy Policy, these enterprises are allowed to gather, receive and use your information only for the purposes described herein or as required by law.

Entities Previously Authorized by You to Obtain Your Information

In certain circumstances, you may have authorized a third party to obtain your personal information from the Company and to use that information in accordance with such third party’s own privacy policy. For example, in using an online shopping service, you may have authorized that shopping service to obtain from the service’s participating third-party merchants (including the Company) information about your purchases conducted through the shopping service.
The Company will provide such entities only such information that you authorize, except as separately permitted under other provisions of this Privacy Policy.

In the event that we sell a business, we will endeavour to include in the Sale Agreement stipulation requiring the purchaser to treat your personally identifiable information in the same manner required by this Privacy Policy, including any amendments thereof. In the light of this provision, nothing impeded our right to transfer your information to a purchaser in these circumstances.
