Privacy Policy

Introduction
We know your privacy is important to you.  It’s important to us, too. So this Privacy Policy will help you, as a user of the Services, understand what information we may gather about you, how we use it, and how we work to protect it.

What our privacy promise says
Our privacy promises cover how we treat your data and put you in control of what happens to it. We will always explain clearly what data we’re collecting about you and why.

We will only collect data for fulfilling our responsibilities as a public service by giving you a better experience with improvised services.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

To the website visitors
Like most website operators, Aarthiknews collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

Aarthiknews’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Aarthiknews’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Aarthiknews may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Aarthiknews also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Aarthiknews does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

who sign up for Aarthiknews to provide a username and email address. In each case, Aarthiknews collects such information only in so far as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Aarthiknews.

Aarthik news does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
You have control over your Personal Information and can change your Registered Account, Subscription information, or other information saved by us, including how much of your Personal Information is publicly available in your profile, by visiting the Website and reviewing your settings.

Aarthiknews discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Aarthiknews’s behalf or to provide services available at Aarthiknews’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Aarthiknews’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Aarthiknews or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Aarthiknews goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Aarthiknews may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, Aarthiknews will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Aarthiknews discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Aarthiknews believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Aarthiknews, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Aarthiknews website and have supplied your email address, Aarthiknews may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Aarthiknews and its products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Aarthiknews takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

You should also be aware that if you submit information to “chat rooms,” “forums” or “message boards” such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.

Aggregated Statistics
We perform statistical, demographic and marketing analysis of users of the Aarthiknews Services, and their subscribing patterns, for improving customer relationships and for the development purposes and to generally inform advertisers about the nature of our subscriber base. We use this information for analysis purposes, including analysis to improve customer relationships.
Aarthiknews may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Aarthiknews does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Cookies
A cookie is a small amount of data which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookies to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. However, to protect your privacy, most browsers only permit a website to access the cookies that the same website has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Aarthiknews visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Aarthiknews’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Aarthiknews’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Sponsored advertisements
Advertisements appearing on any Aarthiknews websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Aarthiknews and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Links to Third Party Sites
This privacy policy only applies to information collected by Aarthiknews. This privacy policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Aarthiknews does not own or control, or employees that Aarthiknews does not manage. Our website may contain links to third party websites. Any information you provide to, or that is collected by, third-party sites may be subject to the privacy policies of those sites, if any. We encourage you to read such privacy policies of any third-party sites you visit. It is the sole responsibility of such third parties to adhere to any applicable restrictions on the disclosure of your personally-identifying information, and Aarthiknews and its affiliates shall not be liable for wrongful use or disclosure of your personally-identifying information by any third party.

Security
All non-personally-identifying information, potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying-information described above is stored on restricted database servers.

Address Book Data
Any external address book data (email contacts, etc.) that a user voluntarily gives Aarthiknews access to will only be used for the described feature (looking up friends, etc.), and will not be stored or repurposed.

Choice to Unsubscribe
If we ever send you information by email concerning new products, services or information that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with an email address by which you may request to unsubscribe the notices in future.

Privacy Policy Changes
We evaluate this privacy policy periodically in light of changing business practices, technology and legal requirements. As a result, it is updated from time to time. Any such changes will be posted on this page. If we make a significant or material change in the way we use or share your personal information, you will be notified via email and/or prominent notice within the Services at least 30 days prior to the changes taking effect.
