Our goal is to provide you with a robust online experience while safeguarding your privacy. INDOlink collects information online primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use the services provided. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked at various times to provide information such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, or other personally identifying information. In addition, we collect information about your use of INDOlink's services as well as your likes/dislikes, interests and preferences from your survey responses and usage information.
We request this information to provide our strongest value to you - a personalized online experience, so we do everything we can to make INDOlink your preferred online destination, and to provide you the content, products and services that might interest you.
The following describes how your personal information is treated as you make full use of INDOlink's many offerings either on its own or through one of its strategic partners. Our information gathering and dissemination practices, as described in this policy statement, apply only to INDOlink family of sites, and not to other companies or organization's Web sites to which we link.
User's Domain NameWhen a person visits our site, our web server automatically recognizes only the domain name of the visitor, but not the email address of the visitor. We collect only the domain name, but not the e-mail address of visitors to our site, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, or user-specific information on what pages users access or visit.
Voluntary InformationThe personal information that you choose to disclose to INDOlink is completely a voluntary act. The only way we know something about you personally is if you tell us about yourself by email or via a feedback form, or register for a personalized service (chat forums, instant messaging, matrimonial and dating services, classified ads, horoscopes, newsletters, email, e-greetings, internet radio, interactive games, training courses, online shopping, etc.), or participate in user surveys, sweepstakes or contests held by INDOlink.
Partners and Other SitesSome of our services are offered in conjunction with partner companies. In order to provide these services, our partners may ask you for some personal information. For example, when you sign up for our instant messanger or when you shop online at any of INDOlink sites, our partner who provides those services asks you for some personal information. Our partners are all upstanding companies that will treat your personal information responsibly. But, since we don't own these companies, we can't speak for them on privacy issues. Promotions, contests and sweepstakes running on INDOlink also may be sponsored by other companies. These companies may choose to collect personal information from you. If you don't want your information collected by these sponsors, you can decide not to participate in the promotion, contest or sweepstakes. You should also be aware that our advertisers or Web sites that have links on our site may collect personally identifiable information about you. This privacy statement does not address the information practices of those Web sites or advertisers.
We may share only aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers (for example - we may tell an advertiser that "x percent of our audience is between age 25-40"). This is not linked to any personal information that can identify an individual person. We do this so that our advertisers understand your needs and tastes better, helping us to keep bringing you first-rate services that might interest you. Moreover, we always give you an option of whether or not you want to receive any information about offers and promotions from us.
We will take extra precautions in dealing with personal information of registered users under the age of 18. However, these precautions are just a start, and there are some actions we cannot control, where we need help from the child's parent or guardian as well.
Mailing ListWe will occasionally send you emails keeping you updated about changes, new features and special member offers, and various promotions from our partners and sponsors, etc.
Opting-OutWe offer the users the opportunity to opt-out, terminate the service, or no longer receive future communications from us. Simply send an e-mail to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org with appropriate removal instructions.
SecurityOur security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our users. If we believe that INDOlink property or an individual's safety or security is at risk, we reserve the right to disclose this information to proper court or law enforcement agencies.
One last thing to keep in mind -- whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others. If you post personal information in public places, others may send you unsolicited e-mail messages. Always be smart about the information you provide online.
