We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the personal information in our possession. All online transactions are done on a secure server.

Choice/Opt-out

 

For e-newsletter subscribers, when we take contacts from our team’s Google contact list and send the newsletter, we are not taking people’s permission to use their email address. In every form that we get filled for the subscription, we ask people to tick a mark to ‘agree to our terms and conditions’ which involves a term for using their email address to send the e-newsletter.. So, anyone engaging with us automatically receives our e-newsletter and in case one doesn’t want it, they can unsubscribe by clicking on unsubscribe. Users of our site will always be notified if their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this to ensure our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which information was collected.
