SidhaMedia takes the private nature of your personal information seriously.

This privacy policy describes how we treat the information we collect when you visit and use our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to SidhaMedia’s websites choose to interact with SidhaMedia in ways that require SidhaMedia to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SidhaMedia gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for SidhaMedia to provide a username and email address. In each case, SidhaMedia collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SidhaMedia.
SidhaMedia 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

Aggregated Statistics

SidhaMedia may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, SidhaMedia may monitor the most popular collections on SidhaMedia.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

SidhaMedia 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 SidhaMedia’s behalf or to provide services available at SidhaMedia’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 SidhaMedia’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 SidhaMedia or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SidhaMedia 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 SidhaMedia may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, SidhaMedia 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, SidhaMedia discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when SidhaMedia believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SidhaMedia, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a SidhaMedia website and have supplied your email address, SidhaMedia 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 SidhaMedia 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. SidhaMedia 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.
