Kothrud.com collects personally identifiable information when you send us content for publication in the form of a sign-up. We may ask for your name, email address, birth date, gender, pincode, occupation, industry, personal interests etc. Once you have sent us this information and sign in to our services, you are given a unique ‘Kothrud.com ID’ and are not anonymous to us anymore.
3. Use of information by Kothrud.com
Kothrud.com uses information for two general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see and to contact you about specials and new products. Kothrud.com will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties.
Kothrud.com may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties when:
- We have your consent to share the information;
- We need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested and given your consent;
- We have to cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities;
- When we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights and related property of our service partners and that of its visitors;
- Kothrud.com uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure.
Kothrud.com may amend this policy from time to time. Kothrud.com is a free website and the majority of our revenues are derived from advertising. Our paid services are subject to change at any given. In order to attract and retain advertisers, we aggregate all personal demographic data and provide the results to advertisers so that they will understand the value of Kothrud.com members as an aggregated advertising audience.
We understand that our number one asset is our ‘members’ and we will never knowingly do anything to harm the trust you have bestowed on us. When you become a member of Kothrud.com, or subscribe to our newsletters, we ask you a series of general demographic questions. We then compile the information that you provide us with the information other members provide us and make the compiled result available to our advertisers and partners.
We use any information voluntarily you give us to enhance your experience in our site, which is to provide you with interactive or personalized elements on the sites and to better prepare future content based on your interests. We aggregate this tracking information to determine which areas of our site members like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We don’t track what individual members read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
We also use the information that is gathered to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience’s demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. Members may unsubscribe to any of our electronic newsletters at any time by following the instructions contained at the end of every newsletter.
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on Union Leader Corporation and relating to our Web site.
Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable)
We share aggregate information with our partners and advertisers. For example, visitor traffic is logged so we can count user sessions, identify our customer base and make improvements to meet user preferences. Gender and zip code information is collected at the time of site registration to help us better serve our readers and advertisers. Also, clicks from an advertiser’s banner or tile to that advertiser’s Web site are logged and reported to the advertiser. No personally identifiable information is collected in these operations.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the Union Leader Corp. is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
Notification of changes
If we change our privacy or registration policy on this Web site that further affects information we gather, we will post those changes to this privacy statement and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
