Privacy Policy

We appreciate you visiting The Tamizhkalam Group's website. Your privacy is something we value highly and see as essential to conducting business. This policy explains the data we gather about you when you access, download, or use our website or mobile applications to receive information, goods, services, and content on mobile or internet-connected devices or in other ways.

User consent

You agree and give consent to our collection, use, and sharing of your personal information as described in this policy by using services provided by The Tamizhkalam Group websites (for instance, when you register for an account, communicate with us on our sites or applications, or through social media).

Usage of our Mobile Applications

Our mobile applications are subject to this policy as well. The most recent version of mobile applications should always be used. We may not be responsible or liable for any damages resulting from the collection, storage, and processing of your personal information as per an older version of a mobile application if you use an older version of these apps and/or access discontinued services.

Personal Information Collected

You can only provide us with personal information voluntarily. Name, address, email address, information about your interests in and use of different services, as well as other types of personally identifiable data, may all be collected by us. In order to continue interacting with you and providing the Services, we will retrieve information from any other accounts you use to register, such as those on Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, etc.

You might enter your name and email address, for instance, if you want to sign up for our newsletters, participate in our discussion forum, or send us feedback. When using our "Mail This Story" feature, you may also enter the name and email address of another person in addition to your own. Without your express permission, we will not give or sell any of the information you provide to any private company or individual. We might also gather more information from you at other times, such as when you give us feedback or comments, alter your email or content preferences, take our survey, or communicate with us in any other way.

Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors

Links to other websites whose privacy policies may differ from ours occasionally appear on our website(s). Visitors should review the privacy policies on the other sites since we have no control over the data that is provided to or collected by these third parties.

The advertisements you see on our pages are served by a trustworthy third party as well. Our third-party advertiser may set or recognize a special "cookie" on your browser as part of the ad-serving process and use information (excluding your name, address, and email address) about your visits to this and other websites in order to deliver advertisements for products and services you may find interesting.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

We automatically collect and store certain information about your visit if you only use our website(s) to browse, read pages, or download information without registering for any of our services. You cannot be personally identified from this information.

The type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the operating system you are using (e.g., Windows 98 or Mac OS), the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Satyam Online, Mantra Online, VSNL), the date and time of your visit, the pages you visit, geographical information like Country, Region, or City, etc. are the types of information that are automatically gathered. We occasionally use this anonymous data to enhance the look and feel of our website(s), as well as its content and primarily to enhance your browsing experience.

Opting out

The unique DoubleClick cookie ID on the user's browser is overwritten with the word "OPT-OUT" if they choose to opt out using the Ads Settings. The opt-out cookie can no longer be connected to a specific browser because there is no longer a distinct cookie ID.

Log File Information

When you visit our site, application, or service, we automatically log a small amount of data, including your IP address, about the Internet connection of your computer and your mobile device. Your IP address is a number that tells internet-connected devices where to send information, like the pages you visit. Your IP address, the name of your computer, the type, and version of your browser, the CPU speed, and the connection speed are all pieces of information that we automatically receive and log from your browser. Additionally, we might gather log data from your device, such as its location, IP address, name, serial number, or unique identification number (such as the UDiD on an iOS device), operating system, browser type, and version, CPU speed, and connection speed, among other things.

Clear GIFs

In order to confidentially track the online behavior of our Users without personally identifying them, we may use "clear GIFs" (Web Beacons). In order to track which emails are opened by recipients, we might also use clear GIFs in HTML-based emails we send to our users. We use this information, among other things, to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to customize our sites and services to the interests of our users, to track user traffic within our sites in order to enhance their functionality, quality, and interactivity, and to provide advertisers with information about the regions from which our users originate without identifying any individual users.

Links to Other Sites

Links to other websites on the World Wide Web are available on our website(s). We have no control over these websites' privacy policies. Any information you provide after leaving our servers is used in accordance with the owner of the website you are visiting's privacy policies. For more details, it is advised to read their privacy policies.

Data Erasure

We keep your personal information as long as it's required for us to continue offering you services unless you specifically request that we delete it. Based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law, you can request that we delete your personal information and close your services account if you no longer want Us to use it (s). You can make a request to delete your information by sending a letter, an email with an electronic signature, or both to our designated grievance officers. Please be aware that if you have more than one account with Us, you will need to submit separate requests with each account's associated email address or phone number.

Information from Other Sources

We might acquire details about you from other sources, add them to the data we already have about you, and handle them in line with this Policy. Your account information and order information may be given to us if you provide it to the platform provider or another partner to whom we provide services.

Demographic and other information

In order to send you communications and promotions that are more specifically tailored to you, we might consult other sources of demographic and other information. Among other tools, we use Google Analytics to monitor user activity on our websites. We have enabled Google Analytics specifically to support display advertising in order to better understand the demographics and preferences of our users. The reports are anonymous and can't be connected to any specific, personally identifiable data that you might have given us. Using Google's Ads Settings options, you can choose not to use Google Analytics for display advertising and modify Google Display Network ads.

Additionally, we use comScore and Chartbeat analytics on our website. These tools use anonymous data that cannot be used to identify specific users in order to map marketing reach, penetration, benchmarking, and analyze content performance.

Links to third-party sites/ ad-servers

Links to other websites or applications may be found on the Sites. We have no control over the privacy policies that apply to such websites or applications. The use of any information you submit is subject to the privacy policies of the operators of the application you are visiting once you leave our servers (you can determine where you are by looking at the URL in the location bar on your browser). Our privacy statement might not match that one. If you can't access any of these sites' privacy policies via a link from the application's home page, you should get in touch with the developers of the application directly.

It is typically in the form of aggregated traffic statistics on different pages and content on our Sites when we present Information to our advertisers to help them understand our audience and verify the value of advertising on our Sites. When you visit our sites, we use third-party advertising companies to serve ads. These businesses may use information about your visits to this and other websites or applications, but not your name, address, email address, phone number, or other personally identifiable information, to deliver advertisements for products and services that may be of interest to you.

Without your permission, we do not share any personally identifiable information with other websites, advertisers, or ad servers.

Information use by the company

We are able to improve the Services and give you the most user-friendly experience thanks to the information provided by the users. We may also need your contact address when providing certain service(s) or Tamizhkalam(s). The Company may use the aforementioned user information to maintain, protect, and improve the Services (including advertising and personalization on the Sites) as well as for the development of new services since all necessary information is service-specific. With the option to subscribe or unsubscribe, we may also send promotional emails to your email address or other personally identifiable information about our services, as well as updates and features about the goods and services of third parties (where feasible). However, we might use your email address for administrative or non-marketing purposes (such as notifying you of major changes, for customer service purposes, billing, etc.). Any personally identifiable information that you provide that is freely available and/or accessible in the public domain, such as any comments, messages, blogs, or scribbles posted on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc., will not be regarded as sensitive.

Any user-generated content that is posted, uploaded, conveyed, or communicated in the public areas of the Sites is considered published content and is not covered by this Policy.

We might not be able to provide you with certain services on the Sites if you decide not to provide personally identifiable information on the Sites. When you open your account, we'll try our best to let you know about the same. In any case, we won't be held accountable or liable if we can't provide you with certain services because you haven't provided the necessary personal information.

When you register for the Sites or Services, we may occasionally contact you about updating your personal information so that we can offer Users features that we think they might find useful or interesting.

Information Sharing

In the few instances listed below, the Company may disclose your Information to any third party without first obtaining the User's consent:

  1. Whenever disclosure is requested or mandated by law, a court, a governmental agency, or other authority, in order to verify identity, prevent, detect, or investigate an incident—including but not limited to a cyber incident, or to prosecute and punish offenders. These disclosures are made in the good faith belief that doing so is reasonably necessary for upholding the terms of this Agreement or in accordance with the law.
  2. The Company intends to use the Information to carry out its operations and to share it with the officers and staff of the other companies in its group who will be processing personal data on its behalf. We also make sure that the recipients of this information consent to processing it in accordance with our instructions, this Policy, and any other applicable confidentiality and security safeguards.
  3. The Company may provide Information to our advertisers and third parties in order to better understand our audience and demonstrate the effectiveness of advertising on our sites; however, this information is typically presented in the form of statistics on the traffic to different pages within our site that have been aggregated.
  4. The Company may share information about your activities on the Sites with third-party social media platforms to add to your publicly viewable social wall; however, you will have the option to set your privacy settings, allowing you to control what information you choose to share or not with others.
  5. When we have reason to believe that revealing User information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with our rights or our Sites, whether intentionally or unintentionally, or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities, we may share your information in order to enforce or protect our rights or those of any or all of our employees, directors, officers, associates, or directors.

Accessing and updating personal information

When you use the Services or Sites (or any of its sub-sites), we make good faith efforts to grant you access to your personal information as and when requested by you. We also make sure that any personal information or sensitive personal data or information found to be inaccurate or deficient is corrected or amended as soon as practically possible, subject to any requirement that such personal information or sensitive personal data or information be retained by law or other legal requirements. We may refuse to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, would be highly impractical (for example, requests concerning information stored on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. Before granting such requests, we require each individual user to identify themselves and the information they wish to view, update, or delete. Anywhere we offer information access and correction, we do so without charge unless doing so would involve an unreasonable amount of work. After you delete your information, it might take some time for it to be removed from our active servers and it might still be present in our backup systems due to the way we maintain some services and/or due to requirements under applicable laws for preserving or retaining information.

Information security

We implement the necessary security precautions to guard against unauthorized access to, as well as unauthorized data alteration, disclosure, or destruction. To prevent unauthorized access to the systems where we store personal data, these include internal reviews of our data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures, such as appropriate physical security and encryption. The Tamizhkalam Group's websites securely store all data collected there in a database under the company's control. The database is kept on servers protected by a firewall, and access to the servers is strictly controlled and password-protected. No security system is impenetrable, despite how effective our security measures are. Both the security of our database and the safety of the information you provide while sending it to us over the Internet is not guaranteed by us. Of course, anyone with Internet access can access any information you include in a posting to a discussion area.

When you visit or use our sites or services, we use third-party advertising companies to serve ads. These businesses may use information about your visits to or use of specific websites, mobile applications, or services (but not your name, address, email address, phone number, or any other personally identifiable information) to deliver advertisements for products and services that may be of interest to you.

In any case, we reserve the right to modify this Policies or the Terms of Use's terms at any time. Any modifications we make shall be subject to notice, which we may provide by posting the modified policy on the Sites.
