Our websites are intended for users who are located internationally.

This privacy policy is part of the Bhakti Community website terms and conditions which governs your use of this website in general.

Why We Collect Personal Information

We collect your personal information because it helps us deliver a superior level of user service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our content and focus on categories of greatest interest to you. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on the latest updates, announcements, and events that you might like to hear about.

What Information We Collect and How We May Use It

There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better products. For example, when you interact with Bhakti Community by phone, we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, etc. We may also collect information for market research purposes – such as your occupation and where you use your computer – to gain a better understanding of our users and thus provide more valuable service. We may collect information regarding user activities on our websites. This helps determine how to best provide useful information to users and to understand which parts of our websites, content, and Internet services are of most interest to them. We may use personal information to provide content that you have requested as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve Bhakti Community’s content. We may collect personal information about users of our websites through activities such as financial transactions and completion of forms on our websites. Such information is available to us when users register or subscribe to accounts or features on our websites, make online transactions, complete surveys, comment on our blogs, opt-in to our email marketing list, submit a comment or question to us using a “contact us” form or similar feature, send us an e-mail, or in any other way submit personal information voluntarily to us through our websites.

If you post blog comments, use a bulletin board, chat room or other similar features on our website you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Bhakti Community is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

If you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, Bhakti Community may collect that information from your interaction and the information could then become publicly available.

When We Disclose Your Information

Bhakti Community takes your privacy very seriously. Bhakti Community does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers. Except as otherwise disclosed to you, we will not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to third parties without notifying you of our intent to share the personal information in advance and giving you an opportunity to prevent your personal information from being shared.

Within Bhakti Community, to help us provide superior service, your personal information may be shared with legal entities to safeguard it in accordance with Bhakti Community’s privacy policy. Bhakti Community will use your personal information to respond to your requests and to provide you with our content. We may also use your personal information to maintain our internal record keeping. We may match information collected from you through different means or at different times, including both personal information and website usage information, and use such information along with information obtained from other sources, including third parties.

How We Protect Your Personal Information Bhakti Community takes various precautions to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. The Bhakti Community websites use secure encryption, provided by a third party, on some web pages where credit card information is required.

Integrity of Your Personal Information

Bhakti Community has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used. Naturally, you always have the right to access and correct the personal information you have provided. And you can request a copy of your personal information, your product registration history, and your interactions with our sales and support agents by contacting us.

While Bhakti Community strives to protect the security and integrity of sensitive personal information provided through this website, due to the inherent nature of the internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee 100% that information during transmission through the internet or while stored in our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others. If you contact us by e-mail or a “contact us” form or similar feature on our website, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view
information you send by these methods in transit. Do not send sensitive information (such as payment card information, social security numbers, employer identification numbers, passwords, or pin numbers) to us via e-mail or via a “contact us” form or similar feature on our website. We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail. You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification.
