Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy spells out how we may collect, use, and disclose your information. We are very careful with what we do with your information. This policy also describes the steps we take to keep your information secure, and explains your options regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information. Our policy may change at anytime.  

 

Age of User
We will not intentionally collect personal information from children under age 16. If you are under the age of 16, we ask that you do not submit any personal information to us, and ask a parent or guardian for help. Elsewhere on this site, you have represented and warranted that you are either using the site with parental supervision, or that you are at least 18 years of age.


What information do we collect?
We collect information from you when you register on the site, advertise on the site, enter a contest or sweepstakes, respond to a survey or communication such as e-mail, or participate in other site features.

When advertising or registering, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information or other information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously. If you have opted-in to receive our e-mail newsletter, we may send you periodic e-mails. 


How do we protect visitor information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted to be only accessed as stated above. 


Do we use "cookies"? 

Like many websites, we use "cookies" to enhance your experience and gather information about visitors and visits to our websites.  Cookies from our site are not spyware, cookies do not and cannot infiltrate your hard drive to gather confidential information. Cookies are simply small pieces of information that are stored as text files by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Web beacons help our site to deliver cookies and also tell us how many times a page on our site has been viewed.  We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Chrome or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services may not function properly. 


 Third party links
In an attempt to provide you with increased value, we may include third party links on our site. These linked sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work).  

 

 

Do we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?
We do not sell, rent, trade, license, or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information to outside parties, except to:

•    Service providers that function on our behalf, such as third parties that may help fulfill your requests. 

•    Financial services corporations such as credit card processors and issuers, in order to help you complete your advertising requests. When we do submit your credit card for authorization, however, we use state-of-the-art data encryption to protect your information.

•    Law enforcement officials conducting an investigation, issuing subpoenas or court orders.
We will also release information when it is necessary to protect our legal rights or to enforce our terms of use or other agreements. For example, it may be necessary to disclose information to reduce the risk of fraud on our site.

The term "outside parties" does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. In the event that Shakara News is acquired by another company, or dispose of some or all of its assets, or merge with another company, your personal information may be disclosed. However, that disclosure will still be subject to this privacy policy.

We welcome your questions, comments, and concerns about privacy. Please send us any and all feedback pertaining to privacy, or any other issue.
