Cox & Kings values the right to your privacy.
The idea of this policy is to educate you about what personal information is captured by us and where the same is used. It describes the principles and practices that apply to Personal Information (defined below) collected from users of our services (“you”) on our Site, in e-mail communications, surveys, sweepstakes or contests, and comments.
- We will not collect Personal Information without your knowledge and permission;
- We will take reasonable steps to protect the security of the Personal Information we collect from you.
All users who choose to register themselves on www.blog.coxandkings.com will be able to read and write blog posts, submit pictures and comments on the site.
If you register with us, we will collect personal information from you in addition to the non-personal information described above. That personal information may include your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, travel preferences, user name and password. The information we collect may vary, but we only collect the information that you manually enter into our forms. We may store all or some of that information in a cookie file on your hard drive, so that our system will recognize you each time you visit our site. To improve services and enhance personalization, we may periodically obtain information about you from other independent third-party sources and add it to your registration information. Additionally, authorized Cox & Kings personnel may update your registration information to accurately reflect any new information included in communications received from you.
How we use the personal information we collect
We use the personal information we collect to help both of us! As we mentioned above, registering with us allows you to personalize the site so that it is most useful to you. It also allows you to log into our site automatically each time you visit, rather than manually typing your user name and password every time. We may also use this information to periodically contact you with news or important information from Cox & Kings or to request your feedback on our site. In addition to these periodic updates, we may email you additional materials, but only if you specifically request them. These might include opt-in newsletters and other materials that you proactively request from Cox & Kings.
In addition to these communications, if you have provided an email address, we may use your personal information to send you notifications about special offers or to tell you about opportunities available from our partners. You may opt-out of any or all marketing communications from Cox & Kings in any commercial e-mail we send or at any time, as well as access and update your personal information, by visiting www.blog.coxandkings.com
Disclosure of your personal information
Cox & Kings does not sell or rent any personal information to any third party, other than our partners, as discussed in this policy. We may aggregate personal information from all of our users and provide that information in the aggregate to other parties, including advertisers, for marketing and promotional purposes. However, if we do so, that information will not be in a form that will allow any third party to identify you personally.
We may also use the information to provide to government agencies like RBI, Banks etc as per the laws of the country. As you might expect, Cox & Kings must cooperate with legal authorities, and may in some circumstances be required to disclose personally identifiable information in response to requests from law enforcement authorities, or in response to a subpoena or other legal process. We don’t expect this to happen, but if it does, we will provide only the information required. In other words, we will not simply turn over our database in response to a specific legal requirement. We also may share your information in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, and in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
Steps we take to protect your personal information.
Cox & Kings has implemented security procedures to help protect the personal information and blog posts written by you stored in our systems. For example, we limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information. We also employ processes (such as password hashing, login auditing, and idle session termination) to protect against unauthorized access to your personal information.
Minors (as defined under the laws of their jurisdiction or residence) are not eligible to register for, use, or Purchase the Products or Services available on our Site. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from any Minor, and will not use this information if we discover that it has been provided by a Minor.
Retention and storage
We will retain your Personal Information in our databases in accordance with our document management, retention and destruction policy and applicable laws. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with us, but it will be only as long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise later. We may also need the retain certain information to prevent fraudulent activity; to protect ourselves against liability, permit us to pursue available remedies or limit any damages that we may sustain; or if we believe in good faith that a law, regulation, rule or guideline requires it.
Your Personal Information will be stored in secured locations, and on servers controlled by Cox & Kings, located either at our offices, or at the offices of our service providers.
