Privacy

 

This Privacy Policy relates solely to the information collection and use practices of our web site located at http://www.connect2deal (this "Website"), .com and any individual websites or merchant-specific, city-specific, or state-specific websites now or hereinafter contained within or otherwise available through external hyperlinks with our Website (the "Minisites").We ("Om Shakti Solution" or "OSS") recognize that many visitors and user of this Website and or the Minisites are concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This Privacy Policy, which may be updated from time to time, has been developed to address those concerns. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy, and become familiar with it.

 

Your use of this Website indicates to us that you have read and accept our privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Policy.

 

What type of information is collected by us?

 

We collect two types of information about our Website Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

 

Personally Identifiable Information.

 

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is information that identifies a specific end user. When you engage in certain activities on the Website, such as creating an account, ordering a product or service from the Institutions (as defined in Terms of Use), submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums, posting ads, entering a promotion sponsored by the Institution, filling out a survey, posting a review, sending feedback to us or the Institutions, requesting information about our services, applying for a job or posting a video (collectively, "Identification Activities"), we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. If you elect to engage in an Identification Activity, however, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, mailing address, email address, cell number, telephone number and date of birth. When you order products or services, we may also ask you to provide us with financial information, including but not limited to, your credit card or debit card number, expiration date and authentication codes or related information. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity. We use Personally Identifiable Information to provide products and services to you, administer promotions, enhance the operation of the Website, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, analyze Website use, improve our product and service offerings, and to tailor your experience with the Institutions. For instance, if you send our customer service an email we may use your comments and feedback to tell others about our services, and may post your comment in our marketing materials or on our Website. In addition, if you use our Website to send information or a product to another person, we may store your personal information, and the personal information of any recipient. We may use that other person's contact information to allow him or her to view and accept your gift or to allow the recipient to access the information you requested we send. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, resolve disputes, accomplish administrative tasks, contact you, enforce our agreements with you, including our Website Terms of Use, and this Privacy Policy, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities.

 

In the event there is any change in your Personally Identifiable Information like your address, phone number or email ID, you may send us intimation about the changes and we will make the necessary amendment in our records.

 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information ("NPII") is information that does not identify a specific end user. This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the website you visited before coming to our Website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving our Website, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. We, and/or our authorized third party service providers that perform function on our behalf like sending out and distributing our administrative and promotional emails ("Third Party Service Providers") and authorized third party advertisers that provide advertising services to OSS ("Third Party Advertisers"), may automatically collect this information when you visit our Website through the use of electronic tools like Cookies and Web beacons or Pixel tags, as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.

 

We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the Website, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with Third Party Service Providers and Third Party Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.

 

When and how do we collect the information?

 

We collect information from you for various purposes including but not limited to the following:

 

USER Registration

 

If you choose to become a registered user of this Website, you must provide your name, address, telephone or cell phone number, e-mail address, a unique login name, registration coupon number (if any), password, and password validation, and a password hint to help you remember your password. This information is collected on the registration form for several reasons including but not limited to the following:

 

    Personal identification purposes

 

    Completing purchases

 

    Enjoying other facilities of the site

 

    Allowing us to contact you for customer service purposes

 

    If necessary, customizing the content of this Website to strive to meet your specific needs

 

    For making product or other improvements to our site

 

In addition, we need your e-mail address to confirm your new user registration and each transaction or facility you conduct on our site. As a registered user of this Website, you will be entitled to savings and benefits on deals including, but not limited to restaurants, hotels, holiday packages, etc. You could, in addition, look forward to receiving by e-mail monthly newsletters, daily promotions offering special deals, updates for new services, and other noteworthy items. However, you may choose at any time to no longer receive these types of e-mail messages.

 

USER Profile

 

As a registered user/associate of this Website, you may choose to complete your online profile by providing us with personal preferences, credit card billing information, and other personal information. This information is primarily used to assist you in making reservations quickly without having to type in the same information repeatedly. For example, you can store your credit card billing information so that when you make a transaction, we may automatically pre-fill the credit card billing information for you.

 

Online Surveys

 

We value opinions, reviews and comments from user, so we frequently conduct online surveys. Participation in these surveys is entirely optional. Typically, the information is aggregated, and used to make improvements to our Website and its services and to develop appealing content, features and promotions for our Website members. Survey participants are anonymous unless otherwise stated in the survey.

 

Promotions

 

We may sponsor promotions to give our Website members the opportunity to win prizes. Information collected by us for such activities may include contact information and survey questions. We use contact information to notify the winners and survey information to develop promotions and product improvements to our Website.

 

Automatic Logging of Session Data

 

We automatically log generic information about your computer's connection to the Internet, which we call "session data", that is anonymous and not linked to any personal information. Session data consists of things such as IP address, operating system and type of browser software being used and the activities conducted by the user/associate while on our Website. An IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the internet, such as our web servers, know where to send data back to the user/associate, such as the pages of the site the user/associate wishes to view. We collect session data because it helps us analyze such things as what items visitors are likely to click on most, the way visitors are clicking through the site, how many visitors are surfing to various pages on the site, how long visitors to the site are staying and how often they are visiting. It also helps us diagnose problems with our servers and lets us better administer our systems. Although such information does not identify any visitor personally, it is possible to determine from an IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider (ISP), and the approximate geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.

In addition, if OSS or substantially all of its assets are acquired, our customer information will most likely also be transferred in connection with such acquisition.

 

Apart from the above, we may collect information from you for providing our complete range of services like issuing vouchers for products and/or services, maintaining discussion forums, interacting with Website Users/associates for customer feedback and resolving customer queries and issues, processing requests for signing up for special offers and maintenance of Website.

We may also collect personal information from individuals and entities with whom we have business relationships ("Business Associates?) and may have to also share their information with Third Party Service Providers to accomplish our administrative tasks. For example, when you order a service, we release your financial (credit card, debit card, net banking, mobile payment, etc) information to the card-issuing bank/provider to confirm payment for the service and, if applicable, release your address to the delivery service to deliver the service. We encourage Institutions and Third Party Service Providers to adopt and post privacy policies.
