Privacy Policy
Information Collection and Use

Sharda Global is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Sharda Global collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Registration

In order to use portions of the website, a user must first complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and e-mail address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level or gender), and unique identifiers (such as tax identification number), but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site.

Cookie

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates, although some persistent cookies may remain if the user chooses options such as auto-login or remember me. This information is not used for any other purpose. By setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user may be limited in some areas of our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Links

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Sharda Global is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Newsletter

Subscription to the E-mail Newsletter is by invitation only. If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and e-mail address. Any user wishing to unsubscribe from our newsletter may do so by sending an e-mail to: support@sharda-global.com.

Tell-A-Friend

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and e-mail address. Sharda Global will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail inviting them to visit the site. Sharda Global does not store this information at any point information gathered is for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail.

Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. All of our users' information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

Choice/Opt-in

Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-in' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our home page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
