Our applications and rules on the collection and usage of information about the members
Collection of Information
When one of our members registers, we only ask for Username and E-mail address information. The password of the member is generated automatically by the system and sent to his/her e-mail address. The member, by entering the password sent to his/her e-mail in the Member Login box on the main page (and on certain other pages), enters the system. Once this information is entered, the process of “member registration” is completed.
The information that you give on your profile page is completely your responsibilty.
We do not have any partner organizations or partner web sites with which we share the information collected.
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. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
Like most web sites, we also keep the visitor record files. In these files, standard information such as the pages visited, date and time of the visit, size of the files, the type of internet browser used, the version of the operating system, the IP number, the reference web site are kept. In order to ensure the security of our information, we record the IP numbers along with the private information of persons.
Although we do not share the member information with any person or institution, we would like to state that if authorized courts demand this information, will submit the requested information to the court.
On our website, we have a link called ‘subscribe” In all the mechanisms included in our site, such as membership and e-mail lists, an option to “leave” is always included. When a visitor or a member informs us that he/she wishes to leave the e-mail list which he/she has subscribed, we carry out this demand without asking for a reason.
Our members are never supposed members of certain e-mail lists “automatically” or “by default”. Our forms and our methods rest on the basis that a member must be aware when subscribing to a list.
Our site includes a links section. Other than this, we publish links as recommendation. The links to outside of our site generally open in a new window.
At Saavan, we do not assert that the sites we give link to comply with the rules for keeping the visitor information confidential. The whole responsibility with this respect is on the web site concerned. We therefore recommend our visitors visiting these sites, not to give information without making sure that this information will be kept confidential.
How to Access and Control Your Information
You have certain choices available to you when it comes to your information. Below is a summary of those choices, how to exercise them and any limitations.
Access and update your information
We give you the ability to access and update certain information about you from within your profile. For example, you can access your profile information from your account and search for content containing information. You can update your profile information within your profile settings and modify content that contains information about you using the editing tools associated with that content.
Deactivate your account
If you no longer wish to use our Services, you or your administrator may be able to deactivate your Services account. If you want to deactivate your own account, that setting is available to you in your account settings. Otherwise, please contact your administrator.
Delete your information
We give you the ability to delete certain information. For example, you can remove content posted in the community, and you can remove certain profile information within your profile settings. Please note, however, that we may need to retain certain information for record-keeping purposes, to complete transactions or to comply with our legal obligations.
Request that we stop using your information
In some cases, you may ask us to stop accessing, storing, using and otherwise processing your information where you believe we don’t have the appropriate rights to do so. Where you gave us consent to use your information for a limited purpose, you can contact us to withdraw that consent, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place at the time. You can also opt-out of our use of your information for marketing purposes by contacting us, as provided below. When you make such requests, we may need time to investigate and facilitate your request. If there is delay or dispute as to whether we have the right to continue using your information, we will restrict any further use of your information until the request is honored or the dispute is resolved, provided your administrator does not object (where applicable). If you object to information about you being shared with a third-party app, please disable the app or contact your administrator to do so.
