Privacy policy

Your privacy is important to us.

It is Pragati’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. We have developed this privacy policy for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose and otherwise make use of personal information.

Information we collect

You don’t need to reveal any personal information to view the content of this site.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we collect your email address to send it to you.

Like any major site, our server logs information such as IP address, browser version, operating system, and other such information for every page viewed on our site. None of this is linked to your personal information such as name and email address. All these logs are used for statistical analysis.

We also use third-party analysis tools such as Google Analytics to give us a better understanding of user traffic. You can opt-out of Google Analytics Demographic and Interest Reporting using ad settings

Some of our pages may include “cookies”. If this term is new to you, you can read all about cookies here. Essentially, we use it to maintain the logged-in status for registered users. At this time, we don’t allow regular users to register on the site, so that’s moot. However, third-party statistical tools may use cookies to analyse traffic to the site. If you’re still freaked out by cookies, all major web browsers allow you to turn them off. Doing so won’t affect your ability to view our site one bit.

If you use our contact form to get in touch, we collect your name and email address.

Why we collect it

We use your email address to send out our newsletters. All newsletters have links to unsubscribe at the bottom. Clicking that will get your off our email list immediately.

Information about web traffic is used to analyse content popularity and site experience. This helps us write better articles and make the site easier and more engaging to use.

If you use our contact form, we will use that information to respond to you.

On rare occasions, we may send a survey or poll about our site to our mailing list subscribers. You are not obligated to respond in any way. We promise not to abuse this privilege.

Principles

We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means with your knowledge or consent.

Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify why we are collecting it.

We will collect and use personal information solely for fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other ancillary purposes, unless we obtain your consent or as the law requires of us.

We will protect personal information by using reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

We will not share your personal information with any third parties without your consent.

Pragati may change this privacy policy from time to time at our sole discretion. Notifications of changes will always be posted at the top of this page.
