Online Privacy Policy

All “personal information” (“personal information” is defined as any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact or locate the person to whom such information pertains) that we collect and maintain will be subject to the version of the Privacy Policy in effect at the time of such collection. KCPL reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion, and will provide notice of material changes on the homepages of the Sites. II. ENTITIES COLLECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal information on these Sites is collected by KCPL. KCPL’s address is 176-A/7, Trivandrum Road, Palayamkottai, Tirunelveli 627002, Tamil Nadu, India. These Sites contain links to other sites at which personal information is collected. In such instances, unless expressly provided to the contrary, the collection and use of your personal information will be governed by the privacy policy applicable to that site. That privacy policy should identify the entity that is collecting your personal information.
As a visitor to these Sites, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as utilizing online software applications, KCPL may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, KCPL may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including pin code), e-mail address, organization or employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. When you use these Sites, KCPL or third parties authorized by KCPL may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of these Sites and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your computer. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of these Sites and its services. KCPL also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on these Sites. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information. When you submit personal information to KCPL through these Sites, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which KCPL and its affiliates and subsidiaries maintain offices, including without limitation, India. You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transferring, storage and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted vendors of KCPL. Such vendors are bound by contract to not use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties. KCPL has established relationships with various service providers whose services are available to you from these Sites or from web sites that are linked to these Sites. Typically, these providers offer services that SMC customers might find useful, such as those that can be used in conjunction with KCPL services and products. In order to use those services, you may be required to provide personal information to the providers. Unless expressly provided to the contrary, personal information that you provide while you are visiting a provider’s web site will be subject to the privacy policy posted on such site and personal information that you provide while on these Sites in conjunction with a provider’s service will be subject to this Privacy Policy. You should be aware that our agreements with these service providers often provide that they will share with KCPL personal information collected from you. In such instances, SMC may use this information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy. In the situation where sites have an SMC “look and feel,” and you reasonably believe you are on anKCPL site, the site is collecting information in a solely intermediary capacity and does not use personal information for secondary purposes. In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users and prevent abuse of our system we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third party sources.
KCPL collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. Your personal information is also used to keep you informed about product upgrades, special offers, and other products and services of KCPL and selected third parties if you have so opted to receive such communications. KCPL may collect information about the use of these Sites; such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. KCPL may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing or similar promotional purposes.
KCPL recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of information collected on these Sites. Without your consent, KCPL will not communicate any information to you regarding products, services and special offers available from KCPL although we may find it necessary to communicate with you regarding your use of the services on these Sites. Except in the particular circumstances described in this Privacy Policy, SMC will also not provide your name to other companies or organizations without your consent. There are other instances in which KCPL may divulge your personal information. KCPL may provide your personal information if necessary, in KCPL’s good faith judgment, to comply with laws or regulations of a governmental or regulatory body or in response to a valid subpoena, warrant or order or to protect the rights of KCPL or others.
The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of KCPL products or services or registering a KCPL product is classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Registration Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. In addition, your Registration Information resides on a secure server that only selected KCPL personnel and contractors have access to via password. KCPL encrypts your personal information and thereby strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to KCPL.
Personal information that you provide that does not constitute Registration Information also resides on a secure server and is only accessible to selected KCPL personnel and contractors via password. Since this information is not accessible by you, you will not be asked to select a password in order to view or modify such information. Please note that any information you post to a public bulletin board or chat room, such as the KCPL User to User Forums (the “Forums”), is available to all persons accessing that location. Your e-mail address will not automatically be posted on the Forums unless you modify the default setting to permit that. Your e-mail address would then be available to all persons accessing the Forums. In addition, you should be aware that the Forums offers a service in which subscribers are e-mailed a copy of all messages posted to the Forums on a particular topic. Consequently, if you post a message to the Forums your e-mail address will be sent to those subscribers that have indicated an interest in the topic of your message.
When you visit these Sites, you can browse these Sites and access important information without revealing your identity. In order to improve our Sites, we use “‘cookies” to track your visit. A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a Web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card, and enables KCPL to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some Web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.) While KCPL uses cookies to track your visit to KCPL, and our Web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, KCPL does not generally use this information to identify you personally. However, if you expressly provide consent for KCPL to “remember” the unique identifier that you select when you register for various activities on these Sites, that unique identifier will be stored on a cookie on your computer, linked to your registration information, and your navigation path around the Sites will be tracked. We associate this data to understand how our Sites and services are being used so we can understand our customers and offer appropriate products and services.
You have the right to access and correct your personal information and privacy preferences at any time. With respect to Registration Information, this may be accomplished by linking to your account at Edit Your Account where you can view and make changes to your personal information.
