Privacy Notice

GandhiServe knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting our web site, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

What Personal Information About Visitors Does GandhiServe Gather?
The information we learn from visitors helps us personalize and continually improve your visiting experience at our web site. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future visits for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web sites, we use "cookies", and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our web site. A number of institutions offer utilities designed to help you visit web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at our web site if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from us if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our visitor list to lists received from other organizations, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our visitors.
Information from Other Sources: For reasons such as improving personalization of our service (for example, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.

What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of our web sites coolest features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does GandhiServe Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our visitors is an important part of our activities, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share visitor information only as described below.
Agents: We employ other organizations and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from visitor lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing visitor service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Protection of GandhiServe and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of GandhiServe, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We reveal only the last four or five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

What Choices Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of some of our features.
You can add or update certain information. When you update information, we may keep a copy of the prior version for our records.

Children
GandhiServe does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use our web site only with involvement of a parent or guardian.

Conditions Of Use, Notices, and Revisions
If you choose to visit our web site, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Terms of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of Germany. If you have any concern about privacy on our web site, please send us a thorough description to mail@gandhimail.org, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly. This Notice and the Terms of Use will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Notice in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our web site frequently to see recent changes.

Informations You Give Us
You provide most such information when you search, buy, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with us. For example, you provide information when you search for a product, make an order or communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise, complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address and phone number, credit card information, people to whom purchases have been shipped, including address and phone number, e-mail addresses of other people and e-mails to us.

Automatic Information
Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, login, e-mail address, password, computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform, purchase history, the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our web site, including date and time, cookie number, products you viewed or searched for.
