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.
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 about our visitors is an important
part of our activities, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.

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
Protection of GandhiServe and Others: We release account and other
personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law;
protect the rights, property, or safety of GandhiServe, our users, or others.

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

which encrypts information you input.
