Last Updated: March 12, 2014

Ramanathan & Company, LLC, doing business as "Coacharya" (“Coacharya” or "us") realizes that privacy is an important issue for those visiting and using our Coacharya.com website (the “Site”), and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about how we collect, use and safeguard the information you may provide to us via the Site.  

This Privacy Policy is applicable to our registered users and casual visitors to the Site (sometimes collectively referred to herein as “Users”). 

ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to the terms of the Coacharya Terms of Use. This Privacy Policy applies only to information submitted and collected online through the Site, and does not apply to information that may be collected by Coacharya through any other website, including through any social media site, customer Fan Page or offline. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not provide us with any information and do not use the Site.  By using the Site and voluntarily providing your personally identifiable information to us, you consent to the collection and use of such personally identifiable information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy may be revised from time to time, and all such revisions shall be effective upon posting. Please revisit this page often to remain fully informed of our policies. 

WHAT INFORMATION DOES COACHARYA COLLECT FROM YOU?

 Via the Site, Coacharya may collect from you: (i) certain personally identifiable information, and (ii) technical and other information.

Personally Identifiable Information.  

Contacting Us  – The Site permits you to contact us via email.  Whenever you send an email or otherwise communicate with us via the Site, you may be providing us with your name, email address, company name, business type, product interest, any other required fields, and any information you choose to include in the text of your message.  For example, you may choose to provide your mailing address or other information necessary or helpful for us to address your query or other concern.

Technical and Other Information. Coacharya uses commonly used automated information-gathering tools.  While you are browsing the Site, we automatically log your IP address (a number assigned to your computer when you use the Internet), general data (including your domain name and the name of the web page from which you entered the Site) and your activity while using the Site.  Additionally, in order to personalize and enhance your experience on the Site, we may also collect information through “cookies.” Cookies are small strings of text that are sent by the Site to your browser and then stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive.  We use cookies to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the Site.  We also use cookies to gather broad demographic information and to help identify you (by certain personally identifiable information) in respect to visits to the Site so that we may improve your user experience, and to determine whether you visited the Site from a particular Internet link or advertisement. Coacharya may also use small bits of code called “one-pixel gifs,” “clear gifs,” or “web beacons” embedded in web pages to gather certain web site information.  

Information may also be collected passively in the form of logs files that record website activity, including how many "hits" a particular web page is getting (a.k.a. "click-through data"). For example, log file entries are generated every time a User visits a particular page or clicks an image on the Site. These entries enable Coacharya to track a particular User’s visits to a web page, assess overall Site activity, track interest in particular portions of the Site, troubleshoot technical concerns, and identify the type of browser you are using. We may also use the log file entries for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the Site. 

To the extent that the Site ever displays third party advertisements, such advertisements, may also contain cookies sent by Internet advertising companies or advertisers (known as “third party cookies”). Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but it is possible to change your browser setup so that it warns you each time a cookie is being sent, blocks third party cookies or blocks or rejects all cookies. However, rejecting cookies may prevent you from taking advantage of certain portions of the Site.  

To the extent the Site requires registration at any point in time to access certain features within the Site, we may collect additional information from you, including without limitation, your name, e-mail address, date of birth, contact information and other information.
