Like most website operators, Banu collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Banu's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Banu's visitors use its website. From time to time, Banu may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, for example, by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Banu also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses from users on its websites. Banu only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of our services.
Certain visitors to Banu's websites choose to interact with Banu in ways that require Banu to gather personally-identifying information. The amount of information and type of information that Banu gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account on our websites to provide a username and/or email address. Those who engage in transactions with Banu (such as by purchasing goods and services) are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Banu collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Banu. Banu does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Staff and systems at Banu may (a) call you on the telephone, (b) send SMS messages to you, (c) send email messages to you or (d) contact you in person. As an example, we may contact our customers about their orders. The Do Not Call Registry and other similar registries do not apply as you explicitly allow us to contact you by sharing contact details with us.
If you request us to add you to our newsletter lists, we may send you marketing information about new products and services, and changes to existing products and services from time to time. You will be provided a way to unsubscribe from such messages if you do not wish to receive them.
Banu may collect information about the behaviour of visitors to its
websites. For instance, Banu may monitor the most popular content on
banu.com, or train machine learning algorithms based on how
users interact with the website. Banu may display this information
publicly or provide it to others. However, Banu does not disclose
personally-identifying information except in the manner described
Banu discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (a) need to know that information in order to process it on Banu's behalf or to provide services available at Banu's websites, and (b) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Banu's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Banu will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Banu discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Banu believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Banu, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Banu website and have supplied your email address, Banu may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Banu and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs and social networking to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Banu takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Banu or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Banu goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any entity that acquires Banu may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Data gathered by us may be stored on internet accessible servers. We make reasonable efforts to secure such systems. We disclaim all liability for loss of any personal data gathered by us due to security breaches, or other events such as damage or corruption of computer storage. If any breach of data takes place, we will inform you soon after we learn of it.
