Banu privacy policy

Protecting your private information and making proper use of it is very important to us. We try not to collect personal information unless we need it, and we try to indicate how this information is used by us. Our privacy policy is shown below. It is based on the Automattic privacy policy, distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 license.

Banu Shop is an internet store run by Banu Systems Private Limited, a company registered in Chennai, India. When the words “Banu”, “Banu Shop”, “Banu Systems”, “we”, “us” or “our” are mentioned in the privacy policy, it means this company.

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, 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 below.

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.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer. The visitor's computer provides this string to the website each time the visitor returns. Banu uses cookies to help us identify visitors and track visitors, their usage of the Banu website, and their website access preferences. Banu visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should configure their browsers to refuse cookies before using Banu's websites, with the drawback that many features of Banu's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

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.

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Banu. It does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

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.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Banu may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Banu's sole discretion. Banu encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a Banu Shop account, you should also check your account and emails for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
