We may use this information in our marketing and advertising both on and off the System. You can change the settings to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies from a website you visit. If you decline cookies your service with the System may be slower and not optimal. We use 4 types of cookies at Valisha Technologies Pvt Ltd: (1) Strictly Necessary, (2) Performance, (3) Functionality & Profile and (4) Advertising.
• Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around our websites and use their features, particularly in connection with information searches and order placement. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet. An example of a strictly necessary cookie that some of our websites use includes so-called a “shopping basket cookie”, which is used to remember the products that you wish to purchase when you add products to your shopping basket or proceed to checkout.
• Performance Cookies: These cookies collect information about how you use our websites, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get any error messages from certain pages. These cookies do not gather information that identifies you. These cookies collect only anonymous information and such information is only used to improve how our websites work. These cookies are not used to target you with online advertising. Without these cookies we cannot learn how our websites are performing and make relevant improvements that could better your browsing experience. Examples of performance cookies that our website uses include Google and Adobe Analytics (see further below).
• Functionality & Profile Cookies: These cookies allow our websites to store information that you provide such as your site language preferences, and to store technical information useful for your interactions with our websites. For instance, they remember your user ID and elements of your user profile. They also ensure that the onsite marketing and experience is relevant to you. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you have previously made or personalise your browsing experience.
• Advertising Cookies: These cookies may be used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They may also be used to limit the times you see an advertisement as well as help to measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. Although these cookies may track your visits to other websites, they do not usually know who you are. Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.
• We also use third parties to help with certain aspects of our operations, which may require disclosure of your Consumer Information to them. For example, we may use a third party to communicate with you (via telephone, email, or letter) about your account or upcoming features or services, to process and collect payment for your Services via your credit card, to generate demographic profiles based on Consumer Information of our customers, and to perform other work as part of or in relation to the System that we may need to outsource. By agreeing to these terms and conditions you consent for the same. We require these contractors and third parties to agree to protect the confidentiality of your Consumer Information and to use it only as necessary to perform the services they are asked to perform.
• We reserve the right to transfer Consumer Information in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.
• We may disclose Consumer Information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal requirements or with legal process served on us, to protect and defend our rights or property, or in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of any individual. We may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. These websites may have their own privacy policies, which we suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. To the extent such websites are not owned or controlled by Valisha Technologies Pvt Ltd, we are not responsible for the websites’ content, any use of the websites, or the privacy practices of the websites.
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals. Valisha Technologies Pvt Ltd currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, Valisha Technologies Pvt Ltd will reassess how to respond to these signals.
If the System is distributed by a dealer, contractor, utility company, retailer, or other third party and you share your Consumer Information with such party, we cannot control the collection, storage, and use of such information by such party. If the System is provided through your utility provider or third party System provider, we may share Consumer Information with your utility provider or third party System provider in accordance with your agreement with such utility provider or third party System provider. Their obligations with respect to such Consumer Information are governed by their agreement with you.
Valisha Technologies Pvt Ltd does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone younger than 18. If Valisha Technologies Pvt Ltd is made aware that it has received personally identifiable information from someone younger than 18, it will use reasonable efforts to remove that information from its records.
Valisha Technologies Pvt Ltd is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in facilities to which access is limited. For sites to which you login, it is your responsibility to ensure the security of your password and not to reveal this information to others. When you move around a site to which you have logged in, or from one site to another that uses the same login mechanism, we verify your identity by means of an encrypted cookie placed on your machine.

Any action against any party to this Privacy Statement will be commenced only in the Courts of Pune which courts will have exclusive jurisdiction over such actions and proceedings and the parties hereby irrevocably consent to jurisdiction over them by such courts.
