What type of information does Lokmat collect and how is it used?
Lokmat gathers only the customer information that we need to administer our business, provide superior service and communicate offers on merchandise and services that we believe will be of interest to you. There are two categories of information we may collect about you when you visit our site and/or register with Lokmat. The first type of information we collect about you is personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card numbers. This type of information may be provided as part of the registration process and allows us to process and fulfill your order, verify your new account, and conduct the billing process. It is not necessary to provide any personally identifiable information when you visit the Lokmat website without registering with Lokmat. The second category is non-personally identifiable information. Data, such as your IP address, browser type, domain name, and the specific Lokmat web pages through which you click, may be gathered in order to gain a better understanding of site development needs. This data may be collected automatically and utilized in the aggregate to help us look for trends so that we can improve our website and your www.lokmat.com experience. Lokmat does not direct any part of its website to children under the age of 13.
