What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Media Scan knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy very seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy. By visiting our website, you are accepting the practices set forth in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy covers Media Scan treatment of personal information that this website collects when you are on the Media Scan website and when you use Media Scan Services. This Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that Pravasi Samwad does not own or control, or to persons whom Media Scan does not employ or manage.

We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our website. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience. We do not process this information in a way that is incompatible with this purpose.
Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more beneficial for you to use our Services. Depending on the service you are using, you may at times be asked to provide your name, email address or information about what you like and don’t like. We request this information in order to provide you with our strongest value – a personalized online experience.

Information collected online is often defined as anonymous or personally identifiable:

Anonymous information: refers to information that cannot be linked to a specific individual. For example, we may know that ten thousand people visit this privacy policy today, but we don’t necessarily know their names, where they live or their dates of birth – they are anonymous to us, just like the bus service in your hometown knows how many people take a given route – but we don’t necessarily know who those people are. Many individuals accessing our Services do not use any of the personalization features available to them and are therefore anonymous to us.

Personally Identifiable Information: refers to information that gives us specific information about you such as your name, email address or postal address. With this information, Media Scan can provide a variety of personalized and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. Mail Email service that uses your name as part of a security mechanism to protect messages addressed to you from being read by others. We hope that, like many of our customers, you will find it beneficial to provide personally identifiable information about yourself because it will make our services more valuable to you.

Media Scan is very concerned about your privacy and we will never provide your email address to any third party without your explicit permission.
