Other Information:

Specific uses of personal information that vary from this Privacy Statement (if any) may be found throughout the site. To the extent that, during your submission of information on the site, you are notified of privacy practices that are different from those described in this Privacy Statement, those alternative disclosures will govern that submission.

There may be situations where AtithiAdvisor.com collects data through a survey or similar process when the page does not link to this Statement. In those cases, unless you are informed otherwise, you should assume that AtithiAdvisor.com treats all information from such pages as it treats its other valuable business records.

Of course, there are many other ways in which AtithiAdvisor.com could get information from or about you that are not described elsewhere in this Statement. For example, you might send email through a customer service email address, or AtithiAdvisor.com may get a complaint about you from a third party. AtithiAdvisor.com's practices with respect to such information are pretty much as you'd expect-AtithiAdvisor.com uses and discloses this information in a commercially reasonable business manner.

Contractors and Third Party Service Providers:

AtithiAdvisor.com uses contractors to help with its operations. Some or all of these contractors may access the databases of user information. Usually these contractors will enter into an agreement that places restrictive provisions on their use and disclosure of all information they obtain through the relationship.

AtithiAdvisor.com may also use third party service providers to help with certain aspects of its operations that may require disclosure of your personal information to them. For example, AtithiAdvisor.com may use a third party service provider to mail MS-Points redemption rewards, serve ads, or deliver some or all of the emails sent as part of the site's normal operation. Again, usually AtithiAdvisor.com will place extensive restrictions on the ability of these third parties to use and disclose your personal information except as necessary to perform the services they are asked to perform.

Security of Information:

We want you to feel confident about using our Services. We have certain administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect the personal information you provide to us. We are committed to protecting the information we collect.

Certain Device operating system versions permit you to opt out of certain types of information sharing, including to certain advertising networks. Please check your Device settings if you want to limit such tracking.

Security of Information

We have implemented appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect your information.

We only authorize specific employees to access personal information and they may do so only for permitted business functions.

We also employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorized access to your information. However, we cannot guarantee the security of information from unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, or other circumstances outside of our control.

AtithiAdvisor.com uses industry-standard methods of securing its databases of user information, such as, if and where appropriate, firewalls and limits on who can access user information databases. However, please keep in mind that there is no such thing as perfect security on the Internet.

Retention of the Information

We will retain copies of your information for as long as you maintain your account or as necessary in connection with the purposes set out in this Statement, unless applicable law requires a longer retention period. In addition, we may retain your information for the duration of any period necessary to establish, exercise or defend any legal rights. We will destroy or delete your data, using relevant methods, in the event the data retention period has lapsed, you no longer maintain your account or if the purpose of data collection has been achieved.

Limits on AtithiAdvisor.com' Abilities:

A site and service as complicated as AtithiAdvisor.com is never perfect, and thus AtithiAdvisor.com may inadvertently make uses or disclosures of your information in ways not contemplated by, or in direct contravention of, this Statement. For example, if the software has a temporary glitch, your personal information could be displayed on the site even though you've configured your preferences otherwise. AtithiAdvisor.com might also make ad hoc uses of your information in ways it can't contemplate here. AtithiAdvisor.com will do its best to work with you if these types of situations arise, but your sole remedy in these cases is to have AtithiAdvisor.com try to rectify the problem as soon as it can.

In addition, although highly unlikely, it is possible for Internet transmissions containing your personal information to be intercepted by others. It is impossible for AtithiAdvisor.com to ensure the privacy and security of all transmissions made to and from the site while in transit.

Of course, AtithiAdvisor.com does not control the privacy practices of its advertisers and other third-party sites that it promotes or links to. If you click through a banner ad or link and submit your information to an advertiser, you will be subject to their privacy policies. Please make sure you understand these policies before submitting your information.
