II. INFORMATION COLLECTED BY VIDUSHI
In order to access this Site, User must first complete the registration process. During the registration process, Vidushi collects personal information such as User’s name and email address. Once it is completed and submitted Users registration, User has opted in to receive email communication from Vidushi.
Vidushi also collects personal information when User chooses to use certain other features of the Website, such as making purchases or electing to receive text messages about upcoming boutiques, promotions or events. When User chooses to use these additional features, Vidushi requires User to provide additional personal information such as User’s phone number, billing and shipping addresses and credit card information, and Vidushi may request additional personal information such as User’s shopping preferences and demographics.
If User chooses to invite an individual to join Vidushihandicrafts.com, User will need to provide his/her name and email address. Vidushihandicrafts.com stores this information to confirm qualifying orders attributable to User’s account and to track the results of the invitation referrals.
A. Information that Users Provide to Vidushi
B. Information Collected Automatically
When Website collects usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website and to which pages within the Website), Vidushi only uses such data in aggregate form, in a manner that assures User’s anonymity. Vidushi may provide this aggregate usage information to our partners; our partners may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Website, so that our partners, too, can endeavour to provide User with an optimal online experience. For example, Vidushi may place a cookie on User device that records what products User has viewed on Website, and then provide that information, in non-personally-identifiable form, to a third party website, to allow such website to show User ads for similar products that are available from Vidushi or from third parties.
Vidushi may also deliver a file to User through the Website (known as a “web beacon”) from an advertising network Vidushi has contracted with. Web beacons allow advertising networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for Vidushi and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to users when User visit other websites. These beacons may, for example, log that User has viewed a certain product on the Website, and then show User an ad for similar products when User browse to another website. Because User’s web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if User had requested a web page from their site. Many ad networks participate in the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”), a cooperative of online marketing and analytics companies committed to building consumer awareness and establishing responsible business and data management practices and standards, and such NAI members may allow User to opt-out of cookies or beacons they deliver. Again, Vidushi does not control the policies of any third parties, including advertising networks.
C. E-mail and Other Communications
Vidushi may contact User, by email or other means. For example, Vidushi may send a User promotional offers on behalf of other businesses, or communicate with User about his/ her use of the Website. Also, Vidushi may receive a confirmation when User opens Vidushi’s email. If User do not want to receive email or other mail from Vidushi, User may indicate his/ her preference by either unsubscribing from the email or writing to info@Vidushihandicrafts.com.
III. SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Vidushi neither rent nor sell User’s Personal Information in personally identifiable form to anyone. Vidushi shares User’s Personal Information in personally identifiable form with third parties only as described below:
A. Affiliated Businesses and Third Party Websites Vidushi Does Not Control
In certain situations, businesses or third party websites with whom Vidushi is affiliated with may sell items or provide services to User through the Website (either alone or jointly with us). User can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and Vidushi will share User’s Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that Vidushi deem it related to such transaction or service. One such service may include the ability for User to automatically transmit information from User’s Vidushi account to an account on a third party website or service, such as Facebook. Vidushi have no control over the policies and practices of third party websites or businesses as to privacy or anything else, so if User choose to take part in any transaction or service relating to an affiliated website or business, please review all such business’s or websites’ policies.
Vidushi employs other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share User’s information with them to provide products or services to User.

C. User Profiles and Content
Certain user profile information, including without limitation a user’s username and the image content that such user has uploaded to the website may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Website or address User’s request for our services. Any content User uploads to User’s public user profile, along with any Personal Information or content that User voluntarily discloses online in a manner other users can view (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, etc.) becomes publicly available, and can be collected and used by others. User’s username may also be displayed to other users if and when User post comments or upload images through the Website and other users can contact User through such comments. If User sign into the Services through Facebook Connect, User list of “friends” from Facebook may be automatically imported to the Services, and such “friends,” if they are also registered users of the Services, may be able to access certain non-public information User has entered in User Services user profile. Again, Vidushi does not control the policies and practices of any other third party site or service.
D. Business Transfers
Vidushi may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information (which may include User’s Personal Information) is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Also, if Vidushi (or substantially all of our assets) are acquired, or if Vidushi goes out of business or enter bankruptcy, Personal Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
E. Protection of Vidushi and Others
Vidushi may release Personal Information when Vidushi believes in good faith that release is necessary to comply with laws; enforce or apply our conditions of use and/ or other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Vidushi, our employees, our users, or others. Vidushi may exchange information with other companies and organizations (including governmental authorities) for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
F. With User Consent
IV. SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
User’s account is protected by a password for User privacy and security. If User accesses his/ her account through Facebook Connect, User may have additional or different sign-on protections through Facebook. User needs to prevent unauthorized access to his/ her account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting User’s password (or other sign-on protections) appropriately and limiting access to User computer or device by signing off after User have finished accessing his/ her account.
Vidushi endeavours to protect the privacy of User account and other Personal Information Vidushi holds in its records, but Vidushi cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.

However, please keep in mind that Vidushi may need some information to allow User register with us or to take advantage of some or all of our features, and if User choose not to provide that information, User ability to use our Website and services may be limited.
