Purpose of this Page

This page informs our website visitors about how we collect, process and disclose their personal data, if they choose to use our service.

Any personal information we collect will not be used or shared with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

Controller

Arch India is the controller, and responsible for your personal data, collectively referred to as “we”,
“us” or “our” in this privacy policy.

How Data is Collected

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

We want to inform you that if you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

For a better experience while using our service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information, including but not limited to your name, email and postal address. Such information will be used to contact or identify you.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Links to Other Sites

Our content or services may contain links to other sites. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that site. These external sites are not operated by us. Therefore, we recommend you to visit the Privacy Policy of those sites separately. We neither have any control nor assume responsibility for the content, practices, services or privacy policies of any third-party sites.

Who we share your data with

We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:

  • To improve/facilitate our services
  • To provide services on our behalf
  • To perform certain services
  • To assist us in analysis and review

We would like to inform you that these third parties have access to your personal information, so that they perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. We strongly recommend you to review this page periodically for any changes. The changes are effective immediately after they are posted on this page.
