Collection of your Personal Information
 
Thirumanam.LK explicitly asks when it needs information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information") pertinent to the specific product or service you are choosing to use or subscribe to on the Thirumanam.LK websites. This information can include your e-mail address, name, gender, address, and telephone number, as applicable. Thirumanam.LK also may ask for non-personal information or demographic information. None of the information we gather can be used by the public (visitors, other members, and anyone not employed by Thirumanam Matrimonial Services, its corporate affiliates, or the financial institutions we use to process membership charges) to identify a specific individual. Members choose when to disclose their personal information at their own risk such as when contacting others through the contact system, listing any personal contact information on their profile, participating in the online chat rooms or the instant messenger service.
 
We are a membership-based service. We collect the name, country, gender and email address of standard account members. For premium account members we collect credit card, address, or bank information only from those who choose to pay for a premium account. No credit card information is stored on our servers. Anyone on the Internet can search our profiles or sign up for a standard free account and use all standard member features at no charge. Anyone is also welcome to create an online profile free of charge. For maximum exposure, member profiles are viewable on any of the Thirumanam.LK web sites, including any of our "co-branded" partner sites. All sites of Thirumanam.LK are owned and operated by Thirumanam Matrimonial Services and none of the information is shared with any third party unless you join on our partner "co-brand" sites in which you will be notified up-front that your Thirumanam.LK information will be shared with the Thirumanam.LK co-brand partner. All Thirumanam.LK web sites and profiles reside on our central database and on no third party systems.
 
Thirumanam.LK gathers two types of information: information that users submit to us and information not directly submitted by users.
 
Information submitted to Thirumanam.LK
 
There are two types of information we collect that users submit: public and private. We define private information to be any information that allows others to contact a user other than through Thirumanam.LK or allows the collection of information about the user other than what is displayed on the site. Public information is personal information that may be displayed on the site, such as gender, age and height, but cannot be linked to a particular user. (Except in the case of a Paid member who chooses to list their contact information in their profile which is viewable to all.)
 
Private Information:
 
The information gathered from standard free account members includes, email address, IP address, first and last name.
 
The information gathered from Paid members includes all of the above in addition to credit card info, address and other billing information. Credit card numbers are never committed to rest on our servers (stored on our servers). Credit card numbers are only used during real time authorization/billing and all transmissions over the Internet are Encrypted via industry standard SSL on the Payment Gateway Servers Only.
 
Public Information:
 
To accomplish the goal of bringing compatible individuals together, we must gather personal information such as gender, age, appearance, caste, religion and more for the online profiles. This information is meant to be seen by members and visitors to the site but cannot be used to identify a specific member by name, address, etc. Thirumanam.LK does not require individuals to include contact information in their profile Descriptions however Paid Member account holders can do so if they want to choose it. Members are also free to disclose anything they wish in our online chat rooms or instant messenger service should they choose to do so. Any contact/personal information that is disclosed in those areas is done so at the members own risk.
 
Information that users do not submit to us is aggregate information: This is information we collect that is not personally identifiable, such as what kind of browser you are using, IP address and occasionally trace route to your computer. This information is gathered for all visitors to the site.

There they can choose to be removed from our list. The non-personal information is used to compile general demographic statistics which is shared in the aggregate with Thirumanam.LK advertisers. We also use your e-mail address to respond to incoming service and support requests from you, to collect customer feedback, customer satisfaction surveys, and other service informational mailings. Should the situation arise, Thirumanam.LK may have to share some or all of the personal information collected when required to do so by law, judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants/orders or in the good faith belief that such action is required to: (1) conform to mandates of the law or comply with legal process served on Thirumanam.LK; (2) protect and defend Thirumanam.LK's rights or property; or (3) act under critically urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our members or the public.

If a member has a profile on the site and another member contacts them, an email is sent to the contacted member with their message and the contacter's reply-to email address. What the contacter discloses in this email is up to them and is done at their own risk. If the contacted member wishes to respond it is up to them how to do it and what they want to disclose. They can retrieve the contacter's reply-to email address via their contact manager or in the initial message itself. When a member contacts another member on the site via our contact system they are disclosing their email address on file to the contacted at their own risk. This is done so the contacted can get back in touch with them.
 
Paid Members can also choose to display their contact information in their profile and do so at their own risk since the information is publicly viewable to all visitors of Thirumanam.LK
