Association of Registered Investment Advisers (“ARIA”) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the ARIA Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the ARIA website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information : ARIA collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. ARIA also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by ARIA. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by ARIA for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the ARIA Web site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through ARIA public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.

ARIA encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from ARIA so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. ARIA is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the ARIA.

Use of your Personal Information : ARIA collects and uses your personal information to operate the ARIA Web site and deliver the services you have requested. ARIA also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from ARIA and its affiliates. ARIA may also contact you for your opinion on various subjects or of potential new services that may be offered by ARIA.

ARIA does not sell, rent or lease its visitors or members’ lists to third parties. ARIA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, ARIA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide visitors or members’ support, or arrange for deliveries, if any. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to ARIA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

ARIA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

ARIA keeps track of the Web sites and pages our visitors or members visit within ARIA, in order to determine what ARIA services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within ARIA to visitors or members whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

ARIA Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ARIA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ARIA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ARIA, or the public.

Use of Cookies : The ARIA Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save your time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ARIA pages, or register with ARIA site or services, a cookie helps ARIA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same ARIA Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the ARIA features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ARIA services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information : ARIA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. ARIA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement : ARIA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. ARIA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how ARIA is protecting your information.

Contact Information : ARIA welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that ARIA has not adhered to this Statement, please contact ARIA at +91 98192 26808. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
