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.in/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Who we share your data with

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.

Where we send your data

It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating this website (Mobalian.in)

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Mobalian collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Mobalian’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mobalian’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Mobalian may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Mobalian also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Mobalian.in blogs/sites. Mobalian only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Mobalian’ websites choose to interact with Mobalian in ways that require Mobalian to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Mobalian gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Mobalian.in to provide an email address for subscribing to our news letters. Mobalian does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Mobalian may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Mobalian will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Mobalian discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Mobalian believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Mobalian, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Mobalian takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
