This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for
www.harappa.com and associated sites. Briefly, we do not share any personal information
voluntarily or involuntarily disclosed by visitors of this site with
anyone for any reason. If you feel that this Website is not abiding by its posted privacy
policy, you should first contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information Collection and Use
Harappa is the sole owner of the information collected on this
site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in
ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Harappa
collects information from our users when they order goods, sign-up for our monthly newsletter, or choose to disclose their email address on the survey form or when they send us email.
We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user
must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and
financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This
information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders.
If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used
to get in touch with the user.
Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and other sites on the Internet.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's
movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and
advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can
identify any individual person.
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card
processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies
do not to the best of our knowledge retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information
for any secondary purposes.
We might partner with another party in the future to provide specific
services. When the user signs up for these services, we will not share
names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third
party to provide these services without informing the user. We do not currently have any such partners with whom we share
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we at
Harappa are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other
sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and
to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects
personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies
solely to information collected by this Web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact
information such as name and email address. This information is fully
sold to anyone for any purpose.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys
or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely
voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose
this information. Information requested may include contact information
(such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such
as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the
winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes
of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users information.
When users submit sensitive information via the website, your
information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive
information such as credit card number,
that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption
software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our
order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape
Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to
un-locked, or open, when you are just surfing.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we
also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.
All of our users information, not just the sensitive information
mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need
the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing
clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to
personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are
kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can
send an email to email@example.com.
We also send the users who have signed up site
announcement updates through a monthly newsletter. Members are able to
un-subscribe from the newsletter.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter may also opt-out of
receiving these communications by sending us an email us at
