Information Collection and Use
|SHCIL is the sole owner of the information collected on online.stockholding.com. SHCIL collects information from our users at several different points and modes on our Web site.|
In order to use the post-login area of the Web site, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact the user about services on our site for which we feel he may have interest. Demographic information (such as income level / gender) is not collected at any stage.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the userís computer tied to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. No explicit cookies are used by us at any stage. No personally identifiable information is collected from your computer via cookies in any form.
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track userís movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We store information that we collect through log files, clear gifs to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their viewing preferences. Consequently, collected information is tied to the users personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve the content of the site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a userís visit to our Web site, and to direct pertinent marketing promotions to them. We do not share your profile with other third parties.
Communications from the Site
|Special Offers and Updates|
We send all new members a welcoming email with the PIN details. Registered members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and sometimes, website or service related notifications.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. However, these service related communications are not promotional in nature.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the users wishes. PIN Reposting, Password Reminders etc. all send automated emails to the email id provided by the users at the time of registration.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
No sharing of personalised information collected on the website is done with any third party for any purpose. Different departments of SHCIL, however, will have access to contact details (eg. email id, telephone numbers) which may be required by them to reach users for service related or marketing related needs.
|This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, SHCIL , 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.
When our registration form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as bank account number and/or password), that information is encrypted and is protected with encryption software using 128 bit SSL while the information travels from the users computer to our servers. While on a secure page, such as our registration form, login-page and post login area 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 users are in the non-SSL area. SHCIL uses High Grade Encryption( RC4 128 bits ) to ensure that your data is fully encrypted as it is transmitted to you. Encryption makes it very difficult for unauthorised people to view your information while travelling between computers and hence makes the page almost impossible to be read as it travels across the network to you. Validity of the server certificate can be ascertained by clicking the 'Verisign' logo that appears on the Login page.
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 usersí information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment. Sensiive information like passwords are stored in encrypted form.
If users have any questions about the security at our Web site, users can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
|Correcting/Updating Personal Information|
|If a userís personally identifiable information changes (such as phone or email address), these can be updated by users in the 'Profile' Section after logging-in successfully. Passwords too can be changed by users as and when required.|
