    Children

    Mavenz does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from anyone under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law. Any person who provides Personal Information through the Site represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If Mavenz learns that Personal Information has been collected from a user under 13 years of age on or through the Site, then Mavenz will take the appropriate steps to cause this information to be deleted.

    If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has shared his/her information on the Site, please contact Mavenz at privacy@mavenz.com to have that child's information deleted.

    Cookies

    We use "cookies" (small files placed on your hard drive) on certain of our pages to help analyze our web page flow; customize our services, content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.
    A few important things you should know about cookies are that:

    1. We offer certain features that are available only through the use of cookies.
    2. We use cookies to help identify you and maintain your signed-in status.
    3. Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session.
    4. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of some of our sites or services.
    5. You may encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of the sites that we do not control.

    Spam, Spyware or Spoofing

    We do not send emails that are not relevant to you. To report Mavenz-related spam or spoof emails to Mavenz, please forward the email to mailscam@mavenz.com. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our Terms of Use. We automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content.

    Change of Ownership

    In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your Personal Information, including email addresses, to that entity. Mavenz will use reasonable efforts to notify registered users of such a transfer (by a posting on the home page, or by email to the email address that was provided to us, as chosen by us at our discretion).

    Security

    The security of your personal information is important to us. Your information is stored on our servers located in India. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services.

    We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

    Marketing

    We don't sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. We may combine your information with information we collect from other companies and use it to improve and personalize our services, content and advertising.

    Third Parties

    Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are any other users on our sites or other sites throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Mavenz does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

    International Users

    Mavenz is hosted in India. If you use Mavenz from any region with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from laws of India, please note that you are transferring your personal data to India. By providing Personal Information under this Privacy Policy, you consent to the use of Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the transfer of your Personal Information to India.

    Changes and Updates to This Privacy Policy

    We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time, with or without prior notice. If we do change or update, we will update the "effective date" at the top of the Privacy Policy page. If we make changes to this policy that significantly alter the way we treat your personally identifiable information, we will notify you here, by email, or through notice on our home page. We encourage you periodically refer to this policy so that you understand and are abreast of the current privacy policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current privacy policy is applicable to all information that we have about you, your account and your use of the Site.

    If you use the Site after notice of changes have been published on our site, you hereby provide your consent to the changed practices. Regardless of your usage, all changes automatically take effect 30 days after they are initially posted on the site, and you hereby provide your consent to the changed practices.
