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

We do not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. However, you may be required to provide certain personal information to us when you elect to use certain personal information to us when you elect to use certain products or services available on the Site.

Use of your Personal Information

Buddha collects and uses your personal information to operate its website(s) and deliver the services you have requested.

Buddha may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Buddha and its affiliates.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

Buddha does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.

Buddha may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these service to Buddha, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Buddha may disclose your personal information, without notice, 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 Buddha or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Buddha; and/or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Buddha, or the public.

Tracking User Behavior

Buddha may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within Buddha, in order to determine what Buddha services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Buddha to customers whose behavior indicated they are interested in a particular subject area.

Automatically Collected Information

Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by Buddha. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Buddha website.

Use of Cookies

The Buddha website may 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 you 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 Buddha pages, or register with Buddha site or services, a cookie helps Buddha 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 Buddha website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Buddha 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 Buddha services or websites you visit.

Links

This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or 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 any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

Security of your Personal Information

Buddha secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Buddha uses the following methods for this purpose:

  • SSL Protocol

When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed.
