Dr. Ramesh Kumar Foundation

Dr. Ramesh Kumar Foundation (the “Foundation”, “we”, or “us”) knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared. We take your privacy seriously and want to outline the measures we take in safe guarding your personal information, the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information.

The Privacy Policy covers the Foundation’s treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that the Foundation gathers when you are accessing the Foundation’s Website and when you use Foundation Services.

Your Personal Information We Collect

The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our services, and to allow our users to set up a user profile and make purchases via the Website. In general, we use the personal information we collect from you to fulfill your order, send you an order confirmation, send you requested product or service information, respond to customer service requests, improve our Website and marketing efforts, display content based upon your interests and administer your account. When your register or log in, you supply your email address and a password. This allows us to provide you access to your account every time you visit the Website. Before completing your first purchase, we also ask you for your name, phone number, email address, billing and shipping addresses. This information, along with your credit card number, is necessary to fulfill your order. This information may be disclosed to specific members of our staff and to select third parties (such as our credit card processor and party or parties shipping products you have ordered) involved in the completion of your transaction and delivery of your order. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features, and you may not be able to complete a purchase through the Website. When you receive an e-mail from us, clicking on it or opening it shall constitute an affirmative opt-in to receive further emails from us. However, you can always opt-out for any reason as any time by following the instructions set forth below. We may use your email address to notify you about events, products or services offered by the Foundation or to inform you of your order placement, order status, and/or shipping information, donation or registration if you have opted-in. Emails are sent only to Foundation users who have chosen to receive them (opted-in) or who have made a purchase on the Website or otherwise as consistent with applicable law. At any time, you can notify us to opt-out from receiving these emails (see “Opt-Out” Section below). In addition, we may keep a record of your past donations, registrations, purchases, returns, and credits. We may also ask you for information regarding your personal preferences and demographics to help us better meet your needs and improve the overall experience on the Website. We may also display personal testimonials of satisfied donors, event participants or customers on our Website and/or our social media accounts in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us using the information below. Users of your Website are required to be at least 18 years old, and any user under 18 is not an authorized user. Additionally, if we learn that a user is under 13 years of age, we will promptly delete any Personal Information we have collected about that user.

Automatically Collected Information

Upon engaging the Website, the Foundation automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, the type of browser being used, cookie information, the page you requested, duration of activity on our site, and any donations you may make, events you may register for or items you may purchase. This information may be used to customize the content you see on our Website or to communicate with you. These statistics do not identify you personally, but provide us with information regarding the type of user who is accessing our Website and certain browsing activities of that user. We may make extensive use of this data at an aggregated level in order to understand how our Foundation Website is being used.

Cookies and Other Tracking

Technologies Like most other transactional websites, we use “cookies” to improve your shopping experience and to save you time. Cookies are little tags that are placed onto your computer. We assign a cookie to your computer when you first visit us in order to enable us to recognize you each time you return. Cookies allow us to customize our Website to your individual preferences in order to create a more personalized shopping experience. Please note that the cookies we use for our Website or email campaigns do not store personally identifiable information about your finances. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” directory. If you reject cookies, you may still use our Website, but your ability to use some areas of our Website, such as the shopping cart, will be limited. The use of tacking technologies by our service providers, technology partners, or other third-party assets (such as social media) on the Website is not covered by this Privacy Policy. These third parties may use cookies, clear gifs, images, and scripts to help them better manage their content on our Website. We do not have access to or control over these technologies. We do not tie the information gathered to our customers’ or users’ personally identifiable information.

Sharing of Personal Information

We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information only in instances as described in this Privacy Policy. We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you, such as providing evidence of donations, assisting with event registration, shipping your order, processing a payment, or offering customer service. Unless we tell you differently, the Foundation’s agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. We restrict access to your Personal Information to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. At all times, we take the utmost care to protect your Personal Information. The Foundation may be forced to disclose information in order to comply with a subpoena, court order, administrative, or governmental order, or any other requirement of law, or when the Foundation, in its sole discretion, deems it necessary in order to protect its rights or the rights of others, to prevent harm to persons or property, to fight fraud and credit risk, or to enforce or apply the Foundation’s Website Terms of Use. If the Foundation is involved in a merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information.

Secure Shopping for All Foundation Customers

The Foundation endeavors to protect user information to ensure that user information is kept private. You need to prevent unauthorized access to Personal Information by limiting access to your computer and browser and otherwise not leaving Personal Information unsecure or unattended. When the Foundation’s order form asks users to enter Personal Information such as a credit card number, that information is encrypted with industry-standard Secure Socket Layers (“SSL”) encryption to keep your online order safe and secure. The Foundation also maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can contact us at
