Namastream may collect personally identifiable information, such as your name. If you purchase Namastream’s products and services, we collect billing and credit card information. This information is used to complete the purchase transaction. We may gather additional personal or non-personal information in the future.

Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by Namastream. 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 Namastream website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Namastream’s public message boards (i.e., commenting on a blog post), this information may be collected and used by others.

Namastream encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from Namastream so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information.

If you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA), we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as controller of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

(b) Use of Cookies

Namastream may collect domain information and “cookies” (small files saved on your hard drive by your web browser) to analyze website performance, track user patterns, save information from your previous visits, provide targeted advertisements, and customize your experience. 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 Namastream pages, or register with a Namastream site, a cookie helps Namastream 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 Namastream page or site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Namastream features that you customized.

We will ask for your consent to allow us to use cookies. Namastream or its third-party vendors may collect non-personal information through the use of these technologies. Non-personal information might include the browser you use, the type of computer you use, and technical information about your means of connection to this website such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information. Namastream’s systems may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit and search terms you use on this website and about the links you may select from within this website to other areas of the Internet.

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. 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 Namastream services or websites you visit.
