Cookies and Tracking
Like other websites, we use "cookies" to enable us to personalise your visits to this media network, simplify the signing-in procedure, keep track of your preferences and to track the usage of the network. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in the hard drive of your computer by your browser. Your browser will have the option to prevent websites using cookies (your browser's help screen or manual will tell you how to do this), but please note that this may reduce the functionality of this network and other websites.
Like other websites, our servers automatically record 'log files' containing information about the volume and characteristics of our website traffic e.g. IP address, numbers of pages viewed, length of time spent on site. We use log files to build pictures of how our site is used that help us to monitor and improve the service. We cannot identify you from your log files.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Your information will enable us to provide you with access to all parts of this Site and to supply the services and features that you have requested. We may aggregate the information to identify patterns which we can use in our marketing and to help us develop, present, support and improve our services and features.
In particular, we may use your information to contact you for your views on our services and to notify you occasionally about important changes or developments to this media network or our services. Furthermore, we might also use your information to email you with details about any other products or services which we offer which may be of interest to you.

Access to the Information
We retain access to all personal information that we have collected from you. When our service is available via the websites of our partners, those partners may have access to your information. Their use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policies. If our business enters into a joint venture with or is sold to or merged with another business entity, your information may be disclosed to our new business partners or owners.
We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of any other websites, even if you access them using links from this media network or if you can access this Site or use our services from them. We therefore recommend that you check the policy of each site that you visit and make sure that you are comfortable with the terms of such policies before providing any personal information.
When we offer or supply a service to you that is provided on our behalf by a third party we may have to pass your information to them in order to deliver the service. By using this media network you consent to us providing your information to the third parties licensed by us to provide such services. We may also use third parties to provide services on our behalf which may include processing (but not using themselves) your information e.g. to complete partial addresses or to augment the information we hold about you. In either case, we will not pass your data to anyone who is not also registered with the Data Protection Act or is not subject to these or similar provisions in our contract with them and we will not allow the third party to use your information commercially without your consent.
We will not otherwise disclose, sell or distribute your information to any third party without your permission unless we are required to do so by law.
Changing or Removing the Information we hold
Registered business users and bloggers in the Bakoos Media Network can update their information or ask for the deletion of their details by sending updated information or requests for deletion directly to in [at] bakoos.in.
We subscribe to the mail preference scheme which regulates unsolicited addressed mail. For more information about the scheme please visit the DMA site.
Security, Storage and Movement of Information
We follow strict security procedures to ensure that your personal information is not damaged, destroyed, or disclosed to a third party without your permission (unless they are providing services as outlined in the 'who has access to your information' section above) and to prevent unauthorised access to it.
The computers that store the information are kept in a secure facility with restricted physical access and we use secure firewalls and other measures to restrict electronic access. If we are working with third parties we will require them to have in place similar measures to protect your information.
All of the information we collect or record is restricted to our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. We will explicitly ask you when we need information to identify you.
We may require you to co-operate with our security checks before we disclose information to you. We will retain your information for a reasonable period or for as long as is required by law.
We may change this policy from time to time as we add new services or features or in response to changes in the law or essential commercial arrangements. Any changes to this policy will be posted on this media network.
