Privacy Policy

The Hamandista Academy provides free literary essays and on-demand consultancy services for the worldwide population who are specifically interested in teaching, learning, and/or sharing their knowledge and experience, ideas and thoughts about literature.

By accessing and using hamandista.com, you grant your consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of information as described below. Note that our Privacy Policy may change in the future. Access and use of the Site in the future also constitutes consent to collect, use, and disclose information as described below or based on any additional or other terms added or substituted in the future. We encourage you to check back periodically to review the current Privacy Policy.

Who gets the information collected?

The Hamandista Academy respects the privacy of Site users, and does not sell, rent, or otherwise provide personal information to third parties. Unless specifically stated otherwise, any information provided by you or otherwise collected is used only by hamandista.com as described below. However, there may be links on the Site that go to websites owned and/or operated by third parties who may have different privacy policies. You, and not The Hamandista Academy, are responsible for knowing and understanding the privacy policies of third party websites before providing them with personal information.

Be aware that any personal information you might disclose, including performance records of Learners or Students, in the process of using the courses, lessons, and activities provided on the Site should be considered public information even though some of this information is accessible only with proper sign-in identification. The Hamandista Academy encourages you to be cautious about incorporating personal information in lessons and activities available on the Site.

What kind of information is collected?

The Hamandista Academy collects two kinds of information from Site users: individual information and aggregated information.

Individual information includes personal information such as your name, sign-in name and email address. We use this information to establish an individual account. This information also allows us to contact you to alert you to Site features and services or to respond to your inquiries.

Aggregated information includes any information that cannot be related to an individual. In order to better understand the needs and preferences of Site visitors and evaluate the usefulness and popularity of Site features and services, we may from time to time collect information such as the number of times certain pages or features are accessed, the type of browsers used to access the Site, or the website users visited previously or visited next.

How is the information collected?

Information is gathered in several ways. Before users open an account, they must complete a registration form. This form requires a sign-in name, password, first and last name, and email information. This information makes it possible for us to respond to inquiries or announce new Site tools or features.

Whenever you access the Web on the Internet, an IP address is automatically assigned to your computer. This address allows Web servers to identify your computer. The IP address does not provide any personal information about the computer user. The IP address is used for system administration, to gather aggregated information on the Site use, and to help you and your Records remain properly connected during and between visits.

While you are visiting the Site, cookies may be sent from the Site’s server to your computer. Cookies are small files used to help maintain continuity during and between visits and help keep track of your activities, lessons, classes, and records on the Site. Cookies can also help determine the most popular pages and features of the Site. Like an IP address, a cookie identifies a computer, not you or any personal information. You may be able to configure your Internet browser to refuse cookies or to ask you whether to allow cookies. If you have cookies disabled, refuse, or do not allow cookies to be used during a visit to the Site, you may not be able to use many of the tools and features of the Site.

If you contact the Site through its help or support feature, we may keep that correspondence on file so that we can better respond to comments, questions, or concerns. In order to respond to you directly, an email address or other contact information is needed.

Are there any circumstances in which The Hamandista Academy would disclose information to third parties?

Under normal circumstances, the Hamandista Academy does not disclose information to third parties. Exceptional circumstances could include:

  1. Protecting the integrity and security of Hamandista Academy site,
  2. Precautions against liability,
  3. Protection of the safety, rights, or property of users or others,
  4. Response to requirements of the judicial process or, to the extent permitted by law, requests of law enforcement or public safety agencies.

Even in these circumstances, account information is only released if Hamandista Academy believes it to be reasonably necessary.

What security measures are used to protect my personal information?

Access to Site content and personal information is protected by firewalls, sign-in names, and passwords. However, because the Site does not employ the security measures such as Secure Socket Layers and encryption needed for financial or confidential transactions, we strongly recommend that users not send, copy, or link to the Site any confidential personal or financial information such as bank account, credit card, or social security numbers. While we exercise reasonable care to preserve your privacy and the security of your personal information, no transmission of information over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.

Therefore, we cannot warrant the security of any information transmitted to the Site. Any and all information that is transmitted to Hamandista Academy through the Internet will be at your (the user’s) own risk. We encourage you to exercise discretion in deciding what type of information you include in Registration, Records, and all Writing or Typing Activities that you include on the Site.
