Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

Bengalstudents.com, (“BS”) is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We will use our best efforts to ensure that the information you submit to us remains private. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.

 

Information Collection and Use

Registration – A user must register in order to utilize the study material, question paper, and candidate matching service. During registration, a user is required to provide certain categories of information, such as name, address, college information, e-mail address and password. In addition, a user may choose to provide other categories of information, such as career objectives, prior work history, job related skills and other job search related information. BS encourages its users to provide all of these fields of information so that users may maximize the effectiveness of the search and candidate matching services.

Passive Collection of Information – In addition to the information that you actively provide to BS by methods such as completing the registration form, BS collects information about how you interact with our site. BS collects passive information for purposes such as testing and improving a user’s experience at the site and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes and for disclosure to third parties such as advertisers and content partners. The types of passive information collected by this site include, without limitation, your IP address, which type of browser you are using, where you go on our site, and how long you stay on any part of our site. Passive information does not identify you to BS by name, and BS does not link your IP address to your personally identifiable information.

Optional Information – At various other points during your visit to BS, you may be asked to provide information about yourself. For example, you may indicate that you wish to participate in a partner company sponsored contest. At this point your information would become the property of both BS and the partner co-sponsoring the contest. In instances such as this, BS is not responsible for the information that the partner company receives. Participation in surveys or contests or the use of other services that require the input of additional information is completely voluntary on your part, and you have the choice about whether to disclose the information necessary to use these features of our site.

 

Use of Information

The information that you supply to BS enables us to provide search and candidate matching services. In addition, BS uses your information in order to customize our site to your interests and enhance your overall experience at our site. BS tries to recognize you using various methods, including having you log in with your e-mail address and your password. Once BS recognizes you, pages, advertisements and other content may be customized for you so that you can see what interests you the most. In addition, as described above, BS utilizes passive information to learn more about how you interact with our site. This passive information may be combined with your other information for purposes such as testing and improving your experience at our site and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes and for disclosure to third parties such as advertisers and content partners. This aggregate passive information does not contain any personal information that can identify any individual user.

Contacting You by E-MailBS may use your contact information periodically in order to send you e-mail regarding updates at the BS site. The frequency of these messages will vary depending upon your profile. In addition, we may send you free informational newsletters or notices relating to topics that may be of special interest to you, including job opportunities and job advice. Finally, if you specifically provide BS with permission at the time of registration, you may also receive commercial e-mails. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, we present the option to opt-out of receiving many of the newsletters and/or commercial e-mails whenever BS sends such messages. However certain communications from BS such as service announcements, administrative messages and the Weekly Newsletter are considered part of BS membership and you may not opt out of receiving them. E-mail messages from third parties are not governed by the opt-out provisions of this Privacy Policy, but all such third parties are strongly encouraged to include opt-out procedures in their messages to you.
