What type of information do we gather?
We have categorized the type of information that needs to be collected into 2 categories. These are PII and Non-PII.
How do we accumulate and utilize information?
There are different things we do to collect and store your data and then use it. You must be familiar with it before going further. Let’s get started:
The way you utilize our website is gauged by our team. When you come to our website, we monitor several aspects like browser type, IP address, pages referred, internet service provider, date and time, platform type, exit pages, and the number of clicks. We use these factors to find the latest trend, observe the movement of visitors, regulate the website, etc. This info is used by us to gather wider demographic information. This way, we come to know about the most visited section of our website.
Questionnaires & personality profiles
At the same time, we also want to know about you completely. This is why we collect a lot of information about you in the form of questionnaires. It will help us to discover the compatible match for our members. Once we collect info via questionnaires, your personality profile is made that will give us a chance to use our ‘Match Me’ facility for making a perfect match for you. There is nothing to worry about the privacy of the information that you shared with us via questionnaires or surveys as it is kept confidential with us. In any case, if you want to share this info with other members on the website of NRI Marriage Services, just go to the ‘Privacy Settings’ and change it accordingly.
When we take your information from you, it includes your name, age, occupation, location, weight, height, religion, nationality, and background. We take an idea from this information to give you an ideal match. Upon agreeing to the privacy statement, you are bound to give us the right to reveal this information to the concerned members of NRI Marriage Services, if needed.
Your videos and photos can also be obtained by us from you so that we can share it with others.
