By visiting this Web site, or using any of our services, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy.

WHAT DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVER? This Privacy Policy covers Westbridge Technology's treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that Westbridge Technology gathers when you are accessing this Web site and when you use Westbridge Technology services. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Westbridge Technology does not own or control, or to individuals that Westbridge Technology does not employ or manage.

Personal Information You Provide to Us:

  • We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include names, addresses, email addresses, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry, personal interests and other demographic information.

  • Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Westbridge Technology only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Web site or services so that we can make the Web site appealing to as many users as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Web site, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience.
