Any person utilizing the Portal ("User" or "you" or "your") or any of its features including participation in the various contests, games (including fantasy games ("Game") ("Services") being conducted on the Portal shall be bound by the terms of this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”).


All capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Terms.

Use of Cookies:

To improve the effectiveness and usability of the Portal for our Users, we use "cookies", or such similar electronic tools to collect information to assign each visitor a unique random number as a User Identification (User ID) to understand the User's individual interests using the identified device. Unless the User voluntarily identifies himself/herself (e.g., through registration), Grid Master has no way of knowing who the User is, even if we assign a cookie to the User's device. The only information a cookie can contain is information supplied by the User. A cookie cannot read data off the User's device hard drive. Grid Master’s advertisers
may also assign their own cookies to the User's device (if the User clicks on their ad banners), a process that Grid Master does not control.
Grid Master's web servers automatically collect limited information about the User's device connection to the Internet, including the User's IP address, when the User uses the Portal. (The user's IP address is a number that lets devices attached to the Internet know where to send data to the User -- such as the web pages viewed by the User). The User's IP address does not identify the User personally. Grid Master uses this information to deliver its web pages to Users upon request, to tailor its Portal to the interests of its users, to measure traffic within the Portal, and to let advertisers know the geographic locations from where Grid
Master's visitors come.

 

Links:

Grid Master also includes links to other websites. Such websites are governed by their respective privacy policies, which are beyond Grid Master's control. Once the User leaves Grid Master's servers (the User can tell where he/she is by checking the URL in the location bar on the User's browser), the use of any information provided by the User is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site which the User is visiting. That policy may differ from Grid Master's own. If the User can't find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site's homepage, the User may contact the site directly for more information.
Grid Master is not responsible for such websites' privacy practices or content.

Security Procedures:

All information gathered on Grid Master is securely stored within the Grid Master-controlled database. The database is stored on servers secured behind a firewall; access to such servers is password-protected and strictly limited based on a need-to-know basis. However, we understand that as effective as our security measures are, no security system is impenetrable.
Thus, we cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
Further, any information you include in a posting to the discussion areas will be available to anyone with internet access. By using the Portal, you understand and agree that your information may be used in or transferred to countries other than India.

Advertising:

When Grid Master presents information to its online advertisers - to help them understand its audience and confirm the value of advertising on the Portal - it is usually in the form of aggregated anonymized data (information that cannot be used to trace a user) of Users that may include statistics and/or data concerning User traffic, User responsiveness, and User behavior to such advertisements on our Portal. When you register with Grid Master, we contact you from time to time about updating your content to provide features that we believe may benefit you.

Disclaimer:

Several deceptive emails, websites, blogs, etc. claiming to be from or associated with Grid Master may or are circulating on the Internet (“Deceptive Communication”). Such Deceptive Communication may include our logo, photos, links, content or other information. Some Deceptive Communication may call the User requesting the User to provide login name, password, etc., or inform the User that the User has won a prize/ gift or provide a method to commit an illegal/ unauthorized act or deed or request detailed personal information or a payment of some kind. The sources and contents of these Deceptive Communications and
accompanying materials are in no way associated with Grid Master. For your own protection, we strongly recommend not responding to such Deceptive Communication. You agree that we shall not be liable for any loss, damage or harm that you may suffer by relying on and/or acting upon such Deceptive Communications.
Except, as provided for the purpose of verification, as set out under the Terms and Conditions, we and/or our employees will not contact you to divulge your SPI.
