We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together follows:
Information You Provide. When you register, use or subscribe to any of our Services or take part in any interactive features of the Service (such as any contests, games, promotions, quizzes, surveys, research or other services or features), we may collect a variety of information, including:
"Contact Data" such as your name, email address, and phone number
"Profile Data". " when you complete your profile, you can share with us additional information, such as details on your personality, lifestyle, interests, demographic information, place of work or education, gender, age, age range preference, physical characteristics, personal description, life experiences, geographic location and other details about you, as well as content such as photos and videos. To add certain content, like pictures ("Photos"), you may allow us to access your camera or photo album. Some of the information you choose to provide us may be considered "special" or "sensitive" in certain jurisdictions, for example your racial or ethnic origins, sexual orientation and religious beliefs. By choosing to provide this information, you consent to our processing of that information.
"Transaction Data". Such as when you subscribe to a paid service or make a purchase directly from us, you provide us or our payment service provider with information, such as your debit or credit card number or other financial information including, for example, expiration date, name, address, transaction ID, timestamps, and email address. Credit card transactions are processed through industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and / or strong encryption by a third party, which only uses your information for that purpose.
"Communications Data". We will collect the information you give us during the interaction. Sometimes, we monitor or record these interactions for training purposes and to ensure a high quality of service. Of course, we also process your chats with other users as well as the content you publish, as part of the operation of the Service.
When you participate in surveys or focus groups, you give us your insights into our products and services, responses to our questions and testimonials.
When you choose to participate in our promotions, events or contests, we collect the information that you use to register or enter.
Information Automatically Collected. When you access our Service, we and our third party partners automatically record information from your device and its software, such as your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, platform type, the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave our website, date and time stamp and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your account.

Location Data. We do not currently collect your precise geolocation or any latitude or longitude coordinates for you. Some of the information we collect, for example an IP address, can sometimes be used to approximate a device’s location. In some cases, we assign the latitude and longitude of the centre of a city or state on record for you to your profile as a way to improve our analytics and matches for you. This is a general latitude and longitude and does not correspond to your real time or historical location specifically.
Information Provided by Others. We may be provided with information relating to you or your conduct on the Service by other users of the Service. For example, we will collect your email address if another user tries to refer Global Tamil Matrimony to you. We also collect information that third-party organisations may provide to us, such as contact details, demographic information, Internet navigation details (for example, how your mouse moves on a screen, which tells us if you are a bot or not) or fraud prevention information. Financial institutions or payment processors may also provide us updated payment information or payment methods related to your paid account or paid subscription and services.
We may link or combine the personal data we collect about you and the information we collect automatically. This allows us to provide you with a personalised experience regardless of how you interact with us.
We may anonymise and aggregate any of the personal data we collect (so that it does not directly identify you). We may use anonymised information for our business purposes including testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our Service and developing new products and features. We may also share such anonymised information with others.
