HIMMAT recognizes the importance of a survivor’s privacy. We are aware of the leap of faith it takes to trust us with such vulnerable experiences and therefore, we are committed to maintaining robust privacy protections for our users.
Capitalized terms which are not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in our Terms and Conditions.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
There are two types of information provided by the user namely “Non-Personal Information” and “Personal Information.”
Non-Personal Information includes information that cannot be used to personally identify you, and is collected through technology such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, the type of browser you use, the device from which you connected to the Service, the time and date of access, and other information that is incapable of uniquely identifying you. Personal Information includes your email, the name of your institution and other personal details pertaining to your experience voluntarily shared by you including the specific details related to your query and any evidence supporting your claim or response to a claim which you submit to us through the email id provided on the website.
HOW WE USE AND SHARE INFORMATION
In general, the Personal Information you provide to us is used to help us communicate with you, answer your queries, process your case, and to provide you legal consultancy from our team of professionals. We also use Personal Information to contact users in response to questions, solicit feedback from users and provide technical support.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We implement layers of security measures designed to protect your personal information from unauthorized access. To avail our legal consultancy services, you need to provide certain personal details through a downloadable form. Wherever possible we encourage you to use hypothetical names and places (save for certain mandatory information as will be indicated in the form) in order to preserve your privacy. At no point of time is any personal information collected and stored by the website itself.
The form carrying personal information is to be mailed to a secure email id provided on our website. Thereafter, the legal consultancy service is rendered through email communication. All email communication is protected from third party intervention as per the policy of gmail which can be found here.
The content of your communications with our team of professionals will not be disclosed to third parties under any circumstances. We treat all information provided by you in pursuance of availing our consultancy services as strictly confidential. (Find our Non-Disclosure Policy that binds all members of our team and external legal consultants here)
While we take the utmost care in protecting your information, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed through computer virus, unauthorized access, malicious attack or any other activity which cannot be solely attributable to HIMMAT. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
