Privacy Policy


Your privacy is important to Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre). So we have developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions.


Collection and Use of Personal Information


Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.


You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) or its affiliated trust. Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our content, services and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our services or respond to any queries you may have.


What personal information we collect

- When you create an Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) ID, donate to the Trust, access our web service, contact us or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address and contact preferences.


- When you share your content or communicate with family, friends and clients using Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) services, or invite others to participate in Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) services, Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) will use such information to fulfill your requests, provide the relevant services, or for anti-fraud purposes.


Here are some examples of the types of personal information Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) may collect and how we may use it.


How we use your personal information


- The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre)'s latest service announcements, service updates, and upcoming events. If you don't want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences.


- We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.


- We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. For example, we may use date of birth to determine the age of Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) ID account holders.


- From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about your donations to the Trust and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre), you may not opt out of receiving these communications.


- We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Amma Illam Trust's (Cow Care Centre) services, and customer communications.


Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information


We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:


- We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where an Amma Illam Trust (Cow Care Centre) services are used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our services and advertising.


- We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website and from our other services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.


- We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevance of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.


If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
