Security

Zodiac Services Centre, Astroservices.Net or Astroservices.in -this website takes every precaution to protect our customer’s users’ information. When they submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information via third party – (such as credit card number and/or social security number or ID), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry like SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Chrome, Mizilla and Microsoft Internet Explorer etc becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk if applicable. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. If applicable employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees/ astrologers are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to checking contact us page.

Supplementation of Information

In order for this website to properly fulfill its obligation to our customers, it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.

For example, to determine if our customers qualify for one of our credit cards, we use their name and social security number to request a credit report. Once we determine a user’s credit-worthiness, this document is destroyed. Also the third party site helps us to fulfil this requirement for transaction etc.

In order for this website to enhance its ability to tailor the site to an individual’s preference, we combine information about the purchasing habits of users with similar information from our partners, to create a personalized user profile. When a user makes a purchase from either of these two companies, the companies collect and share that purchase information with us so we can tailor the site to our users’ preferences if applicable for this site only.

Special Offers

If applicable, we send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username if necessary. If we have established members they will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter etc.

Site and Service Updates

We also send the user site and service announcement updates sometimes if required and applicable only. Members are not able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone etc.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page or by emailing our Customer Support. Some sites may also provide telephone or postal mail options for updating or correcting personal information.

Choice/Opt-out

Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. This can be informed via email or phone or by disabling in the form itself. For example, our order form may have an ‘opt-out’ mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don’t want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.

Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at contact us page in the site. Some sites are able to offer opt-out mechanisms on member information pages and also supply a telephone or postal option as a way to opt-out.

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties if applicable to us and only via our website. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes directly in this page only; but links available in home page. Users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Beyond our limit in any other manner; if the information of anyone are hacked or cracked,  Zodiac Services / Centre, Astroservices.Net or Astroservices.in are not responsible of any such problems or liabilities of our customers or users.
