For unregistered users
It is advisable that you register with us in order to avail fully the benefits on our website. If you do not register, then the information we collect from you is limited.

We log your IP address in order to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our website and track usage statistics.
Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same, depending on whether you access our website through an always-on type of Internet connection (e.g., cable modem or DSL), or through a dial-up connection (e.g., VSNL, MTNL etc). Either way, it would be extremely difficult for us to identify you through your IP address, and we make no attempt to do so.
If you reached our website by clicking on a link or advertisement on another website, then we also log that information. This helps us to maximize our Internet exposure, and to understand the interests of our users. All of this information is collected and used only in the aggregate; that is, it is entered into our database, where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not reports about individual visitors.

We use the personal information we collect to help both of us! As we mentioned above, registering with us allows you to personalize our website so that it is most useful to you.

We also may share your personal information with third-parties specifically engaged to provide services (such as Insurance companies / loyalty program partners/ banks etc), in which case we will require those parties to agree to use any such personally-identifiable data solely for the purpose of providing the specified services to ADC – Ann DSilva Consulting.
