Collection of Information
Adyug collects both personal and non-personal information using the methods listed below. Our primary purpose in collecting such information is to provide you with a personalized Adyug experience by displaying content and delivering offers that are likely to be of interest to you according to your preferences.
Information Collected at Registration
To take advantage of the offers available at Adyug, you must register for our service and become a Adyug Member. Adyug collects personal information when you register with us and when you use Adyug services. Adyug may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or companies. During registration, we require members to give us basic contact information (such as your first name, last name ,e-mail address and mobile number), demographic information (such as your zip code, age and gender) and personal information(education,profession,marital status). The registration form information requests may change from time to time. Although additional demographic information may be requested at the time of registration, only information marked "required" is necessary for registration and utilization of our services. Once you register with Adyug, you are not anonymous to us.
We do not accept registrations from persons under the age of eighteen. The Adyug Program is available only to persons who are eighteen years of age and over. The site will automatically block enrollment of any person once they indicate they are under the age of eighteen. If we later learn that a user is under the age of eighteen, we will terminate the account and delete the user's information. Inherent in the Program is the responsibility of parents and/or guardians to ensure that their children's privacy is protected. Adyug will not be liable for any content or advertisements viewed by minor children in violation of the terms of this agreement.
