In other words, you will not get spam from us. We may use third-party services for sending these newsletters and to whatever extent required, may need to give them access to the database of email ids for that purpose. The privacy policy of such third party organisations with respect to the use of email distribution lists will then apply to the safety and use of your email ids.

We may allow readers to comment on articles, where we ask for details such as name, email, website address and so on. They may, with the exception of the email address, be displayed on the page to enable others to read and respond to these comments. We may use a third-party plugin to manage this process and it may so happen that these details will be stored on the third party’s servers. In such cases also, the safety and privacy of your email ids will be subject to the policies of the third-party organization.

We will not share your email address with any third party, other than as mentioned above for distribution of newsletters or with a third party plugin to manage comments. The only exception is if any statutory authority seeks this data from us, on the basis of any relevant laws.
