What information we collect and what we do with them
At OFN, we might collect personal information like email IDs, phone numbers, state, board, and class to provide better service to you if you voluntarily choose to avail of them. Also, like many other websites, OFN makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes IP addresses, browser details, ISP details, date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks etc. to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
However, if you choose to make a comment in any of our posts, and we approve it upon review, the name that you choose to provide there remains public and the email ID remains available with us. Nevertheless, we don’t share the email IDs with anyone. Certain visitors of OFN choose to interact with OFN in ways that require OFN to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that OFN gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Again, we don’t share these details with anyone.
OFN uses third-party services (Google Analytics) for analytics. All metrics information collected from your usage of the service shall be transmitted to analytics provider. This information is then used to evaluate how users use our service, and to compile statistical reports on activity for us. We may use this information in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Service and to personalize the experience for you. Anonymized and aggregated information and analysis may be made public where desired by OFN.
