These Terms govern your use of Bharatam, Messenger and the other products, features, apps, services, technologies and software that we offer, except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply. These Products are provided to you by Bharatam.
We don't charge you to use Bharatam or the other products and services covered by these Terms & it will be FREE for forever. Instead, businesses and organisations pay us to show you ads for their products & services. By using our Products, you agree that we can show you ads that we think will be relevant to you and your interests. We use your limited personal data to help determine which ads to show you. Advertisers only gets location, gender, age & profile activeness filters to run their ads.
We don't sell your personal data to advertisers, and we don't share information that directly identifies you (such as your name, email address or other contact information) with advertisers unless you give us specific permission. Instead, advertisers can tell us things such as the kind of audience that they want to see their ads, and we show those ads to people who may be interested. We provide advertisers with reports about the performance of their ads that help them understand how people are interacting with their content.
1. The services, we provide
Our mission is to give people the power to build community & bring the India closer together. To help advance this mission, we provide the products and services described below to you:
2. How our services are funded
Instead of paying to use Bharatam & the other products and services we offer, by using the Bharatam Products covered by these Terms, you agree that we can show you ads that businesses and organisations pay us to promote on and off the Bharatam. We use your personal data, such as information about your location, gender, age & profile activeness filters to run their ads, to show you ads that are more relevant to you.
Protecting people's privacy is central to how we've designed our ad system. This means that we can show you relevant and useful ads without telling advertisers who you are. We don't sell your personal data. We allow advertisers to tell us things such as their business goal, and the kind of audience that they want to see their ads (for example, people between the ages of 18-35 who like cycling). We then show their ad to people who might be interested.
We also provide advertisers with reports about the performance of their ads to help them understand how people are interacting with their content on and off Bharatam. For example, we provide general demographic and interest information to advertisers (for example, that an ad was seen by a woman between the ages of 25 and 34 who lives in Madras and likes software engineering) to help them better understand their audience. We don't share information that directly identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us specific permission.
We collect and use your personal data in order to provide the services described above for you. You have controls over the types of ads and advertisers you see, and the types of information we use to determine which ads we show you.
