Cookies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website are visited and by how many people. Aksharnama cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or e-mail address is.
The "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. We recommend that you leave the cookies activated because cookies allow you to use some of Aksharnama's coolest features. Some of our business partners, like our advertisers, may use cookies on our website. We have no access to, or control over, these cookies.

Sharing Your Information
Because Aksharnama enables people to discover and share information with one another, information about the people who use Aksharnama is an integral part of the Aksharnama experience. Rest assured that we neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone and that we will share your personal information only as described below:

  1. 1. Aksharnama Personnel: Aksharnama personnel and authorized consultants and/or contractors may have access to user information if necessary in the normal course of Aksharnama business.
