Information Collected by Shree Somnath Trust:

We will not knowingly use information collected on this website to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Shree Somnath Trust collects information from our Devotees at several different points on our website. For purposes of this Privacy Statement, “Personally Identifiable Information” refers to information that can directly identify an individual; for example, such information may include an individual’s name, mailing address, phone number or email address etc

1.1 Information that is automatically collected:

We use IP addresses, with the help of a business partner, to analyse trends, administer the website, track Devotees’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to Personally Identifiable Information.

1.2 Information that is collected by Cookies:

A cookie is a piece of data stored on a Devotee’s hard drive containing information about that Devotee. By setting a cookie on our website, the Devotee would not have to log in with a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our website. If a Devotee rejects the cookie, they may still use our website. The only drawback to this is that the Devotee will be limited in some areas of our website. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our Devotees to enhance the experience on our website.

1.3 Information that is actively submitted to Shree Somnath Trust:

Registrations and Orders:  In order to donate online or order services from this website, a Devotee must create an account and complete a registration process. During the account creation process, a Devotee must provide the required information (such as name, email address, mobile number, identity proof etc.) so that we can stay in touch with our Devotees and authenticate them. This information is also used to fulfil order and registration requests. To avail online facilities ordered, a Devotee must provide contact information (such as name and shipping address) and financial information (such as a credit card number and its expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes, with the help of our service provider (the bank which is providing us the payment gateway facilities), and to fill Devotees’ orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the Devotee.

1.4 Third Party Advertisers on Shree Somnath Trust’s Website:

Presently, we do not provide any third party advertisement on our website. No third party interference is yet allowed and hence there is no question of collecting any information from third party from our website. In future, if we allow advertisement on this website with authorized permission, we will decide on the collection of private information by third party or use of cookies by third party. The necessary information will be mentioned in this place.

1.5 Information Shree Somnath Trust, Obtains from Third Parties:

Presently website is not collecting Devotee information from third party. Only in case of Payment Gateway, the bank (who so ever provides the payment gateway services for online transaction) collects very critical information like Credit card or debit card number, Expiry date of credit card or debit card, Credit card or debit card holders name, amount deducted from their credit or debit account and any other relevant information which is must for online transaction. These information are collected by payment gateway service provider and these information along with your contact information may be stored with payment gateway service provider. Shree Somnath Trust stores your contact information and amount you donate or pay for various services or products. The payment gateway service provider sends the transaction number to Shree Somnath Trust website on completion of payment procedure along with status of transaction (like success, cancel or error).

  1. On Successful transaction of payment:

In case of successful transaction of payment for Pooja booking or donation, services or product the Devotee will inform accordingly. The details will also inform via email (if proper email address provided at the time of payment). The amount will be deducted from Devotee’s respective bank and credited in the account of Shree Somnath Trust account. If payment is for online donation or online Pooja through temple’s official website, the Devotee will get the donation or Pooja booking slip (online) and Devotee has to get it printed. The transaction amount shall not be refundable on any condition or circumstances.

2. On Cancel/Failure of transaction of payment:

Devotee can edit/delete facilities from list of selected facilities at any point before making payment. Once Devotee navigates to payment gateway for making payment, entry for same will be stored with us. Devotee enters financial details in payment gateway and none of these details are stored with us. Only the final confirmation provided by payment gateway is stored. Payment for facility will be termed as completed and accepted by Trust only after realization of amount from bank. Only the facilities for which Trust receives complete payment are subject to cancellation policies. Shree Somnath Trust does not own responsibility of any transactions for which payment is not completed and realized in Trust's account from bank.

If Devotee cancels the transaction in middle of the process, the details are stored in the database and transaction of record generated mentioning that Devotee has interfered in middle of transaction and cancels the transaction. In case of cancellation of transaction, it is possible that server might have already completed transaction and Devotee may get the report of transaction late.

In that case:

If transaction is for donation cancellation of order is not possible.

If transaction is for services or purchase of product then Devotee has to enter cancellation of order procedure. Devotee must reach out to the support team to check the options

3. Communications from Shree Somnath Trust:
