1. Information we collect from you
You can visit this website without revealing any information to us about yourself. However, there are parts of the CAF India website where we will need to collect your personal data in order for you to proceed.
Whenever we ask you for information that enables us to identify you it will be clear that we are doing so and in every case you will have a choice as to how we use the information that is asked for. Information of this type will only be asked for on those parts of our websites that allow transactions to be performed, in contrast to those parts of our websites that are merely informational in their function. Use of any CAF's India giving tools, for example, necessarily requires that we collect personal information from you.
Information of this type will also be collected when you contact us directly by email for any reason or if you specifically request that we send you information.
