As a general matter, Swami Select services are designed to be open and easily accessible by anyone in the world. This policy is concerned with the Personal Information that we might receive through your use of the Swami Select services. To further understand the nature of Swami Select, we urge you to also read our Terms of Service.
1. Information Swami Select Collects
Information Collected From Users. We collect some basic information when you use the Swami Select services, depending on the nature of your use of the services. Our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information (“Log Data”) indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the site, including the web pages you view and the times you view them, information about the browser you are using, your IP address, the referring domain, and search terms use. Other actions, such as interactions with advertisements, may also be included in Log Data. We do not use personally identifiable information with respect to such Log Data, nor do we share those files except as may be permitted herein.
We do not link browsing information to the Personal Information you submit to us; we use this browsing information to personalize aspects of your search experience and for internal purposes such as to help understand how the site is being used and to improve it, and for systems administration purposes.

Further, If you do a search of pick a favorite, we set a cookie. That is specific to you if you log in with that identity, but is specific to your browser if you are not logged in.
