Therefore, Vandana Publications disclaims all liability for any loss or theft of data, personal information, email addresses, passwords, or any other kind of loss resulting from hacking, theft, etc. Users are highly urged to use an assortment of alpha-numeric-special characters to create a password that is as secure as feasible. Additionally, users are urged to keep their BPI account password separate from those for their credit cards, banks, email accounts, etc. Please email our Editorial Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have unresolved privacy or data use concerns that we have not adequately addressed.

Third Party Privacy Policies
Personal data will only be disclosed by Vandana Publications in the ways specified in this privacy statement. Vandana Publications may occasionally be forced to provide personal information in response to valid requests from governmental authorities, such as when necessary to protect the country’s security or to comply with legal obligations. Unless we have your consent or are compelled by law to do so in order to comply with a legal process, Vandana Publications does not sell, rent, or otherwise make your personal information available to third parties. Please be aware that we may share information with third parties in order to provide certain services (for instance, Chapter publication). We share some of your information with the payment gateway provider we employ in order to process payments made by you. While you have the right to refuse to supply the requested information, doing so can prohibit us from offering the desired services. We provide the necessary information to third parties providing postal delivery services in the case of delivering hard copies of books to authors or other parties ordering such publications. Your personal information will only be used by these businesses insofar as it’s required to deliver the services we’ve requested from them. You will be alerted via email if Vandana Publications is taking part in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or some of its assets.
Vandana Publications may occasionally contact registered members to advise them of information that may be of interest if users have previously consented to receive email/newsletter services using the personal information. When you sign up as a member, or at any time after that, you can choose not to receive such emails by replying to them or contacting customer support. Users may also opt out by clicking the “Unsubscribe” button found in all of our marketing communications.

If obliged to do so by law or in the opinion that doing so is legally necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or defend the rights, property, or safety of BPI, employees, or members, we reserve the right to share members’ personal information.
