This web site (the "Site") is provided by Kotak Mahindra (UK) Ltd., (referred to as "Kotak"). In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any individually identifiable information about yourself. We may collect, store or accumulate certain non-personally identifiable information concerning your use of this Site. For example, we may collect the Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses of visitors and, for each IP address, the number and length of visits, pages viewed and browser used. We may use a log analysis program to determine domain names associated with certain IP addresses and to analyze patterns of use for all or some of the IP addresses we collect.

We may share or transfer such non-personally identifiable information with or to our affiliates, licensees, agents and partners.
There are times, however, when Kotak may need to obtain personally identifiable information from you, such as your name, address and e-mail address ("Personal Information"), in particular in connection with the use of the services offered on the Site.
