What Personal information is collected

In a normal case, Khawarizmionline (“Site”) refrains from collecting personally identifiable information. However, there are situations where Khawarizmionline may request the visitor’s email address to facilitate a service (e.g., Newsletter, Submit a Story, Contact Form, etc.). In such instances, explicit notification and a request for the email address will be made. Once collected, these emails serve the sole purpose intended by the visitor and are not shared with any third party.

We may utilize cookies on or in connection with our Site to retain information about you. A cookie is a very small text document, often containing an anonymous unique identifier. We employ both session cookies and persistent cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your hard drive after you close your browser, and your browser may use them on subsequent visits to the Site.

When you visit our Site, our computer may seek permission from your computer to use a session or persistent cookie. If your browser preferences allow it, our Site will send a cookie to your browser. To protect your privacy, your browser only allows our Site to access cookies it has previously sent to you, not cookies sent by other websites. Many web browsers can be adjusted to notify you when a cookie is sent and provide the option to refuse it. However, refusing a cookie may, in some cases, limit your ability to use or negatively impact the display or function of our Site, particularly certain areas or features.
