BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, AND KISAN.NET PRIVACY POLICY, WHICH CAN BE FOUND AT (www.kisan.net), AND WHICH ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE. If you choose not to agree with any of these terms, you may not use the Service.

  2. KISAN.net Service
    These Terms of Service apply to all users of the KISAN.net Service. Information provided by our users through the KISAN.net Service may contain links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by KISAN.net. KISAN.net has no control over, and assume no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites. In addition, KISAN.net will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any third-party site. By using the Service, you expressly acknowledge and agree that KISAN.net shall not be responsible for any damages, claims or other liability arising from or related to your use of any third-party website

  3. KISAN.net Access
    1. Subject to your compliance with these Terms of Service, KISAN.net hereby grants you permission to use the Service, provided that:
      (i) your use of the Service as permitted is solely for your personal use, and you are not permitted to resell or charge others for use of or access to the Service, or in any other manner inconsistent with these Terms of Service;
      (ii) you will not duplicate, transfer, give access to, copy or distribute any part of the Service in any medium without KISAN.net's prior written authorization;
      (iii) you will not attempt to reverse engineer, alter or modify any part of the Service; and
      (iv) you will otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.
    2. In order to access and use the features of the Service, you acknowledge and agree that you will have to provide KISAN.net with your mobile phone number. You expressly acknowledge and agree that in order to provide the Service, KISAN.net may periodically access your contact list and/or address book on your mobile device to find and keep track of mobile phone numbers of other users of the Service. When providing your mobile phone number, you must provide accurate and complete information. You hereby give your express consent to KISAN.net to access your contact list and/or address book for mobile phone numbers in order to provide and use the Service. We do not collect names, addresses or email addresses, just mobile phone numbers. You must notify KISAN.net immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your mobile phone. Although KISAN.net will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of KISAN.net or others due to such unauthorized use.
    3. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," "offline readers," etc. or "load testers" such as wget, apache bench, mswebstress, httpload, blitz, Xcode Automator, Android Monkey, etc., that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the KISAN.net servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a KISAN.net application, and you are forbidden from ripping the content unless specifically allowed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, KISAN.net grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the website for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. KISAN.net reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases. While we don't disallow the use of sniffers such as Ethereal, tcpdump or HTTPWatch in general, we do disallow any efforts to reverse-engineer our system, our protocols, or explore outside the boundaries of the normal requests made by KISAN.net clients. We have to disallow using request modification tools such as fiddler or whisker, or the like or any other such tools activities that are meant to explore or harm, penetrate or test the site. You must secure our permission before you measure, test, health check or otherwise monitor any network equipment, servers or assets hosted on our domain. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including phone number, from the Service, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Service for any commercial solicitation or spam purposes. You agree not to spam, or solicit for commercial purposes, any users of the Service.

  4. Intellectual Property Rights
    The design of the KISAN.net Service along with KISAN.net created text, scripts, graphics, interactive features and the like, and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein ("Marks"), are owned by or licensed to KISAN.net, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under Intellectual property rights, INDIA . The Service is provided to you AS IS for your information and personal use only. KISAN.net reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Service. You agree to not engage in the use, copying, or distribution of any of the Service other than expressly permitted herein, including any use, copying, or distribution of Status Submissions of third parties obtained through the Service for any commercial purposes.

  5. User Status Submissions
    1. The KISAN.net Service allows KISAN.net users to submit status text, profile photos and other communications submitted by you, as well as the automatic submission of your “last seen” status (collectively, the "Status Submissions"). These Status Submissions may be hosted, shared, and/or published as part of the KISAN.net Service, and may be visible to other users of the Service who have your mobile phone number in their mobile phone and which you have not expressly blocked. For clarity, direct messages, location data and photos or files that you send directly to other KISAN.net users will only be viewable by those KISAN.net user(s) or group(s) or channel (s) you directly send such information; but Status Submissions may be globally viewed by KISAN.net users that have your mobile phone number on their smartphone, unless the user is blocked by you. You acknowledge and agree that any Status Submissions may be globally viewed by users that have your mobile phone number, so don’t submit or post status messages or profile photos that you don’t want to be seen globally. A good rule of thumb is if you don’t want the whole world to know something or see something, don’t submit it as a Status Submission to the Service. The submission of your 'last seen' status is done on an automatic basis. As clarified in the following section, you retain your ownership rights in your Status Submissions. You understand that whether or not such Status Submissions are published, KISAN.net does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions.
    2. You shall be solely responsible for your own Status Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. Because KISAN.net is only acting as a repository of data, user submitted statuses do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of KISAN.net, and KISAN.net makes no guarantees as to the validity, accuracy or legal status of any status. In connection with Status Submissions, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that:
      (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize KISAN.net to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all Status Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service; and
      (ii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the Status Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service.By submitting the Status Submissions to KISAN.net, you hereby grant KISAN.net a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licensable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the Status Submission in connection with the KISAN.net Service, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the KISAN.net Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each subscriber to your status on the KISAN.net Service a non-exclusive license to access your Status Submissions through the Service. The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a Status Submission from the KISAN.net Service.
    3. In connection with Status Submissions, you further agree that you will not:
      (i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights,
      including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant KISAN.net all of the license rights granted herein; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage KISAN.net or any third party;
      (iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate;
      (iv) impersonate another person;
      (v) send or store material containing software viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents or programs;
      (vi) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or the data contained therein; or (vii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks.
    4. Adult content must be identified as such. KISAN.net does not endorse any Status Submission or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and KISAN.net expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with Status Submissions. KISAN.net does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights via its Service, and KISAN.net will remove all content and Status Submissions if properly notified that such content or Status Submission infringes on another's intellectual property rights.
      KISAN.net reserves the right to remove content and Status Submissions without prior notice. KISAN.net may also terminate a user's access to the Service, if they are determined to be a repeat infringer, or for any or no reason, including being annoying. A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than once and/or has had a Status Submission removed from the Service more than twice. An annoying person is anyone who is (capriciously or not) determined to be annoying by authorized KISAN.net Admin. KISAN.net also reserves the right to decide whether content or a Status Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to excessive length or limited interest. KISAN.net may remove such Status Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
    5. You understand that when using the KISAN.net Service you will be exposed to Status Submissions from a variety of sources, and that KISAN.net is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such Status Submissions, and that such Status Submissions are not the responsibility of KISAN.net. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to Status Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against KISAN.net with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold KISAN.net, its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the KISAN.net Service.
    6. KISAN.net permits you to link to materials on the Service for personal purposes only. KISAN.net reserves the right to discontinue any aspect of the KISAN.net Service at any time.

  6. Warranty Disclaimer
    YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE KISAN.net SERVICE SHALL BE AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, KISAN.net, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE AND YOUR USE THEREOF.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that KISAN.net does not own or control, or to individuals whom KISAN.net does not employ or manage, including any of the third parties to which KISAN.net may disclose user information as set forth in this Privacy Policy

The Information KISAN.net Collects
KISAN.net may obtain the following types of information from or concerning you or your mobile phone device, which may include information that can be used to identify you as specified below (“Personally Identifying Information”):

User Provided Information: You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your mobile phone number, push notification name (if applicable), billing information (if applicable) and mobile device information to KISAN.net when choosing to participate in various uses of the KISAN.net Service, such as registering as a user, updating your status or requesting status for your contacts. In order to provide the KISAN.net Service, KISAN.net will periodically access your address book or contact list on your mobile phone to locate the mobile phone numbers of other KISAN.net users (“in-network” numbers), or otherwise categorize other mobile phone numbers as “out-network” numbers, which are stored as one-way irreversibly hashed values.

Cookies Information: When you visit the KISAN.net Site, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. KISAN.net uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, the KISAN.net Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

Log File Information: When you use the KISAN.net Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, your phone number, phone number you are requesting the status of and various status information. When you use the KISAN.net Service, our servers log certain general information that our application sends whenever a message is sent or received, or if you update or request any status information, including time and date stamps and the mobile phone numbers the messages were sent from and to.

The Way KISAN.net Uses Information
If you submit Personally Identifiable Information to us through the KISAN.net Site, or KISAN.net Service, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the KISAN.net Site and KISAN.net Service. In particular, your mobile phone number is essential to your use of the KISAN.net Service and will be retained. Any billing information that may be collected from you will be deleted thirty (30) days after the termination of your account with KISAN.net. Any Personally Identifiable Information or status content that you voluntarily disclose on the KISAN.net Service becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by other users of the KISAN.net Service (unless such user is blocked by you). Your name (as it is saved in other user's mobile phone address book or contact list) may be displayed to other users when you update your status messages through the KISAN.net Service and other users may contact you through the KISAN.net Service. We do not use your mobile phone number or other Personally Identifiable Information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your mobile phone number (or email address, if provided) without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major KISAN.net Site or KISAN.net Service changes or for customer service purposes). We may use both your Personally Identifiable Information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the KISAN.net Site and KISAN.net Service and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. Hopefully we improve the KISAN.net Site and Service and don't make it worse. We may use cookies and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the KISAN.net Service or KISAN.net Site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor individual and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (d) track your entries, submissions, views and such.

When KISAN.net Discloses Information
Other users of the KISAN.net Service may see your post (s) in a way that is consistent with the use of the KISAN.net Service. If another user has your mobile phone number stored in their mobile phone address book or contact list, they will be able to see your status information unless you have chosen to block such users. “Last Seen” information is available and displayed to each user who has your mobile phone number in their mobile phone address book or contact book (and which you have not blocked), and reflects the last approximate time the KISAN.net mobile application has been used or brought to the foreground on your mobile phone. “Last Seen” information is reported to KISAN.net when a user brings the mobile application to the foreground.

We do not sell or share your Personally Identifiable Information (such as mobile phone number) with other third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with third party service providers to the extent that it is reasonably necessary to perform, improve or maintain the KISAN.net Service. We may share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the KISAN.net Site. We may collect and release Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with Indian laws, international law or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant or equivalent, or where in our reasonable belief, an individual’s physical safety may be at risk or threatened. KISAN.net also reserves the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that KISAN.net believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the KISAN.net Site or our servers, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of KISAN.net, our users or others.

Your Choices
You may, of course, decline to submit Personally Identifiable Information through the KISAN.net Site or the KISAN.net Service, in which case KISAN.net may not be able to provide certain services to you. If you do not agree with our Privacy Policy or Terms of Service, please delete your account, uninstall the KISAN.net mobile application and discontinue use of the KISAN.net Service; your continued usage of the KISAN.net Service will signify your assent to and acceptance of our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as SMS authentication in certain cases) to verify your identity before registering your mobile phone number and granting you access to the KISAN.net Service. Please contact KISAN.net via email to support at support@kisan.net or available web forms with any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, your personal information, your consent, or your opt-in or opt-out choices.

Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites
KISAN.net is currently ad-free and we have no intention to introduce advertisement into the product, but if we ever do, will update this section.

Our Commitment To Data Security
KISAN.net uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to KISAN.net and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured wifi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the KISAN.net Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, KISAN.net makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If KISAN.net learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. KISAN.net may post a notice on the KISAN.net Site or through the KISAN.net Service if a security breach occurs.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, KISAN.net does not knowingly collect or maintain Personally Identifiable Information or non-personally-identifiable information on the KISAN.net Site or KISAN.net Service from persons under 16 years of age, and no part of the KISAN.net Service is directed to or intended to be used by persons under 16. If you are under 16 years of age, then please do not use the KISAN.net Service or access the KISAN.net Site at any time or in any manner. If KISAN.net learns that Personally Identifiable Information of persons under 16 years of age has been collected on the KISAN.net Site or KISAN.net Service, then KISAN.net may deactivate the account and/or make the status submissions inaccessible. And always, think of the children!

In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy
In the event that KISAN.net is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the (hopefully) unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.

Changes and updates to this Privacy Notice
This Privacy Policy may be revised periodically and this will be reflected by the "effective date" below. Please revisit this page to stay aware of any changes. Your continued use of the KISAN.net Site and KISAN.net Service constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any amendments. This privacy policy is effective from 1 Jan 2017.
