If you have already registered, you can close your account here by sending an email to info@aikya.net . We collect your personal information in the following ways:

  • Registration
  • When you create an account with us, you provide us with information (including your name, email address, and password) that we use to offer you a personalized, relevant experience on AIKYA.

    To create an account on AIKYA, you must provide us with at least your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a password. OR You can use single sign on feature from Facebook or Twitter, through which your email address and/or mobile number and other details is shared. You can choose to provide further information about yourself during the registration process (for example, your interests and skills), or during Facebook and Twitter single sign on. We use this information to provide you with more customized services, updates, and content, more relevant ads, and it may appear on your AIKYA profile that is viewable by others. You understand that, by creating an account, AIKYA and others will be able to identify you by your AIKYA profile, and you allow AIKYA to use this information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and our User Agreement. We may also ask for your credit card details if you purchase certain AIKYA services.

  • Profile Information
  • You can add personal details – like your interests, education, and skills – to your profile. A complete profile helps you be found by other people for relevant connections. It also means we can show you relevant ads and content.

    After you create an account, you may choose to provide additional information on your AIKYA profile, such as descriptions of your skills, professional experience, and educational background. You can list honors, awards, professional affiliations, companies or individuals that you follow, and other information including content. Providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from AIKYA by helping you express your identity; find other users, opportunities, and information; and help business opportunities and users sharing similar interest find you. It also enables us to serve you ads and other relevant content on and off AIKYA.

  • Address Book and Other Services That Sync with AIKYA
  • We collect information when you sync non-AIKYA content – like your email address book, mobile device contacts, Facebook and Twitter account content or calendar – with your account. We use this information to improve your experience and allow you and your network to be better connected. You can edit your synced information whenever you'd like.

    You may use the AIKYA contacts importer (or other similar mechanisms provided by AIKYA) to upload individual contacts or your entire address book into AIKYA. AIKYA stores this information and uses it to help you manage and leverage your contacts. We also use this information to enhance your AIKYA experience by helping you to grow your network by: identifying your contacts already on AIKYA; providing a template to send invitations to your contacts that have not registered with AIKYA; and suggesting people you may know but who may not be in your AIKYA contacts. AIKYA may also use this information to show you and other Users that you share the same uploaded contacts who may or may not be Users. Your AIKYA connections may also have access to your email address.

    AIKYA makes other tools available to sync information with AIKYA, and may also develop additional features that allow Users to use their AIKYA account in conjunction with other third-party services. For example, AIKYA's mobile applications may allow you to sync your device's calendar, email and/or contacts apps with AIKYA to show you the AIKYA profiles of meeting attendees, email correspondents and/or your contacts.

    Another example are software tools that allow you to see AIKYA and other public social media information about the people you email or meet with and leverage AIKYA to help you gain insights from and grow your network. If you grant these products (mobile applications or other AIKYA services that sync external email and calendar services) permission to access your email and calendar accounts, they will access and may store some of your email header and calendar history information in order to match it to AIKYA and other public social media profiles. AIKYA's products that sync with external email services may also temporarily cache message content for performance reasons, in a way that is unreadable by AIKYA and its service providers.

    Any information that you upload or sync with AIKYA is covered by the User Agreement and this Privacy Policy.

  • Customer Service
  • When you contact us using our Contact Us page, we collect information to respond to your questions and better serve you.
