1.5 Information The Hindu Jain Temple, Obtains from Third Parties:

Presently website is not collecting user information from third party. Only in case of Payment Gateway, the bank (who so ever provides the payment gateway services for online transaction) collects very critical information like Credit card or debit card number, Expiry date of credit card or debit card, Credit card or debit card holders name, amount deducted from their credit or debit account and any other relevant information which is must for online transaction. These information are collected by payment gateway service provider and these information along with your contact information may stored with payment gateway service provider. The Hindu Jain Temple stores your contact information and amount you donate or pay for various services or products. The payment gateway service provider sends the transaction number to The Hindu Jain Temple website on completion of payment procedure along with status of transaction (like success, cancel or error). 

A. On Successful transaction of payment:

In case of successful transaction of payment for donation, services or product the user will inform accordingly. The details will also inform via email (if proper email address provided at the time of payment). The amount will be deducted from user's respective bank and credited in the account of The Hindu Jain Temple account. If payment is for donation, user will get income tax exemption certificate (in India only). The certificate will be provided in the form of donation slip (online) and user has to get it printed. If user wants a physical receipt then it will be delivered to his contact address. The exemption from income tax is only granted in case of donation made to The Hindu Jain Temple and is not refundable on any condition. However, payment of services or for purchase of products like books, photo-frames, coins, prasad, etc is not exempted from income tax. 

B. On Cancel of transaction of payment:

If user cancels the transaction in middle of the process, the details are stored in the database and transaction of record generated mentioning that user has interfered in middle of transaction and cancels the transaction. In case of cancellation of transaction, it is possible that server might have already completed transaction and user may get the report of transaction late.

In that case:

If transaction is for donation cancellation of order is not possible. If transaction is for services or purchase of product then user has to enter cancellation of order procedure. This is possible by user to enter in their account by user-id and password and selecting the order which is required to be cancelled. If order is already processed (for example book is already sent or services are already enjoyed) then cancellation is not possible.
