We ask for only necessary information, gathering only what we believe is essential for doing business, or for the specific transaction at hand. We let users know the information we have on them and allow them to opt out of specific engagements.
The goal of this policy is to make explicit the information we gather from our partners, subscribers, and users, how we will use it, and how we will not. We will try and keep the language as simple and direct as possible.
We may collect and process data about you in the manner set out below.
You may give us information about you by completing forms on our website(s) or by corresponding with us by phone or e-mail. The information you give us may include without limitation your name, address, e-mail address, social media account information, phone number, photograph, age, and other registration information. You acknowledge that we may make information provided by you available to our team as provided.
In certain cases we may gather information about you from public sources. For example we may gather data pertaining to shared interests from university websites, conference registration sites when made available to all attendees, and other sources.
We use Zoho products as our CRM, Mail, Campaigns and for other purposes. Therefore some of our data usage practices align with Zoho practices.
In certain cases we may receive information about you from third parties. We are not currently working with third parties for information gathering but reserve the right to do so in the future. Where we retain or intend to share this data we will contact you within one month to inform you that we are holding your data.
Information from social media sites and other publicly available sources : When you interact or engage with us on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram through posts, comments, questions and other interactions, we may collect such publicly available information, including profile information, to allow us to connect with you, improve our products, or better understand user reactions and issues. We must tell you that once collected, this information may remain with us even if you delete it from the social media sites. We may also add and update information about you, from other publicly available sources.
We may combine the information we receive from other sources with information you give to us and information we collect about you. We may use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive).
We do not use your personal data as part of any automated decision-making, including profiling, which produces legal or similarly significant effects concerning you.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
We take data security very seriously. This is why we use the Zoho product platforms. Zoho is certified for industry standards such as ISO27001:2013 and SOC 2 Type II.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted on our sites; any transmission is at your own risk.
We will store your data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is originally collected, as explained in this Policy, or any other lawful purpose subsequently communicated to you, and for other essential purposes such as complying with legal obligations and enforcing our rights, such as those arising under any agreement with you. The retention period may therefore vary for different types of data, and depending on how and why it was gathered.
Criteria relevant to determine retention periods include:
We will use the information we collect about you from the use of our websites, in accordance with our and/or your legitimate interests, in order to improve your experience of our services.
In addition to the purposes mentioned above, we may use your information for the following purposes:
Some internet browsers have enabled ‘Do Not Track’ (DNT) features, which send out a signal (called the DNT signal) to the websites that you visit indicating that you don’t wish to be tracked. Currently, there is no standard that governs what websites can or should do when they receive these signals. For now, we do not take action in response to these signals.
We will not use your personal data to send direct marketing electronic messages unless you have provided your consent to us, or to a third party via which we have received the data, or you have previously used services from us. We may contact you by telephone for direct marketing purposes in the circumstances described earlier in this Policy. You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for these purposes.

We will comply with any valid request for information under the rights explained above within one month, though we may tell you that this period is to be extended by a further two months where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of the requests. This will normally be provided free of charge. If the request is manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive we may charge a reasonable fee or refuse to action the request.
