We may collect the following types of Personal Data.
Should we require “sensitive” Personal Data in connection with one or more of the uses described below, we will request your explicit consent to use the data in accordance with this Policy and/or in the ways described at the point where you were asked to disclose the data. If you voluntarily share with us or post/upload any “sensitive” Personal Data to this website for any other reason, you consent that we may use such data in accordance with applicable law and this Policy.
The Personal Data that is processed by us can broadly be categorized as follows: (i) data shared by you; and (ii) data shared by third parties. The Personal Data provided by you in most cases is direct when you: (i) register to use our products and/or services including the registration for a free trial; or (ii) when you apply for the role of an instructor, a teaching assistant, a mentor or a career coach, as the case may be. The Personal Data collected from third parties includes, without limitation, access or login details, profile picture or any other text/image in relation to your Personal Data which may be available with such third parties.

We reserve the right and you expressly consent to us recording the classes, discussions, processes, events, conversations, feedback, pertaining to our courses, offered online or in any other format.
Our basis for collecting your Personal Data is based on the fact that you have consented to us processing your Personal Data for a specific reason. This includes, without limitation, any information that you have made public through your social media account, information that the social media service shares with us or information that is disclosed during the sign-up and sign-in processes. Further, the processing is necessary for the performance of the contract we have with you or to take steps to enter into a contract with you and is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation we have towards you and under applicable law.
We may also share data with third parties whom we choose to acquire, or to whom we choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. If we are involved in a merger or acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider your personal information may transfer as permitted by law and/or contract.
We may share general course data (including quiz or assignment submissions, grades, and forum discussions), information about your activity on our Site or with our Services, and demographic data from surveys operated by us with third-party research institutions, such as universities, and other business partners that conduct research around subjects related to education so that they may use the data for research related to education, such as online education and continuing education.
We may use your personal information to send you relevant marketing information if you have opted-in to receive them or have not otherwise opted out. This is what we call direct marketing. We carry out direct marketing by email. If you no longer want to receive marketing communications from us in the future, you may opt out using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each communication. You can also manage your marketing preferences by contacting us.
