Use of Cookies

Our Website uses cookies. A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on a computer's hard drive. Once someone has accepted the cookie, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic and browsing habits, such as what areas of our Website are visited most frequently. At times we may gather information through the use of a cookie file which enables us to gather statistical information regarding the use of our Website. This helps us to improve not only our Website, but the Products and Services we can provide to Registrants. We may use analytical software to track Registrant habits and trends.

Registrants do have the choice to decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but people can usually modify their browser setting to decline cookies if they prefer. Should you choose to decline cookies you may be unable to access certain information or parts of our Website, and some or all of the Services may not work properly. Our advertisers and promoters or third party tool integration services may also use cookies, over which we have no control.

We may use cookies to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you register with our Website, a cookie helps us recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, preferences, and so on. When you return to our Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Website features that you may have customized.

We may also collect anonymous and aggregate information from you about your preferences in navigating the Website by using cookies, action tags and other methods. Cookies are small text files that identify your computer. We may use cookies to, among other things, monitor usage of the Website, customize features of the Website, identify your computer operating system and browser, and complete transactions. An action tag is a small, graphic image on a webpage that is designed to allow the website owner or a third party to monitor who is visiting a website by collecting the IP address of the computer to which the tag is sent, the URL of the webpage that the tag comes from and the time at which such webpage was viewed. Action tags may be associated with cookie information. We may also use such anonymous and aggregate information for promotional and other business purposes.

IP Address

An IP (Internet protocol) Address is automatically assigned to the computer that someone is using by their Internet Service Provider (ISP) and is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever someone visits our Website or uses our Products or Services. This also allows us to identify the time(s) of visit(s) and the page(s) of our Websitethat have been visited. Our collecting IP Addresses is considered a standard practice on the Internet and is done by many third party sites.

Location Information

We may also obtain information about a Registrant’s physical location, such as by use of a global positioning system (“GPS”) and other geolocation features in your computer, laptop, or mobile device, or from other information we collect. For example, a Registrant’s IP Address indicates the general geographic region from which they are connecting to the Internet.

Much of the information we obtain is from your electronic device and includes but is not limited to:

  • Device operations: information about the activities performed on your device, such as windows open while using our Website, or mouse movements.
  • Device attributes: information such as the operating system your device uses, hardware and software versions, battery level, signal strength, available storage space, browser type, application and file names and types, and device plugins.
  • Identifiers: unique identifiers, device IDs, and other identifiers that may be available from games, apps or accounts you use, and family device IDs (or other identifiers unique to ourProducts and Services associated with the same device or account).
  • Device signals: Bluetooth signals, and information about nearby Wi-Fi access points, beacons, and cell towers.
  • Data from device settings: information you allow us to receive through your electronic device settings that you turn on, such as access to your global positioning system (“GPS”) location, camera or photos. If you decide not to turn on your GPS location function in your deviceyoumay not be able to use any or all the features onour Website.
  • Network and connections: information such as the name of your mobile operator or ISP, language, time zone, mobile phone number, IP address, connection speed and, in some cases, information about other devices that are nearby or that operate on your network.
  • Cookie data: data from cookies stored on your device, including cookie IDs and settings.
  • Server Logs: We are having database logs for each query which is firing through front end or mobile application along with exception logs.
  • Cookies: We are storing a Registrant’s basic information like name, email address, role, mobile number inside cookies along with a secured user token (JWT).
  • Tracking Tools: We are using Facebook pixel tracking, google tag manager, and other required tracking tools to track a user’s journey in our Website application.

Heat Map and Tracking Software

We may use various types of website tracking software (“Tracking Software”) to track mouse movement, scrolling, and clicks on our Website in order to better understand ourRegistrants’needs and to optimize the use of our Products and Services. The most common form of Tracking Software is referred to as a “heat map” and the forms of heat maps include scroll maps, click maps, and movement maps. Heat maps are graphical representations of data where values are depicted by color. You specifically agree to our use of Tracking Software and heat maps.

Our Tracking Software may capture screen shots of a Registrant’s mouse movements, scrolling, and clicking habits which helps us understand what Registrants want, care about, and do on our Website by visually representing their clicks, taps and scrolling behavior. Some of the reasons why we use heat map software are as follows: to see if Registrants are reaching important Content or failing to see it, to find and use a page’s main links, buttons, opt-ins, and CTAs, to see if Registrants are getting distracted by non-clickable elements, and to compare usage against mobile, tablet and desktop devices.

We use Tracking Software to help us better understand our Registrants’ experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what Registrants do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our Products and Services with Registrant feedback. This Tracking Software uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our Registrants’ behavior and their devices. This includes a device's IP address (processed during your Website visit or use of our Products and Services and stored in a de-identified form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location, and the preferred language used to display our Website. This Tracking Software stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymized Registrant profile.

We may use social media pixels to track and collect general information about your use in compliance with different social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) for the purpose of promoting products, tracking conversions, remarketing, running target advertisements and so forth.

Third parties like Facebook may use their own cookies, web beacons and other technologies to collect and receive information from our Website for the purpose of providing target advertisements. You may see our ads on Facebook, other social media platforms, and other third party websites after you have visited our Website.

Website Analytics

We use multiple web analytics tools provided by service partners such as Google Analytics, may be used to collect information about how you interact with our Website and software, including what pages you visit, what site you visited prior to visiting our Website, how much time you spend on each page, what operating system and web browser you use and network and IP information. We use the information provided by these tools to improve our Products and Services. These tools place persistent cookies in your browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our Website or use our Products or Services. Each cookie cannot be used by anyone other than the service provider (example: Google for Google Analytics). The information collected from the cookie may be transmitted to and stored by these service partners on servers in a country other than the country in which you reside, or may be stored by our servers to analyze the usage behavior. The information collected is used and shared by these service providers in accordance with their individual privacy policies. You can control the technologies we use by utilizing settings in your browser or third-party tools.You can opt-out of making your activity available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.

How we are securing the PII and Financial Information of any Registrant (credit card details, mobile number, email address, any other id number, and the documents for verification) and where we are storing it?

  • We are storing only required information of cards like last 4 digit of cards, card owner name, card token for payment gateway.
  • We are storing mobile number and email address in our database which is secured with Amazon RDS.
  • We are storing PII of each Visitor and Registrant in our database but while serving through frontend application we are encrypting the same to make our application secure.
  • We are storing all documents (like photographs and government recognized identification) on S3 Bucket and serving them through cloudfront to provide the type of speed and security that is typically used in the industry.
  • For video course content we are transcoding the video files and serve it to the learners using encrypted signed URL via cloudfront.
  • The above points shares a reference for the users; however, there might be places or circumstances wherein we have changed few tools or locations or storage areas to provide better security.

The technical security driven aspects for our platform are as follows

  • Data Encryption: Use HTTPS to encrypt data in transit. Employ SSL/TLS certificates to ensure secure communication between the user's browser and the server.
  • Authentication and Authorization: User authentication is secured using secure JWT tokens and users access is restricted by authorization of different modules based on their roles and permissions.
  • Data Protection: All data is transmitted via a secure channel. All video course data is transcoded to S3 bucket and then served to Registrants as a signed URL via cloudfront. Other assets coming from S3 are also transmitted in the same fashion.
  • Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Prevention: Input validation and output encoding added to prevent XSS attacks, which can inject malicious scripts into your web pages.
  • SQL Injection Prevention: Used parameterized queries and ORM to prevent SQL injection attacks when interacting with databases.
  • API Security: APIs security with proper authentication and authorization mechanisms. Implementation of rate limiting and throttling to prevent abuse of your APIs.
  • Error Handling: Error handling to avoid exposing sensitive information in error messages.
  • Code Reviews and Security Audits: Regular code reviews to identify and fix security vulnerabilities.
  • Backup and Disaster Recovery: Used AWS RDS auto backup services for backing up data on regular intervals.
