The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, GPS location information, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to us. Utilizing this data protection declaration, we would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed through this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
Terms not defined in this Agreement shall have the same meaning as assigned in the Terms and Conditions published on the Platform.
We collect personal data from you when you provide it to us directly and through your use of the Platform. This information may include:
Information you provide to us when you use our Platform (e.g. your name, phone number, address, email, education qualification, work experience, school name and grade or class, and any information which you add to your Account);
Transaction and billing information, if you make any purchases from us by using our Platform (e.g. credit/debit card details and delivery information);
Records of your interactions with us (e.g. if you contact our customer service team, interact with us on social media);
Information you provide us when you enter a competition or participate in a survey;
Information collected automatically, using cookies and other tracking technologies (e.g. which pages you viewed and whether you clicked on a link in one of our email updates). We may also collect information about the device you use to access our Platform; and
Other information necessary to provide the Platform, for example we may access your location if you give us your consent.
Depending on how you use our Platform, your interactions with us, and the permissions you give us, the purposes for which we use your personal data include:
To verify your Account using the information you provide to us;
To verify if Instructors are qualified for imparting knowledge to Learners and associated issues;
To provide proper services and maintain your Account;
To manage and respond to any queries or complaints to our customer service team;
To personalise the Platform to you and show you content we think you will be most interested in, based on your Account information, your purchase history, and your browsing activity;
To improve and maintain the Platform and monitor its usage;
For market research, e.g. we may contact you for feedback about our Platform Services;
To send you service-related messages, promotions, newsletters and show you targeted advertising, where we have your consent or are otherwise permitted to do so;
To provide you discount codes;
To know your location;
For analytics purposes;
For security purposes, to investigate fraud and where necessary to protect ourselves and third parties; or
To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.
We rely on the following legal basis, under data protection law, to process your personal data:
Because the processing is necessary to perform a contract with you or take steps prior to entering into a contract with you (e.g. where you have made a purchase with us, we use your personal data to process the payment and fulfil your order);
Because we have obtained your consent (e.g. where you contact us with a query, where you add optional information to your account profile, or if you consent to receive marketing from us); and
We use information about you to tailor your view of the Platform, to make it more interesting and relevant in respect of the products and offers on view.
Depending upon your preferences for Platform Services, we may use your personal data to send you marketing messages by email, phone, or post. Some of these messages may be tailored to you, based on your previous browsing or purchase activity, and other information we hold about you.
If you no longer want to receive marketing communications from us, you can change your preferences at any time by contacting us (details below), clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any email, or updating your settings in your Account. If you unsubscribe from marketing, please note we may still contact you with service messages from time to time (e.g. order and delivery confirmations, and information about your legal rights).
You may also see ads for our Platform on third party websites, including on social media. These ads may be tailored to you using cookies (which track your web activity, so enable us to serve ads to customers who have visited our Platform). Where you see an ad on social media, this may be because we have engaged the social network to show ads to our customers, or users who match the demographic profile of our customers. In some cases, this may involve sharing your email address with the social network. If you no longer want to see tailored ads you can change your cookie and privacy settings on your browser and these third-party websites.
We share customers’ personal data with third parties in the following circumstances:
With other companies as necessary to operate the Platform;
With our suppliers and service providers working for us, e.g. payment processors and delivery companies;
With our professional and legal advisors;
With third parties engaged in fraud prevention and detection;
With law enforcement or other governmental authorities, e.g. to report a fraud or in response to a lawful request; or
We will keep your personal data for as long as you are active on the Platform, and so this period will vary depending on your interactions with us. After the deletion of your Account, your personal data will be available with us for the next 6 months. For example, where you have made a purchase with us, we will keep a record of your purchase for the period necessary for invoicing, tax and warranty purposes. We may also keep a record of correspondence with you (for example if you have made a complaint about a service) for as long as is necessary to protect us from a legal claim. Where we no longer have a need to keep your information, we will delete it. Please note that where you unsubscribe from our marketing communications, we will keep a record of your email address to ensure we do not send you marketing emails in future.
On the Platform, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Platform, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under here. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our Platform was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our Platform by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Website—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our Site, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our Platform by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our Platform. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our Platform is made.
The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at here, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook, e.g. the Facebook blocker of the provider Webgraph, which may be obtained under http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/. These applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.
We use the “visitor action pixels” from Facebook Inc (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”)) on our Platform. This allows user behavior to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which is why we are informing you, based on our knowledge of the situation. Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Usage Policy which can be found at here. You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes. The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f GDPR. You can object to the collection of your data by Facebook pixel, or to the use of your data for the purpose of displaying Facebook ads by contacting the following address. Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus guarantees compliance with European data protection legislation
On this Platform, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymiser function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimisation of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat._anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our Platform from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic on our Site. Google uses the collected data and information, among other things, to evaluate the use of our Platform and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our Platform, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our Platform. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our Site by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our Platform at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under here and under here. Google Analytics is further explained under the following link.
On this Site, the owner has used Razorpay as an online service provider. Payments are processed via Razorpay and the data is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) when processing payment.
The operator of the Razorpay component is Razorpay Software Private Limited, No. 22, 1st Floor, SJR Cyber, Laskar - Hosur Road, Adugodi, Bangalore.
If the data subject chooses “Razorpay” as the payment option in the online shop during the ordering process, we automatically transmit the data of the data subject to Razorpay. By selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.
The personal data transmitted to Razorpay is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other data necessary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in connection with the respective order.
The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to Razorpay, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between Razorpay and the controller for the processing of the data will be transmitted by
Razorpay to economic credit agencies. This transmission is intended for identity and creditworthiness checks.
Razorpay will, if necessary, pass on personal data to affiliates and service providers or subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary to fulfil contractual obligations or for data to be processed in the order.
The data subject has the possibility to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any time from Razorpay. A revocation shall not have any effect on personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.
The applicable data protection provisions of Razorpay may be retrieved under here

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our Data Protection Officer. Our Data Protection Officer clarifies to the data subject whether
the provision of the personal data is required by law, contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
You acknowledge that you have read, understood, and accepted to be bound by this Code of Conduct.
Effective as of June 21, 2022.
