6. Protection of Personal Information

We will hold Personal Information as either secure physical records, electronically on our intranet system, in cloud storage, and in some cases, records on third party servers, which may be located overseas.

We maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical security for our offices and information storage facilities so as to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, or modification of Personal Information. This also applies to disposal of Personal Information. We further protect Personal Information by restricting access to Personal Information to only those who need access to the Personal Information to do their job. Physical, electronic and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of your Personal Information.

We will destroy or de-identify Personal Information once it is no longer needed for a valid purpose or required to be kept by law.

7. Direct marketing

Like most businesses, marketing is important to our continued success. We believe we have a unique range of products and services that we provide to customers at a high standard. We therefore like to stay in touch with customers and let them know about new opportunities. We may provide you with information by telephone (subject to the Do Not Call Register), SMS, email or WhatsApp about new products, services and promotions either from us, or from third parties which may be of interest to you.

We will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties for marketing purposes without your consent.

If you do not wish to receive marketing information, you may at any time decline to receive such information by telephoning us on +91 2248933955 or by writing to us at: TINKERCODERS EDTECH PRIVATE LIMITED, Address: 309, Tower B, iThum Business Park Sector 62, Noida 201301, , India.

If the direct marketing is by email, SMS or WhatsApp you may also use the unsubscribe function. We will not charge you for giving effect to your request and will take all reasonable steps to meet your request at the earliest possible opportunity.

8. Cookies

A cookie is a small text file stored in your computer’s memory or on your hard disk for a pre- defined period of time. We use cookies as set out in our Privacy Policy above in section 15 “Use of Cookies and other Tracking Mechanisms”.

9. Accessing and correcting your Personal Information

You may contact our Privacy Officer to request access to the Personal Information that we hold about you and/or make corrections to that information, at any time. On the rare occasions when we refuse access, we will provide you with a written notice stating our reasons for refusing access. We may seek to recover from you reasonable costs incurred for providing you with access to any of the Personal Information about you held by us.

We are not obliged to correct any of your Personal Information if we do not agree that it requires correction and may refuse to do so. If we refuse a correction request, we will provide you with a written notice stating our reasons for refusal.

We will respond to all requests for access to or correction of Personal Information within a reasonable time.

10. Overseas transfers of Personal Information

From time to time, we may engage an overseas recipient to provide services to us, such as cloud- based storage solutions. Please note that the use of overseas service providers to store Personal Information will not always involve a disclosure of Personal Information to that overseas provider. However, by providing us with your Personal Information, you consent to the storage of such information on overseas servers and acknowledge that APP 8.1 will not apply to such disclosures. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that an overseas recipient breaches the APPs, that entity will not be bound by, and you will not be able to seek redress under, the Privacy Act.
