Protection of information
How SJVS handles privacy internally
Our commitment to security
We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online. While we strive to protect your personal data against potential risks and exposures, the absolute security of data in the online sphere cannot be guaranteed. Hence, we ask you to support our information security efforts by not disclosing any data on our Site that is particularly sensitive (including financial information, information relating to physical, physiological and mental health, sexual orientation etc.) or not required in the specific context on any of our Sites. Furthermore, you can help us protecting your personal data by signing off when you finished using log-in protected areas of the site.
Storage of information
In addition to aggregate information (discussed previously), we may share some kinds of information with third parties as described below.
- Companies and people who work for us: Because we are a large organisation, we contract with other companies and individuals to help us provide services. For example, we may host our Site on another company’s computers, hire technical consultants to maintain our web-based sites, or work with companies to remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, and provide customer service. In order to perform their jobs, these other companies may have limited access to some of the personal information we maintain about our users. Other companies may collect information on our behalf through their sites. We require such companies to comply with the terms of our privacy policies, to limit their access to any personal information to the minimum necessary to perform their obligations, and not to use the information they may access for purposes other than fulfilling their responsibilities to us. We use our best efforts to limit other companies’ use of personally identifiable information.
- Legal requirements: We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is required to comply with law.
- Links to other websites: We may from time to time provide links to third party websites for your convenience and information. We may also use third party websites, social media platforms and pages therein which would be hosted and owned by third parties. Such third party websites are not controlled by us.

Such third party websites or social media platforms may have their own privacy policies in place, which we recommend that you review if you visit any such websites or social media platforms. We do not, assume any responsibility or liability arising out of, or associated with the use of such third party websites or social media platforms, the content of such websites (other than content managed by SJVS) and their privacy practices, nor do we endorse them.

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important.
App: SJVS has published two Android Mobile applications, namely “VIDYAGRAHA” and “PROJECT CONNECT” for the benefit of the students of the schools managed by SJVS. We encourage parents and teachers to supervise their child or student’s use of the App. No personal information is collected or solicited from a child user of the App. We may collect analytics data (which does not contain personal information) from a child’s use of the App in order to offer and develop the Service, and we may collect information about a child such as age and nickname from you as part of your use of the App and the creation of your child’s user profile. We strive to keep the level of information collected from your child to a minimum, and in no event do we collect more information than what is required to use our learning app. The App contains no external links to third-party websites or services. We require all users of the App to use a parent or guardian’s email address in order to create an account.
