When you use our services, you’re trusting us with your information. We understand this is a big responsibility and work hard to protect your information and put you in control.
Effective March 1, 2020
INFORMATION WE COLLECTS
We want you to understand the types of information we collect as you use our services.
We collect information to provide better services to all our users — from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which labor market information you’ll find most useful, the people who matter most to you online, or which lifeware videos you might like. The information lifology collects, and how that information is used, depends on how you use our services and how you manage your privacy controls.
When you’re not signed in to a lifology Account, we store the information we collect with unique identifiers tied to the browser, application, or device you’re using. This helps us do things like maintain your language preferences while using the platform.
When you’re signed in, we also collect information that we store with your lifology Account, which we treat as personal information.
Things you create or provide to us
When you create a lifology Account, you provide us with personal information that includes your name, a password, email id, contact number, gender, date of birth, school syllabus and grade which you are studying. You can also choose to add payment information to your account. Even if you aren’t signed in to a lifology Account, you might choose to provide us with information — like an email address and contact number to receive updates about our services.
We also collect the content you create, upload, or receive from others when using our services. This includes things like assessment responses, reports based on various assessments you take, photos you save, rating you give after coaching session and other information you save in the platform.
Information we collect as you use our services
We collect information about the apps, browsers, and devices you use to access lifology services, which helps us provide features like automatic product updates. We automatically collect certain information such as when you visit, how much time you spend on the platform, videos you watch, articles you read, purchase activity and use or navigate the Sites. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information) but may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about how and when you use our Sites and other technical information. This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Sites, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, “COPPA”) require us to inform parents and legal guardians (as used in this section, “parents”) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13 (“children”). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child’s parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child’s personal information.
A school may sign up a child for online websites subject to COPPA and then under the provisions of COPPA, the school transfers such consent to Lifology through agreements with schools. This section seeks to provide the relevant notifications under COPPA, including:
- The types of information we may collect from children.
- How we use the information we collect.
- Our practices for disclosing that information.
- Our practices for notifying and obtaining parents’ consent when we collect personal information from children, including how a parent may revoke consent.
- All operators that collect or maintain information from children through this website and other marketing programmes.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM CHILDREN
Children can access many parts of the Service and its content and use many of its features without providing us with personal information. However, some content and features are available only to registered users or require us to collect certain information, including personal information, from them. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Service.
We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in an activity, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.
