Our Security Practices

This Privacy Policy applies for Indian Customers only. Our Websites are hosted in India and are intended only for Indian visitors. Like almost every website, the Site may be accessed by an international audience. If you are a non-Indian visitor to our website, by visiting our website and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be processed for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy. In addition, such data may be stored on servers located in India, which may have less stringent privacy practices than those your own resident jurisdiction. By providing us with your data, you consent to transfer of such data. Skillz4life will not be responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction and makes no representations, warranties or guarantees that it complies with privacy, data protection or cyber security laws and regulations outside India.

When you register online with our Site or sign-up, you can choose not to receive information about merchandise, services and special promotional offers from us by direct mail and/or electronically, including by email and text message. If you elect not to receive such product marketing information by direct mail or electronically, Skillz4life may continue to contact you as necessary to service your account and process your transactions. You can change your preferences by following the instructions for opting out at the end of the marketing email, or by following the instructions for Account Information on the Site or by contacting Customer Service at [email protected]

Information that Skillz4life Collects

When you register an account on the Site, Skillz4life may collect the information that is personally identifiable such as names, addresses, e-mail address, phone number, personal URLs, photographs and credit card numbers (“Personal Information“).

In connection with employer reviews, work history information, and other content you may contribute, Skillz4life (and/or its third party service providers) will collect a wide variety of employee and salary-related information on a voluntary basis. Please be aware that while some pieces of information that you provide to us would not be sufficient to identify you when seen by another user without any context, the combination of different pieces of information that you have provided for viewing by other users, or any contextual information, may allow other users to identify you.

As you use the Services, certain information that is not Personal Information may also be collected passively, including your Internet protocol (IP) address, browser type, domain name, operating system and referring website. Skillz4life may also use “cookies”, “pixel tags” and other Tracking Technologies (defined hereinafter), to enable functionality on our websites, as well as a variety of other ways to enhance or personalize your online browsing.

Skillz4life also works with third-party companies that use their tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) on our websites in order to provide tailored advertisements on our behalf and on behalf of other advertisers across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on our sites and your interaction with our advertising and other communications and use this information to determine which ads you see on third-party websites and applications.

Skillz4life may periodically conduct surveys of visitors to our Site for internal research purposes that may include marketing. If you choose to respond to such surveys, we may ask you for some Personal Information and/or may contact you for more information, but only if you have given us permission to do so.

Skillz4life may also receive Personal Information about you from outside the Site, for instance, from third parties that provide services for us that are related to the Services. We may add this information to the information we have already collected from you via our Services.

Public Posting

One of the purposes of the Services is for Members to share content with other Users. Therefore, you should assume that any information that you post to the publicly available areas of the Sites will be made available to other Users of the Services and the public at large. We provide you the ability to anonymously post certain comments under a chosen username, in which case we will not include your contact information (i.e., email address) on the Sites in connection with such comments. However, our internal records may associate your contact information with such comments.

If you provide feedback about the Services to us, we may use and disclose such feedback for any purpose, provided we do not associate such feedback with your Personal Information. We will collect any information contained in such feedback and will treat the Personal Information in it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Consent

Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the handling, collection, use and disclosure of such information (including to third parties) in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the laws applicable for the time being in the territory of India. The information collected by Skillz4life through various publications, websites and other services or such information collected through contests, vote in polls, opinions, subscriptions such as our online newsletters or participation in one of our online forums or communities, should be strictly subjected to the application of this Privacy Policy. We may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our web pages such as the type of browser, operating system and the domain name. Information that we collect has already been elaborated above.

Site Usage Information

Skillz4life (including its third party service providers) may inactively collect from information from you that is not Personal Information. In addition to the information collected as described above, Skillz4life may also collect information about your browsing behaviour, such as the date and time you visit the Site, the areas or pages of the Site that you visit, the amount of time you spend viewing the Site, the number of times you return to the Site and other click-stream data. This helps us assist you by allowing us to understand how visitors use our Site. This data also becomes part of your unique profile and allows us to make your browsing experience beneficial. We, or a third party designated by us (such as Google Analytics), may also collect information from your activities on the Site as well as other sites for the purpose of providing advertisements and other content that is customized to your interests and preferences. To accomplish all this, and also to allow us to offer our customers streamlined ordering and other useful features, we, as do many web sites, use and allow our third party advertising companies to use the technologies listed below and other similar technologies (the “Tracking Technologies“):

Cookies and Clear GIFs – Skillz4life may use cookies to collect the non-personal information described above. A cookie is a piece of information that is typically stored on the hard drive of your computer when you access the Site. Skillz4life may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) for a variety of tasks, for instance, to store your login information (if any) and your personal preferences for the Services. You can decline cookies, but by doing so, you may not be able to use certain features on the Site. Cookies help collect anonymous and aggregate advertising metrics, such as counting page views, promotion views or advertising responses. Cookies also track where you travel on a site and what you look at and purchase. Pixel tags in our emails may be used to track your interactions with those messages, such as when you receive, open, or click a link in an email message from us. These technologies may also be used to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click, other actions you take in connection with the sites and our online ads. A clear GIF is typically a small, transparent image located on a web page or in an e-mail or other type of message, which is retrieved from a remote site on the Internet enabling the verification of an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or message.

IP Address Tracking and Clickstream Data – In addition to cookies, pixel tags and clear GIFs, Skillz4life also automatically collects information about your server’s Internet address when you visit our Site. This information, known as an Internet Protocol address, or “IP Address”, is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider whenever you are on the Internet. When you view pages from our Site, our servers may “log” your IP Address and sometimes your domain name. Our server also may record the page that linked you to us and related information including any ads you may have clicked on. Such information is known as “Clickstream Data”.

Email Interconnectivity – If you receive email from us, we may use certain tools to capture data related to when you open our message, click on any links or banners it contains and make purchases.

In some cases, we may link the non-Personal information collected through the Tracking Technologies with certain of your Personal Information. WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ACCEPTING TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES ONTO YOUR COMPUTER IN NO WAY GIVES US ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER OR ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU. YOU MAY SET YOUR WEB BROWSER SOFTWARE TO REJECT TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES, BUT, IF YOU DO SO, CERTAIN FUNCTIONALITY OF THE SITE MAY BE AFFECTED. Third parties (including, but not limited to, software vendors, advertisers and fulfilment companies) may also use Tracking Technologies by or through the Site. WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER WHAT INFORMATION SUCH THIRD PARTIES TRACK OR COLLECT, AND HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY TRACKING, DATA COLLECTION OR OTHER ACTIVITIES OF SUCH THIRD PARTIES

Mobile Device Identifiers

You may be visiting the Site from your mobile device. Certain mobile service providers uniquely identify mobile devices and we or our third-party service providers may receive such information if you access the Site through mobile devices. Some features of the Site may allow for the collection of mobile phone numbers and we may associate that phone number to mobile device identification information. Furthermore, some mobile phone service providers operate systems that pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the provider, we or our third-party service providers may receive this information.
