How we store and protect your Personal Information

Your privacy is important to us. We have put in place reasonable security arrangements, in line with industry standard practices, to protect your privacy and personal data in such manner and to such extent as we deem reasonably appropriate to prevent unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or similar risks. However, as a user of the internet, you should be aware that it is impossible for any service provider to claim to provide “perfect security”; and we therefore do not guarantee in any way, and nor should you expect, that your personal data or private communications will always remain private and/or safe from any abuse or misuse by third parties.

Our servers and data centres are located in the United States of America, and our service providers (with whom we may share your Personal Information, in accordance with the terms of this policy) may be located there and/or in other countries around the world. By providing us Personal Information, you agree that your Personal Information may be transferred to and stored in these various countries. These countries may have different and/or less stringent privacy/data protection and data security rules than those of your own country. As a result, your Personal Information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in these several countries, according to the applicable laws in those countries. Subject to the applicable laws in such countries, we will provide necessary safeguards to maintain the confidentiality and protection of your Personal Information.

We use such procedural and technical safeguards as we deem reasonably necessary to protect your privacy and to protect your personal data against loss, theft and unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification or disposal. Such safeguards include but are not limited to the use of encryption, firewalls and Secure Socket Layer technology. We will also employ appropriate security techniques to reasonably protect data against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification or disposal by users inside and outside Sankalp.

Sankalp protects the personal data it collects in a secure database with important data being encrypted, and the database servers are hosted in a protected data centre. It is pertinent to note that the access to the database is restricted to only our marketing designated team members and the database is password protected and login based only.

Sankalp employees are required, as a condition of their employment, to treat personal data held by Sankalp as confidential, and to maintain the confidentiality of that personal data.
