Information we obtain from other sources

That information could include your name, contact details, employment details and other information relevant to the good working of the shared platform.
How we use the information we collect
We undertake to use the information you share in the manner inherent to the community objectives of the shared platform. These include sharing your profile information with the other registered users in your Room and sharing your posts according to the sharing settings that are communicated for the Assignment and/or the Discussion.
In addition we may:
- record and monitor your use of our shared platform and/or our website for our business purposes which may include analysis of usage, measurement of site performance and generation of reports;
- use it for our legitimate business interests, such as undertaking business research and analysis, managing the operation of our shared platform and/or website and our business;
- use it to look into any complaints or queries you may have, and
- use it to prevent and respond to actual or potential fraud or illegal activities.
- collate, process and share any statistics based on an aggregation of information held by us provided that no individual is identified from the resulting analysis and the collation, processing and dissemination of such information is permitted by law.
Grounds for using your personal information
We rely on the following legal grounds to process your personal information, namely:
- Consent – your personal information may be provided to us directly or by a third party. You can withdraw your consent by contacting us at email@example.com;
- Legitimate interest – we may use your personal information for our legitimate interests, some examples of which are given above;
- Compliance with law or regulation – we may use your personal information as necessary to comply with applicable law/regulation.
How we share information with third parties
We share personal information with the other members of the shared platform as above. As a result, your personal information may be transferred to locations inside and outside Europe for the purposes described above.
We may also share your personal information outside the shared learning community. This may include:
- third party agents/suppliers or contractors, bound by obligations of confidentiality, in connection with the processing of your personal information for the purposes described in this Policy. This may include, but is not limited to, IT and communications service providers;
- to the extent required by law, regulation or court order, for example, if we are under a duty to disclose your personal information in order to comply with any legal obligation.
Where we transfer your personal information outside Europe, we will ensure that it is protected and transferred in a manner consistent with legal requirements applicable to the information.
This can be done in a number of different ways, for instance:
- the country to which we send the personal information may be approved by the European Commission;
- the recipient may have signed a contract based on “model contractual clauses” approved by the European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal information, or
- where the recipient is located in the US, it may be a certified member of the EU-US Privacy Shield scheme.
In other circumstances, the law may permit us to otherwise transfer your personal information outside Europe. In all cases, however, any transfer of your personal information will be compliant with applicable data protection law.
Keeping your information and information security
Your personal information is stored on servers located within Europe and may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of that jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ.
How long we hold your personal information for will vary and will depend principally on:
- the purpose for which we are using your personal information – we will need to keep the information for as long as is necessary for the relevant purpose, and
- legal obligations – laws or regulations may set a minimum period for which we have to keep your personal information.
We will ensure that the personal information that we hold is subject to appropriate security measures.
