General Clarifications. This Privacy Policy describes our policies and procedures on the collection, use, and disclosure of your information when you use the Service and tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

We use your Personal data to provide and improve the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Collecting and Using Your Personal Data

Use of Your Personal Data

The Company may use Personal Data for the following purposes:

We may share your personal information in the following situations given that we have ensured that all third-party data processors have a contract with Bandhu for processing User data:

Bandhu can also anonymize your personal data and supply it to third parties, to enable better targeting of delivery of services or formulation of evidence-based policies.

Disclosure of user info. Overriding the above-mentioned clauses, Bandhu may disclose user info including personally identifiable information (PII) if Bandhu reasonably thinks that disclosure is 1) necessary to comply with legal process; 2) would mitigate Bandhu’s liability in actual/potential lawsuit; 3) otherwise necessary/appropriate to protect Bandhu’s or other person/entity’s rights or property; 4) to enforce agreement(s) including ensuring payment of fees by users; or 5) to deter illegal behavior (i.e. fraud).

Retention of Your Personal Data

The Company will retain your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

The Company will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

Right to withdraw. You have the right to withdraw your consent of our use and retention of your Personal data. If you do so, we shall cease to collect any further information about you, and cease providing data to any third-party. However, we shall maintain historical records that an individual with a certain unique ID exited the platform, in order to have data on record for any possible judicial and/or legal compliance/queries that may arise in the future, and the sharing of information of you during the use of service to the third-party cannot be withdrawn. However, the storage of such data after the request to Withdraw is processed shall be done in a way in which any personal identifiers are encrypted. If such individual rejoins the platform, the historical data retained shall be redeployed to the individual’s account.

Transfer of Your Personal Data

Your information, including Personal Data, is processed at the Company's operating offices and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located. It means that this information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy, followed by your submission of such information, represents your agreement to that transfer.

The Company will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and that no transfer of your Personal Data will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information.

For all of the above, storage/transfer of any data of Indian citizens/Users shall at all times be in compliance with the laws of the country (India) of operation.


Disclosure of Your Personal Data

Business Transactions. If the Company is involved in a merger, acquisition, or asset sale, your Personal Data may be transferred. We will provide notice before your Personal Data is transferred and becomes subject to a different Privacy Policy.

Law Enforcement. Under certain circumstances, the Company may be required to disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).

Other legal requirements. Bandhu may process and disclose your personal data without your consent in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

User-submitted content. Bandhu may now or in the future let you submit videos/other communications that you or other users submit, including profile, job postings, job asks, feedback, and hosting/sharing/publishing or any other form of user-supplied content (“Submitted Content”).

Security of Your Personal Data

The security of your Personal Data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.

We strive to use commercially acceptable means which may include processes for de-identification/encryption, as well as prevention of unauthorized access to and misuse of data, to protect your Personal Data. However, we cannot guarantee your Personal Data’s absolute security.
