OTHERS WHO MAY RECEIVE OR HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Group companies

We may share your information with other Group companies. They may use your personal information in the ways set out in the section ‘How we use your personal information’ above, in connection with the certain specific ancillary or complementary products and/or services, for example products and services which only they can provide for regulatory reasons, or products and services which are similar to those We offer but may be under the name of a different brand. Some of our Group companies may also be service providers to us, as explained in the section below.

Please see the start of this policy for a description of what we mean by Group companies with whom we may share your personal information in this way.

Our suppliers and service providers

We may disclose your information to certain selected third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other organisations where necessary for the purposes of them providing services to us or directly to you on our behalf. Such third parties may include cloud service providers (such as hosting, data storage and software service providers), our client relationship management system provider, our app developer / provider digital and marketing agencies, and administrative services providers and debt management providers (where relevant).

When we use third party service providers in this way, we only disclose to them any personal information that is necessary for them to provide their service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it other than in accordance with our specific instructions for the purposes intended and set out in this Policy.

Credit/debit card payment processors

Where relevant, when you purchase certain products or services via our websites, over the phone or at one of our residences or premises, a credit or debit card payment may be processed with your instruction by a third party payment processing agent who specialises in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please ask us at the time of making the payment or contact us using the details at the end of this policy.

We do not store or keep a record of your credit card details on our own websites or within our own systems.

Other ways we may share your personal information

We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation. We may also transfer your personal information if we’re under a duty to disclose or share it in order to comply with any legal obligation, for example to detect or report a crime, to enforce or apply the terms of our contracts or to protect the rights, property or safety of other data subjects. If/when we do so, we will always take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected and your rights are upheld.

Where we transfer your personal information

Information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside, for example where any of our Group companies which need access to that information are incorporated in a country outside India, or if any of our servers or those of our third party service providers are from time to time located in a country outside of the United States. These countries may not have similar data protection laws as of India.

If we transfer your information outside India in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this policy. This is because some countries outside India do not have the same adequate data protection laws equivalent to those within India. These steps may include, for example imposing contractual obligations on the recipient of your personal information or ensuring that the recipients subscribe to other relevant regulatory regimes or best practice that aim to ensure adequate protection.

If you use our services, access our systems or view any of our content whilst you are outside India, your information may be transferred outside India in order to provide you with those services.

How long we keep your information for

We may share your information with other Group companies. They may use your personal information in the ways set out in the section ‘How we use your personal information’ above, in connection with the certain specific ancillary or complementary products and/or services, for example products and services which only they can provide for regulatory reasons, or products and services which are similar to those We offer but may be under the name of a different brand. Some of our Group companies may also be service providers to us, as explained in the section below.

Please see the start of this policy for a description of what we mean by Group companies with whom we may share your personal information in this way.

Where your personal data is required to complete or comply with a Contract

We may need your personal information to comply with our own legal and accounting responsibilities, and/or to establish, bring or defend legal claims. For this purpose, we will always retain your personal information for 7 years after the date it is no longer needed by us. Where we are only required to retain some of your information for these purposes, we will use our reasonable endeavours to ‘minimise’ that data and not to retain any information which we do not need to hold for 7 years.

The only exceptions to this are where:

Where you have provided Consent

We will retain your personal data for as long as we consider it worthwhile and justifiable, subject at all times to upholding your rights as a data subject.

You can review, correct and delete your personal information by emailing us at privacy@ Studentsinn.net. You must promptly reach out to us to change your information if your personal information changes or is inaccurate. Typically, we will not manually alter your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. Nonetheless, upon your request we may close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain information from closed accounts in order to comply with the law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations of any user, enforce our terms and conditions, and take any other actions otherwise permitted by law that we deem necessary in our sole and absolute discretion. You should understand, however, that once you publicly post a request, offer, comment, feedback, or any other information onto the Platform, you may not be able to change or remove it. Once we have deleted or removed your account, you agree that Students Inn P. Ltd shall not be responsible for any personal information that was not included within your deleted and/or removed account that remains on the Platform.

Data security and links to or from other organisations

We are committed to ensuring that your information is held securely in systems that can be controlled and protected in accordance with data security best practice. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from you. Where possible we only store information in structured systems (databases) which can only be accessed with secure passwords.

Occasionally it may be necessary to store or transfer some of your personal data in unstructured ways, such as on paper or in document formats that are necessary to enable us to collect and process that information in accordance with the purpose. In these cases, we will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that procedures and controls are in place to maintain the security of and access to that information.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to or from our website at all times and any transmission is therefore at your own risk. Once we have received your personal information, we put in place reasonable and appropriate controls to ensure that it remains secure against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, or unauthorised access.

Our websites may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. Similarly, we may refer you from time to time to other organisations who are not Group companies and to whom you may also provide personal data. This policy does not apply to those other organisations where this happens, therefore we encourage you to read their separate privacy statements. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites or third parties, even if you access those websites or otherwise make contact with those organisations using links or contact details that we provide.

In addition, if you linked to our website, a contact details form, or any other material we have published electronically from a third party website or an email sent to you by a third party, we are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of those third parties and recommend that you check their privacy statements as well.

Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain information we hold in any of our systems, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone and to tell us as soon as possible if you think your password may have been stolen, exposed or compromised in any way.
