What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

We also store all student assignments, videos, comments, and feedback submitted in any digital format on our website.

Data & Content submitted by users

We store all data sent by users (students, parents, faculty & others) in the form of assignments, activities, contest entries, comments, feedback, or any other, submitted in any format on our website/app in secure locations for our future reference. Constant inspiration, motivation and encouragement for students and parents are at the core of the best learning practices and, accordingly they form the core of pedagogy at Vedx Academy.

To that effect we hold the right to a) use selected content to inspire a student/parent b) to use selected, inspirational content to encourage and inspire fellow students & parents c) to use such content as part of felicitating or celebrating the achievement of a student/parent or Vedx Academy. The selection of content for such purposes will be on the basis of merit, devoid of any biases, and at the sole discretion of higher authorities at Vedx Academy.

Such content may be shared with a student/parent, circulated among a section of student-parents or posted on websites, apps and social media handles owned by Vedx Academy. We do not share any data or content with 3rd party.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
