NDLI collects three (3) types of information:
NDLI may collect different data from or about user depending on how user uses the Services. Below are some examples to help user understand better the data NDLI collects.
When a user registers in NDLI and uses its Services, NDLI collects the data he/she provide directly, including:
Registration Data: In order to use certain features (like accessing some contents), user needs to register in NDLI. When user registers giving his/her personal information or later updates these information, NDLI stores these data, like user's email address, password, address, educational role, institute name, preferred language, gender, date of birth and mobile number ("Registration Data").
Content Usage Data: When user accesses contents, NDLI may collect certain data including the contents, courses, assignments, labs, workspaces, and quizzes that user may have worked on.
Data about user account on other platforms/services: If user accesses or use NDLI Services through a third-party platform or service, or click on any third-party links, the collection, use, and sharing of his/her data will also be subject to the privacy policies and other agreements of that third party.
When a user accesses NDLI's Services (including browsing content), NDLI may collect certain data by automated means, including:
System Data: Technical data about user's computer or device, like his/her IP address, device type, operating system type and version, unique device identifiers, browser, browser language, other systems data, and platform types ("System Data").
Usage Data: Usage statistics about user's interactions with NDLI's Services, including contents accessed, time spent on pages or the Service, pages visited, features used, search queries, date and time, and other data regarding user's use of the Services ("Usage Data").
The data listed above is collected through the use of server log files and tracking technologies, as detailed in the "Cookies and Data Collection Tools" section below. It is stored and associated with user's account.
NDLI uses cookie technology to gather the data listed above.
NDLI and its home grown Analytics tool use server log files and automated data collection tool like cookies (covered in section 1.3 above) (together, "Data Collection Tools") when user accesses and uses the Services. These Data Collection Tools automatically track and collect certain System Data and Usage Data (as detailed in Section 1) when user uses NDLI's Services.
NDLI uses Data Collection Tools for the following purposes:
NDLI uses user data to do things like provide its Services, communicate with user, troubleshoot issues, secure against fraud and abuse, improve and update its Services, analyze how people use its Services, and as required by governmental authority or law or necessary for safety and integrity.
NDLI uses the data it collects through user’s use of its Services to:
NDLI may share certain user data with a very limited population like researchers, NDLI affiliates, etc. NDLI may also share user data as needed for security, legal compliance, and governmental requirement or as part of a change in ownership. NDLI uses its home-grown Analytics tool for service improvement and thus the question of sharing data with third parties for Analytics and Data enrichment does not arise.
NDLI takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of user's personal data that it collects and stores. These measures vary based on the type and sensitivity of the data. However, no system can be 100% secured. So NDLI cannot guarantee that communications between user and NDLI or any information it collects through its Services will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. User's password is an important part of security system, and it is user's responsibility to protect it. User should not use a very simple password and should not share password with anyone, and at any time, if user believes that his/her password or account has been compromised, he/she should change it immediately.
User may choose not to provide certain data to NDLI, but he/she may not be able to use certain features of the NDLI Services.
