How We Gather Information From Users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in surveys, sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site. When you provide us with your email address, we will send you periodic emails or advertising. We may add your email address to other electronic platforms we use to target our audience and enhance your user experience with our website, products and services. Generally, we will ask you to indicate whether or not you want to receive certain types of communication from us, and we will adhere to your preferences unless we consider a particular communication to be absolutely necessary.
Emails and advertising will contain a link at the bottom to be removed from our list. Like most Web sites, StudyGang also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log your Internet Protocol address (“IP address”), the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology, such as conversion and tracking pixels, to recognize you and hold information from your visit or from your visit to a third party site. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of StudyGang or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customize StudyGang’s features according to your preferences.
StudyGang is meant for the general audience and is not targeted towards users below 13 years of age, therefore, we do not knowingly request access to, collect or process personal information of any such user.
How We Protect Your Information
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information. We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
What We Do With The Information We Collect?
Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualised content and advertising. We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we are required by law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by StudyGang may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note, we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
How We Use Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to identify you as the same user when logging in through different devices. This allows us to analyze and understand user behaviour, in aggregate, without transmitting or revealing any personally identifying information.
We may also use Google Analytics to connect your individual usage behaviour data to your account information, in order to provide more relevant support and communications to you, and enhance your experience.
We do not upload any data that allows Google to personally identify an individual (such as certain names, social security numbers, email addresses, or any similar data), or data that permanently identifies a particular device (such as a mobile phone’s unique device identifier if such an identifier cannot be reset).

How do We Handle Data Security?
StudyGang has implemented suitable technical and organisational measures to secure your personal information in compliance with our legal and privacy requirements and contractual obligations. We also seek appropriate contractual protection from our partners regarding their collection, use or treatment of user data. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet and mobile platforms is not completely secure.
Changes to this Policy
We will alert you to significant changes by posting the date our policy got last updated, placing a notice on StudyGang, or by sending you an email when we are required to do so by applicable law. What constitutes a significant change will be determined at our sole discretion.
By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.
