Privacy Policy

In the modern world, where we use Information Communication Technology tools for information sharing and communication, the protection of privacy interests becomes more difficult. We use these tools to share knowledge and to collaborate within our academic community. Though they offer speed and convenience, these tools are never completely secure. Computer systems and communication systems are prone to misuse and hacking by outsiders and cyber criminals.

KES Shroff College is committed to protecting the privacy, confidentiality, and accuracy of personally identifiable information in accordance with Indian law. KES Shroff College intends to take every required measure to ensure privacy and security with respect to its operations.

Scope of the Policy:

This policy is applicable to all members of KES Shroff College, which includes the students, faculty, researchers, staff, third-party contractors, and others with access to the information.

This policy applies to any information collected through visits to, and information gathered through the college logins by students, faculties, and other staff of the college.

                                                                                                                                 Information Privacy:

Personal Information

KES Shroff College understands the importance of confidentiality and security of personal information in this digital era. The college does not disclose any personal information for commercial purposes or for any other purposes outside the scope of the normal functions. KES Shroff College collects, uses, stores, and discloses information as required for the academic, research, and administrative functions of the college, complying with applicable laws and regulations, and college policies.

Personal information of individuals shall not be disclosed by the college and it shall be used only for the purpose for which it was collected.

KES Shroff College takes necessary steps to protect personal information but cannot ensure complete security as it is not possible to provide full safety to data that are transmitted through the internet and hence, not responsible for any loss or theft of information.
