What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

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.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

    GAINS Education Group operates this website. It is Genius Aulad’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

    Website Visitors
    Like most website operators, Genius Aulad collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Genius Aulad’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how its visitors use its website. From time to time, Genius Aulad may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

    Genius Aulad also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Genius Aulad only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

    Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
    Certain visitors to Genius Aulad’s website choose to interact with Genius Aulad in ways that require Genius Aulad to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Genius Aulad gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a login at to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Genius Aulad are asked for information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Genius Aulad. Genius Aulad does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

    Aggregated Statistics
    Genius Aulad may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Genius Aulad may monitor the most frequently visited pages. Genius Aulad may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Genius Aulad does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

    Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
    Genius Aulad discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that

    (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Genius Aulad’s behalf or to provide services available at Genius Aulad’s website, and

    (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. By using Genius Aulad’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Genius Aulad will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Genius Aulad discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Genius Aulad believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Genius Aulad, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Genius Aulad website and have supplied your email address, Genius Aulad may occasionally send you an email to tell keep you up to date with what’s going on with Genius Aulad. We primarily use our “News” blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Genius Aulad takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
