Learnovate Privacy Statement


LEARNOVATE values your privacy. In this privacy policy (“Policy”), we describe how we collect, use, and disclose information, including personal information that we obtain about visitors to our website www.learnovate.co.ke (“website”) and the services available through our website (“services”). “personal information” means any unique information or set of information that could be used to identify or contact an individual, such as the individual’s name, title, mailing address, email address, phone number, employer/profession, login information, password, credit card, or other specific types of personal information.

LEARNOVATE Commitment to GDPR The GDPR enforces cross-border data protection mechanisms for businesses with operations in multiple EU member states. Acting as a central supervisory authority, the GDPR governs data protection issues for all global businesses processing personal data.

LEARNOVATE as a company is committed to providing secure services by implementing and adhering to prescribed compliance policies, both as a data controller and processor. The upcoming GDPR enforcement is critical to our mission of providing EU and all our global customers with safe and dependable business software suite.

In the course of your contacts with us, you may supply us with personal information. We may use this information to respond to your requests or to contact you via mail, email, chat, or telephone to inform you of the new products, applications, or services that we believe may be of interest to you. Suppose you choose to provide us with personal information. In that case, this will be considered an explicit consent from you to the storage and use of such information for the purposes described above.

To strengthen an individual’s privacy rights, the European Union brought about the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR. Fortifying existing directives on data protection, the GDPR defines guidelines for businesses collecting, storing, and processing personal data. The regulation issued by the European Union applies to companies processing personal data of European residents and has an enforcement deadline of May 2018.

Effective compliance addresses data privacy and security requirements no matter where your business is located or what industry you belong to. At LEARNOVATE, we optimize business value from our products and services by adhering to recommended standards and policies. Hence, our cloud ecosystem is capable of providing you with a robust and scalable structure for safe processing of yours, and your customer’s data.
