Konju is an educational technology and software-as-a-service company providing a language learning platform for the global educational technology market. Our focus is on being the absolute best place to learn and practice Korean verb conjugations. We focus on combining beautifully designed quizzes to provide short, engaging learning sessions which make language learning a fun part of your daily routine and not a chore.
More information about our services and how you can use them can be found in our T&Cs and on our webpage.
When you interact with our Apps, we collect information that, alone or in combination with other information, could be used to identify you (“Personal Data”).
The Personal Information we process depends on the context of your interactions with Konju, the products and features you use, your location, and applicable law. However, the Personal Information we collect broadly falls into the following categories:
Information you provide to us: You may provide certain Personal Information to us when you sign up to a Konju account and use the Services, consult with our customer service team, send us an email, integrate the Services with another website or service (for example, when you choose to connect your Google account with Konju), or communicate with us in any other way. This information may include:
Information we collect automatically: In some (but not all) countries, including countries within the EEA, this information is considered Personal Information under applicable data protection laws. Service Usage Data may include:
Information we collect from other sources: From time to time, we may collect Personal Information about you from other sources, such as our Partners, integrations or other third parties, for example where you have given permission to the third party to share your information with us.
We may use your Personal Information which we collect for the purposes and on the legal bases identified below:
We do not sell Personal Information, and we do not send third party marketing to our users. For purposes of CCPA, and for the purposes of section 12 below, ´sale´ means the disclosure of Personal Information for monetary or other valuable consideration but does not include, for example, the transfer of Personal Information as an asset that is part of a merger, bankruptcy, or other disposition of all or any portion of our business.
We also maintain presences on social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
In addition, we are not responsible for the information collection, use, disclosure or security policies or practices of other organizations, such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Apple, Google, Microsoft, or any other app developer, app provider, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider or device manufacturer, including with respect to any Personal Information you disclose to these or other organizations.
Depending on the country in which you reside, you may have one or all of the following data protection rights: ----------
Please note that the above rights may be subject to exceptions and limitations. We cannot, for example, provide personal data if it would violate our duty of confidentiality or if we have a legal obligation to retain such data.
If you wish to exercise any of the other privacy rights that apply to you, you can do this by reaching out to us on [email protected]. If we receive an email from you, we may ask you to verify your identity to comply with applicable law, and in order to help us respond efficiently to your request.
We do not share your Personal Information with third parties outside of Konju except in the following limited circumstances:
Konju contain social features which enable a User to invite his/her friends & family to join the User on Konju. By inviting others to Konju, your User profile becomes visible to those that are invited. This means that some of your Personal Data, such as name and picture (as applicable), becomes visible for the invitees.
In order to invite others to Konju, a unique URL-link is generated for the User. As this link is unique to the User, the link may be shared by the invitee with other individuals. Unsolicited invitations using other Users URL-link may be in breach of our T&Cs and Konju reserves the right to take appropriate action if becoming aware of such unsolicited invitations. We therefore strongly advise you to only forward other User's unique URL-link with the User's prior consent.
We only collect limited Personal Information about Children directly from the parent or guardian who has downloaded the Konju app. It automatically collects information about the device and usage while a Child is using the Konju app.
At all times we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from Children other than stated above. If you have reason to believe that a Child has provided Personal Data through the Services please contact us at [email protected] and we will endeavour to delete that information from our databases.
We take appropriate and reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information. If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you may contact us at [email protected].
Konju accounts require an email and password to log in. Users must keep their email and password secure, and never disclose it to a third party. Because the information in a User’s Konju account is private, account passwords are hashed, which means we cannot see a User’s password. We cannot resend forgotten passwords either. We will only provide Users with instructions on how to reset them.
We collect information globally and may transfer, process and store your information outside of your country of residence, to wherever we or our third-party service providers operate for the purpose of providing you the Services. This may involve countries where the data protection, privacy rights and other laws may not be as comprehensive as in your country. Whenever we transfer your information, we take steps, including preventive measures, to make sure your data is always safe.
For all international transfers, both within Konju or to our sub-processors, we ensure that the recipient of your Personal Information offers an adequate level of protection by entering into appropriate back-to-back agreements with our sub-processors. All international transfers are made on the basis of the EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses (“SCCs”).
Konju maintains strict organizational and technical measures to protect Personal Information stored on our, and our trusted third parties’, servers. Access to any Personal Information we process in order to provision the Services is limited through login credentials, multi-factor authentication, access on a need-to-know basis and restricted access to administrative accounts for the employees who require access in order to perform their duties towards you, such as providing support services.
We never retain Personal Information longer than necessary for the purposes for which Personal Information was collected. We retain Personal Information where we have an ongoing legitimate business or legal obligation to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we'll refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:--------
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
If you have any questions or comments, or if you have a concern about the way in which we have handled any privacy matter, you may contact us on [email protected], or by postal mail to:
