Privacy Policy

The TISS Alums Association is committed to securing the accuracy and privacy of your information.

Personal information collected

The TISSAA team uses this website to collect personal contact, directory, and affinity information. Your personal information is used to create a profile about you in our alumni and donor database, or to update your existing profile.

When credit card transactions occur, they are processed through secured sites. Your credit card information is used to collect life membership fees, process contributions to TISSAA as well as other transactions such as registration fees for events. Your credit card information is not stored in the TISSAA system.

Use of personal information

Your personal information will be used to provide you with information about Tata Institute of Social Science Alums Association activities and for fundraising purposes.

Your TISS experiences, additional education information, and personal information such as address, telephone, email may be included in TISSAA directories that are made available to other TISS alumni, students, faculty, and TISSAA team to facilitate contact among members of the community.

When you choose to join programs such as an Event, Chapter, Group or Volunteer efforts that are open to broader audiences, your contact information may be made available to participants in that program, again to facilitate contact among program participants.

Your personal information will not be used for any commercial or philanthropic purpose not directly connected with or approved by the TISSAA. Unless we are required by law, or under a contract with a vendor to perform legitimate TISSAA business, your personal information will not be given, lent, or sold to any other individual or organization.

We are proud of our alumni and will publish alumni name and degree information (year, school, field of concentration, and dissertation title) from time to time.
