Information and data collected via offline mediums are peculiar to the project/study for which the data is being collected.

Sahel understands the importance of protecting children’s privacy, especially online interactions. However, Sahel does not intentionally collect or keep the personal information of children under the age of 13.

Our digital infrastructure is secured with SSL security protocols that ensure end-to-end encryption between the data input interface and our receiving servers. Information lost or stolen in-between data transmission is completely out of our control and we take no liability for data lost or stolen to such malicious or unintentional activity. Sahel has in place appropriate technological and operational security processes (through third-party service providers) designed to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. Only authorized employees and contractors will have access to any data you provide, and that access is limited by need. Each employee or contractor having access to any personally-identifiable information is obligated to maintain its confidentiality.

Sahel complies with the Nigerian Data Protection Regulation (NDPR), which also aligns with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Sahel may be compelled to surrender personal user or customer information to legal authorities if presented with a court subpoena or similar legal or administrative order or as required or permitted by the laws, rules, and regulations of any nation, state or other applicable jurisdiction. Also, in the event of a violation of the terms and conditions of use of the site or a violation of any restrictions on the use of materials provided on or through the Site or our offline data collection mechanisms, we may disclose personal user information to our affected business partners or legal authorities.

Our data system retains information collected using verified third-party data storage services. In this case, the information stored in these infrastructures is protected via the third-party company’s policies. Sahel retains your personal information for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. We may retain your personal information for longer if it is the subject of a legal claim or otherwise relevant to future litigation.
