Obtaining Consent

By submitting your Personal Data, you consent to us using that information in manner as set out in this policy. This shall include and not be limited to disclosure to third party providers referred to in this policy.

Collection and Use of Personal Data

Information We Collect

“Personal Data” is non-public information that is personally identifiable to you and obtained for us to provide you with the prescribed services within our platform. This may include, but is not limited to your full name; gender; age; country; email address; city. 

Through our Platform, services and other surveys and questionnaires provided to you, we collect Personal data that you voluntarily provide to us, our behavioural health coaches and clinicians on Our Platform, including information about your health and personal goals. The Personal Data voluntarily provided to our behavioural health coaches and clinicians on the Platform is encrypted and only the health coaches/ clinicians have access to them. Intellect will, however, have access to aggregated data such as risk level, presenting issues, etc. The main purposes for collection of such data : (i) develop, refine, utilise and test data and outcomes of research findings and tools to further analyse pre and post counselling/coaching care for the students itself;  and (ii) summarise the utilisation rates/trends in the bi-annual reports shared with NTU.

We also automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device; Usage Data; Universally unique identifier (UUID); Crash information; device information; unique device identifiers for advertising (Google Advertiser ID or IDFA, for example); geography/region; number of users; number of sessions; session duration; In-app purchases; Application opens; Application updates; first launches; operating systems. We may also collect Personal Data classified as Personal Health Information (PHI) under certain privacy laws. Within this Privacy Policy, personally identifiable information and PHI shall be referred to as Personal Data.

USE of Service

NTU does not sign students up on Intellect – they sign up for an account each on their own. SSO is meant to be the process to verify that the user is indeed an NTU student since this service is meant only for NTU students. SSO (Single sign-on) is an authentication scheme that allows a user to log in with a single ID to any of several related, yet independent, software systems. True single sign-on allows the user to log in once and access services without re-entering authentication factors. NTU does not provide any Personal Data of students to Intellect. Once the user is verified as an NTU student via SSO, the user would independently provide and be onboarded with their own information (whether name, email, etc. which will be up to them). This information may include your suffix, age, gender, student ID (if applicable), school, college, and or academic course.

How We Use the Information About You

We gather this information from you to allow us to:

  • Process your registration;
  • Process your subscription;
  • Provide access to the services we offer on our platform including webinars, behavioral health coaching sessions, and users support;
  • Browse our website through your browser’s cookies;
  • Deliver through emails our special offers on services we think may be of interest to you;
  • Contact you to ask for your feedback and comment on our services;
  • Notify you on all assigned or impending tasks on our platform;

We may also provide such de-identified information to third parties including academic journals and external publications for research and analysis purposes. This may be different from our use to monitor and improve our services. These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify you.
