GDPR and Mango Languages: What you need to know.At Mango Languages, our mission is to enrich lives with language and culture around the world and provide the best experience to all our learners. 

As we grow globally, we are committed to making improvements, upgrades, and new developments to create an enjoyable learning environment for all of our users. We value your privacy as if it were our own, which is why we would like to let you know about updates to our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions that further comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which affects users located in the European Union (EU), to effectively secure your subscription information and increase our transparency.

 

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and is a new, comprehensive data protection law that goes into effect May 25th, 2018. GDPR governs how companies around the world handle the personal data of users located in the EU. If you’re not located in the EU, the legislation doesn’t directly affect the way companies handle your data. However, we're committed to meeting our legal obligation set forth by the GDPR and protecting the minimal data that we collect from our users.

 

Not an EU Resident?

These changes will not impact you in any way, but if you are located outside of the EU and have questions about your account, click here to contact support.

Some of the changes users will notice include:

  • GDPR Request Form that gives users located in the EU easy access to submit requests for insight into their data protection rights, plus the opportunity to submit requests for actions to be taken by Mango with respect to their data.
  • Updated Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy that now include a clear and concise Data Processing Agreement addendum that defines the minimal data that we do collect and how we use it, as well as how we work with our client organizations to ensure we are supporting their users’ requests for data disclosure and protection.
  • A clear opt-in agreement that will appear when users next log in or sign up for Mango Languages through any of our learning platforms (iOS and Android apps, web-based access). This is a one-time consent agreement that they may reverse at any time by completing this form.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding these updates: dpo@mangolanguages.com.
