The entire database is secured using industry standard security protocols. No user can access the data without appropriate permissions. Information like education, employment, etc. is visible to other registered users, but personal information like your email address and mobile number are private by default and nobody can see that information without your explicit permission.
We apologize for any errors as your profile information is retrieved from both academic records as well any information you provide (including Facebook/LinkedIn). As a result, there is always a possibility that your information is not 100% accurate. The easiest thing to do is to "Update your profile". It takes less than a minute to update your information!
Based on your association with the Institute (alumni, student, admin, etc.), you will have permissions to contact various alumni. You can also control what communication you receive so that you don’t have to see a lot of irrelevant emails.
‘Stories’ is a social feature for you to share memorable stories during your time at IISc. Any registered alumni can add his or her memorable experience in campus as a story through this feature.

Interested in forming email groups to keep in touch with alumni living in your area or from your department? Please contact the data administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
While building the database, we may sometimes have to deal with duplicate profiles. This is because information is retrieved from both academic records as well as from information you provide. We are focusing on refining the alumni database to make the user experience better. Admins have access to remove duplicate profiles or merge them with the original. Duplicate profiles will be flagged by the system and admins will be notified. The admin will then verify if the profiles are duplicate and merge the two, or remove the one with least information. Please contact the admin at email@example.com for assistance.
Sometimes, you may be using different first or last names from what you used during your time at the Institute (For example, VV Raman could now be Venkatesh Raman). The system will attempt to match duplicates based on multiple categories: batch, department, email, etc. in an attempt to avoid confusion. If any issue arises with duplicate profiles because of different names, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
In our system all user emails are masked. This means that if you wish to contact another alumnus with whom you have not interacted before, you can contact them by clicking the ‘Send email’ button on the respective person’s profile. From there, the sender and the receiver will be able to communicate from their email inboxes without revealing their actual email addresses. We respect your privacy and have shaped the system to mask the email addresses in such a way.
We encourage alumni to keep the site active and engaging by sharing their memories, photos and stories. However, the site admins reserve the right to remove any post that may not be appropriate for the purposes of the website. Please contact the admins at email@example.com if you have any concerns.
