DP IELTS Privacy Principles

Our Privacy Policy is fueled by our commitment to these Privacy Principles:

  1. We’re deeply committed to creating a safe and secure online environment for you.
  2. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. We established DP IELTS as a nonprofit organization so that our mission of education and your trust will not be in conflict with a for-profit motive.
  3. We strive to provide you with access to and control over the information you give us, and we take the protection of your information very seriously.
  4. We take extra precautions for our younger learners.
  5. We do not display advertising on DP IELTS. Our mission is to provide you with a world class education, not to sell you products.


Dhammika and Priscilla Perera Foundation (“DP IELTS”, “our”, “us”, or “we”) is a Sri Lankan-based charitable nonprofit organization. As a nonprofit, we use the information we collect to provide you with a better experience and fulfill our mission of providing a free, world- class education for anyone, anywhere. We established ourselves as a nonprofit organization so that a for-profit motive will not interfere with our mission of providing a trusted educational resource.

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We understand how important privacy is to you, and we are committed to protecting your privacy and to creating a safe and secure environment for learners of all ages. This Privacy Policy explains how information is collected, used, shared, and protected by DP IELTS when you use (or access) our website at, our mobile application, and online service (collectively, our “Service”).

DP IELTS takes great care to protect the personal information you provide to us. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. This section explains circumstances in which we may share personal information with third parties.

  • with other users that are associated with your account, such as a parent, teacher or coach.

Sponsorship and Advertising

DP IELTS does not display third party advertisements on our Service. We may, from time to time, incorporate content or link to content provided by third parties that may be of interest to you and relevant to the educational context of our Service. Some of these materials or websites may include branding or advertisements as permitted by the third party owner or operator. For more information, please review Links to third parties.

Please note that we use our best efforts and take multiple steps to avoid the collection of information for targeted advertising purposes when we believe the Service is being used by Students or Children.

  • For example, we take steps to inhibit third party advertising networks from collecting information for targeted advertising purposes on webpages with child-directed content or when a Student or Child User uses the Service.
  • DP IELTS uses the available privacy functionality in YouTube to display video content on YouTube.

Links to Third Parties

The Service may link to and may be linked by websites operated by other entities or individuals. If we include links to third parties and you click on that link, you will be leaving DP IELTS and the privacy policy of that third party applies. Similarly, if you see a link to DP IELTS on a third party website, then the privacy policy of that third party applies.
