The confidentiality agreement, which the government had previously cited as evidence of data protection guarantees, states in a section marked “confidentiality” that a relevant part of the agreement with Sprinklr deals with data protection. Days after the Kerala government was questioned about its links to the U.S. company Sprinklr regarding the transmission of data from people under surveillance for COVID-19, the government released documents relating to the contract. Eight documents posted on the State Government website include the order form, the service contract, Sprinklr`s declaration of confidentiality, the confidentiality agreement and two confirmation letters written on April 11 and 12. It adds that the data will be returned after the contract expires or is terminated. The order issued Wednesday indicates that the agreement from March 25 to September 24 or the end of the COVID 19 pandemic is effective, depending on the previous date. Both Am1. and 12 confirmation letters, however, there are glaring differences and a change in tone from the date. “Within thirty (30) days of the effective date of termination and on request, Sprinklr extracts the available content from the platform customer. Both parties will accept an acceptable transfer method,” the agreement states. The properties of the government website indicate that the document was drawn up on April 14 at 12 o`clock. But when the U.S. representative signed the agreement on April 2, the document was not dated with the signature of the U.S.
representative on the document. The date of the agreement shows that the document was made after opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala was accused of making the document. The document that guarantees the security of the information is suspected of being manipulated. The agreement came to light when opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala called a press conference and made accusations. The head of government Pinarayi Vijayan had avoided questions about the sprinkler at a press conference yesterday.
