Privacy Policy
Last updated : 28 / 5 / 2019

At RubenSystems we believe privacy is fundamental. As a result, we have developed Headlines Today to collect no non-essential information about our users. We have also made it as transparent as possible by creating this privacy policy that is in the most readable format possible.
By reading this, you will understand what data we collect and why we collect it.

This document is only applicable if you have an account. If you do not, we do not store, process or analyse any information concerning you.

Information we collect

There are 2 basic categories of information we collect: Information we need to run the service and information we use to make your experience better. Here's a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information we need to run the service

When you sign in, you use the google sign in system. They provide us with an email and username. Your email and username is used to identify you as a user.

Information we use to make your experience better

When you subscribe to a source, we store that under your account so that you do not need to select sources every time. When you open an article, we save the category (e.g politics, technology or science) of the article so we can show you more articles like that later on.

How we share information

Only you have access to the data you provide us and it is anonymised. Each piece of data has a special key that gets randomly generated, and only you have that key. As a result, neither we or anybody else has access to your personal information.
We may use information such as how you travel through the app in order to improve our services.

Transfer of information

We're a global organization and our computers are in several different places around the world. We also use service providers whose computers may also be in various countries. This means that your information might end up on one of those computers in another country, and that country may have a different level of data protection regulation than yours. By giving us information, you consent to this kind of transfer of your information. No matter what country your information is in, we comply with applicable law and will also abide by the commitments we make in this privacy policy.

Keeping Information

We will keep your information only for as long as we need it to provide you services or as required by law.

Third-party content

When opening external links, we cannot guarantee your privacy. External sites may use tracking methods such as cookies to sell your information to advertisers. That is why we recommend using reader view to ensure your privacy.

Revisions to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. But when we do, we'll let you know one way or another. Sometimes, we'll let you know by revising the date at the top of the Privacy Policy that's available on our website and mobile application. Other times, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our websites' home pages or providing you with an in-app notification).
