By reading this, you will understand what data we collect and why we collect it.
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 will keep your information only for as long as we need it to provide you services or as required by law.
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.
