Our web servers are designed to recognize every user's/visitor's IP address, and may automatically collect some information about your browser and operating system, your internet service provider (ISP), your referring and exit pages, clickstream data, as well as your date and time stamp.  This category of information is not in any way personal and does not specifically identify you. Rather, it helps PodNu to deploy our services to meet our users' needs better and to enrich their app experience.

PodNu may use your personal information for these reasons:

  • To provide the knowledge sharing service that you request;

  • To validate your identity and confirm that you are who you say you are;

  • To respond to any queries and complaints that you may have;

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES

We may make available your personal information to the under listed third parties and under these circumstances:

 

Service Providers: We use many service providers to carry out certain functions and to provide services to us in the People’s Republic of China. We may share your personal information with these service providers, subject to the confidentiality obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy, and with the strict instruction that these third parties use your private information only on our behalf and only in accordance with our instructions.

 

Marketing: We may share your personal information with certain partners for advertising and promoting relevant services as well as to keep you fully informed of certain services and special offers. 

 

To comply with the law: We may share your personal information if we have the good faith belief that it is necessary to do so in compliance with a regulation, law or legal request; if it is so needed to protect the safety of a person; to address security issues, fraud matters or technical issues; and/or to protect our rights and/or property.

 

Barring the conditions above, we will never knowingly sell, transfer, or share any of your information with a third party.

OUR USE OF COOKIES

Like most apps do, we make use of the cookies technology, as this makes it easy for our app to recognize you and your browser. It does this by capturing and remembering certain information about your browser and allows you to have an enhanced and more fulfilling personalized experience the next time you use the app.

You may opt to turn off cookies on your computer/accessing device, but may as a result of this, be unable to access many features that make our app experience more efficient.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

Our app and its content and services are meant for an adult audience and are not targeted towards minors. We will never calculatedly collect personal data from persons under the age of 18, except this is done with parental consent or as permitted by the law.

SOCIAL MEDIA INFORMATION

We may give you the choice of logging in to our services through social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Should you opt to so log in, you accept that we may obtain certain information that is required for us to enable the PodNu services to access the social network so linked to your PodNu account, as well as the data stored in that particular social network account.

We may share your personal information with the operator of your linked social network account to facilitate the delivery of that social network to you. Your linked social network may also provide us with access to some information that you have provided to them, and PodNu will use, store, and disclose such accessed information in accordance with this privacy policy.

You further agree that a social media network may collect personal information about your use of the PodNu app. You, however, accept that the way a social media network collects, stores, uses, and discloses information is fully governed by the policies of that third party and PodNu shall have no responsibility for the privacy practices as well as other actions of any social network that we may have enabled within our services.

PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURITY

We do all that we can to make sure that your personal information is safe, and we implement a variety of security measures to do this. These security measures include physical, administrative, and technical safeguards as well as the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology. Also, your personal information can only be accessed by a limited number of authorized professionals who are thereafter mandated to keep the information confidential. 
You however, understand and fully accept that there is no full assurance of data security for information available on or through the internet. We will thus not be liable for the unauthorized access to your personal information that is beyond our control.

GDPR COMPLIANT POLICY

Controlling your private information/data: You have all rights to correct and update your private information in our records if you believe that it is erroneous or if it has been deleted. You may also place limitations on how we process your information. You have all the rights to instruct PodNu not to use or process your private information/data in certain circumstances, i.e., for advertising and marketing purposes. You have all the rights to withdraw your agreement, where the processing of your private information is based on your consent. This is however, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. 

How you can access your information: We want to ensure that your information that we hold is always accurate and up to date.  Whenever there are any material changes to your private information/data, please sign in to your account (if any) and edit your profile to reflect the changes, so that we can update our records.

Storage time: You understand and accept that we will maintain the information collected from you for commercially reasonable periods or as per specific policies, unless where proscribed by law.  Contact details such as your name, phone number, and email address provided to us by you are stored in our database, and it is our policy to delete such within three months after you have notified us that you no longer wish to use our services.

CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY

PodNu may occasionally revise and review this Privacy Policy as we deem fit and will do this without prior notice to any user, including you. We will broadcast such reviews and/or revisions on the app so that you are always well-informed about the kind of information that we collect and how we use such information. Your use of our app after such changes are published shall be considered as your full and total agreement with the reviewed privacy policy.
