Privacy and transparency are important to Astacraft Tech Private Limited (“Astacraft”, “We”). We have done our best to put users in control of their data. Please read this privacy policy (“this policy”) carefully. It applies to the nepa.ly mobile app, nepa.ly website/web application and any of our products/services where the link to this document has been provided (“Services”, “nepa.ly”). This privacy policy does not apply to personal information Astacraft collects from its employees and contractors. By accessing our services, you confirm that you have read, understand and acknowledge the terms of this privacy policy. This privacy policy is not a contract and does not create any legal rights or obligations.

Information We Collect

The information you provide us and feed into our system belongs to you and only to you. Only you own the rights to the information you put in our services. By posting your information, you permit us to use your content to do what we reasonably believe necessary to provide our service both now and in the future including storing, displaying, reproducing and distributing your content as per this policy.

When you use our services skipping the sign-in and registration through our mobile app, we register you as a guest user and provide an identifier to your device so that we can recognize you in the future. You will be able to use our services until the identifier is valid. Additionally, we store the topic of interest you have selected before using our services as a guest user.

When you sign in/register to use our services, you give us your full name (or alias), email address ( or phone number) provided by you with your consent. If you sign in/register via social login providers (Facebook, Google, Twitter), we may store links to your picture provided by these providers. We may receive and store information like email, phone number, date of birth, age, gender from social login providers. Email address and phone numbers will be used as a username and you will create a password to access your account. When you update your information or content, old information may be removed and replaced by new ones. We also collect information when you submit a comment, like and save an article.

How We Collect Information

We collect personal information directly from the devices you use to access and interact with our services. We also get information from third parties like social login providers.

How We Use Your Information

We use your information only to contact you, notify you about updates, for the purpose of user experience and to show the content that might be close to your interests. We may use your topics of interest, age, gender and content you have liked or commented on to show you contents that might be close to your interests. Your full name (or alias) and profile picture will be used to show on your profile and to identify you with your comments. We may use your email to send you marketing materials. We may send verification codes or links on both your email address and phone number to identify you or recover your User Account. We do not disclose your personal information except the full name (or alias) and profile picture to third parties. We do not sell your data. But, if we collaborate with a third party to provide our services together or to enhance the usability and user experience of our services, we might share our data with those specific parties. We may analyze your data and access pattern or our services to show content as close to your interest as possible and create a customized user experience for you. We may use your information for general research and collect statistical data of users of nepa.ly and those research and statistical analysis will not be subjected or targeted to a single user. We may show you promoted content based on your interest and app usage pattern. But, the ads shown using Google ad services like ad sense and ad mob do not use data of the users of nepa.ly and we do not share data with Google ad services or other third-party ad providers.
