WHAT INFORMATION DO WE GATHER ABOUT YOU?
The information gathered when you interact with the Newsroom Nigeria falls into two categories: 1) Personal information, which includes personal information you supply when you subscribe, order, complete a survey, register for one of our sites, enter a contest or provide your email address and 2) Non-personal information collected through technology, which includes tracking information collected by us as well as third parties.
To enable payment and donations via the Newsroom Nigeria Services, we collect and store name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card information and other billing information. This information will only be shared with third parties who help to complete the purchase transaction. Examples of this include fulfilling orders and processing credit card payments.
We offer you opportunities to engage in public activities on newsroom.ng and other Newsroom Nigeria Services. “Public activities” are any actions you take on newsroom.ng that are designed to be visible to other users, including comments, recommendations, reader reviews, ratings or any other items that you submit. Any information you disclose in your public activities, along with your screen name or ID, or any image or photo, becomes public and may be used by The Newsroom Nigeria for online and offline promotional or commercial uses in any and all media. If you choose to engage in public activities, you should be aware that any personal information you submit can be read, collected and used by other users of these areas.
If you have registered for a newsroom.ng account, we will track and aggregate your public activities on newsroom.ng. By choosing to participate in public activities, you are electing to share and display such public activities via newsroom.ng. Also, public activities may be included in RSS feeds, APIs and made available to other websites via other formats. As a result, your public activities may appear on other websites, blogs, or feeds. Keep in mind that we are not responsible for any personal information you choose to make public via your public activities, and you agree that such sharing will be deemed to have been done by you, not Newsroom Nigeria.
