The privacy of users of http://www.bloggers.ng is genuinely important to us.
About this Policy
bloggers.ng is an open platform that allows you to get listed in our online directory. We collect some information in order for you to have an account you can use to participate on the site, and other information that is necessary to make the service work.
We do take efforts to make sure the platform keeps working. This includes using your information, where necessary, to stop spam and gaming and other activities that violate the user agreement.
What Information We Collect
Registration Information and Log Files
When you create an account, you are required to provide a username and password etc. As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer, Safari or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Post, Comment and Messaging Data
The posts and comments you make on bloggers.ng are not private. This means that, by default, they are readily accessible to the public. So, ensure you post only what you would like the public to see.
Once we enable the “messaging” feature, your messages will only be viewable by the parties involved, but they may be accessed internally as needed for community support.
Other Information Related to Your Account
When you are logged into your bloggers.ng account, we save the other information about your preferences and your interactions with the site to allow you to customize your experience. Any info you add, to decorate your profile will be stored as well.
How We Use or Disclose Collected Information
Our Use of Your Information Is Limited to Improving Your Experience.
It takes a lot of work to keep our site running and prevent abuse, and we sometimes use your data in order to facilitate this. Your information is used internally only where necessary to provide our services. For instance, IP addresses can be used to investigate issues with our site, track and block suspected spammers, and otherwise maintain the integrity of the community.
Your Private Information Is Never for Sale.
Your Information May Be Disclosed By Us In An Emergency or to Keep our Services Running.
We may disclose your information in certain emergency circumstances: we may also disclose your information when we believe it’s necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person; to address fraud, security, or spam; or to protect our rights or property.
Cookies are small data files placed on your computer by websites you visit in order to help them remember certain information about you. At bloggers.ng, we set only a few cookies for tracking user preferences, authentication, and collecting anonymous analytics data.
Additionally, our advertising partners might set cookies. This site has no access to, or control of advertisers’ cookies.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
You may choose to delete your bloggers.ng account at any time.
However, the posts and content you made during your tenure as a bloggers.ng user will not be automatically deleted as part of the account removal process, though your username will be publicly disassociated with all posts. Also, we do not have control over third parties that may collect and store data independently from bloggers.ng without our permission and without following our rules.
When you sign up on bloggers.ng, contact bloggers.ng support or subscribe to one of our email newsletters, bloggers.ng may use a third party service to send you email messages and this means your contact info will be stored with the third party service. We will however make it easy to opt out of our subscription emails, for example, by including a 1-click unsubscribe link.
bloggers.ng will make every effort to secure any private information submitted to us by our users. We also maintain internal security practices designed to keep your data secure and private. As part of this, we limit team members access to user data.
However, no data transmission over the internet is completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of this data. You use the service at your own risk, and are responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account (such as carefully maintaining the secrecy of your password).
bloggers.ng may also allow you to post to social media, including Facebook or Twitter, but bloggers.ng will not post on your behalf. We want to make it easier for you to share your favorite bloggers.ng content elsewhere, but we want you to control when and how that occurs.
