This policy describes how we handle your data when you use “PubNinja Services,” listed below:
How we handle information about you depends on which PubNinja Services you use — and how you use them. We use different information from different platform accesses.
The information we gather about you depends on the context. By and large, it’s information about you that can personally identify you — either on its own or when combined with other information.
The following describes the information we collect and how we obtain it.
A) Information Collected Through PubNinja Services:
B) Information Collected from Other Sources:
Marketing, data analytic and social media-owned databases give us access to a range of information — like public data, survey data and beyond. This data sometimes includes your mailing address, your gender, your age, your household income and other demographic data.
(Social media platforms include Facebook. Third-party services include Google.)
You can link your social media or other third-party account to a PubNinja Service. By linking the services, you authorize us to collect, store and use any information they may give us (e.g., your email address). You can disconnect PubNinja.com registration from third-party accounts at any time.
We also receive information from you when you interact with our pages, groups, accounts or posts on social media platforms. This includes aggregate data on our followers (e.g., age, gender and location), engagement data (e.g., “likes,” comments, shares, reposts and clicks), awareness data (e.g., number of impressions and reach) and individual users’ public profiles.
A note about future updates:
We are always improving our products and services, and we create new features regularly. These updates sometimes require us to collect new information, or use what we already have differently. If there is a significant or material change in the way we handle your personal information, we will notify you as detailed below.
A) We provide PubNinja Services
We use your information to help you use and navigate PubNinja Services, such as:
B) We Personalize Your Experience
We track your interests and reading habits (e.g., the articles you read) to personalize your reading experience using technology like algorithmic recommendations and machine learning. This is how we highlight articles you might be interested in and de-emphasize articles you’ve already read. We also show you prices, promotions, products or services we believe you’ll find interesting, based on demographic and usage data.
C) We Allow You to Share User-Generated Content.
Any information you disclose in your content becomes public — along with your chosen screen name and uploaded photo.
D) We Develop Products and Services, and Do Analysis.
We analyze data on our users’ usage behaviors. This helps us make business and marketing decisions.
For example, our analysis lets us predict preferences and price points for our products and services. It helps us determine whether our marketing is successful. It also shows us characteristics about our readers, which we sometimes share in aggregate with advertisers.
E) We Carry Out Administrative Tasks.
The above activities can involve outside companies, agents or contractors (“service providers”) with whom we share your personal information for these purposes (discussed further below).
F) We Offer Sweepstakes, Contests and Other Promotions.
You can take part in our sweepstakes, contests and other promotions. Some might have additional rules about how we use and disclose your personal information.
G) We Allow for Personalized Advertising on Our Services.
We gather data and work with third parties to show you personalized ads. This data comes from ad tracking technologies (e.g., cookies), the information you provide (e.g., your email address), data collected as you use PubNinja Services (e.g., your reading history), data from advertisers or advertising vendors (e.g., demographic data) and anything inferred from any of this information. We only use or share this information in a manner that does not reveal your identity.
H) We Advertise PubNinja Services to You.
We market our properties to you. Sometimes we use marketing vendors to do this.
We serve ads through websites, locations, platforms and services operated and owned by third parties. Often these ads are targeted at people who have visited or registered for our Service but have not subscribed or purchased anything. The ads are also targeted at people with similar traits or behaviors to our subscribers or customers.
We target our advertising to these users by uploading an encrypted customer list to a third party, or by incorporating a tracking technology from a third party onto our Service. The third party then matches individuals who appear in both our data and their data. Because of how this matching process works, the third party can’t read our encrypted customer list if they don’t already have it.
To opt out of receiving these matched ads, contact the applicable third parties. For example, when we use “Custom Audience” to serve you our ad through Facebook, you should be able to hover over the box in the right corner of that Facebook ad and opt out. We are not responsible for any third party’s failure to comply with opt-out requests.
We periodically may send you targeted email newsletters or promotional emails. For information on opting out of these emails, see “What Are Your Rights?”
I) We Aggregate (or De-identify) Personal Information Into Larger Findings.
Sometimes we aggregate or de-identify information so that it can no longer identify you, under applicable laws. This helps us better understand and represent our users, such as when we measure ad performance or compile survey results. We can use and disclose this aggregated or de-identified information for any purpose, unless an applicable law says otherwise.
A) Within The Company:
We share your information with our affiliates for the purposes listed here.
B) With Service Providers:
We work with service providers, to carry out certain tasks:
When performing these tasks, service providers often have access to your personal information.
We sometimes allow them to use aggregated or de-identified information for other purposes, in accordance with applicable laws.
C) With Other Third Parties:
There are situations when we share your information with third parties beyond our service providers. We never share your email address with these third parties without your consent, except in encrypted form to engage in the matched ads process described above.
A) How Do I Opt Out of Email, Phone, Mail and Push Notifications?
The opt-out methods described below are limited to the email address, phone or device used. They won’t affect subsequent subscriptions.
We complete any opt-out request as quickly as we can. This opt-out request won’t prohibit us from sending you important nonmarketing notices.
B) How Do You Access, Change, Delete or Update Your Personal Information?
In some parts of the world, you have the right to:
If you’d like to exercise any of the above rights, contact us via [email protected] email or by writing to us us at: Eleven Internet Services, 1608, 7th Cross, Opp BMTC Bus Depot, Agara Village, 1st Sector, HSR Layout, Bengaluru 560102, Karnataka, India. In your request, please be specific. State the information you want changed, whether you’d like your information suppressed from our database or whether there are limitations you’d like us to put on how we use your personal information. Please use the email address linked to that personal information — we only complete requests on the information linked to your email address. To verify your identity, we will email the email address you provide us, and which matches our records, and wait for your response. In some instances we may also ask for additional information. This is how we verify your identity before complying.
You can designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. In order to do that, please provide us a notarized power of attorney. We’ll respond to your request in a manner consistent with applicable law.
We might need to keep certain information for recordkeeping purposes, or to complete a transaction you began prior to requesting a change or deletion (e.g., if you make a purchase or enter a promotion, you might not be able to change or delete the personal information provided until after the completion of the purchase or promotion).
In some cases, your request doesn’t ensure complete removal of the content or information (e.g., if another user has reposted your content).
If you’d like, you can lodge a complaint with a data protection authority. A list of E.U. data protection authorities is available.
C) How Do You Manage Your Digital Accounts?
It works differently if you subscribed via Apple’s App Store or Google Play. Register with us to access the Account area, and contact Apple or Google for your transaction history.
D) What Are Your California Shine the Light Privacy Rights?
Under the California “Shine the Light” law, California residents can opt out of our sharing of their information to third parties (and sometimes affiliates) for their direct marketing purposes.
To do so, email us at [email protected] with “Shine the Light Opt Out” in the subject line, and your account number and phone number in the body of the email. You can also write to us at: Eleven Internet Services, 1608, 7th Cross, Opp BMTC Bus Depot, Agara Village, 1st Sector, HSR Layout, Bengaluru 560102, Karnataka, India with subject “Shine the Light Opt Out”.

We generally don’t want to gather any sensitive information about you. This includes:
There are rare situations when we request this information (e.g., a reader survey asks about your political leanings), but you can decline to answer. Outside those situations we would prefer you never share that information with us.
It varies. We store your personal information for as long as needed, or permitted, based on the reason why we obtained it (consistent with applicable law). This means we might retain your personal information even after you close your account with us.
When deciding how long to keep your information, we consider:
Rather than delete your data, we might de-identify it by removing personally identifying details.
We protect your personal information with a series of organizational, technological and physical safeguards — but we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We recommend that you use complex and unique passwords for your accounts and for third-party accounts linked to them. Do not share your password with anyone. We never ask for your password to access your account.
If you have reason to believe your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us immediately.
Our Services are intended for a general audience, and are not directed at children under (13) years of age. We do not encourage children below 13 years of age to use our services.
We do not knowingly gather personal information (as defined by the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act, or COPPA or GDPR) in a manner not permitted by COPPA or GDPR. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe we have collected information from your child in a manner not permitted by law, contact us at [email protected]. We will remove the data to the extent required by applicable laws.
