Privacy Policy Effective: 1 April 2019

Thank you for using Lokus News App!
We wrote this Privacy Policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have.
This Policy is the legal agreement that we use to disclose the way we gather, use and manage the personal information of your customers and clients.
Because we are an Internet based company, some of the concepts below are a bit technical, but we have tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way. If you still have questions or comments, we are always there to help.
Throughout this Privacy Policy, we may use certain words or phrases, and it is important that you understand the meaning of them. The list is not all-encompassing and no definition should be considered binding to the point that it renders this Privacy Policy nonsensical:

"Function Networks" refers to the business which owns this app (Lokus News App), “Our”, “App”, “We”, “Us” or “Our Service”, depending on the context of the usage;

"Service" refers to the services that we provide through our App, including but not limited to our news reader service;

"User" refers to you and any other person who uses our Service, or App, whether they are a registered accountholder or not;

"You", “Your” refers to you, the person who is reading this Privacy Policy depending on the context of the usage.

1. What type of information is being gathered?

Log Usage Data:

When You use Lokus, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that Your device sends whenever you use the app. This log data may include Your Internet Protocol address, the details of pages You see, device type and settings, the date and time of Your use, cookie data and other traffic data.

Personal Information:

On opening our App, You may be asked to enter Your email id or register using Your Google id. We use Google to authenticate Users and associate them with a unique account. We may be given access to information in Your Google account that We would not otherwise have based on Your privacy settings at those websites. We therefore repeat our recommendation that You adjust your Google privacy settings accordingly, should You wish to limit the information made available to Us.

2. How do We use your information?

We may use the information we collect from You when You register, respond to a survey or use certain App features. Finally, this information is used strictly in line with Our business purposes and to:

  • Understand how Users use our App
  • Provide Users with useful features to enhance their experience of using the App
  • Save preferences and to improve our App in order to serve better.
  • Manage relationships with advertisers.
  • Respond to questions or comments.

Your Information is immediately deleted once You delete the App, except to the extent it is necessary to store the same under applicable laws. Further, We have implemented security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of Your information.

3. Third-party disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer Your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties.

Third-party links

Lokus may post links to third party websites on the App, which may include information that We have no control over. Whether You access third party websites through a link on Our App, or as a consequence of using Our Service, You acknowledge that You are aware that these third-party websites are not screened for privacy or security issues by Us, and You release Us from any liability for the conduct of these third-party websites.

Please be aware that this Privacy Policy, in addition to any amendments, does not create rights enforceable by third parties. Lokus bears no responsibility for the information collected or used by any third-party website. Please review the privacy policy and terms of service for each site You visit through third party links or through Our Service

Google

Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users.

We use Google AdMobs and AdSense Advertising on our app.

Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on Our site. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to Our Users based on previous visits to Our app and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt-out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google Ad and Content Network privacy policy.

We, along with third-party vendors such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to Our app.

4. Security

The security of User’s Personal Information is important to Us and We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect them. Although We make best possible efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment that is not open to the public, Users should understand that there is no such thing as complete security, and We do not guarantee that there will be no unintended disclosures of User’s Personal Information.

5. How do we make changes to this policy?

We may change this policy from time to time and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If You continue to use Lokus after those changes are in effect, You agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, We may provide a more prominent notice or get Your consent, as required by law.
