Or, for example, by monitoring and analyzing how users interact with our Services so we can create new features that we think our users will enjoy and that will help them to learn and read more easily, as well as making predictions about user retention.

For example, by detecting security incidents; detecting and protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; fighting spam; complying with our legal obligations. To fix problems with our Services. For example, by monitoring, debugging, repairing, and preventing issues. This means we collect information about the actions that site administrators and users perform on a site.

For example, you give us permission to access the photographs on your mobile device’s camera roll to convert photos to text documents.
Legal Basis for Collecting and Using Information
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:
(1) The use is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments to you under the applicable terms of service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your account — for example, in order to enable access to our website on your device or charge you for a paid plan; or
(2) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
(3) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or
(4) We have a legitimate interest in using your information — for example, to provide and update our Services; to improve our Services so that we can offer you an even better user experience; to safeguard our Services; to communicate with you; to measure; to monitor and prevent any problems with our Services; and to personalize your experience; or
Your personal data will be processed in accordance with the terms and provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation- Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and the Council of 27 April 2016 (GDPR).
- We share information about you in limited circumstances, and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy.
- Third-party vendors: We may share information about you with third-party vendors who need the information in order to provide their services to us. This includes vendors that help us provide our Services to you (like payment providers that process your credit and debit card information, payment providers you use for your own ecommerce operations, fraud prevention services that allow us to analyze fraudulent payment transactions, cloud storage services, postal and email delivery services that help us stay in touch with you).
- Aggregated or de-identified information: We may share information that has been aggregated or de-identified, so that it can no longer reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our Services.

In some of those countries, the privacy and data protection laws and rules on when the data may be accessed may differ from those in the country where you live. As such, we ensure an adequate level of protection for the rights of the data subjects based on adequacy of the receiving country’s data protection laws, contractual obligations placed on the recipient of the data or other legal bases to lawfully transfer personal data around the world, the EU-US Privacy Shield or EU Commission approved model contractual clauses.
How Long We Keep Information
- We generally discard information about you when it is no longer needed for the purposes for which we collect and use it and we’re not legally required to keep it.
- Your personal data will be anonymised or deleted if your last interaction with our Services was over 5 years ago.
- While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so.

- Limit the information that you provide: If you have an account with us, you can choose not to provide the optional account information or profile information.

Please keep in mind that we may continue to retain your information after closing your account, as described in How Long We Keep Information above — for example, when that information is reasonably needed to comply with (or demonstrate our compliance with) legal obligations such as law enforcement requests, or reasonably needed for our legitimate business interests.
If you are located in certain parts of the world, including California and countries that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (aka the “GDPR”), you may have certain rights regarding your personal information, like the right to request access to or deletion of your data.
European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
If you are located in a country that falls under the scope of the GDPR, data protection laws give you certain rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:
- Request access to your personal data, as well as to the purposes of the processing, the category of the data, the recipients, the intended storage period and the existence or otherwise of automated decisions, including the definition of profiles;
- Request correction or deletion of your personal data, if they are inaccurate or incomplete;
- Object to our use and processing of your personal data, whenever it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was processed, whenever consent is withdrawn when this is the only legal basis for the processing, whenever you object to the processing in cases where it is done for the purposes of direct marketing, or whenever your data have been processed unlawfully;
- Request that we limit our use and processing of your personal data, whenever you contest the accuracy of your personal data and during the period of time in which we verify the accuracy of such data, whenever the processing is illicit and in the circumstance that you have opposed the erasure of the data, wanting only the limitation of its use, or whenever your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed, but are nevertheless required by you for the purpose of declaration, exercise or defense of a right in a legal proceeding;
- Request portability of your personal data, which means that you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you and that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and automatically readable format, and also the right to pass on such data to another controller;
- You also have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.
If you are a California resident, you have additional rights under the CCPA, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the right to:
- Request to know the categories of personal information we collect, the categories of sources from which the information came, the categories of third parties we share it with, and the specific pieces of information we collect about you;
- Request deletion of personal information we collect or maintain;
- Opt-out of any sale of personal information; and
- Not receive discriminatory treatment for exercising your rights under the CCPA.
When you contact us about one of your rights under this section, we’ll need to verify that you are the right person before we disclose or delete anything. For example, if you are a user, we will need you to contact us from the email address associated with your account. You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf by giving us written authorization. We may still require you to verify your identity with us.
You should note that in certain cases (e.g. due to legal requirements), your request may not be fulfilled immediately. In any case, you will be informed without delay about the reasons why we did not comply with your request.
Children’s Personal Data
Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. The Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children in the United States of America who are under 13.
According to article 8 of GDPR, where the child is below the age of 16 years, such processing shall be lawful only if and to the extent that consent is given or authorised by the holder of parental responsibility for the child.
Omuguru fully respects the role of parents or guardians in the monitoring of their children’s online activities. Accordingly, Omuguru limits its collection of personal information from children to no more than is reasonably necessary to participate in the Services and to improve it going forward. Omuguru does not collect any Personal Data from children other than as set out in the Agreement, and we reserve the right to refuse to Process data supplied by the Customer that is in violation of this clause. This Clause applies only if the contracting Party to the Agreement is Exponea with its registered seat in the United States of America.
The Right to Object
If you consider that, in the course of processing your personal data, we committed any violation of the European Regulation on data protection and privacy, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, you can file a complaint with your Personal Data Protection Agency.
The information in our Privacy and Data Protection Policy can be updated at any time, so we recommend that you consult this page regularly. Whenever our Privacy and Data Protection Policy changes, you will be informed when you visit our website.
