Another way via which we gather our users’ information is the mobile interface. To provide you information-on-the-go, we have developed a mobile news application for our platform. Users can easily download it from the play store and start reading the news right on their mobile phone screen. However, during the course of the action, the user needs to submit some basic details like email address, password and contact details.
Furthermore, our mobile application may also gather your location details without being asked as it is an automatic operation carried out to provide area-wise important information.
We may have a Facebook/Instagram login process via which we might gain access to your profile picture, photos, status, and comments. However, you can totally avoid this by choosing email-based login option.
