There are many different ways that you can use our services – to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating a Nuri-coummunication Account, we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant search results and ads, to help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
- What information we collect and why we collect it.
- How we use that information.
- The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
Your privacy matters to Nuri-coummunication, so whether you are new to Nuri-coummunication or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions, contact us.
Information that we collect
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most
Nuri-coummunication may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your Nuri-coummunication Account.
When you use Nuri-coummunication services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS and other sensors that may, for example, provide Nuri-coummunication with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and mobile towers.
◦Unique application numbers
Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to Nuri-coummunication when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
◦Cookies and similar technologies
We and our partners use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a Nuri-coummunication service, and this may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device. We also use these technologies to collect and store information when you interact with services we offer to our partners, such as advertising services or Nuri-coummunication features that may appear on other sites. Our Nuri-coummunication Analytics product helps businesses and site owners analyse the traffic to their websites and apps. When used in conjunction with our advertising services, such as those using the DoubleClick cookie, Nuri-coummunication Analytics information is linked, by the Nuri-coummunication Analytics customer or by Nuri-coummunication, using Nuri-coummunication technology, with information about visits to multiple sites.
Information we collect when you are signed in to Nuri-coummunication, in addition to information we obtain about you from partners, may be associated with your Nuri-coummunication Account. When information is associated with your Nuri-coummunication Account, we treat it as personal information. For more information about how you can access, manage or delete information that is associated with your Nuri-coummunication Account, visit the Transparency and choice section of this policy.
How we use information that we collect
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones and to protect Nuri-coummunication and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and ads.
We may use the name that you provide for your Nuri-coummunication Profile across all of the services we offer that require a Nuri-coummunication Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your Nuri-coummunication Account, so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Nuri-coummunication Profile information, such as your name and photo.
If you have a Nuri-coummunication Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on Nuri-coummunication or on third-party applications connected to your Nuri-coummunication Account (such as +1’s, reviews you write and comments you post) in our services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your Nuri-coummunication Account.
When you contact Nuri-coummunication, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. One of the products we use to do this on our own services is Nuri-coummunication Analytics. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you tailored ads, we will not associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health.
Our automated systems analyse your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customised search results, tailored advertising and spam and malware detection.
We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other Nuri-coummunication services – for example, to make it easier to share things with people you know. Depending on your account settings, your activity on other sites and apps may be associated with your personal information in order to improve Nuri-coummunication’s services and the ads delivered by Nuri-coummunication.
Nuri-coummunication processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
Transparency and choice
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
- Review and update your Nuri-coummunication activity controls to decide what types of data, such as videos that you’ve watched on YouTube or past searches, you would like saved with your account when you use Nuri-coummunication services. You can also visit these controls to manage whether certain activity is stored in a cookie or similar technology on your device when you use our services while signed out of your account.
- Review and control certain types of information tied to your Nuri-coummunication Account by using Nuri-coummunication Dashboard.
- View and edit your preferences about the Nuri-coummunication ads shown to you on Nuri-coummunication and across the web, such as which categories might interest you, using Ads Settings. You can also visit that page to opt out of certain Nuri-coummunication advertising services.
- Adjust how the Profile associated with your Nuri-coummunication Account appears to others.
- Control who you share information with through your Nuri-coummunication Account.
- Take information associated with your Nuri-coummunication Account out of many of our services.
- Choose whether your Profile name and Profile photo appear in shared endorsements that appear in ads.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Information that you share
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, including Nuri-coummunication. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so free of charge, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Information that we share
We do not share personal information with companies, organisations and individuals outside of Nuri-coummunication unless one of the following circumstances applies:
- With your consent
We will share personal information with companies, organisations or individuals outside Nuri-coummunication when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
- With domain administrators
If your Nuri-coummunication Account is managed for you by a domain administrator (for example, for G Suite users) then your domain administrator and resellers who provide user support to your organisation will have access to your Nuri-coummunication Account information (including your email and other data). Your domain administrator may be able to:
◦view statistics regarding your account, such as statistics regarding applications that you install.
◦change your account password.
◦suspend or terminate your account access.
◦access or retain information stored as part of your account.
◦receive your account information in order to satisfy applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
◦restrict your ability to delete or edit information or privacy settings.
- For external processing
- For legal reasons
We will share personal information with companies, organisations or individuals outside Nuri-coummunication if we have a belief in good faith that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
◦meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
◦enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
◦detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
◦protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Nuri-coummunication, our users or the public, as required or permitted by law.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
We work hard to protect Nuri-coummunication and our users from unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of information that we hold. In particular:
- We encrypt many of our services using SSL.
- We offer you two-step verification when you access your Nuri-coummunication Account and a Safe Browsing feature in Nuri-coummunication Chrome.
- We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorised access to systems.
- We restrict access to personal information to Nuri-coummunication employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations. They may be disciplined or their contract terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
