Information we collect
New Khabin accounts are created anonymously, without email addresses or passwords.
We store information about your reading listening progress to sync this information between the website and your devices. We also collect anonymous statistics about which articles are most popular to help inform our recommendation engine.
Khabin stores some of your data in Apple’s iCloud service to enable some sync features between all devices signed into your Apple ID.
Ads and analytics
Khabin’s app collects aggregate, anonymous statistics, such as the percentage of users who use particular features, to improve the app.
No personal data is used to target Khabin’s ads except the categories of articles that you read, such as “Technology” or “Business”. Each ad collects, and shares with its advertiser, only three numbers: total views and taps.
We use the information we collect to operate and improve our website, apps, and customer support.
We do not share personal information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to accomplish Khabin’s functionality. We may share anonymous, aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as how many people listen to a particular podcast with Khabin.
We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal requirements; to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud or abuse, violations of our policies; or to protect our rights and property.
In the future, we may sell to, buy, merge with, or partner with other businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
We comply with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
We never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
