Privacy Policy

1.1 Basic Account Information
You don’t have to create an account to use some of our service features, such
as searching and viewing public Nightlight profiles. If you do choose to create an account, you must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you. On Nightlight
this includes a display name (for example, “Nightlight User”), a username
(for example, nightlightuser), a password, and an email address.

Your display name and username are always public, but you can use either
your real name or a pseudonym.

1.2 Public Information
Most activity on Nightlight is public, including your profile information , your posts and certain information about your posts like the date, time.

When you share audio or visual content on our service we
may analyze that data to operate our services.

The people you follow and who follow you, and
posts you Like or repost are also public. Information posted about
you by other people who use our services may also be public. For example, other
people may mention you in a post.

You are responsible for your posts and other information you provide through our
services, and you should think carefully about what you make public, especially if it
is sensitive information. If you update your public information on Nightlight, such as by
deleting a post or deactivating your account, we will reflect your updated content

By publicly posting content, you are directing us to disclose that information as
broadly as possible, including through our APIs, and directing those accessing
the information through our APIs to do the same. To facilitate the fast global
dissemination of posts to people around the world, we use technology like
application programming interfaces (APIs) and embeds to make that information
available to websites, apps, and others for their use - for example, displaying
posts on a news website or analyzing what people say on Nightlight. We generally
make this content available in limited quantities for free for large-scale access.

1.3 Contact Information and Address

We use your contact information, such as your email address,
to authenticate your account and keep it - and our services - secure, and to help
prevent spam, fraud, and abuse. Subject to your settings, we also use contact
information to enable certain account features (for example, for login verification),
to send you information about our services, and to personalize our services.
You can sign up for Nightlight with an account from another service like Github,
or Discord.
If you do, we will use information from that service, including your email address,
username, or other services for your ease of account setup.
If you email us, we will keep the content of your message, your email address, and
your contact information to respond to your request.

2. Additional information we receive about you

2.1 Cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on your computer or mobile device.
Like many websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional
website usage data and to operate our services. Cookies are not required for many
parts of our services such as searching and looking at public profiles. Although
most web browsers automatically accept cookies, many browsers’ settings can be
set to decline cookies or alert you when a website is attempting to place a cookie
on your computer. However, some of our services may not function properly if
you disable cookies. When your browser or device allows it, we use both session
cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our
services, to monitor aggregate usage patterns, and to personalize and otherwise
operate our services such as by providing account security.
We do not support the Do Not Track browser option.

3. Managing your personal information with us

3.1 Deletion
We keep your data for a maximum of 1 month.
Keep in mind that search engines and other third parties may still retain copies of
your public information, like your profile information and public posts, even after
you have deleted the information from our services or your account.

4. Children and Our Services
Our services are not directed to children, and you may not use our services if you
are under the age of 13. You must also be old enough to consent to the processing
of your personal data in your country.

5. Changes to This Privacy Policy
We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version of
the policy will govern our processing of your personal data and will always be at
terms/privacy. If we make a change to this policy that, in our sole
discretion, is material, we will notify you within, or by sending an email to the email address associated with your
account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those changes become
effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.
