We provide further details about how we use this data below.
MOBILE DEVICE INFORMATION:
The CHANI App automatically consults and may transmit your unique device identifier or other information about your mobile device for the purposes of:
- Establishing and managing your subscription payments
- Supporting app analytics services
In each case, we strive to use information about your device only where necessary or desirable to deliver the CHANI App to you and optimize your experience using the CHANI App.
APP ANALYTICS TRACKING:
Our website uses Google Analytics tracking to measure traffic data. We also use a third party analytics tool to aggregate and organize usage analytics data, which receives app usage data via an Application Programming Interface and stores this data on servers controlled by the analytics provider, Segment. You can learn more about this technology and the specific functionality it offers here: https://segment.com/industry/mobile/.
We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the App – you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Data here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
You will be added to our email list automatically when you access our CHANI App.
Our newsletters and other announcements are sent through a third party email service, which may use web beacons to track your interactions with our email – for example, whether an email is opened or clicked. We have access to this tracking information.
You can opt-out of our email newsletters and other correspondence, or change your email notification preferences, anytime by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the footer of our emails.
HOW WE TRANSMIT AND STORE YOUR DATA:
When you utilize the CHANI App, your Birth Chart Info is sent to a 3rd party API to receive a customized response, but not stored in any database or server. The data received in response to this API call (“API Data”) is stored locally on your device to generate the CHANI App content. If you choose to revise your information, including without limitation birth date and time, the CHANI App will send the updated information to the same APi endpoint in order to obtain updated content for the App.
Based on the birth chart information that we populate based on the API Data, we send a request to a content management system to choose the content regarding your chart, transits, and other astrological markers to display within the App.
The email address you use to log in will be stored: (1) in our encrypted user database to enable your continued access to the app [across devices] and (2) in/on our Mailchimp list (alongside any unsubscribe request to keep you opted-out if you choose to opt-out).
We maintain records of all CHANI App subscribers, past and present, indefinitely in order to optimize our business operations.
Usage information about the App is stored on third party servers owned and controlled by Segment, but this data does not include personal data about you other than your device itself..
Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to – and maintained on – computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of your jurisdiction.
