aKoma Media takes privacy seriously. We respect your right to it. We’re not going to mess around with personal info. So for our content creators, inside and outside the African continent, we want to be as transparent as possible.
Collecting your data
If you use our site, akomanet.com, here’s what data we get:
- We collect info on what pages you visit and what browsers you’re using
- We will learn what device you’re using
- When you sign up we get your email address and your social handles
If you’re reading or creating on aKoma we capture your IP address. Why? This helps us fight abuse, and those guys that break the aKoma code of conduct. It also lets us personalize the aKoma experience which is a key goal of ours. Your IP address will also help us improve our product because we will be able to tell what people like or don’t like, and how the platform is used.
Sometimes we’ll send admin emails to keep you in the loop on new or changing policies.
You’ll never get an email from us asking what your password is, so watch out if you get that because it’s not from aKoma. Tell us about it ASAP so we can check it out.
Your personal information
We won’t share it outside aKoma
We won’t sell it
If we do share it with a third party, these are the criteria:
- we must have your consent
- the third party meets our data protection standards
- required by law or legal process. You will get a heads up if there are any legal processes so you can challenge them, as long as a court allows us.
We use this technology so we can recognize you when you come back. Stuff like logging you back in automatically, and remembering things you like. This also helps us personalize information for you.
If you don’t want this, then go to ‘Do Not Track’ (DNT) settings in your browser. If you turn it on, we won’t set cookies.
Third parties like Amazon hosts our data for hardware, software and all tech stuff we need to run aKoma.
We keep logs - server logs and event logs via our hosts.
You can access or change your personal info on aKoma anytime you want.
You can delete your account any time you want.
If you delete your account, the content may not be recoverable.
To protect information from accidental or malicious deleting, it may still exist on our servers or back up systems and we may not remove it.
We use HTTPS/TLS encryption to protect data coming in and out of our site.
No data on the internet is 100% secure so aKoma can’t guarantee security. You’re on
Our platform at your own risk and you need to take actions to secure your own account, for instance having a strong password.
As we develop the platform we will likely update our policy. If there’s anything major, we’ll let you know immediately. We’ll keep the latest one up on the aKoma site always.
If you want to clarify or give us feedback on any of this, email us at email@example.com
