Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This policy applies to all information collected or submitted on the Gurbani app for iPhone and any other devices and platforms.

Information we collect

When creating an account, you will be asked to enter an optional email address and a password. Email addresses are only used for logging in, password resets, responding to emails that you initiate, and notifications that you request. We don’t send promotional emails.

You may choose not to provide an email address and have an anonymous sync account instead.

We store information about your app usage settings so that you can set your preferences only once and return to the Gurbani app with these already preloaded on the app.

Technical basics

If you enable notifications, we must store a token to send them. We never use notifications for marketing.

We use cookies on the site and similar tokens in the app to keep you logged in. Our server software also stores basic technical information, such as your IP address.

Ads and analytics

The Gurbani app collects aggregate, anonymous statistics, such as the percentage of users who use particular features, to improve the app.

Currently, Gurbani does not display ads or no personal data is used to target on any ad networks.

Information usage

We use the information we collect to operate and improve our app.

We do not share personal information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to accomplish Gurbani’s app functionality. We may share anonymous, aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as how many people open and/or use the Gurbani app on regular basis.

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.

Security

We implement a variety of security measures to help keep your information secure. For instance, all communication with the app and website requires HTTPS with certificate pinning. Passwords are hashed, not stored, using industry-standard methods (currently bcrypt).

Accessing, changing, or deleting your information

You may access or change your information or delete your account from the Gurbani iOS app.

Deleted information may be kept in backups for up to 90 days. Backups are encrypted and are only accessed if needed for disaster recovery.

Third-party links and content

The Gurbani app displays content from third-party sites. These have their own independent privacy policies, and we have no responsibility or liability for their content or activities.

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.

Information for European Union Customers

By using the Gurbani iOS app and providing your information, you authorize us to collect, use, and store your information outside of the European Union.

International Transfers of Information

Information may be processed, stored, and used outside of the country in which you are located. Data privacy laws vary across jurisdictions, and different laws may be applicable to your data depending on where it is processed, stored, or used.

Your Consent

By using our site or apps, you consent to our privacy policy.

Contacting Us

If you have questions regarding this privacy policy, you may email gurbanicenter@gmail.com. Please note that account deletion should be done within the Gurbani app, not via email requests, for security reasons.

Changes to this policy

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page. Summary of changes so far:
