things like which essays and information which you prefer to read.
We collect information in the following ways:

we will ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card to store with your account. If you want to take full advantage of
the sharing features we offer, we might also ask you to create a publicly visible Praxis Digital Profile, which may include your name and photo.

them, like which content or information which you frequently read. This

mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
Cookies and similar technologies
We and our partners use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a Praxis Digital

Information we collect when you are signed in to Praxis Digital, in
addition to information we obtain about you from partners, may be associated

about how you can access, manage or delete information that is associated with
your Praxis Digital Account, visit the Transparency
and choice section of this policy.
How we use information we collect
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Praxis Digital and our users. We also use this information to offer you
tailored content – like giving you more relevant contents.
We may use the name you provide for your Praxis Digital Profile across all of the services we offer that require a Praxis Digital Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your Praxis Digital Account
so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Praxis Digital Profile information, such as your name and photo.
If you have a Praxis Digital Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on Praxis Digital or on third-party applications connected to your Praxis Digital Account in our services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the
choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your Praxis Digital Account.
When you contact Praxis Digital, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.
Our systems analyze your content to provide you personally relevant product features.
We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other Praxis Digital services – for example to make it easier to share things with people you know. Depending on your account settings your activity
on other sites and apps may be associated with your personal information in order to improve Praxis Digital’s services and the ads delivered by Praxis Digital.
We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose
Praxis Digital processes personal information on our servers in many

server located outside the country where you live.
Transparency and choice
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
Review and update your Praxis Digital activity controls to decide what types of data you would like saved with your account when you use Praxis Digital services. You can also visit these controls to manage whether certain activity is stored in a cookie or similar technology on your device when you use our services while signed-out of your account.
Review and control certain types of information tied to your Praxis Digital Account by using Praxis Digital Dashboard.
Your preferences about the Praxis Digital shown to you on Praxis Digital and across the web, such as which categories might interest you.
Adjust how the Profile associated with your Praxis Digital Account appears to others.

Take information associated with your Praxis Digital Account out of many of our services.
Choose whether your Profile name and Profile photo appear in shared endorsements that appear in website.

Information you share
Many of our services let you share information with others, such as
publishing your essays.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep
that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information
residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our
services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

1) With your consent
2) We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Praxis Digital when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the
sharing of any.
3) For external processing
5) For legal reasons
6) We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Praxis Digital if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or
disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
- meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request
- enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
- detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
- protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Praxis Digital, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
If Praxis Digital is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or
We work hard to protect Praxis Digital and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

2) We review our information collection, storage and processing
practices, including physical security measures, to guard against
unauthorized access to systems.
3) We restrict access to personal information to Praxis Digital
employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in
order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual
confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they
fail to meet these obligations.

Compliance and cooperation with regulatory authorities
adhere to several self regulatory frameworks. When we receive formal
written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow
up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data
protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of
personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.
