Privacy Policy

Last Updated: June 9, 2021

This privacy statement describes how (known as OSM) collects, uses, and discloses personal information about you when you visit our website and the websites of our partners.

If we make any changes, we will update the date at the top of the policy for you to update.

This Privacy Policy explains how OSM collects, uses, and discloses information about you when you visit our websites and affiliate material, register an account or post material, contact our customer service team, engage with us on social media, or otherwise connect with us. These touchpoints are collectively referred to as "Services."

Gathering of information

Information About your Account:

You will need to register an OSM account if you want to use the Services, such as create or post content, comment on other people's content, or publish your own material to Partners' material, or if you want to get updates or newsletters from us or our Partners such as your First name, Last Name, email address, username. We may also ask for information such as a profile picture or your social profile information.

Your Use of the Services Information

Posting Information

We collect data on the content you upload, such as articles, comments, and interactions with the material of other users. To gather information, we (and our service providers and Partners) employ a variety of technologies, including cookies and web beacons.

For more general information on cookies, please read "What Are Cookies" on the Internet.

We gather information from a variety of sources.

Other sources of information about you may also be used. We may obtain information about you from third parties such as identity verification agencies, mailing list providers, and publically available sources, for example. Furthermore, if you create or log into your account through a social media site or third-party service (such as Facebook or Google), we will have access to certain information from that service, such as your name, email address, and profile picture, based on the authorization procedures determined by that social media site or third-party service.

Information Exchange

When you subscribe to or "follow" one of our Partners, or leave a comment or publish material on one of their pages, you are giving OSM and that Partner your username and email address. We will keep your personal information private (such as your name, email address, address, or phone number).

Others Provide advertising, Analytics, and Identity Services, And third Party links and services

Others may provide analytics services and serve adverts on our and our Partners' behalf throughout the web and in mobile applications. These businesses may collect information about your visits to websites that use our Services, Partner Content, and other websites and applications using cookies, web beacons, device identifiers, and other technologies, such as your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, and pages viewed.

The Services may include third-party plug-ins and capabilities (such as the Facebook "like" button, Twitter "follow" button, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Telegram, and Youtube), as well as links to third-party websites such as social media sites.  If you choose to use these sites or features, you may disclose your information not just to those third parties, but also to their users and the public more generally depending on how their services function. We have no control over the content or privacy policies of those websites or services. The privacy policies of third-party websites or services, not this Privacy Policy, shall govern the collection, use, and sharing of your information. We strongly advise you to review these third-party privacy and security policies.

You can choose to disable cookies through your individual browser options. To know more detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers, it can be found at the browsers' respective websites.
