Naijastories may obtain IP addresses from users either at registration or on individual visits. We will use this information to monitor and prevent fraud, and diagnose problems.

We do not guarantee the security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site. So, in addition to our efforts, we encourage our users to use unique passwords and to make sure that they are the only users of their sign-in.

How we use data

We collect aggregate information on site registrations, what pages our members access or visit, and information you volunteer, such as survey and/or poll information.

The information we collect is used…

to improve the content of our site

to notify users about updates to our site
When legally required to do so, we will disclose user information at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation.

Personal Information

We will not share any personal details of members including your email. Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose in the areas of the site like posts and Forums becomes publicly available and can be used by other users. Please exercise caution before disclosing your personal information anywhere on the internet.

While we’re doing our best to ensure that fraudulent elements are kept away from the site, you may also sometimes receive private messages from such members. Please alert admin immediately if you feel this may be the case.
