Privacy Policy

This page is used to inform users regarding our policies for the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information.

Recomedia is a web app supported by a mobile and web application development platform, Firebase. The Google owned platform provides different services and products from which Google Analytics, Authentication, Cloud Database, and Hosting are used by Recomedia. This website is expected to run ads from Google AdSense in case it is approved in the future. However, the service is provided at no cost and is intended for use as is. The website allows users to recommend albums, anime, books, movies, songs, tv shows and youtubers to each other. The voting system allows you to let others know which recommendations you liked and which you disliked. Moreover, whoever recommends the media has the option to provide the link to his Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account in case others decide to follow him/her on those platforms. The link will be used to identify the user as the recommender.

If you choose to use the website, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation to this policy. The personal information the website collects is used for providing and improving the service. The site will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy and the third-party services' Privacy Policy.

Information Collection and Use

We will ask for your username, email, and a link to your account on a third-party social media platform like Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Because you will sign in with Google, Recommedia will use your email and username. No password will be needed. The email will be necessary to identify you when logging in. The username is used to let you know that you are logged in. You may refuse to provide the link to a third-party social media. It is only for those who would like to get in contact with other users who may have similar interests.

The app does use third party services, Google and Firebase, that will collect information used to identify you and define your experience as the user. Link to privacy policy of third-party service providers used by the app:
