Information Collection and Use


Basic Account Information: If you choose to create a Zoruk account, you must provide us with some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, or phone number. On Zoruk, your name and username are always listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym.

Contact Information: You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable certain account features, for example, for  login verification or Zoruk via SMS. If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages to that number from us. We may use your contact information to send you information, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse. You may use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from Zoruk. You may also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. Your Discoverability privacy settings control whether others can find you on Zoruk by your email address or phone number.

Buzz, Decision, Discussion, Profile, and Other Public Information: Zoruk is primarily designed to help you share information within India. Most of the information you provide us through Zoruk is information you are asking us to make public. You may provide us with profile information such as a short biography, your location, your website, date of birth, or a picture. Additionally, your public information includes the messages you send; the metadata provided with posts, such as when you posted and  information about your account, such as creation time, language. Zoruk broadly and instantly disseminates your public information to a wide range of users. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public. We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through the Services public for as long as you do not delete it, but we generally give you settings or features, like protected post, to make the information more private if you want. For certain profile information fields we provide you with visibility settings to select who can see this information in your profile. If you provide us with profile information and you don’t see a visibility setting, that information is public.

Message: We provide certain features that allow you to communicate more privately. For example, you can use messages to have private conversations with other Zoruk users. When you privately communicate with others through our Services, such as by sending and receiving messages, we will store and process your communications, and information related to them. Please note that if you interact with public zoruk content shared with you via Message, for instance by liking a post shared via message, those interactions may be public. When you use features like messages to communicate privately, please remember that recipients may copy, store, and re-share the contents of your communications.

Location Information: We may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your post and in your Zoruk profile. We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as allowing you to post with your location, and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to add.

Cookies: We use cookies and similar technologies like many websites to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles.Although most web browsers automatically accept cookies, some browsers’ settings can be modified to decline cookies or alert you when a website is attempting to place a cookie on your computer. However, some Services may not function properly if you disable cookies.

Changes inside the Policy

From time to time, we revise our privacy policy. This is the most current version of our policy that will govern our use of information and will always be at privacy policy section.  If we make a change to this policy that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you via a zoruk update or email to the email address associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.
