We value the privacy of our clients, our users, and society at large.
DNT – Do Not Track
At Nara, we take privacy very seriously; while industry has not reached consensus over how to honor Do Not Track (“DNT”) requests, we at Nara have considered the arguments both for and against support of this proposal. Nara is fundamentally in agreement with the arguments presented by the EFF in support of the proposal, and we have already begun implementation of their recommended best practices regarding DNT.
- Nara has begun the work required to honor DNT
- Nara will soon honor DNT unless the user specifically “ops-back-in” by logging into our website.

1. Information we collect
Nara is founded on the concept of trust and, as such, earning and keeping your trust are paramount to what we do. At Nara, we are fiercely protective of your personal information. In order to provide the Service, we need to collect both “Non-Personal Information” and “Personal Information.” Non-Personal Information includes information that cannot be used to personally identify you, such as anonymous usage data, demographic information, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit. Personal Information includes only your first name and email address, which you submit to us through the registration process on the Site or the Nara App and which is not shared with any third parties. You may also, but are not required to, provide us with your gender when registering for the Site or the Nara App.
A. Information collected via technology
B. To use the service thereafter, you do not need to submit further personal information
In an effort to improve the quality of the Site, the Nara App and the Service, we track non-personal information provided to us by your browser or mobile application when you view the Site, the Nara App or use the Service. Methods may include, the website you may have come from (known as the “referring url”), the type of browser you use, the device from which you connected to the Service, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you.
C. Information you give us
We may highlight the User Content you submit via the Service or on the Site or the Nara App such as reviews, comments, or articles. In addition, if you register for the Service using a third party service provider (e.g. Facebook Connect), any user who is connected to you via such third party service provider (e.g. a user that is your “friend” on Facebook or “follows” you on Twitter) can view the User Content you may submit via the Service or on the Site or the Nara App. In addition, if you voluntarily send information to another user, including by emailing such user a link, that information can be viewed and possibly used by such user.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily provide information or publish links in public areas of the Site or the Nara App, such as the user profile pages or forums, that information can be viewed and possibly used by others. We therefore advise users not to disclose contact information, including phone number, email address, street address or instant messenger address within these public areas that they do not wish to share. We are not responsible for Personal Information you choose to submit in these forums or pages.
Nara does not knowingly collect or solicit information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for Nara or send any information about you to us, including your first name, gender and email address. No one under age 13 may provide any information to or on Nara.
2. How we use information
A. Personal information
With forethought, discretion, and respect for our users, we may use your email address to send you messages, including information about Nara and special offers. We may use your first name and gender (if provided) or refer to your User Content in such messages.
You may register for the Service using third party service providers (e.g., Facebook Connect) (“Third Party Services”). By enabling such Third Party Services within the Service, you permit us to pass information to the third party service providers for this purpose. Please remember that the manner in which Third Party Services use, store and disclose your information is governed solely by the policies of such Third Party Services. You should review the applicable terms and policies of Third Party Services, including privacy and data gathering practices. We shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Third Party Services or any other third party site or service that may be enabled within the Service.
B. Non-personal information
3. How we protect information
Your privacy and trust are paramount to our success and fundamental to our business. We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. Your account is protected by your account password and we urge you to take steps to keep your account safe by not disclosing your password and by logging out of your account after each use. Your emails to us are not necessarily secure against interception so do not include sensitive information in them. We generally will not ask for passwords or the like in an email. You agree not to enter information on the Site or the Nara App if you (or anyone else whose information you enter) desire a higher level of security than we describe in this policy or if you have not obtained any appropriate consents. We further protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encrypted login credentials, off-site data storage, tiered-security data models, and bank-level SSL encryption for site transactions. We also employ industry-accredited services to test our site daily, and we subscribe to anti-phishing services and fraud-detection services to further protect the Site and our Service. Although we strive to minimize the risk of an unlawful security breach of our system, like with all systems, these measures do not guarantee that your information will never be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
