Privacy and security of the users on the needgap platform is of utmost importance to me; This is resonated through out the design of this platform.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Email is optionally entered by the user while registering (or) later via profile settings. Email is used for sending password reset emails, notifications regarding user user activity such as receiving a comment for their post or reply for their comment, notifications regarding their account and occasional information about the platform and for subscription features. The notifications can be disabled in the profile settings.
Email can be removed in the profile settings, but subscription features cannot be enabled, password reset will not be possible if the user forgets their password and there will be no notifications regarding their posts or comments.
Billing Address (optional)
When subscription is enabled Billing Address is stored for tax invoice purposes as mandated by the government and for fraud prevention by payment gateway. These details are not shared with anyone else apart from the payment gateway and the tax regime.
