At the Ibadan Review, we are committed to protecting the personal information shared in every account that signs up on our website, whether as a contributor, reader, reviewer or buyer. This Privacy policy governs only personal information shared through the website. In addition to this, you consent to us holding your information in places other than the country of residence. By using this platform, you consent to the platform collecting your personal and non-personal information from your activities on the platform. 


  2. At different points, especially to access certain features of the platform, The Ibadan Review will collect both your personal and non-personal information. Without providing such information, you may not be able to progress when taking certain actions on the platform. Similarly failure to provide accurate information, when we find out, may lead to the suspension or termination of your access. 

  3. We commit, except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy section, that we will never share your data, personal and non-personal information with any third party without your permission.

  4. We may share usage data and non-personal information that can help third parties serve appropriate advertisement on the platform to you. However, this will never include information that is sufficient enough to personally identify you. We may also use your information on the platform to send you promotional items whether through the website or through other means possible by the information you provide. You may however request for your information to not be used in specific ways, for which we are obliged to obey.


  5. We may share aggregated data of the information on our platform with third parties but not in any way that may allow third parties to personally identify you.

The Ibadan Review may also use third parties to provide components of the platform. In such cases, such third parties may have separate privacy policies and data collection practices, independent of The Ibadan Review. This Privacy Policy is only applicable for activities on this platform, and does not apply to third party services whether found on this platform or linked from this platform.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
