Privacy Policy


Mozambique Insights


At Mozambique Insights, we strive to be a relevant source for in-depth news and analysis on politics, oil and gas, development, banking and finance, and security in Mozambique.


Mozambique Insights is an online publication seeking to bring a Mozambican perspective to the myriad of voices reporting on the country. We operate with passion, integrity, and rigorous fact-checking.

This policy describes how we handle your data when you use “Mozambique Insights Services,” listed below:

  • Our website, like com
  • Our app,
  • Our email newsletter
  • Our pages or ads on social media networks, like our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn pages
  • Anywhere we gather information from you and refer you to this Privacy Policy

How we handle information about you depends on which Mozambique Insights Services you use — and how you use them.

Be aware that certain Mozambique Insights Services work differently.


  1. What Information Do We Gather About You?


The information we gather about you depends on the context. By and large, it’s information about you that can personally identify you — either on its own or when combined with other information.


The following describes the information we collect and how we obtain it.

  1. A) Information Collected Through Mozambique Insights Services.
  2. Information You Voluntarily Give Us
    • For Registration:

When you sign up for a Mozambique Insights Service (e.g., a subscription), we collect your contact information and account credentials. Once you’re registered, we assign you a unique ID number. This ID number helps us recognize you when you’re signed in.


  • For Billing:

To process payments or donations, we collect and use your payment information.

This can include your name, your address, your telephone number, your email address, your credit or debit card information and any other relevant information.

  • For Special Offers:

When you sign up for these, you give us your name, email and any other required information.

  • For Reader Surveys, Research, Panels and Experience Programs:

We gather information through questionnaires, surveys and feedback programs. We also conduct similar research for advertisers. We ask you for your consent to use this information when you participate in these programs and events.

  • Personal Contacts Data:

We never scan your device for your contacts or upload that data.

With your consent, we do comply with your requests to collect data about your friends, family or acquaintances.


  1. Information Collected Automatically
    • With Tracking Technologies in Your Browser and Mobile Apps:

These technologies include cookies, web beacons, tags and scripts, software development kits (or SDKs) and beyond.

We track and store data about how you visit and use Mozambique Insights Services, particularly through our websites and apps. The items we log include:

  • Your IP address
  • Your location
  • Your operating system
  • Your browser
  • Your browser language
  • The URLs of any pages you visit on our sites and apps
  • Device identifiers
  • Advertising identifiers
  • Other usage information.


We combine this data with other information we collect about you. For more information about tracking methods on Mozambique Insights Services, and how to manage them, read our Cookie Policy.

If your browser doesn’t accept our cookies, you can’t access certain parts of our websites.


  1. B) Information Collected From Other Sources.
  1. Privately Owned Databases:

Marketing, data analytic and social media-owned databases give us access to a range of information — like public data, survey data and beyond. This data sometimes includes your mailing address, your gender, your age, your household income and other demographic data.

  1. Social Media Platforms and Other Third-Party Services:

(Social media platforms include Facebook. Third-party services include Google.)

You can link your social media or other third-party account to a Mozambique Insights Service. By linking the services, you authorize us to collect, store and use any information they may give us (e.g., your email address). You can disconnect your registration from third-party accounts at any time.


We also receive information from you when you interact with our pages, groups, accounts or posts on social media platforms. This includes aggregate data on our followers (e.g., age, gender and location), engagement data (e.g., “likes,” comments, shares, reposts and clicks), awareness data (e.g., number of impressions and reach) and individual users’ public profiles.


  1. Workplace:

When your employer buys an organization-wide subscription to, they sometimes provide us with your name and organization email address to grant you access as a user.

What Do We Do With The Information We Collect About You?


  1. A) We provide the Mozambique Insights Services.

We use your information to help you use and navigate Mozambique Insights Services, such as:

  • Making a Mozambique Insights Service available to you
  • Arranging access to your account
  • Providing customer service
  • Responding to your inquiries, requests, suggestions or complaints
  • Completing your payments and transactions
  • Sending service-related messages (e.g., a change in our terms and conditions)
  • Letting you take part in paid services, polls, promotions, surveys, panels, research and comments.


  1. B) We Personalize Your Experience.

We track your interests and reading habits (e.g., the articles you read) to personalize your reading experience using technology like algorithmic recommendations and machine learning. This is how we highlight articles you might be interested in and de-emphasize articles you’ve already read.


  1. C) We Develop Products and Services, and Do Analysis.

We analyze data on our users’ subscription, purchase and usage behaviors. This helps us make business and marketing decisions.

For example, our analysis lets us predict preferences and price points for our products and services. It helps us determine whether our marketing is successful. It also shows us characteristics about our readers, which we sometimes share in aggregate with advertisers.

Google Analytics is one of the analytics providers we use.


  1. D) We Carry Out Administrative Tasks.
  • For auditing: We verify that our internal processes work as intended and comply with legal, regulatory and contractual requirements.
  • For fraud and security monitoring: We detect and prevent cyberattacks or unauthorized robot activities.
  • For customer satisfaction: We assess users’ satisfaction with Mozambique Insights Services and our customer care team.

The above activities can involve outside companies, agents or contractors (“service providers”) with whom we share your personal information for these purposes (discussed further below).


  1. D) We Allow for Personalized Advertising on Mozambique Insights Services and Create Audiences for Third-Party Advertisers.

We gather data and work with third parties to show you personalized ads on behalf of advertisers. This data comes from ad tracking technologies set by us or the third party (e.g., cookies), the information you provide (e.g., your email address), your use of Mozambique Insights Services (e.g., your reading history), information from advertisers (e.g., demographic data) and anything inferred from any of this information. We only use or share this information in a manner that does not reveal your identity.


  1. E) We Advertise Mozambique Insights Services to You.

We market our products to you. We serve ads through websites, locations, platforms and services operated and owned by third parties. Often these ads are targeted at people who have visited or registered for a Mozambique Insights Service but have not subscribed or purchased anything. The ads are also targeted at people with similar traits or behaviours to our subscribers or customers.

We target our advertising to these users by uploading an encrypted customer list to a third party, or by incorporating a tracking technology from a third party onto our Mozambique Insights Service. The third party then matches individuals who appear in both our data and their data. Because of how this matching process works, the third party can’t read our encrypted customer list if they don’t already have it.

To opt out of receiving these matched ads, contact the applicable third parties.


  1. F) We Aggregate (or De-identify) Personal Information Into Larger Findings.

Sometimes we aggregate or de-identify information so that it can no longer identify you, under applicable laws. This helps us better understand and represent our users, such as when we measure ad performance, create advertising interest-based segments or compile survey results. We can use and disclose this aggregated or de-identified information for any purpose, unless an applicable law says otherwise.

  1. With Whom Do We Share the Information We Gather

  1. A) With Other Third Parties:

There are situations when we share your information with third parties beyond our service providers. We never share your email address with these third parties without your consent, except in encrypted form to engage in the matched ads process described above.

  1. We share information about our live event and conference attendees (e.g., your name, your company or your job title)with the event sponsors. In those cases we notify you when you provide us the information.


  1. We process payments you make through Mozambique Insights Services with external services.

There are two ways this can happen:

  • We collect your information and share it with the third-party service for processing.
  • The third-party service collects your information for processing.
  1. In the event of a reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings), we would have a legitimate interest in disclosing or transferring your information to a third party — such as an acquiring entity and its advisers.
  2. We can preserve or share personal information if the law requires us to do so. We can also preserve or share personal information if we believe it would be necessary to:
    • Comply with the law or with legal process
    • Protect and defend our rights and property
    • Protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Mozambique Insights Services
    • Protect the safety or property of our users or the general public (e.g., if you provide false information or attempt to pose as someone else, we could share your information to help investigations into your actions)


  1. What Are Your Rights?


  1. A) How Do I Opt Out of Email, Phone, Mail and Push Notifications?

The opt-out methods described below are limited to the email address, phone or device used. They won’t affect subsequent subscriptions.

  1. Email:

We offer a variety of commercial emails and email newsletters. You can unsubscribe from them by following the “unsubscribe” instructions near the bottom of the email.


  1. Push Notifications:

You can opt out any time by adjusting your device settings, or uninstalling our app.

  1. Text Messages:

You can opt out of text alerts any time by replying “STOP,” or any alternative keyword we’ve shared with you.

We complete any opt-out request as quickly as we can. This opt-out request won’t prohibit us from sending you important nonmarketing notices.


  1. B) How Do You Access, Change, Delete, Update or Exercise Your Other Rights in Relation to Your Personal Information?
    In some parts of the world, you have the right to:
  • Access, modify, or delete the personal information we have about you
  • Receive an electronic copy of the personal information we have about you, for data portability
  • Restrict, or object to, how we process personal information about you
  • Not receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of your privacy rights.

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal information based on our legitimate interest or that of a third party — unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing of, or the keeping of, your personal information for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.


Please use the email address linked to that personal information — we only complete requests on the information linked to your email address. To verify your identity, we will email the email address you provide us, and which matches our records, and wait for your response. In some instances, we may also ask for additional information. This is how we verify your identity before complying.

We’ll respond to your request in a manner consistent with applicable law.

We might need to keep certain information for recordkeeping purposes, or to complete a transaction you began prior to requesting a change or deletion (e.g., if you make a purchase or enter a promotion, you might not be able to change or delete the personal information provided until after the completion of the purchase or promotion).


  1. C) How Do You Manage Your Digital?

You can update your account information and see your transaction history.


  1. What About Sensitive Personal Information


We generally don’t want to gather any sensitive information about you. This includes:

  • Your social security number
  • Your racial or ethnic origin
  • Your political opinions
  • Your religion or other beliefs
  • Your health, biometric or genetic characteristics
  • Any trade union membership
  • Any criminal background

There are rare situations when we request this information (e.g., a reader survey asks about your political leanings), but you can decline to answer. Outside those situations we would prefer you never share that information with us.


  1. How Long Do You Retain Data?


It depends. We store your personal information for as long as needed, or permitted, based on the reason why we obtained it (consistent with applicable law). This means we might retain your personal information even after you close your account with us.

When deciding how long to keep your information, we consider:

  • How long we have had a relationship with you or provided a Mozambique Insights Service to you
  • Whether we are subject to any legal obligations (e.g., any laws that require us to keep transaction records for a certain period of time before we can delete them)
  • Whether we have taken any legal positions (e.g., in connection with any statutes of limitation).

Rather than delete your data, we might de-identify it by removing identifying details.

  1. How Do You Protect My Information?


We protect your personal information with a series of organizational, technological and physical safeguards — but we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We recommend that you use complex and unique passwords for your Mozambique Insights accounts and for third-party accounts linked to them. Do not share your password with anyone.

If you have reason to believe your interaction with us is no longer secure, notify us immediately.

  1. What About Third-Party Services?


Some Mozambique Insights Services contain links to third-party websites, resources, vendors and advertisers. These third parties are not Mozambique Insights Services. Additionally, Mozambique Insights Services may be available to you through third-party digital properties such as Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP). We do not control (and are not responsible for) third party content or privacy practices. These third parties may independently collect and solicit information about you and affect your data preferences when you access the Mozambique Insights Services on third-party digital properties. Any personal data you provide to them is not covered by this Privacy Policy. These third parties have their own policies and practices about data, which may include what information they share with us, your rights and choices on their services and devices, and whether they store information in Mozambique or elsewhere. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with their privacy policies and terms of use.


  1. How Are Changes to This Privacy Policy Communicated?

We periodically update this Privacy Policy. We will post any changes on this page by updating this policy.

If we make a significant or material change in the way we collect, use or share your personal information, we will notify you at least 30 days prior to the changes taking effect. We will do this via email or prominent notice within Mozambique Insights Services. If you object to any change, you can stop using the Mozambique Insights Services.

After we post any changes on this page, your continued use of Mozambique Insights Services is subject to the updated Privacy Policy.
