Who we are

This is the official website for Alhani ألحاني – Mobile App available on Android & iOS.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When visitors register on Alhani, we collect the data shown in the registration form (Email Address, Full Name, Username), and also the user’s IP address and device information to help spam detection and to help send user profile’s notifications.

Media & Caching

If you upload images to Alhani, they get compressed and resized to help maximize the app performance. Most of the images in the app (Profiles Pictures, Posts Images, Comments Images, Chat Images, audio records…etc.) they get cached on your device to help load them up faster and even when you have no internet connection.

Camera & Photos

Camera and Photos. Many of our services require us to collect images and other information from your device’s camera and photos. For example, you won’t be able to send Clips of you singing or upload photos from your camera roll unless we can access your camera or photos.

Settings Preferences

If you switch Alhani app theme, you may opt-in to saving your preference in a small file stored on your device containing your shared preferences in a key-value pair. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to reset your preferences every time you close and open the app.

Embedded content from other websites

Alhani allows its users to include embedded content (other websites links). 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.

Who we share your data with

We may share your personal data (Name & Email) if we have your consent to do so. e.g. If you subscribe to our News Letter, we share your name & email with a third party email marketing service like MailChimp to help us send you emails to keep you updated with the app’s hottest posts.
