Who is Manabi?

Manabi's website and apps include,, and the Manabi and Manabi Reader apps on the Apple App Store. Throughout this Privacy Policy we’ll refer to our websites, mobile applications, and other products and services collectively as “Services.”

As a news feed and RSS reader client (among other web-oriented functionality), Manabi contains many links and embedded content targeting or displayed from third-party external websites, social media profiles, or other outside companies and content providers. These "other websites" are not Manabi's properties, and this policy doesn't cover how those other websites store and process data. When viewing other website content using Manabi tools, please refer to those websites' own policies and privacy notices.

Information we collect

Certain visitors to Manabi's websites choose to interact with Manabi in ways that require Manabi to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Manabi gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at to provide a username and email address. In each case, Manabi collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Manabi. Manabi does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this policy. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website and app-related activities.

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so — for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. We collect this information from three sources: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
