TecPhlie Privacy and Ethics Policy

This Privacy Policy explains our practices regarding the collection, usage and disclosure of information that we receive from our users through our chat bot functionalities as made available by our product along with it's implementations.
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and contact us if you have any questions.

Information we collect from you

Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.
Since this chat bot is built to provide answers to basic questions related to a specific topic of discussion (GHCI Student Scholarships), the interactions are not user-specific. Therefore, as we are not dealing with user specific data to provide our services, we do not collect any personal information of our users, except the queries asked by them. Our primary goal in collecting this textual information is to improve our services.
But there is certain amount of information that is collected by the platforms and integrations our chat bot uses. This includes
  • Time zone
  • Location (Latitude and Longitude values wrapped in a Location object)
  • Query (Natural language text to be processed )
  • sessionID- a unique anonymous string of characters identifying the session, etc

How we use the information

We only store the textual information to better our chat bots questions handling capacity and efficiency and also to ensure that the number of no match conversations is minimum. Other pieces of information mentioned above are necessary for the agents's functioning over various platforms.

What information do we share?

We never share the data with anyone. Data is collected solely for enhancing the response quality and the bot is built for the purpose of making the users aware of the student scholarships provided by GHCI.

How users can change/delete their data

The only way this chat bot can identify a user is with the help of a 'sessionID' which is a unique, anonymous string of characters which identifies their session. The users can choose any one of the two options called 'Reset App' or 'Stop this app from remembering me'. Doing this will change or reset the unique code the chat bot uses to remember them and hence the user will seem to be a new user during their next interaction with the app.

Privacy Questions

If you have any questions or concerns about our Privacy Policy or data processing, or if you would like to reach out to us to report a possible breach of local privacy laws, please contact us.

Revisions to this Privacy Policy

Any information that is collected via our services is covered by our Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected. We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If any change is brought to this Privacy Policy, we will provide a proper notice of those changes on our service and also update the “Last Updated on” field above to indicate when those changes become effective.

What do we promise about our reviews
  • TecPhlie does not take any payment to review the phones.
  • TecPhlie provides unbiased, honest opinions on the products, with no limit for appreciation or criticism.
  • TecPhlie team says what the expert team finds about the product, but not what the Advertisers wants us to say.

We set some editorial guidelines and review guidelines to review a product, which either we purchase, or we receive for a review from the brand as a loan. If we receive the device from the brand as a gift we give it away through a giveaway or some other way but never use them.

If, in any case, we charge a company to review the product, it should not have anything promotional and we would stick to the unbiased theory while reviewing it. Not always a product is sent to us after the launch, and when we receive the product prior to the market launch, we agree to an embargo with the company or the PR firm associated with it, and only after the public launch, the review is published although we take the same time for review as it is done for any product.

Sometimes, we do not receive the products (mobile phone) from the company and the team purchases the device. Occasionally, the phone sent by the company is retained for longer time than usual and this is in case of the smartphones which receive regular updates which are important to cover and let our readers know about it, and this is again not any different case.

What is a hands-on (according to TecPhlie)

This is an opinion given by us about a product which could either be in the production phase, not released in the market, or the final product, but this isn’t after testing every aspect for days. The hands-on that we write, are with the initial impressions giving a general overview of the product, and we try to give our views based on the current technology and the need in the current market.

The hands-on doesn’t give a final picture about the worth of the product, and it doesn’t help the reader on deciding whether this is something worth purchasing, because the final review is done after thorough testing and usage. The use of the word “review” here doesn’t mean we test everything, but it follows the word hands-on to make a perfect sense.

What is a review (according to TecPhlie)

A review is something done by our team testing out the various factors which we feel are important for the buyers, and which we test every bit before coming to a final conclusion, comparing with similar products in the market. The review includes various factors which we rate to put up a final score, and the review is done only after the product is available in the market, thus giving an idea to the reader whether the product is worth the price.

Here are the different factors that we test, before putting up a review of the phone (or a similar product in our niche).

  • Design, Form Factor
  • Display, Outdoor (under the sun) brightness, Viewing angles
  • Performance, Speed, Benchmarks
  • Cameras – capturing samples, video recording, features, modes
  • Call quality – reception, speaker quality
  • Software – OS, Interface, Ease of use and Apps
  • Ports, Speakers location and quality
  • Battery life (testing the life on light & heavy usage)
  • Connectivity – data network, other options tested
  • Value for money

Who does the reviews at TecPhlie?

The review team has a few people working around the camera testing, benchmarking, capturing videos and testing out the call quality, network strength and such, and this is led by the editor.
