9. Third-Party Content
anime.adgstudios.co.za is a content aggregator that uses various third-party APIs to provide a searchable database of anime content. We do not host, upload, or directly provide any anime content ourselves. Our service functions similar to a search engine, in that it indexes content that is already hosted on other websites.
Our technology decodes API data and presents it in a user-friendly format on our platform. The content provided by these third-party APIs is not under our control, and we cannot take responsibility for the nature, content, and availability of those sites. We claim no intellectual property rights over the media provided by these APIs.
The presence of any such third-party links does not imply a recommendation or endorse the views expressed within them. Should any content owner or distributor have an issue with the content indexed on our platform, please contact us directly, and we will happily cooperate with any valid legal request to address the concern.

Data Storage: We are committed to protecting the privacy of our users. We store minimal metadata related to the application, such as URLs for the sitemaps that users visit on the website, to improve our SEO and enhance user experience. This metadata does not include any personal user information.
User Accounts and OAuth: When users create an account on anime.adgstudios.co.za, we use OAuth authentication methods for security.
