This policy covers data usage for the whole Newstream community, including data collected through the use of the Newstream website as well as the browser extension that powers our community. The browser extension collects data from browsing activity to be aggregated and algorithmically explored to reveal interesting trends in internet activity. IP addresses are internally recorded to prevent abuse and ensure visits are not over counted.
Under no circumstances will data be sold. At some point in the future, Newstream may make the web traffic data on the platform publicly available for public benefit, but only of whitelisted URLs and stripped of personally identifiable information.
We are supporters and proponents of the New Deal on Data
, and thus will only act as temporary chaperones of your data, to put it to good use for you, the Newstream community, and the wider public. We will handle the use of your data with complete transparency and only so long as you allow us to use it. The owner of any account may reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to have the data associated with the requesting email address deleted at any time. This may take up to 30 days to process, after which the data will be unrecoverable.
We firmly believe that organizations that are open and honest about the utilization of user information are not only more ethical, but more sustainable and impactful due to their ability to do even more extraordinarily helpful things with data that could only ever be collected on a foundation of respect and mutual trust.
