A Note About How SAYING TRUTH MEDIA Works
Our Services analyze data that is made available publicly through the Internet in order to measure the buzz and create a sentiment (“SAYING TRUTH MEDIA Sentiment”) for Internet users, including, but not limited to, our registered users. SAYING TRUTH MEDIA presents some of this data on the Site and our mobile application(s), such data may also be available on other websites and SAYING TRUTH MEDIA may share this data with our third party partners (as described in more detail below). SAYING TRUTH MEDIA does not analyze non-public data from private networks (in other words, networks that are password-protected) unless you authorize us to access such data.
Information Collected Upon Registration
If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Services and/or to have access to or use of certain parts of the Services, you will be required to become a registered user, and to submit certain Personal Information to SAYING TRUTH MEDIA. Personal Information that we may collect in such instances may include your full user name, password, email address, city, time zone, telephone number, and other information that you decide to provide us with, or that you decide to include in your public profile. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and find opportunities in the SAYING TRUTH MEDIA system.
SAYING TRUTH MEDIA receives location information from the Social Media Services (as defined below) that you enable within the Service and also (with your permission) from your mobile device (“Geo-location Data”). We use Geo-location Data to complete your SAYING TRUTH MEDIA profile (for example, to indicate that you are located in San Francisco), customize the Service to make it more relevant to you (for example, to show you influential topics in your area).
When you interact with the Site or use our Services, our servers automatically receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information (“Log Data”). This Log Data is collected passively and may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, the Site pages you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements on which you click. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on. We use Log Data to provide you with the Services (for example, to provide push notifications on your mobile device) and pool it with other information to monitor the use of the Services, and for the technical administration of the Services. We do not associate your IP address with any other Personal Information to identify you personally, except in cases where we are asked to comply with a subpoena or other legal demand or where we suspect that there has been a violation of our policies, our Terms of Service and/or applicable law.
Use of Information
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of our Services, SAYING TRUTH MEDIA also often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and SAYING TRUTH MEDIA may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. SAYING TRUTH MEDIA may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We consider your information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Information with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below.
We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns. We will share your Personal Information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services.
