This site is provided as a free public service with no commercial aspirations whatsoever, so we will never share personal data about you with anybody unless legally forced to. The hosting provider for the website (currently AWS) may store IP addresses for security reasons and to maintain the integrity of the hosting platform. These are deleted when they are no longer needed.
To prevent server overload, track site growth and research usage patterns, we keep a secure permanent log of site visits consisting of access times, pages visited, IP addresses and slider settings. These data will never be shared, but high-level analysis of user interests may be used for future research, for example to determine whether user interest in various news topics differs from the proportions in which these topics are written about in media.
We will not share your data unless legally forced to.
If you fill out the feedback form, your feedback and its metadata are retained indefinitely, so we can keep track of any suggestions you may have and hopefully implement them. We also do not delete the above-mentioned analytics data, to keep open the possibility of future research.
