Effective Date: October 1, 2022.
We respect our audience, and we want you to understand both how we handle your data and the choices and rights that you have in connection with that data.
You can visit our website without telling us anything about yourself. When you sign up for a newsletter, event, or other public offering, you will be asked to provide us with, at minimum, an email address where we can reach you in connection with the subscription or service you have requested. We do not collect or maintain any information you provide for resale purposes.
Data We Collect
The data we collect fall into two broad categories, specifically, personal information and general or aggregate usage data.
1. Personal Information
Personal information we collect may include your name, email address, and other information that can be used to identify you as an individual. If you sign up for a paid product, you will be asked to provide payment information, such as a credit or debit card number, billing zip code, and other information necessary to process the transaction you have requested. We may also collect voluntary survey responses to help us better understand our audience and improve our products and services.
2. General or Aggregate Usage Data
When you visit our website, receive a newsletter, click on a hyperlink, or otherwise make use of our offerings, we record information that generally cannot be used to identify you as an individual. This data allows us to understand how many users are accessing our website or newsletters, roughly where in the world those users are, which stories or links are most interesting to our audience, and other general usage patterns.
When you click on an advertisement, the fact of that click may be recorded both by Pluribus itself and by third-party services designed to measure ad effectiveness and reach.
Information From Third-Party Sources
We may also receive personal or aggregate data from third-party sources. From time to time, we build and augment our mailing lists through publicly and commercially available sources. We may also receive your email address from your employer or another individual who wishes to provide you with a subscription to one of our offerings. If you interact with us through social media, we may have access to personal information through that social media platform, depending on your settings.
Information We Share With Third Parties
We do not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties, nor do we share personal information with advertisers or event sponsors. We do share some aggregate usage data with advertisers, event sponsors, and other commercial partners, to help them understand the reach and value of our offerings.
We may share data with trusted partners to facilitate your use of Pluribus offerings. In particular, when we accept payment via credit card, we use secure, third-party service providers whose business is the protection of client data.
Pluribus offerings contain links to third-party websites, including through advertisements. We have no responsibility for the content, policies, or practices of third-party websites. Nor are we responsible for data, code, or anything else that is transmitted to your computer by any third party.
If you choose to share personal information with third parties you have accessed through Pluribus News products or services, you make this choice at your own risk. In all cases, we recommend reviewing the privacy practices of any organization you share personal information with.
Pluribus may store text files called cookies on your computer or other electronic device to improve your experience on our site. Each cookie is unique and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.
Your browser may be set up to accept cookies, request acceptance of specific cookies, or disable them completely. You will still be able to access and navigate through our site if you disable cookies, but your experience may be more cumbersome without them.
Do Not Track Signals
Pluribus does not track its users over time and across third party websites and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
Updating or Deleting Your Data
You may opt out of our newsletters and other bulk correspondence at any time by following the instructions contained at the bottom of each email. You may also contact us directly, at firstname.lastname@example.org, to request copies of, changes to, or the deletion of your personal information.
Our offerings are not directed toward minors. Individuals under 18 years of age should not provide us with any personal information without parental consent.
