Effective Date: February 26, 2020
This policy explains the information collected on users of the FORUM mobile applications, and how that information is used. FORUM’s aim is not just to comply with applicable privacy law, but to earn and maintain the trust of our users.
Information collected & how it is used
The tracking done by FORUM is to make our products work as well as possible and to give users the best possible experience. Therefore, the only information collected is from user interaction with our app. Some of this information, actively provided by the user (for instance, when a request is made to be added to FORUM’s print magazine distribution, information on a user’s email and mailing address would be collected); however, this information is not shared with third parties. Other information collected is based on actions users take while interfacing with FORUM applications, such as pages accessed and user interactions with FORUM product features (e.g. likes, comments, thumbs up, thumbs down, etc). This information includes records of those interactions, Internet Protocol addresses, and information about devices (e.g. device type).
FORUM uses this information to:
- Provide, test, and improve FORUM mobile applications
- Fight spam and other forms of abuse
- Generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how users interact with and use FORUM products
