Privacy Policy

1. Dataigest Privacy Policy

This Policy explains what information we collect when you use Dataigest ’s sites, services, mobile applications, products, and content (“Services”). It also has information about how we store, use, transfer, and delete that information. Our aim is not just to comply with privacy law. It’s to earn your trust.

Information We Collect & How We Use It

Dataigest doesn’t make money from ads. So we don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking we do at Dataigest is to make our product work as well as possible. So, to give you the best possible experience in using Dataigest, we collect information from your interactions with our Services.

You actively tell us some of this information, such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you. We collect other information based on actions you take while using Dataigest, such as what pages you view, including how much of a given page and how long. This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information (how you got to a particular page).

When you create your Dataigest account and authenticate with a third-party service (like Twitter, Facebook, Apple, or Google), we may collect, store, and periodically update information associated with that third-party account, such as your lists of friends or followers. We will never publish something through one of your third-party accounts without your express permission.

Information Disclosure

Dataigest won’t transfer information about you to third parties to provide or facilitate third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you to a third party.

We may transfer your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including:

  • With your consent.
  • To a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards.
  • With academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonymization.
  • When we have a good faith belief, the law requires it according to a subpoena or other legal process.
  • When we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.

Suppose we are going to share your information in response to the legal process. In that case, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example, by seeking court intervention) unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others or cause illegal conduct. We will object to legal requests for information about users of our services that we think are improper.

Tracking & Cookies

We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, such as logging you in, remembering your preferences (such as default language), evaluating email effectiveness, allowing our paywall and meter to function, and personalizing content and other services. Without cookies, our metered paywall would not work, so they are necessary to Dataigest’s basic functionality.

Dataigest saves data about the URLs you Save to Dataigest (an optional feature that you may choose to use or decline to use), but we do not otherwise track your visits or activities off Dataigest Services. We track your interactions within the Dataigest Services.

Some third-party services that we use to provide the Service, such as Google Analytics, may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Dataigest only and not cookies by third parties.

Modifying or Deleting Your Personal Information

If you have a Dataigest account, you can access, modify or export your personal information or delete your account here.

To protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, we may maintain residual copies for a brief period (generally several weeks). But, if you delete your account, your information and content will be unrecoverable after that time. Dataigest may preserve and maintain copies of your data beyond this period when required to do so by law.

Data Security

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.

Business Transfers

Suppose we’re involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, reorganization, or sale of assets such that your information would be transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy. In that case, we’ll notify you in advance so you can opt-out of any such new policy by deleting your account before transfer.

Email from Dataigest

When you interact with an email sent from Dataigest (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction.

We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, please forward it to us at [email protected] so we can investigate.

Changes to this Policy

Dataigest may periodically update this Policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it. The most current version of the Policy will always be here, and we will archive former versions of the Policy here.


We welcome feedback about this Policy at [email protected].
