We receive some information automatically when you use Abridge News. This includes data about your device, software, the operating system you use when accessing our site, your Internet Protocol address, the date and time of each request you make to Abridge News, and user reaction data.
We use your information to keep Abridge News running, to understand how you use our platform, to customize your experience, to prevent abuse, to provide reaction results insights back to our user community, and to improve Abridge News. We use your information internally only as needed to accomplish these goals.
We will share your personally identifiable information only in the limited circumstances below. Abridge News does not sell your information or share it with third-party advertisers.
With your permission. We may share your information with your consent, after letting you know what information will be shared and with whom.
In response to the law. We may disclose your information if we believe it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or valid legal process. If we are going to release your information, our policy is to provide you with notice unless we are prohibited from doing so by law or court order (e.g., an order under 18 U.S.C. § 2705(b)). We may disclose your information without providing you with prior notice if we believe it’s necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person. Nothing in this policy is intended to limit any legal objections or defenses you might have to demands to compel disclosure of your information, including demands from the government.
With other users. Abridge News displays aggregate reaction insights to our user community.
We may also disclose aggregate, non-identifying information about how our users use Abridge News.
Local Storage. Local storage provides similar functionality to cookies, but its contents are kept on your device and not transmitted across the Internet, like cookies are. As with cookies, we use local storage technologies to collect and store information (including personal information) to identify whether you have accessed Abridge News before.
Do Not Track. Some browsers make it possible for you to signal that you don’t want your Internet browsing activity to be tracked. The Internet community hasn’t reached a consensus on how to best honor these signals, so Abridge News doesn’t respond to Do Not Track requests at this time.
Email. To measure the deliverability of our emails to users, we may embed information in them, such as a web beacon or tag.
Abridge News is designed to have several layers of security. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) to create a secure tunnel to protect data in transit between your device and Abridge News’ servers. We narrowly limit the number of Abridge News employees who have access to user data through policy and technical access controls. No transmission over the internet is completely secure, so we can’t absolutely guarantee that unauthorized parties won’t be able to defeat our security measures. You use Abridge News at your own risk, and are responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account. We are always on the lookout for vulnerabilities in Abridge News. If you discover a vulnerability in our service, we would be grateful for your report and encourage you to let us know immediately. If you give us reasonable time to respond to your report before making any information public, and make a good faith effort to avoid privacy violations, destruction of data, and interruption or degradation of our service during your research, we will not pursue any legal action against you or ask law enforcement to investigate your actions. To report a vulnerability, please email [email protected]
If you would like to request access, correction, or deletion of your information Abridge News maintains, please email [email protected].
