We are committed to protecting our users' privacy.
This policy explains what data we collect and what we do with that data.
What data we collectWhen you sign up to Twurly we collect the following data from you.
- Your Twitter access token (which gives us access to your tweets)
- Your email address
What we do with that data
Your Twitter access tokenThis gives us read-only access to your Tweets (we can't and won't send messages as you).
Twurly uses this to read your Twitter feed and collect webpage links shared by the people that you follow.
It also gives us access to information shared in your Twitter profile. Specifically, your name and your location.
Twurly uses this to correctly address emails to you and to help determine your time zone.
Your email addressTwurly uses this to send you a sign-up confirmation email and the daily email digest of links.
We may also send occasional emails related to the running of the Twurly website.
What we won't do with that data
Your Twitter access tokenWe won't send Twitter messages (Tweets) on your behalf. In fact, we can't; Twurly only has read-only access to your Tweets so Twitter would block any attempt by us to do that.
Your email addressWe won't sell, disclose or otherwise pass on your email address or other personal information to any outside party (other than as required by UK law).
Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites (more about cookies).
You can disable any cookies already stored on your computer, but these may stop Twurly from working properly.
