Privacy Policy

SlantedPress ("us", "we", or "our") operates the SlantedPress platform at, and its services (assets and auth).

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data.

We use your data to provide and improve the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible fromour Terms and Conditions page

Information Collection And Use

We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide the best service possible, and to improve our platform so we can provide the best experience.

SlantedPress is committed to providing a free and open platform for all. This means that we do not charge our members for expressing themselves and sharing their ideas. Instead, we rely on advertisements. We know how intrusive and inappropriate ads can be, so we work hard to ensure that ads are as appropriate and subtle as possible.

Some of our ad providers may collect behavioural data in order to cater to provide relevant ads that are not disturbing.

In order to give you the best possible experience whilst using our platform, we collect information about your interactions with our articles and members. Some of this information, is provided to us by you when you perform actions such as subscribing to our mailing lists, and creating an account. For example, your first and last name (which we use during communication with you), your email address (which is used as a security measure to mitigate the risks of your account getting compromised, and to communicate with you), as well as username (which we use to track your account, articles, and comments).

Other information we collect, are based on your interactions with the platform, such as what kind of articles you read most, how active you are in the community (e.g. Commenting, flagging, and publishing new articles). In addition to these, we may also collect behavioural data when we are testing new features. These include things like; how long you spend on an article, how many times you visit the same article, how often you use our product features such as the 'comment' box and the 'appreciation' button.

In an attempt to keep our platform secure and protected from attacks, we also monitor access to the platform and any requests made. We do this by logging data such as your Internet Protocol address, the date and time you accessed the service, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information. This information only stays on our system for 3 hours before being deleted, as it is only required as reference to detect repetitive resource request attacks.

Information Disclosure

We may share your account information with external parties in some circumstances, including:

  1. With your consent

  2. Under your explicit wishes

  3. To a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards

  4. With academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, and pseudonomization

  5. When we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal processes

  6. When we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.

If we are going to share your information in response to a legal process or demand, we will notify you when possible, so you can challenge it or make an appeal, unless we’re prohibited by law or believe that doing so may put you or others in danger. We will object to requests for information about members of our platform in cases where we feel it is unreasonable and improper.
