Privacy Policy

We value your privacy. Your password is encrypted before we store and authenticate it, so we don't have access to your original password. We protect any information that is personally-identifying. We will never sell your personal information.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, News Rush collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. News Rush's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how News Rush's visitors use its website. From time to time, News Rush may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

News Rush also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. News Rush only discloses IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Content in the Service

News Rush automatically groups news articles, blog posts, and other publicly-available content based on people or entities that are related to the content. News Rush does not guarantee that the groupings will be correct. There will be circumstances in which content is incorrectly linked to a person or entity.

While the content in the News Rush service may reference users by name, News Rush only aggregates content that is publicly available on other websites and indexable by a search engine. We do not search for personal records, criminal records, phone numbers, addresses, or other private information.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Some features of the News Rush service require News Rush to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that News Rush gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we gather basic information about a user and his or her contacts if the user chooses to connect his or her account to services such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or email. In each case, News Rush collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the service. We never store your login credentials to any third party websites. News Rush does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain features of the service.

Use of Personally-Identifying Information

If you grant News Rush access to your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or email account, News Rush will collect certain information about you and the people you are connected to on the account. This information is limited by the privacy settings of you and your connections, which you set through your accounts on those services. News Rush uses this information to disambiguate between people or entities with similar names, and will not make public any of the information gathered from these services, with the exception of the name, public photo, and account ID of you and your connections, which are already publicly available.

If you grant News Rush permission to do so, News Rush may post activity to your Facebook account via Facebook Open Graph that corresponds to actions you take on News Rush. News Rush will not post activity to Facebook except in response to your specific actions on News Rush. By submitting contacts from any service, you authorize News Rush to contact those individuals on your behalf.

Aggregated Statistics

News Rush may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, News Rush may monitor the most popular users, news articles, and comments. News Rush may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, News Rush does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

News Rush discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on News Rush’s behalf or to provide services available at newsrush.com, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the News Rush service, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. News Rush will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, News Rush discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when News Rush believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of News Rush, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the News Rush service and have supplied your email address, News Rush may periodically send you an email to tell you about new news articles, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with News Rush and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. News Rush takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
