Your personal privacy and the privacy of your data is paramount to us at Fourview. We want to provide you a safe, private, and ad-free social networking experience. We strongly believe that your private life on social media should remain YOURS. You need to have full control over your private data and content you share and engage with.
When our need to build the Fourview social network became urgent, we realised that we would still need to ask you for some personal data. Our other choice was to choose to create a network where users could join with fake identities. However, we want to build a network for people who are honestly looking for a place to enjoy social networking experience to the fullest. Fake identities, on the other hand, can create opportunities for hate speech, propaganda, extremists and similar, which is what we do not want. Thus, because Fourview is for real people with true needs, certain private data are required.
For the purposes of EU data protection laws (“Data Protection Legislation”) and The California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA), Fourview is the data controller (i.e. the company which is responsible for and controls the processing of your personal data).
What information do we collect from you?
We are building Fourview to be a digital stronghold where you can take your social media data into your hands. The purpose of personal data protection isn’t just to protect a person’s data, but to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of persons that are related to that data.
Only for a better experience, while using our Service, we may require you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information, including but not limited to your name, phone number, and postal address. The information that we collect will ONLY be used to contact or identify you.
- Information you provide us directly: We ask for certain information such as your username, first and last name, phone number and email address when you register for a Fourview account or if you correspond with us.
- We may also collect your photo and government ID to validate your identity if you have asked us to do so such as if you request to verify your account.
- We may also allow you to provide us your log-in credentials for third-party services (like Twitter) so that you can post information from the Service onto the third-party service.
Do Not Track (DNT) policy
DNT refers to digital tracking of how a website visitor navigates across a site and to/from other sites. For example, If a user clicks a link on your website which takes them elsewhere in your site or externally to another site or external link and the website records those activities, this is tracking. Tracking website browsing patterns is useful for improving a user’s overall experience. However, it allows advertisers to target consumers with relevant ads, even reminding them of items they previously saw or similar items available from a competitor.
How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
Our service respects your privacy and we respect your Do Not Track settings. You decide, on your own terms, how you will connect and communicate with others. There would be no tracking users over time and across the third-party websites and therefore Fourview does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
Do Not Track (DNT) technology is a feature provided to users by browsers and mobile devices. It allows users to allow or prevent websites from collecting information about their brower activities. Learn more about Do Not Track:
