Information that we collect and how we use it
We may collect the following types of information:
- Information you provide when you sign up for News360, like your name, email and other personal information. This may be entered directly, or submitted through a third party account you use to login (i.e. your Facebook or Twitter account).
- Log information - when you access News360 through a browser or via one of our applications, we may automatically log the browser version, browser language, Internet
- Protocol address, date and time of your request, and what type of device you are using.
- User communications - when you send us email or other communications, we may keep your communications on file in order to respond to you and improve our products per your feedback.
- Location data - News360 provides local news as part of its services. This means that we have to discover and process your coordinates, or coordinates of the city you explicitly specified in the settings of the app. If you do not use the local news feature, we do not collect your coordinates.
- Unique device identifier - When you use any of the News360 apps, we use the UDID of your device to give you persistent settings and service - this number usually cannot be used to identify your person and is not connected to your personal information, other than the information you explicitly provide to us.
- Advertising identifier - On some mobile platforms, News360 uses the advertiser identifier instead of the UDID, for example on Android, we use the
Android Advertising ID.
This is used for usage statistics, analytics and to serve promote stories.
News360 only shares information with other services and companies in the following scenarios:
- You have explicitly given us consent to share information with 3rd parties.

- The information is provided to trusted service providers with the intention that the 3rd parties requires this information to perform a service for News360. We require these 3rd parties to comply with the News360 privacy policies.
- We are legally required to disclose specific information to 3rd parties, including government agencies. News360 will only provide the information that is explicitely required and will not volunteer information when not legally obligated.
- News360 reasonably believes that disclosing the information is necessary to detect fraud, security or technical issues and prevent harm to News360 or its users.
News360 takes reasonable precautions to protect user data, including appropriate cryptographic procedures, including hashing password data and encrypting sensitive data during transmission. Service providers and 3rd parties that information is shared with are screened to be sure they also take commercially acceptable precautions to protect your data. However, News360 can make no guarantee on your data's security in our or our partners' systems.
Due to the distributed nature of News360's technology, some or all of your data may be stored outside of your state or country. This is done to make sure that your data is optimally accessible from any location, and to optimize system architecture.
