Which type of Information Does Trinity News Daily Collect?
There are two distinct types of information which we currently collect as a result of our interaction with our readers (by their access to our services). They are:
- Non-personally identifiable information.
- Personally identifiable information.
The former does NOT identify a user, however, it may include website usage and tracking information relative to your demographics, location, website use, and internet use. The latter represents any information capable of personally identifying our users, such as name, username, phone number, address, email address, social media account details. Additionally, this can also represent Non-personally identifiable information that has been previously connected to your personally identifiable information.
- Personally identifiable information
Our users are able to access our website without having to provide any type of personally identifiable information. Certain actions, though, may require you to provide your personally identifiable information. They include: subscribing to Trinity News Daily, subscribing to our newsletter, subscribing to other types of content, placing an order, registering with the website or completing surveys provided on the website.
