When it comes to your data, we’ll only collect what we’re required to by law, what is necessary for the platform to function correctly, and data that helps us serve our global membership. We won’t sell your information to third parties, and if we ever change how we use your data, we’ll ask your permission first. That’s our privacy promise to you.
We also believe journalism should be more transparent. So in our annual financial report we’ll show you how we’ve spent your membership contributions, and on our anniversary every year we’ll share the editorial highlights from the previous 12 months.
I love that The Correspondent recognizes the potential of working together with readers, just like we do at WikiTribune.
If we both succeed in bringing this potential to life, it could truly be transformative for journalism in the years to come.
