Internet services and social media integration (currently in development)

Twilight News continues to constantly test new services to support internet-friendly ways of content distribution, including curating services such as ScribbleLive and Storify. We embed our content within social networks such as Facebook, Google Plus, Soundcloud, Twitter and YouTube.

For example, we embed content from providers such as YouTube, which is stored on their servers, on our websites. If you open a link to such a website that features outside content, this provider will receive the IP address of the device you use to go online. This external provider cannot draw any conclusions about your personal data from this IP address alone, but can infer, for example, where you are located geographically. Furthermore, this provider can program cookies on your device, with which they can log your online behaviour.

For any commentary made using Disqus, Twilight News will receive the following information about the user: the email address you provided and the IP address assigned to you by your provider at the time of your comment. Twilight News only uses these email addresses when it needs to contact you in case of queries regarding your comments. There is no other use of the email addresses, nor will they be publicized of shared with third parties in any way. The IP addresses are only transmitted to prevent any misuse of the comment function. Users that misuse the comment function can be blocked using the IP-address.

ScribbleLive

For content featuring live blogs or a live ticker (for example, Life Links, football tickers and so on) tlightnews.com uses the ScribbleLive service provided by Scribble Inc. (Canada), 200-488 Wellington St., West Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5V 1E3.

We embed ScribbleLive, which uses Scribble Inc. servers, on our websites and blogs.

When you visit a page with a live blog or live ticker, your browser establishes a direct connection to the server of this service provider. Your IP address and other device-related information will be transmitted to Scribble Inc. This service provider and its potential subcontractors are expressly committed to comply with data protection laws. https://www.scribblelive.com/legal/privacy-policy/

The live blog / live ticker page uses temporary cookies stored on your hard drive to allow you to access the interactive features of the live blog / live ticker. Twilight News does not employ any tracking cookies when embedding ScribbleLive content.

SmartFocus

Twilight News uses SmartFocus to send newsletters.

SmartFocus has his own tracking system. By adding some parameters to the URLs of the links used in messages, we know when a member clicks. And by placing a 1×1 pixel at the end of each message, we know if a member opened the message.
