Default Hmmm... Vertical Scope - see the privacy statement

Hi Clubtread Admins... I was just wandering around the site and noticed the privacy statement... https://forums.clubtread.com/privacy-policy.php ...

So, I assume all of our information is being gathered in aggregate along with some 400+ other forum type websites that VerticalScope owns? I understand the need to keep the lights on and not complaining... just wondering out loud here and looking for confirmation.

Or... is this a legacy page from the initial installation of the forum?

http://www.verticalscope.com/

Thanks for your time and attention.

Hello,

I'm not quite sure what sort of confirmation you are looking for. If it's regarding the security of your account information, we don't share that unless certain circumstances listed in the "Information Sharing and Disclosure" section appears.

I suppose I did not complete my thoughts fully...

I was under the impression that the previous CT forum was a private member driven instance... and that this was just a re-skinning?

Did VerticalScope also own the previous CT forum?

No, Jim sold CT to vertical scope. New owners, new terms of use.

Jim ran CT more or less out of the goodness of his heart. Now this is a business.

Bring back Jim.

Resistance is futile. You have already been assimilated by the Borg/Skynet/Big Brother/Term of your choice. Full commercial, a drop in views they notice but pining for the old days is irrelevant.

Don't blame the admins, for them it's a job driven by performance numbers. If page views and The Google's opinion of the advertising value of the viewer go up, they've done their job.

One can only hope that the "value" of a huge thread of acrimonious flaming is sufficiently less than that of a beautiful well-written trip report or an informative collaborative where-to/how-to thread, so moderation can succeed. So far so good, fingers crossed.
