Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for Websites & Digital Media

Last Updated:

This is the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for the Panquake.com websites (hereafter, “Websites”) and Digital Media properties (hereafter, “Digital Media”) administered by Talk Liberation Ehf. (hereafter, “Talk Liberation Iceland”) with intellectual property owned by Talk Liberation CIC Limited (hereafter, “Talk Liberation CIC”). In this document, “we”, “our”, and “us” refers to Talk Liberation Iceland and its administration of the Websites and Digital Media (including digital products such as newsletters, video content, and community memberships).

This policy does not refer to the Panquake software product, and should in no way be construed to refer to that software product and the corresponding social network.

The Talk Liberation Iceland team upholds strict internal policies against unauthorized disclosure or use of personal information. We, at all times and wherever possible, seek to actively avoid the collection of personal information. Where no other alternative exists, we utilize some third party services who may have differing practices and standards. Further details are below. When you engage those third-party services you become subject to their privacy policy rather than ours.

We take privacy and security extremely seriously and the preservation of your digital self is important to us. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy or our use of data, please get in touch with us at privacy@talkliberation.com.

Website Traffic

Panquake.com does not utilize cookies or collect personally-identifiable information (PII). We gather high-level traffic statistics through Panquake.com that do not contain user identities using a local installation of GoAccess.

TalkLiberation.com E-mail

Information volunteered to Talk Liberation Iceland via email may be retained at our discretion in readable form for as long as necessary to complete our responsibilities to you. The email itself may be retained in an archival form, but not for longer than is necessary or as required under applicable law (such as in the event of a legal dispute). At no time is the information of the email sender distributed or sold for any reason. We do not maintain a marketing database or mailing list. Email communications are engaged in one-to-one on an as-needed basis.

Third-Party Services

Some third party services do store information related to donations, subscriptions, or memberships on their servers. This information is shared by you with these third parties over a secure connection under legal agreement that governs its use and retention. These policies are not authored, influenced, or implemented by us. In particular:

Vimeo

We utilize Vimeo as our primary platform for storing and showcasing unique video content created by us. Please refer to the Vimeo privacy policy for more information about their collection and processing of data, including California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) compliance.

Substack

We utilize Substack as our primary platform for publishing Talk Liberation - Your Worldwide Internet Report, a weekly news service providing longform and video content about the hot online topics and Internet issues that affect us all. Substack requires collection of subscriber data. Please refer to the Substack privacy policy for more information about their collection and processing of data, including California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) compliance.

GoGetFunding

The Panquake.com build and campaign is 100% crowdfunded. We do not accept, solicit, or receive any funding from corporate or commercial entities including venture capital funds, security agencies of any kind, or governments. We utilize GoGetFunding as our platform for receiving donations. GoGetFunding requires collection of donor data. Please refer to the GoGetFunding privacy policy for more information about their collection and processing of data, including California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) compliance.

Stripe

Substack and GoGetFunding utilize Stripe to process orders. Stripe requires collection of data. Please refer to the Stripe privacy policy for more information about their collection and processing of data, including California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) compliance.

PayPal

GoGetFunding provides a facility to process donations via PayPal. PayPal requires collection of data. Despite consistent efforts and full compliance by our relevant staff members, since May 13, 2021 PayPal has failed to transmit funds collected from our donors to us. Their processes and explanations have been circular, nonsensical, and remain unresolved. Thus we have been left with no choice but to sever the PayPal integration on our GoGetFunding page and are advising our donors to pursue any remedy available to them to repossess their funds. Please refer to the PayPal privacy policy for more information about their collection and processing of data, including California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) compliance.

Subscriber Conduct Statement

By subscribing to our digital products (such as newsletters, video content, and community memberships), you agree to abide by Substack's content moderation policy. Substack's moderation guidelines have been widely reported as both broad and permissive. For further information, please refer to this article. No refund of donations, subscriptions, or membership fees will be given to donors who violate Substack policies.

Changes to this Policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this Policy at any time and without notice. However, we do elect to notify our community via our social media channels whenever this notice is modified. Should the changes affect processing activities performed on the basis of a customer/donor’s consent, we will collect new consent from these individuals, where required.
