Privacy policy

Sole use of information that you provide:
NYR IndyApp privacy statement

Registration information used on the IndyApp: Name, E-mail, Password and First half of Postcode will never be shared with any parties outside of the IndyApp community.

All IndyApp users can remove themselves from the platform at any time using the ‘Member delete’ function found on the IndyApp ‘Settings page’. This function automatically deletes all the user’s private information and cancels any local group memberships. Only the registered user can activate this function on their app.

User content such as sent private messages, public forum posts and campaign resource button recommendations which have been voluntarily shared on the platform prior to activation of the ‘Member delete’ function will remain published, but the user’s source data file will be completely deleted. All users remain in ultimate control of their information.

User Registration Information and its use:

Name: This allows users of the IndyApp platform to be identified by fellow members.

E-mail: This will be used for each users ‘password reset’ function. As a security precaution (and only when requested) an automatically generated ‘Reset password link’ will be sent to this email.

User name: This will match your email and is used to allow the IndyApp platform to recognise each user as a unique individual.

Password: This is required to ensure security for each individual IndyApp user. It is used in conjunction with your unique user name (email) each time you login afresh.

Postcode: Only the first half of a user’s postcode is required.

This ensures each user remains geographically anonymised within an average area of approx. 5 square miles. However, this still allows the NYR IndyApp platform a general understanding of the distribution of its membership countrywide.

This ability is important, as it allows us to match IndyApp membership distribution to the IndyApp’s existing local Indygroup network. We can then use this information to encourage new local group formation wherever there is the potential local IndyApp support to sustain such groups. This will obviously help increase the campaigning power and local reach of the movement, especially during the heat of the new IndyRef campaigning.

Combining this with the IndyApp’s private messaging function also allows participating groups the ability to stay in contact with all those pro Indy supporters that download the IndyApp and are located within each particular group’s general catchment area.

The ‘Mute function’ gives each IndyApp user complete control of the private messages they do, or do not, receive.
