Generally speaking, TruuTube.com tracks the minimal amount of information necessary to perform its intended functions. This means that for "content creators," TruuTube.com tracks user logins, user emails and other information necessary to operate and maintain that account. For end users who are watching videos but not uploading videos, very little information is tracked: Mostly just web server log information such as IP address, session cookies (which expire quickly) and a list of the videos which were access. This information, however, is not maintained across multiple sessions, and because end users never log in, we do not possess any persistent record of the videos a particular end user watches, nor the search terms they are entering. TruuTube.com does not, under any conditions, sell any information about its users to any third party entity of any kind. Furthermore, TruuTube.com does not share any information about its users with any deep state / intelligence community operations unless ordered to do so by a legally valid court order. Because we are located in the United States, we must comply with U.S. court orders. Where permissible by law, we will make reasonable efforts to alert individual users when a law enforcement / court order request is made for their information. When you sign up for or use TruuTube.com as a content creator (a video uploader), you give us certain information voluntarily.
