Three Strand Productions (DBA, We Speak) owns and operates the social media platform, “We Speak.” The Company is registered and licensed at the Secretary of State’s office in the State of Washington (604385028).
We Speak was established, in part, in reaction to the privacy excesses you read or hear about every day on the part of the social media platforms so many have come to depend on for not only communications with friends and family but, as the source of daily news, opinion, and other information once primarily delivered by newspapers, magazines, radio, and television.
Three Strand Productions (We Speak) is dedicated to creating, and maintaining, a level of respect and honor for your privacy that will set the bar for integrity for the future of the internet.
Respecting and honoring your privacy begins with offering you (the user) a clear statement regarding the kinds of information We Speak collects as part of our interaction with you:
First, We Speak is based on the kind of proprietary platform without which no social media outlet can operate. A platform is a software tool used to write applications and run them. The platform includes software tools, compilers, class libraries, utilities, and everything else needed to develop the applications necessary to provide our service, as well as a runtime engine for executing the applications. Virtually nothing on the internet can exist without the use of a platform similar to ours.
We Speak, and every other social media platform in existence, relies on information collected as you utilize our site to fine tune our platform to assure we offer the best platform in the world for your use. If we did not collect that information, the site would become useless to you in a matter of weeks. We collect and track information to improve our site; we do not collect or track information for the purpose of selling that information, we are nearly unique in that respect; as you’ve read in the news, many if not most social media sites profit significantly through the selling of your information.
If, for any reason, our policy regarding the sale of information must change due to either regulatory or operational needs, you will be informed of the change and will be given the option to opt out of your participation in the We Speak community.
The only exception to our notification protocol would be a legally delivered request from law enforcement requiring us to turn over information as a matter of law, other legally binding legal actions, or a properly prepared and delivered warrant.
A policy change by We Speak;
The purchase of either the company or the platform;
A merger with another company;
Upgrades and updates to the We Speak platform;
Other actions impacting the interaction between We Speak and its users.
Second, robust protection of your privacy begins with YOU. Nothing anyone has ever posted to a social media outlet on the internet is ever truly private. If it can be seen on a screen, it can be copied, using three or four keystrokes, and used for the purposes, for better or worse, of whomever took the screenshot. Remember, there is nothing you put on the web, even if people say it will disappear, that can’t be captured and saved. To be safe, refrain from putting anything out there you would not want to stand behind at a later date. To repeat, don’t put embarrassing things on the web! They will always find a way back to you.
Your content as posted on We Speak is for your use and how you share content is up to you; it’s your responsibility to decide how to share that content.
