Privacy Policy, Terms & Conditions

This page describes our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

While Trustium makes best efforts to provide reasonable and accurate categorization of news articles, automatically rating articles is prone to inherent subjectivity and error. Users are encouraged to use a variety of decision-making sources and apply their own judgement on which articles to consume.

Information Collection and Use

We collect several different types of information to provide and improve our service to you.


We collect the text from news articles you have visited. We collect this information to provide an analysis of the news article and to improve the service, specifically to help train our Machine Learning model.

We do not link news article information to you in any way except when you voluntarily submit feedback.

If you submit feedback and have created a membership account, that feedback is linked to your personally identifiable information.


We collect personal information about you to create your account and track your subscriptions.

We do not sell your data to anyone, nor do we share it outside of Trustium.

We do not store any personally identifiable information about you unless you submit it to us during account creation.
