For Users Contributing to Science Twitter Archive Project

OpenCheck has you login with your Twitter and ORCID accounts so that we can authenticate you and get information necessary for perform this service. We never ask for or receive your passwords. OpenCheck stores exactly this set of information:

OpenCheck attempts to request the minimum permissions necessary from Twitter (see Twitter developer app permissions -- we use "read only" and do not request email address) and ORCID. Also, we don't store access tokens permanently -- they are only associated with your web session. If you (optionally) provide an email address at the end of the flow, you become a Registered User.

For Registered Users

If you create an account, we require some basic information at the time of account creation, including your name and email address.

Most of the information, outside your email address, is part of a public record, inline with the purpose of this website: to public public records of identities and credentials.

"User Personal Information" is any information about one of our users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify him or her. Information such as a real name and email address are examples of "User Personal Information."

User Personal Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information. We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, improve, and optimize our website and service.
