Post Actuarial Outpost User Data & Privacy Statement

Hello everyone,

As you may have noticed, there has been a lot of talk in the news about social networks invading your privacy, and mining / selling your personal data. I just wanted to take this opportunity to reassure our community that we never have done this, and never will.

Even though DW Simpson owns the Actuarial Outpost, we made a firm commitment when we acquired this community to keep it completely separate from our recruiting business. We simply post jobs in the job posting forum, and advertisements at the top of the forum, just like we did prior to running the AO.

We take privacy very seriously, and will always be as open as possible to continually earn your trust. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to comment below, PM me, or send me an email at tom.troceen@dwsimpson.com.

Have a great day,

Tom

Do you guys keep login information?

It's bad enough everything I post never disappears and has timestamps.

I'm not sure what you mean by "login information" but if you clarify, I can give you a better answer.

There are no logs of who has logged in, when they log in, or how long they've used the site. The only information that is ever recorded is when you make a post, it is time stamped, and the IP address is stored with that post. I am the only person that has access to IP information, and I could count on one hand the number of times I've used it in the past 5+ years.

The only record of logins / access could be found in our server user logs, however, they are purged automatically several times per month (mainly because they are useless to us, and can grow very large in only a few days).

FYI doesn't mean your employer's IT department hasn't saved all that info itself. Just that the AO isn't ratting you out.

Wondering how much revenue DWS could get by posting, say, ads on mattresses in that mattress thread, or ads for infowars whenever bigb posts.

Just remember that anything that is visible on the forum at any time could be possibly stored by a third party.
