About Bool Connect
Bool connect is a product of Scope Research and Consulting
, a small firm that offers search related services and products. This search platform combines the best aspects of BOOL
(Boolean string building and X-Ray searching) and the Boolean String Bank
(crowd-sourced Boolean strings and strategies), with additional easy to use features, information storage and the opportunity to connect with talented search professionals around the globe. Bool connect is currently the only paid membership product offered by Scope Labs and since it offers access to crowdsourcing information from Boolean String Bank members, all members require a Boolean String Bank account and a subscription plan to get started.
Bool connect only requires basic user information such as a valid email address, username and password to get started. All other information is voluntary, the majority of which are collected when users sign up to the Boolean String Bank.
Through Bool connect and the Boolean String Bank, users can share Boolean search strings and strategies with other members. These strings will be displayed along with the associated usernames; email addresses will be not be displayed. Through Bool connect, users can send messages to string contributors that would display the sender's email address, but not the receiver's. Receivers can then choose to respond at their discretion, thus revealing their email address to the sender. This method ensures that the decison to share a user's email address is up to the user. Please consider using the Boolean String Bank forum for platform based communication that avoids email exchanges.
Bool connect does not share your credentials with advertisers and other third parties.
The Bool connect platform employs safeguards consistent with industry standards and applicable law to help prevent unauthorized access, loss, disclosure, modification or destruction of the information we collect. Sensitive information such as user passwords is hashed and encrypted and is not ever relayed through emails. While we are committed to ensuring the security of such information, we can not 100% guarantee that we will never fall victim to malicious hackers. Consequently, we cannot warrant or guarantee the complete security of the information in our possession. In the event of a breach, we will notify users and relevant authorities as soon as possible. In the meantime, users can help with security by choosing complex passwords that attackers cannot easily generate as well as periodically change those passwords. All members are encouraged to contact us and other authorities if they suspect their information has been compromised.
