Poool is a company that facilitates access to online contents.
Quality journalism has a price. This is why a lot of publishers restrict access to a part of their articles, only granting full access to their paying subscribers.
At Poool, we think that everybody deserves access to the best information possible.
This is why we developed a dynamic paywall: to help journalism thrive and to allow readers to have easy access to quality articles. To be precise, we’re offering simple compensation choices to fairly unlock the article you want to read.
We may also collect information about you when you register to use one of our products or when you explicitely provide contact information. The information you will have to provide may include your first name, your last name, email address, your job position and your company.
