Privacy Policy

Information we collect

We collect and associate information with your profile in multiple ways:

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect us and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content. We may use the name you provide for your Profile across all of the services we offer that require a profile. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your profile so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Profile information, such as your name and photo. When you contact us, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we'll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other services of ours- for example to make it easier to share things with people you know. We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy. We process personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.

Transparency and choice

Different people have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can: Review and control certain types of information tied to your profile; Use our editor to see and adjust how your profile appears to particular individuals; Control who you share information with; and Take information out of many of our services.

Information you share

Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines and other companies or systems. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.

Accessing and updating your personal information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it - unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes). Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

Information we share

We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of ours unless one of the following circumstances apply:

Information security

We work hard to protect ourselves and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In terms of security:

Third Parties

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including sites that may be displayed to you in results, sites that may include or use our services, or other sites linked from our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who use our services, and who may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies that may affect your privacy.

Enforcement

We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. We also adhere to several self regulatory frameworks. When we receive formal written complaints, we may contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

Changes

We may change our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will not reduce your coverage under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes).
