How is this information shared?
Your information is shared with others in the following ways:
Sharing on POPOLOGY® Networks
People and accounts you share and communicate with.
When you share and communicate using our Products, you choose the scale and demographic of audience you desire for your POPcast® share. For example, to communicate with people or businesses, those people and businesses can see the content you send. Your network can also see actions you have taken on our Products, including engagement with ads and sponsored content. We also let other accounts see who has viewed the POPcast® you created.
Public Information can be seen by anyone, on or off our Products, including if they don’t have an account. This includes your username; any information you share with a public audience; information in your deployed POPcast®; and content you share on POPOLOGY® Networks. You, other people using POPOLOGY® Networks, and we can provide access to or send public information to anyone on or off our Products, including in other POPOLOGY® Products and Services, in search results, or through tools and APIs. Public information can also be seen, accessed, re-shared or downloaded through third- party services such as search engines, APIs, and offline media such as TV, and by apps, websites and other services that integrate with our Products.
Content others share or re-share about you.
You should consider who you choose to share with, because people who can see your activity on our Products can choose to share it with others on and off our Products, including people and businesses outside the audience you shared with. For example, when you share a POPcast® or send a message to specific friends or accounts, they can download, screen record, content to others across or off our Products, in person or in virtual reality experiences. Also, when you comment on someone else’s post or react to their content, your comment or reaction is visible to anyone who can see the other person’s content, and that person can change the audience later.
People can also use our Products to create and share content about you with the audience they choose. For example, people can share a photo of you in a POPcast®, mention or tag you at a location in a POPcast®, or share information about you in their POPcast® or messages. If you are uncomfortable with what others have shared about you on our Products.
Information about your active status or presence on our Products.
People in your networks can see signals telling them whether you are active on our Products, or when you last used our Products.
Apps, websites, and third-party integrations on or using our Products. When you choose to use third-party apps, websites, or other services that use, or are integrated with, our Products, they can receive information about what you post or share. For example, when you play a game with your POPOLOGIST® friends or use a POPOLOGY® Share button on a website, the game developer or website can receive information about your activities in the game or receive a comment or link that you share from the website on POPOLOGY® Networks. Also, when you download or use such third-party services, they can access your public profile on POPOLOGY® Networks, and any information that you share with them. Apps and websites you use may receive your list of POPOLOGIST® friends if you choose to share it with them. But apps and websites you use will not be able to receive any other information about your POPOLOGIST® friends from you. Information collected by these third-party services is subject to their own terms and policies, not this one.
Devices and operating systems providing native versions of POPOLOGY® Networks will have access to all information you choose to share with them, including information your friends share with you, so they can provide our core functionality to you.
Sharing with Third-Party Partners.
We work with third-party partners who help us and improve our Products or who use POPOLOGY® Networks to grow their businesses, which makes it possible to operate our companies and provide free services to people around the world. We don’t sell any of your information to anyone, and we never will. We also impose strict restrictions on how our partners can use and disclose the data we provide. Here are the types of third parties we share information with:
Partners who use our analytics services.
We provide aggregated statistics and insights that help people and businesses understand how people are engaging with their posts, listings, images, videos and other content on and off the POPOLOGY® Products.
We provide advertisers with reports about the kinds of people seeing their ads and how their ads are performing, but we don’t share information that personally identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us permission. For example, we provide general demographic and interest information to advertisers (for example, that an ad was seen by a man between the ages of 28 and 32 who lives in Rome and likes software engineering) to help them better understand their audience. We also confirm which POPmercial® ads led you to make a purchase or take an action with an advertiser.

When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as your photos and status updates, and you won’t be able to recover that information later. Information that others have shared about you isn’t part of your account and won’t be deleted. If you don’t want to delete your account but want to temporarily stop using the Products, you can deactivate your account instead.
How do we respond to legal requests or prevent harm?
We access, preserve and share your information with regulators, law enforcement or others:
• In response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States when we have a good-faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards.
• When we have a good-faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud, unauthorized use of the Products, violations of our terms or policies, or other harmful or illegal activity; to protect ourselves (including our rights, property or Products), you or others, including as part of investigations or regulatory inquiries; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, if relevant, we provide information to and receive information from third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud, abuse and other harmful activity on and off our Products.
Information we receive about you (including financial transaction data related to purchases made within POPOLOGY® Networks) can be accessed and preserved for an extended period when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations of possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also retain information from accounts disabled for terms violations for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other term violations.
