Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Website. We maintain presences on social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
  • Links to third-party websites. Our Websites include links to other websites, whose privacy practices may be different from ours.

5.     Disclosure of Information

We may share and disclose your Personal Information to the following types of third parties for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy (for purposes of this section, “you” and “your” refer to Members, Contacts, and Visitors unless otherwise indicated):

  • Our service providers: Sometimes, we share your information with our third-party service providers, who help us provide and support our Services and other business-related functions.


For example, if it is necessary to provide Members something they have requested (like enable a feature such as social media profiles), then we may share Members’ or Contacts’ Personal Information with a service provider for that purpose. Other examples include analyzing data, hosting data, engaging technical support for our Services, processing payments, and delivering content.


These third-party service providers enter into a contract that requires them to use your Personal Information only for the provision of services to us and in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. However, this excludes any information that (1) is generally known or available to the public prior to its disclosure; (2) information that is generally known to us prior to its disclosure as evidenced by written and dated materials; (3) information that becomes available to the public, through no fault of ours, after its disclosure to us; (4) information that is disclosed to us by a third party having a bona fide right to do so; or (5) information that is completely developed by us independent of the relationship contemplated by this Privacy Policy. If a third-party processes user data for its own benefit, that processing is subject to the third party’s privacy policy and applicable law.


  • Advertising partners: We may partner with third-party advertising networks and exchanges to display advertising on our Websites or to manage and serve our advertising on other sites and may share Personal Information of Members and Visitors with them for this purpose. We do not sell or market to any of our Members’ Contacts.


  • Any competent law enforcement body, regulatory body, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (a) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (b) to exercise, establish, or defend our legal rights, or (c) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person.


  • Third-Party Platforms: If you use our Websites to link to a third-party social media platform, application, or website, you acknowledge and agree that we may automatically share your activity with that service, including the content that you use, that such information may be connected to your account on that third-party service, and that the information may be published by that service.


  • Our subsidiaries and affiliates.


  • A buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divesture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which Personal Information held by us about Service users is among the assets being transferred.


  • With your consent, to parties that you authorize. For example, if you give us an email address to use the “email a friend” feature of the Service, we will transmit the contents of that email and your email address to the recipient.


  • If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of our Websites’ users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.


  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.

6.     Our Security

We take appropriate and reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, considering the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information (PII).
