III. How is this information shared? Your information is shared with others in the following ways:
Sharing on our Products
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’ve share with a public audience. Public information can also be seen, accessed, reshared, or downloaded through third-party services such as search engines, and APIs.
Content others share or reshare 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. Also, when you comment on someone else’s post, your comment is visible to anyone who can see the other person’s content.
Sharing with Third-Party Partners We work with third-party partners who help us provide and improve our Products. 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.
Partners who use our analytics services. We provide aggregated statistics and insights that help people and businesses understand how people are engaging with posts, videos, and other content on and off our Products.
Advertisers. We provide advertisers with reports about the kinds of people seeing their ads and how their ads are performing. We don’t share information that personally identifies you (information such as your name or email address).
Measurement Partners. We share information about you with companies that aggregate it to provide analytics and measurement reports to our partners.
Vendors and service providers. We provide information and content to vendors and service providers who support our business, such as by providing technical infrastructure services, analyzing how our Products are used, providing customer service, facilitating payments or conducting surveys.
Law enforcement or legal requests. We share information with law enforcement or in response to legal requests.
IV. How can I manage information about me? We provide you with the ability to access, rectify, port and erase your data.
We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services or until your account is deleted - whichever comes first. This is a case-by-base determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs.
When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as your photos or posts, 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.
V. 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 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 our 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 activities on and off our Products.
Information we receive about you 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 abuse or other term violations
VI. How will we notify you of changes to this policy? We will notify you before we make changes to this policy and give you the opportunity to review the revised policy before you choose to continue using our Products.
