We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners, or others.

4.1 Sharing with Supported Platforms

If you connect your Poplr account to a Supported Platform, then you may be allowed to share your activity and activity-related stories with Supported Platform. You understand that such information may be attributed to your account on Supported Platforms and may be published on such Supported Platform either directly by you or by other users. See section 5 below to learn how you can disable sharing of information on Supported Platforms. You understand and agree that Supported Platforms’ or other third parties’ use of information they collect from you is governed by their privacy policies, and Poplr’s use of such information is governed by this Privacy Policy.

4.2 Sharing with Third Party Content Providers

To personalize your experience, we may share some information we have collected about you with providers of Third Party Content, such as geographic information, your Poplr profile information, if any, settings and technical data.

4.3 Third Party Services Providers and Others

We may from time to time engage other companies and third party service providers to perform functions and process user data, consistent with section 3 above. Third party service providers’ processing of user data will always be subject to security and confidentiality obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy and applicable law.

4.4 Other Sharing

In addition to the above, we may also share your information to third parties for these limited purposes:

You agree and understand that the privacy policies of the third parties will govern all use of information that we provide to it or that it collects from you.

5. Your Preferences

In the future, Poplr may enable you to choose which communications you receive from us, manage your public profile information, if any, and set your sharing preferences.

6. Links/Third Party Websites

We cannot control or be held responsible for third parties’ privacy practices and content. Please read the respective third party’s privacy policies to find out how they collect and process your personal information.

7. Security

We are committed to protecting our users’ information. Your password protects your user account, so you should use a unique and strong password, limit access to your device, or computer and browser, and sign off after having used the Poplr Services. While we take reasonable data protection precautions, no security measures are completely secure, and we do not guarantee the security of user information at any time.

8. Age Requirements

Poplr requires that all users be 21 years of age. The Services are therefore not directed to children under the age of 21, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 21. If you are under 21 years of age, do not use the Services and do not provide any personal information to us. If we discover that a child under 21 has provided us with personal information, we will delete it.
