You may be able to opt-out of such disclosure through the Services or by making a request at (company email id). We Do Not Share Personal Information With Advertisers. We do, however, allow advertisers to request that their advertisements are directed at certain users (e.g., users in a certain geographic location, age, gender and / or with certain interests). In the event that you interact with a certain Advertisement, the advertiser (or the company with which the advertiser works, for example, its ad agency or an advertising network) may determine certain characteristics about you.
e. Other Disclosures
We offer you interfaces that allow you to connect with third party services and social networking services such as Facebook and Twitter (collectively, “SNS”) through our Services. We will work with the SNS’s application protocol interface (better known as their developer API) in a way that allows you to authorize us to access your account on that SNS on your behalf. In order to provide this authorization, you will not provide us with your user name or password to the SNS, but you will need to login to that SNS directly through our Site. Once authorized by you, the SNS will provide us a token that allows the SNS to recognize us when we ask, on your behalf, for access to your account information or to post information. You will be able to revoke our access to any SNS Site at any time by amending the appropriate settings from within your account settings on the applicable SNS, though such revocation may limit the Services we are able to provide you. In addition, when you engage in certain activities within the Services, those activities may be automatically posted to your Facebook and Twitter feeds. We allow you to disable this functionality at any time by logging into your profile and selecting the option to disable this feature.
We offer you choices regarding the collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information: We will periodically send you free newsletters and e-mails that promote the use of our Services.
