How is this information shared?
Content shared by you:
Public Content i.e., any content you post/Hie on your user profile or on another user’s profile, such as a post comment is accessible to everyone, including search engines. Any information you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Platform, including your profile page information, is accessible to anyone. When you submit, post/Hie or share/spread the content on the Platform, you have an option to decide who all can say/ comment on the post or who all can spread /share your post/Hie. Based on the settings that you choose while sharing a post/Hie, the public on the Platform may end up sharing or reposting your post/Hie with others on and off our Platform, including people outside the audience you shared it with, for example, when you share a post/Hie or send a message to a specific friend or account, they can download that content, take a screenshot of it, or share/spread it in person or in virtual reality experiences on or outside the Platform. Also, when you comment/say on someone else's post/Hie or respond to their content, your comment or reaction can be seen by anyone who can see the other person's content. Other users can also use the Platform to create content about you and share/spread it with the audience they choose. For example, people might share a photo of you in a post, mention you in a post, or tag you in a post, or share information about you in their posts or messages. You can post any content from our Platform on Facebook and Twitter. Similarly, you can use WhatsApp or any other application on your mobile device to share the content on our Platform. We do not control and shall not be liable for the manner, in which such persons (with whom you choose to share content via any sharing options, such as WhatsApp or Facebook or Twitter, available on the Platform) use the information that you share with them.
Sharing with our group company:
We may share your personal information with any member of our Group. The term "Group" shall mean any entity that is controlled by us, or any entity that is in control of us, or any entity that is under common control with us, whether directly or indirectly.
We provide advertisers with reports on the types of people who see their ads and how their ads are performing. We do not share information that identifies you personally (such as your name, contact details or any information to identify who you are) without your permission but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that any given number of women in a specified age group clicked on their advertisement on any given day).

Third Party Embeds:
Some of the content that you see displayed on the Platform is not hosted by the Platform. These "embeds" are hosted by a third-party and embedded in the Platform. For example: YouTube or Vimeo videos, Imgur or Giphy gifs, SoundCloud audio files, Twitter tweets, or Scribd documents that appear within a post/Hie on the Platform. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a Platform post page with a YouTube video embedded in it, YouTube receives data about your activity).
Third Party Links:
The Platform may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers, Affiliates and/or any other websites or mobile applications. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites or mobile applications.
We have in place appropriate technical and security measures to secure the information collected by us. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a username and password which enables you to access the Platform, you are responsible for keeping these details confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
You are free to remove or delete content from your account/ profile at any point in time. However, the history of your activities and account on our Platform remains available to us.
You may correct, amend, add or delete Personal Information from your account at any time by logging in and visiting your profile page. As noted above, you may opt out from unwanted e-mail communications from us by just clicking on the un-subscribe link at the bottom of that received email. However, until your account is deleted you will continue to receive all system e-mails.
You even have a right to either temporarily deactivate your account or permanently delete your account on the Platform.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
