4. How we share the information we collect

We may share the information we collect, including your personal information, as follows:

4.1 Finding you and sharing within the fanflick Service

The fanflick Service is a social service which offers many ways to find, enjoy, and share content, and we enable and encourage users to explore who else is using the Service and their public profiles. Most of your fanflick information is or may be publicly available to others by default, such as your name and/or username, profile picture, type of subscription, your connections, and your activity, including the content you collect or share, and content you post, upload and/or contribute to the Service. Your activity on the Service may automatically appear in the activity feed of friends and users who follow you or your fanflick profile content.

We may use your public information to promote the Service and to help others find and follow you and/or your fanflick profile content, including through Facebook, Twitter and other integrated services.

Your information may also be used to notify others, including on the Service, via e-mail, and through Facebook and other integrated services, that you have joined fanflick, and about activity related to their fanflick profiles, content which they collect or share, or which we think otherwise may be of interest to them. Likewise, we may notify you about such activity of others.

Learn more about how to manage notifications, your publicly available information, and what you share with others in section 5 below.

4.2 Sharing with Facebook, Twitter and other services

If you connect to fanflick using Facebook or Twitter or otherwise connect your fanflick account to another integrated service, the default setting is generally that fanflick automatically shares your activity and activity-related stories with that service. You understand that such information may be attributed to your account on any integrated service and may be published on such service. See section 5 below to learn how you can disable sharing of information on Facebook, Twitter and other integrated services.

Fanflick also enables you to share a particular item of content, on an individual basis, to third party services or other fanflick users by using the share functionality in the Service. Please note that sharing of such content on a third party service may be posted as activity on the Service, regardless of your account settings. To share an individual item of content to a third party service, you’ll be prompted to enter your access credentials for that third party service. Fanflick may store your username and an access token or similar credentials obtained from the third party service, so that you are able to share particular items of content, on that third party service, on an individual basis, without entering your access credentials again.

You understand and agree that third parties’ use of information they collect from you is governed by their privacy policies, and fanflick’s use of such information is governed by this Privacy Policy.

4.3 Service providers and others

We may from time to time share your information with certain trusted business partners and third party service providers to enable them to perform functions and process user data on our behalf, consistent with section 3 above. Such third parties’ 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:

  1. to allow a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets;
  2. to respond to legal process (e.g. a court order or subpoena), if we believe in good faith that it is necessary to do so; to comply with requirements of mandatory applicable law; to protect the safety of any person; to protect the rights and property of fanflick, including any of our Terms and Conditions; and to address fraud, security or technical issues;
  3. to inform business partners about use of the Service and products and services made available through the Service, in the form of aggregated statistics or otherwise in a format which does not reveal your identity; and
  4. if you expressly opt in to such sharing.

You understand and agree that the privacy policies of third parties will govern all use of information that we provide to them under this section.

5. Your preferences

Through your settings, you can choose which communications you receive from us, manage your public information, and set your sharing preferences. However, please note that it may not be possible to make certain information private on the Service, including your name and/or username, profile picture, and other basic information, such as your following relationships. Such information and other information which are set to “public” in your settings, such as your collections, may be used, re-shared or linked to by others on the Service or others across the web, so please use fanflick carefully and manage your account settings regularly. Remember that if you make profile content private, others who already subscribe to or otherwise have the details of such content may still have access to it. Also keep in mind that collections and other content added to your profile may include personal information, such as username, which could enable other persons to find you in the fanflick Service or other services.

To change, customise, or limit access to or sharing of information collected from Facebook, Twitter or other integrated services, please visit your account settings on that service.

However, fanflick and fanflick companies will only process your information as described in this Privacy Policy in every country. You expressly consent to your information being used as set out in this section 6.
