We may enter into agreements with companies to offer co-branded products and/or services via the Service (“Third Party Companies”). Where you purchase these co-branded products and/or services, we may provide your personal information to a Third Party Company where necessary in connection with the purchase or you have consented to us doing so. Because we do not control the privacy practices of these third-party companies, you should read and understand their privacy policies, which we or they will make available to you before we provide your personal information to them.

If you have enabled features or functionality that connect the Service to a third-party platform or social media network (such as by logging in to the Service using your account with the third party, providing your API key or similar access token for the Service to a third party, or otherwise linking your account with the Service to a third-party’s services), we may disclose the personal information that you authorized us to share. We do not control the third party’s use of your personal information.

You may also be able to submit content to the Service (such as comments, reviews, surveys, blogs, photos, and videos), and we will display your name, username, and a link to your user profile along with the content you submit. We do not control how other users or third parties use any personal information that you make available to other users or the public. Once you have posted information publicly, while you will still be able to edit and delete it on our Service, you will not be able to edit or delete such information cached, collected, and stored elsewhere by others (e.g., search engines).
We may disclose your personal information to professional advisors, such as lawyers, bankers, auditors, and insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to us.

If you choose to opt out of targeted advertisements, you will still see advertisements online but they may not be relevant to you.
