Upon registration to Sportag, you will have created your profile and privacy settings. The users you authorize in your privacy settings will be able to view your profile, name, email and pictures, so you can keep in touch with fellow users of Sportag. If Sportag begins offering new services that we think may be useful to you, we may use your name and email to inform you of these services.
Sportag mainly uses your personal information so you can see it whenever you use our services, so you can edit your privacy settings, and so the users you authorize will be able to see it as well. If you choose to make your authorization settings public on your message board for example, other users of Sportag will be able to add to your profile.
Users belonging to the authorized networks designated in your privacy settings (such as schoolmates, neighbours or friends of friends) will be able to view your profile. Your name, the names of your networks, personal files (such as thumbnails of your pictures) will be made searchable on the Sportag network, and part of this information may be available to a third party search engine, so your friends can find you and invite you to join their networks. Users will only see your name and will not be able to retrive your account information, unless users are acquainted with you (friends, friends of friends or people belonging to your networks etc) or if you authorize them to review your profile.
Sportag may send you notices as part of our services. For example, if a friend sends you a new message, or someone leaves a message on your board, you will receive an email reminder.
Normally you can inform the webmaster if you wish to stop receiving this kind of mail, but even if you choose not to receive any voluntary email notices, Sportag is still authorized to send you notices about your account.
Sportag may use your account information but will not disclose your identity to any third parties. Our use of users’ information is to estimate the size of certain networks (such as bands or movie-affliated networks) and to provide users with personalized advertisements. We hope this will allow us to serve you better and improve your experience with Sportag. You will have a better understanding of the world around you, and advertisements can be tailored to suit your interests. For example, if you list your favourite movies on your account, we may notify you of similar movies playing at theatres near you, but we will not disclose your identity to film distribution companies.
To complete your personal profile, we may collect personal data from other sources, including but not limited to news, networks (such as blog rings), instant information systems, Sportag staff, and other users of Sportag. Normally you can choose not to let us collect this type of data, and you can take steps (such as removing tags and links to your photos) to prevent this type of data being linked to your profile.
