Finding you and sharing within the Biptik Service
The Biptik 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 Biptik information is or may be publicly available to others by default, such as your name and/or username, profile picture, type of subscription, your following relationships and your activity, Third Party Applications you add or use and User Content you post, upload and/or contribute to the Service. Your activity on the Service will automatically appear in the activity feed of friends and users who follow you or your Biptik profile content.
Your information may also be used to notify others, including on the Service, via e-mail, and Other Integrated Services, that you have joined Biptik, and about activity related to their Biptik profiles, content which they follow, or which we think otherwise may be of interest to them.
Learn more about how to manage notifications, your publicly available information, and what you share with others in section 5 below.
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 playlists, may be used, re-shared or linked to by others on the Service or others across the web, so please use Biptik 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 playlists and other content added to your profile may include personal information, such as username, which could enable other persons to find you in the Biptik Service or other services.
We may display advertisements from third parties and other content which links to third party websites. We cannot control or be held responsible for third parties` privacy practices and content. Please read their privacy policies to find out how they collect and process your personal information.
