  1. SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION

 

We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside Infields without your consent, except as noted in this Policy.

 

Parties with whom we may share your information:

  • We may share your information with other Infields users such as information about your name and username, follower and following lists, hashtags you follow, any additional information you have consented for us to share, content you post or send. Content you post or send will be shared with other users, but how widely your content is shared depends on your profile setting, the profile setting of the user you are sharing your content with, the privacy setting of the user’s content you are sharing with, and the privacy setting of the content you share. For example, posting a public photo clip on an open post from a user who has a public profile will result in public exposure to your photo. Posting a private photo clip would instead only share it with the poster and the users tagged to the past. Posting a follower clip to the same post would only share it with the poster, any tagged users and your followers who can see the post. You can choose to hide certain information such as your follower and following lists or hiding yourself from others follower/following lists by actively selecting said options under the account options of the ‘Settings menu’ located in ‘my profile’.
  • Any public content from public hashtags and public profiles may be shared with all Infields users and the general public. Once your post receives a certain number of likes it may be shared with users via the popular tab. Also, closed posts from public profiles may be shared with all Infields users and the general public who follow you.
  • We may share User Content and your information (including but not limited to, information from cookies, log files, device identifiers, location data, and usage data) with businesses that are legally part of the same group of companies that Infields is part of, or that become part of that group ("Affiliates"). Affiliates may use this information to help provide, understand, and improve the Services and Affiliates' own services. But these Affiliates will honor the choices you make about who can see your photos and videos.
  • We also may share your information as well as information from tools like cookies, log files, and device identifiers and location data, with third-party organizations that help us provide the Services to you ("Service Providers"). Our Service Providers will be given access to your information as is reasonably necessary to provide the Services under reasonable confidentiality terms.
  • We may also share certain information such as cookie data with third-party advertising partners. This information would allow third-party ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.
  • We may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties. We may also combine your information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with you and share that aggregated information.

 

Parties with whom you may choose to share your User Content:

  • Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Services, such as User Content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings that you have set and or will set during the process of posting the information or content to the Services.
  • Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Services by accessing another user’s content (for example posting a public clip to another user’s post) becomes available to the public as controlled by any applicable privacy settings that the user has set or will set afterwards. In cases where applicable, the other user’s privacy settings and your privacy settings may combine to control the public availability of your content.
  • Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose to other users by tagging the user(s) to the content becomes available to the public and can be shared by the tagged user(s).
  • Your privacy settings on the Services consists of your profile setting and the individual privacy settings of the User Content you post. To change your privacy setting, please change your profile setting. Your privacy setting refers to your profile setting within the app, Public or Private. Once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User Content may be re-shared by others.
  • Subject to your profile and privacy settings, any User Content that you make public is searchable by other Users.
  • If you remove information that you posted to the Services, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Services, or if other Users or third parties using the Infields Services have copied or saved that information.

 

What happens in the event of a change of control:

  • If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of Infields or our assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction like a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation), your information, User Content and any other information collected through the Services may be among the items sold or transferred. You will continue to own your User Content. The buyer or transferee will have to honor the commitments we have made in this Privacy Policy and will be required to provide adequate notice should they alter the Privacy Policy should they wish to change said commitments regarding content that remains for a reasonable time after said notice is provided.

 

Responding to legal requests and preventing harm:

  • We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request If we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to (i) detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity (ii) protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations (iii) and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm.

Inactivation protocols automatically inactivate your user content (i) after you have reached a maximum limit on the amount of posts that you are actively sharing (currently set to 40) (ii) after we detect that a wire has been viewed by its intended audience (iii) after you have reached a maximum limit on the amount number of clips you are actively sharing and/or after your created clips have reached the time limit for active status (currently set to 3 days maximum). Deletion protocols automatically delete inactive user content after preset time periods or data limits are reached. In some cases, user content may be deleted before this time if it violates the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy or has been reported by multiple users. In other cases, user content may be stored beyond the protocol limits if necessary to comply with Section 3.
  • Understand and remember that users who see the content you provide can always save it using any number of techniques including screenshots, in-app functionality, or any other image-capture technology. It’s also possible, as with any digital information, that someone might be able to access messages forensically or find them in a device’s temporary storage. Keep in mind that, while our systems are designed to carry out our deletion practices automatically, we cannot promise that deletion will occur within a specific timeframe. And we may also retain certain information in backup for a limited period of time or as required by law.
