Information Collection and Use
When you visit our websites, use our applications, services and tools or reply to our ads or other content, we automatically collect the information you sent to us. This information is associated with you personally only when you sign in as registered user or you have provided your e-mail address or other data to identify you when using our sites, applications, services.
If you choose to create an Automass account, you must provide us some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, or phone number. Your name and username are always listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. You can create and manage multiple Automass accounts.
You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable certain account features. If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages to that number from us. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications. You may use your settings for email notifications to control notifications you receive from Automass. You may also unsubscribe from notifications by editing your Automass account.
Your privacy settings control whether others can contact you within interest to your activity on our website via email address or phone number.
You may choose to provide us with additional information to help improve and personalize your experience across our Services. We may later personalize content, such as making suggestions, based on your address. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address, and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your account on our Services to your account on another service, the other service may send us information that you authorize for use in the Services.
Automass is primarily designed to help you share/publish information/content/announcements with the world. Most of the information you provide us is information you are asking us to make public. You may provide us with profile information such as your location, or picture(s).
Additionally, your public information includes the announcements; the metadata provided with announcements; information about your account, such as creation time, language, country, and time zone; and the lists with content that you create. Automass broadly and instantly disseminates your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services, including search engines, developers, and publishers that integrate Automass content into their services, and organizations. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public. We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through the Services public for as long as you do not delete it, but we generally give you settings or features, to make the information more private if you want.
For certain profile information fields we provide you with visibility settings to select who can see this information in your profile. If you provide us with profile information and you don’t see a visibility setting, that information is public. You can change the language and time zone associated with your account at any time.
