or "Sirqul") and from our partners and other third parties. For example, you send us information when you use Sirqul from our website or
access Sirqul from any Sirqul powered application. When using any of our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage,
you authorize Sirqul to use your information in the United States and any other country where Sirqul operates.
Information Collection and Use
Sirqul collects and uses your information below to provide our Services and to measure and improve them over time.
Basic Account Information:
When you create or reconfigure a Sirqul account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. In some
cases, you may be required to provide your phone number, for example, to use Sirqul via SMS or to help us prevent spam, fraud, or abuse. Your name and
username are displayed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results. Some Services, such as search and public user
profiles, do not require registration.
You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, your website, or a picture. You may provide
information to customize your account, such as a nickname. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to
you. You may use your account settings to unsubscribe from notifications from Sirqul. You may also unsubscribe by following the instructions contained
within the notification or the instructions on our website. We may use your contact information to help others find your Sirqul account, including through
third-party services and client applications. Your privacy settings control whether others can find you by your email address or nickname. You may choose
to upload your address book so that we can help you find Sirqul users you know or help other Sirqul users find you. We may later make suggestions to you
and other users on Sirqul based on imported address book contacts. You can delete your imported address book contacts from Sirqul at any time. If you email
us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your Sirqul account to your account on
another service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize. This
information helps us improve the Services, and is deleted from Sirqul within a few weeks of your disconnecting from Sirqul your account on the other
service. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.
Actions, Following, Lists and other Public Information:
Our Services are primarily designed to help you create, share, and interact with the world. Most of the information you provide us is information you are
asking us to make public. This includes not only the interactions you have with our service and the metadata provided when you create content, but the
people you follow, the content/people you mark as favorites, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. We may use this
information to customize the content we show you, including ads. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public for as long as you
do not delete it from Sirqul, but we generally give you settings to make the information more private if you want. Our Services broadly and instantly
disseminate your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services. For instance, your public user profile information and publicly
posted content are immediately delivered via our APIs to our partners and other third parties, including search engines, developers, and publishers that
integrate Sirqul content into their services. When you share information or content like comments, photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should
think carefully about what you are making public.
You may choose to publish your location via your Sirqul profile settings. You may also tell us your location when you set your computer or mobile device to
send us location information. We may also use other data from your device to determine location, for example, information about wireless networks or cell
towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services and to improve
and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local information, shops, similarly interested users, ads, and suggestions.
Sirqul may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications,
by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share
aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular content source, link, etc. was clicked on, read, or shared.

computer's hard disk. Sirqul may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor
aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to customize and improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically
accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the
websites you visit. However, some Services may not function properly if you disable cookies.
When you use our Services, we may receive information ("Log Data") such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring
web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information. We
receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email
notifications, use your Sirqul account to authenticate to a third-party website or application, or visit a third-party website that includes a Sirqul
button or widget. We may also receive Log Data when you click on, view or interact with a link on our Services to a third-party application, such as when
you choose to install another application through Sirqul, App Stores, or via various website usage. Sirqul uses Log Data to provide, understand, and
improve our Services. If not already done earlier, for example, as provided below for Widget Data, we will either delete Log Data or remove any common
account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after 18 months.
We may tailor the Services for you based on your visits to third-party websites that integrate Sirqul buttons or widgets. When these websites first load
our buttons or widgets for display, we receive Log Data that includes the web page you visited and a cookie that identifies your browser (" Widget Data"). After a maximum of 10 days, we start the process of deleting, de-identifying, or aggregating Widget Data, which is usually
instantaneous but in some cases may take up to a week. We may use Widget Data to tailor content for you, such as suggestions for people to follow on Sirqul
and other content you may be interested in. Tailored content is stored with only browser cookies or device IDs and is separated from other Widget Data such
as page-visit information. For Posts, Log Data, and other information that we receive from interactions with Sirqul buttons or widgets, please see the

common account identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure and tailor ads. For example, this allows us to display ads about things you may
have already shown interest in. We may also receive information about you from our corporate affiliates in order to help provide, understand, and improve
our Services and our affiliates' services, including the delivery of ads.
