      • The application allows you to add to your Account users who already have an Account with us and invite third parties who do not have an Account with us. If you voluntarily provide access to your address book or contacts on the device on which you downloaded our application (your “Device“) or through your account with third party social networking sites (as described below) or otherwise provide a third party’s information, we may collect such information (e.g., the names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses in your address book and contacts). If you decide to invite a third party to create an Account, we may use such information to send an e-mail and follow up with the third party.
      • If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.

For example, if you remove a status update on a social networking service or set an access restriction on the status update, and the social networking service provides it to us regardless of it being removed or does not inform us of the access restriction, we cannot be responsible for the consequences of the error.

      For all of these connected social networking services, we may provide information about you to the social networking service for that service’s own use and for its own purposes which will be subject to that service’s privacy policy, which you may read on their various web sites.
