Posts, Following, Collections, Profile, and Other Public Information: MyLookouts is primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide us through MyLookouts is information you are asking us to make public. You may provide us with profile information such as a short biography, your location, your website, date of birth, or a picture. Additionally, your public information includes the messages you Publish; the metadata provided with post; information about your account, such as creation time, language, country, and time zone; and the collections you create, people you follow, Posts you Like or share. MyLookouts broadly and instantly disseminates your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services, including search engines, developers, and publishers that integrate MyLookouts content into their services, and organizations such as universities, public health agencies, and market research firms that analyze the information for trends and insights. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through the Services public for as long as you do not delete it.
Direct Messages and Non-Public Communications: We provide certain features that allow you to communicate more privately. For example, you can use Direct Messages to have private conversations with other MyLookouts users. When you privately communicate with others through our Services, such as by sending and receiving Direct Messages, we will store and process your communications, and information related to them. When you use features like Direct Messages to communicate privately, please remember that recipients may copy, store, and re-share the contents of your communications.
Location Information: We may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your Posts and in your MyLookouts profile. We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, 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 for example, with more relevant content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow.
Links: We 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 link was clicked on.
