With your permission, we may also transfer to our system profile information contained in your third-party profile, if needed.

Our Disclosure of Your Information

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from miscreants, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.
Information You Share
Your User ID is displayed when posting comments (and so available to the public), and is connected to all of your site activity. Notices sent to other community members about suspicious activity and policy violations on our sites refer to User IDs and specific items. So if you associate your name with your User ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your site activities.
If you access our sites from a shared computer or a computer in an internet café, certain information about you, such as your User ID, activity or comments, may also be visible to other individuals who use the computer after you. Be sure to logout and properly close your browser when finished using a shared computer.
Using Information on Linked Sites
We use "cookies" (small files placed on your hard drive) on certain of our pages to help analyze our web page flow; customize our services, content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.
A few important things you should know about cookies are that:
No Spam, Spyware or Spoofing
Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and characters, and do not disclose your password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.
Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information
Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
Use by Children
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) severely restricts what information can be collected from children under the age of 13. Accordingly, children under the age of 13 in the United States are prohibited from registering for a What-is-Flan.com account, posting or editing any content on our site or providing any of their personal information but are otherwise permitted to access and view the information provided on site with the permission and supervision of a parent or guardian. We do not knowingly solicit information from any child under the age of 13. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 in the United States send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or a parent or guardian) to inform him or her that he or she cannot hold a membership on our site.
