How We Use Your Information.

In general, we use the information we collect about you to provide and operate the Services, to respond to your requests, and to provide customer service and technical support. We may also use your information:

How We Share Your Information.

You cannot control who views your content, other than to mark it anonymous. So, if you don't want to share something publicly, don't post it. SnapSuggest is a social network, and the content you post may be shared with and viewable by others in your company. If you mark a suggestion or comment as anonymous, we do not identify you by name or contact information to anyone. However, we cannot prevent others from determining your identify from the content you posts or how you share content through third party sites.

The information we collect about you, including personally identifiable information, may be shared as follows:

  • Snap Suggest Users. Any information that you post, and do not mark anonymous, including comments, replies and other information may become public. We cannot control how your information is used by others. Your posts are available to all other users in your company. We cannot control the sharing of SnapSuggest (non-anonymous) content, no matter who posted it, though other third party sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
  • Service Providers. We may disclose the information we collect from you to third party vendors, service providers, contractors or agents who perform functions on our behalf.
  • Business Transfers. If we are acquired by or merged with another company, if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another company, or as part of a bankruptcy proceeding, we may transfer the information we have collected from you to the other company.
  • Third Parties and Business Partners. We may share the information we gather about you and other users with our third party business partners, including advertisers. For example, if you post content that mentions one of our business partners, we may share that content with them. As noted, we don't collect name or contact information for suggestions and comments posted anonymously, (unless you post it in your comment or reply).
  • In Response to Legal Process. SnapSuggest cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of SnapSuggest or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
  • To Protect Us and Others. We also may disclose the information we collect from you where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Use or this Policy, or as evidence in litigation in which Snap Suggest is involved.
