To personalize User Experience and simplify the registration process, the Company offers Users the option to use or interact with third party services such as Facebook and Twitter. When the User connects to our Website/App through these Services, we may disclose information about the User to the relevant Service Providers and they may disclose information about the User to our Company.

When the User allows the Company access to his/her data through a third party, the Company may use this data for various purposes such as:
Automatic creation of relationships on our system, for example if the User connects via a service that contains a public list of friends such as Twitter, our Service will check the Website/App memberships to identify corresponding Users of our Service and automatically create these relationships within our system.
Relationship suggestions, for example if the User connects through a service that has a private list of contacts (such as Google and Yahoo!), our system will check the Website/App memberships to identify corresponding contacts and will suggest that you add them to your contact list. This process is not automatic and the User must select to add these Users to his/her Contact list
Creation of e-mailing lists. When Users share content by using for example the system’s “forward-to-a-friend” function, the Website/App can use third party recipient lists to create a correspondence list that the User can employ to send e-mails.
Creation of messaging lists. Similar to the e-mail list but for messaging services.
To customize the User Experience, we may use profile information on third party services, such as your profile image, popular posts, preferred articles, follower comments, etc.
Connections to third party services can be disabled at any time by modifying the relevant selections in the User’s profile.
Under any circumstances does the Company control or endorse the Privacy and Data Protection policies and practices of third party services. We strongly suggest that the User read and understand the Policies of all third party service providers.
