Irrespective of which country you live in, you authorize us to use your information in, and as a result to transfer it to and store it in, the United States and any other country where we operate. Privacy and data protection laws in some of these countries may vary from the laws in the country where you live.
Basic Account Information: When you create or reconfigure an account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, or phone number.

Contact Information: You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable Services. If you provide Canfinder with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages to that number from Canfinder. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications. You may use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from the Canfinder Services.

Your privacy settings control whether others can find you on the Canfinder Services by your email address or phone number.
Additional Information: You may provide us with profile information to make public on Canfinder Services, such as a short biography, your location, your website, date of birth, or a picture. If you provide us with profile information and you don’t see a visibility setting, that information is public. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your account on our Services to your account on another service in order to cross-post between our Services and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize.

We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in, and to customize the content we show you, including ads. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through the Canfinder Services public for as long as you do not delete it, but we generally give you settings or features, like direct messages, to make the information more private if you want. The Canfinder Services broadly and instantly disseminate your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services.

We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people/stores to follow.
Links: Canfinder 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. Links, Posts, and direct messages shared on the Services will be processed and links shortened to a http://t.co link.
Log Data: When you use our Services, we may receive information (“Log Data”) such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information.
