We occasionally send you communications of a transactional nature (e.g. service-related announcements, billing-related matters, changes to our services or policies, a welcome email when you first register).

Information you share
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it can be indexable by search engines. Our services provide you with different options for sharing and deleting your content but we cannot delete content from search engines so you need to be careful about information you make public.
Information we share
From time-to-time, we may need to disclose your information to third parties such as to law enforcement authorities or our legal advisers, where it is necessary to comply with the law or regulation; enforce or apply our user terms and conditions; to protect our rights, or to preserve the safety of our customers. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.
We may also share your personal information with companies that provide services to help us with our business activities (e.g. processing payments or submitting emails to you on our behalf), in connection with any merger, a sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets, or a financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company. Whenever we share your personal information for this reason, we will ensure that the recipient is bound by all appropriate confidentiality obligations and that it commits to using your personal information only for the purposes for which you originally provided it.
You should also be aware that the information submitted to public areas, such as our blogs, may be read, collected, and used by others who access them.
- To gather metrics about your experience.
- To make our services easier to use.

We, or our service providers and other third parties we work with, place cookies when you visit our website and other websites or when you open emails that we send you, to provide you with more tailored marketing content (about our services or other services), and to evaluate whether this content is useful or effective. For instance, we evaluate which ads are clicked on most often, and whether those clicks lead users to make better use of our tools, features, and services. If you don’t want to receive ads that are tailored to you based on your online activity, you may contact us and ask to “opt out”. Opting out in this way does not mean you will not receive any ads; it just means that you will not receive ads from such companies that have been tailored to you based on your activities and inferred preferences.
In addition to the above, we have implemented on our websites and other services certain Google Analytics features that support Display Advertising, including retargeting. Visitors to our websites may opt-out of certain types of Google Analytics tracking, customize the Google Display Network ads by using the Google Ad Preferences Manager and learn more about how Google serves ads by viewing its Customer Ads Help Center.
