How is my Information Shared?
Your Personal Information could also be shared or sold as aggregated information or when anonymized by removing the personally identifying parts of your information, for example, we may share customer trend information with third parties, where that information is aggregated from sets of users and not any single user. We share this kind of aggregated data to improve and further our business and those of third party businesses, as well as to increase customer service, marketing and communications effectiveness.
Your friends may see, for example, your location, name, text messages, mood, sensory data, and any other content uploaded or shared by you, just as you can see your friends’ information. Persons who have access to this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without our knowledge. Therefore, we urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private to access and use the Services.

How is my Location Determined and Shared?
Determining your location - Whenever you open, use or interact with our Services through the application on your mobile device or one of our sites, we use the location information from your mobile device or browser (e.g., latitude and longitude) to tailor the Services experience to your current location. The Services also use your mobile device’s background location to provide the Services, including, to send you notifications of friends, events, or other relevant information near you. If you have ‘background location’ turned on, the Services may, from time to time, tell us about your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the application.
We may use various technologies to determine location, such as location services of the applicable operating system or browser, GPS, Bluetooth, i-Beacon, RFID, and sensor data from your devices, along with nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers, and other technologies to determine your devices' approximate location.
When using the Services, your location data, shown by graphic points on a map, distance and direction proximity, or other graphic or text method, is shared with all members of any active group or “circle” you join via the Services and is updated in real time using your background location. You can turn off location sharing in your device in which case your location will only be shared when you proactively decide to tell the Services that you are at a particular place. The Services include several features that may allow you to share your information with others.
