On YouPlanet information is shared with friends and people around you. We understand you may not want everyone in the world to have the information you share on YouPlanet; and therefore give you control of your information. YouPlanet follows two core principles:
- You should have control over your personal information.
YouPlanet helps you share information with your friends and people around you. You choose what information you put in your profile, including contact and personal information, pictures, interests and groups you join. And you control the users with whom you share that information through the privacy settings on the My Profile page.
- You should have access to the information others want to share.
There is an increasing amount of information available out there, and you may want to know what relates to you, your friends, and people around you. We want to help you easily get that information. Sharing information should be easy. And we want to provide you with the privacy tools necessary to control how and with whom you share that information. If you have questions or ideas, please send them to .

The Information We Collect
When you visit YouPlanet you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Web Site use information collected by us as you interact with our Web Site.
When you register with YouPlanet, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your telephone number, your address, your gender and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.
When you enter YouPlanet, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all YouPlanet visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to YouPlanet. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.
When you use YouPlanet, you may set up your personal profile, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, add applications, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily see your friend list. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.
Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on YouPlanet is a violation of the YouPlanet Terms of Service and should be reported to email@example.com.
If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. YouPlanet stores this information to send this one-time email, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove this information from our database.
YouPlanet may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the YouPlanet service through the operation of the service (e.g., photo tags) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience.
By using YouPlanet, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in Poland.

If you are under 16, please do not attempt to register for YouPlanet or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 16 may provide any personal information to or on YouPlanet. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us at .

Use of Information Obtained by YouPlanet
When you register with YouPlanet, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with people on YouPlanet. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by YouPlanet that we think you may find valuable. As a part of the YouPlanet service newsletter are also sent out.
Profile information is used by YouPlanet primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings. In some cases where your privacy settings permit it, other YouPlanet users may be able to supplement your profile.
Profile information you submit to YouPlanet will be available to users of YouPlanet in your network. Your name, network names, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the YouPlanet network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so your friends can find you and send a friend request. People who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access your profile information unless they have a relationship to you (friend, friend of friend, member of your groups, etc.) that allows such access based on your privacy settings.
YouPlanet may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message or point, or someone posts on your wall, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.
Generally, you may opt out of such emails through sending an email to email@example.com, though YouPlanet reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
YouPlanet may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people in a network like a band or movie and personalizing advertisements and promotions so that we can provide you YouPlanet. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, there’re more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you put a favorite location in your profile, we might serve you an advertisement highlighting a special event at that location. But we don't tell the event organizer who you are.
We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, YouPlanet Platform developers and other users of YouPlanet, to supplement your profile. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your privacy settings that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information to your profile (e.g., removing photo tag links).
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
YouPlanet is a lot about sharing information with others — friends and connections at YouPlanet— while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and connections through YouPlanet. Our architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example:
- Your news feed may aggregate the information you provide and make it available to your friends and network members according to your privacy settings.
- We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about YouPlanet, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, to offer an online job application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the YouPlanet-specified purposes.
- We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the YouPlanet world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., messaging is disabled) and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse.
- We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information except where required by law. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the YouPlanet service or using the YouPlanet name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
- We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers.
- We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies on YouPlanet. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on YouPlanet, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.
When you use YouPlanet, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a friend or some connection), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, Marketplace listings or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, Marketplace listings or other items, this information may become publicly available.

Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of YouPlanet.
Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on YouPlanet, however, (e.g., sending a personal message to another YouPlanet user) you generally cannot remove such communications.
