Use of Information Obtained by Fashbo
When you register with Fashbo, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, is available to all visitors to the Fashbo website. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Fashbo that we think you may find valuable if you select this option when signing up for Fashbo or in editing your profile at a time after you sig up with Fashbo.
Profile information is used by Fashbo 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.
Your name, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across Fashbo 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.
Fashbo may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if you have enabled users to ask a question about a Fashbo that you have uploaded, we will send you an email announcing this and provide you with a mechanism to reply back.
Generally, you may opt out of such emails in your Fashbo profile, though Fashbo reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
Fashbo 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 like a specific fashion trend and personalizing advertisements and promotions.. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, they're more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you put a favorite fashion designer your profile, we might serve you an advertisement of a sale from that designer. But we don't tell the designer/company who you are.
