Public Information

When we use the phrase “public information”, we mean the information you choose to make public, as well as information that is always publicly available.

 

Information You Choose to Make Public

Choosing to make your information public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone, including people not associated with Uparzon, will also be able to see it.

Choosing to make your information public also means that this information:

can be associated with you (i.e., your name, profile pictures, cover photos, timeline, User ID, username, etc.) even off Uparzon;

can show up when someone does a search on Uparzon or on a public search engine;

will be accessible to the Uparzon-integrated games, applications, and websites you and your friends use; and

Sometimes you will not be able to select an audience when you post something. This is because some types of stories are always public stories. As a general rule, you should assume that if you do not see a sharing icon, the information will be publicly available.

When others share information about you, they can also choose to make it public.

 

Information that is Always Publicly Available

The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and they are treated just like information you decided to make public:

Name:

o This helps your friends and family to find you.

Profile Pictures and Cover Photos:

o These help your friends and family to recognize you. If you are uncomfortable in making any of these photos public, you can always delete them. Unless you delete them, when you add a new profile picture or cover photo, the previous photo will remain public in your profile picture or cover photo album.

Networks:

o This helps you to see with whom you will be sharing information before you choose your audience. If you are uncomfortable making your network public, you can leave the network.

Gender:

o This allows us to refer to you properly.

Username and User ID:

o These allow you to give out a custom link to your timeline or Page, receive an email at your Uparzon email address, and help make Uparzon Platform possible.
