Content others share or reshare about you

activity on our Products can choose to share it with others on and off our Products,

when you share a post or send a message to specific friends or accounts, they can
download, screenshot, or reshare that content to others across or off our Products.

How can I manage or delete information about me?
We provide you with the ability to access, rectify, port and erase your data.
We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services and Accolader Products, or until your account is deleted - whichever comes first. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs. For example, when you search for something on Accolader, you can access and delete that query from within your search history at any time, but the log of that search is deleted after 6 months.
When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as your comments, and you won't be able to recover that information later. Information that others have shared about you isn't part of your account and won't be deleted. If you don't want to delete your account but want to temporarily stop using the Products, you can deactivate your account instead.
How will we notify you of changes to this policy?
We'll notify you before we make changes to this policy and give you the opportunity to review the revised policy before you choose to continue using our Products.
