Use of Information Obtained by Honorplace
When you register with Honorplace, you create your own profile and privacy settings for you online shadowbox. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people in the networks specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with people on Honorplace or in the general public. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Honorplace that we think you may find valuable.
Shadowbox information you submit to Honorplace will be available to users of Honorplace who belong to at least one of the networks you allow to access the information through your privacy settings (e.g., members, your buddy list, invitation only, and general public). Your name, military service, rank, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the Honorplace network. 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 (member or buddy list) that allows such access based on your privacy settings.
Honorplace 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 you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
Honorplace provides you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through Honorplace. Our network 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:
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 Honorplace, 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 Honorplace-specified purposes.
We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies on Honorplace. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on Honorplace, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.
In order to provide you as a Honorplace user with clear disclosure of the activity information being collected on third party sites and potentially shared with your friends on Honorplace, we collect certain information from that site and present it to you after you have completed an action on that site.
Like many other websites that interact with third party sites, we may receive some information even if you are logged out from Honorplace, or that pertains to non-Honorplace users, from those sites in conjunction with the technical operation of the system. In cases where Honorplace receives information on users that are not logged in, or on non-Honorplace users, we do not attempt to associate it with individual Honorplace accounts and will discard it.
When you use Honorplace, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a friend or someone in your network), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, 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, or other items , this information may become publicly available.
