How is this information shared?

Sharing on our Services

People use our Services to connect and share with others. We make this possible by sharing your information in the following ways:

People you share and communicate with.

When you share and communicate using our Services, you choose to share or not share - only the contact information. Rest information is default – in case you want to delete your account, you can email us on info@globaltopstudents.com

Public information is any information that you share with a public audience, as well as information in your public profile or content you share. Public information is available to anyone on or off our Services and can be seen or accessed through online search engines, APIs and offline media, such as on TV.

In some cases, people you share and communicate with may download or re-share this content with others on and off our Services. When you comment on another person's post or like their content, your comment will also be public.

People that see content that others share about you.

Other people may use our Services to share content about you with the audience they choose. For example, people may share a photo of you, mention or share information about you that you shared with them.

We share information we have about you within the family of companies.

New owner.

If the ownership or control of all or part of our Services or their assets changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner.

Sharing with third-party partners and customers

We work with third-party companies who help us provide and improve our Services or who use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate our companies and provide free services to people around the world.

Here are the types of third parties that we can share information with about you:

Advertising, measurement and analytics services (non-personally identifiable information only).

We want our advertising to be as relevant and interesting as the other information you find on our Services. With this in mind, we use all of the information that we have about you to show you relevant ads. We do not share information that personally identifies you (personally identifiable information is information such as a name or email address that can by itself be used to contact you or identify who you are) with advertising, measurement or analytics partners unless you give us permission. We may provide these partners with information about the reach and effectiveness of their advertising without providing information that personally identifies you, or if we have aggregated the information so that it does not personally identify you. For example, we may tell an advertiser how its ads performed, or how many people viewed their ads or installed an app after seeing an ad, or provide non-personally identifying demographic information (such as 25- year-old female, in Madrid, who likes software engineering) to these partners to help them understand their audience or customers, but only after the advertiser has agreed to abide by our advertiser guidelines.

 

Please review your advertising preferences to understand why you're seeing a particular ad.

Vendors, service providers and other partners.

We transfer information to vendors, service providers and other partners who globally support our business, such as providing technical infrastructure services, analysing how our Services are used, measuring the effectiveness of ads and services, providing customer service, facilitating payments or conducting academic research and surveys. These partners must adhere to strict confidentiality obligations in a way that is consistent with this Data Policy and the agreements that we enter into with them.

How can I manage or delete information about me?

You can manage the content and information you share. To delete account you can write to us on info@globaltopstudents.com

We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted, unless we no longer need the data to provide products and services.

How do we respond to legal requests or prevent harm?

We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (e.g. a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction and is consistent with internationally recognised standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm.

How our global services operate

We may share information internally within our family of companies or with third parties for purposes described in this policy.

You can contact us on info@globaltopstudents.com with questions or concerns. We also may resolve disputes you have with us in connection with our privacy policies.

How will we notify you of changes to this policy?
