How is this information shared?
Your information is shared with others in the following ways:
Sharing on the OpenMind Platform
People and accounts you share and communicate with
When you share and communicate using our platform, you choose the audience for what you share. Your network can also see actions you have taken on our platform, including engagement with ads and sponsored content. We also let other accounts see who has viewed their OpenMind Durations & Moments.
Public information can be seen by anyone, on our platform. This includes your OpenMind username; any information you share with a public audience; information in your public profile on OpenMind; and content you share on OpenMind Moments. You, other people using OpenMind, and we can provide access to or send public information to anyone on our platform, including in search results, or through tools and APIs.
Content others share or reshare about you
You should consider who you choose to share with, because people who can see your activity on our platform can choose to share it with others on or off our platform, including people and businesses outside the audience you shared with. For example, when you share a post or share a Thought to specific friends or accounts, they can launch, screenshot, or reshare that content to others across or off our Platform, in person. Also, when you comment on someone else's post or react to their content, your comment or reaction is visible to anyone who can see the other person's content, and that person can change the feed audience later.
People can also use our platform to create and share content about you with the audience/feed they choose. If you are uncomfortable with what others have shared about you on our platforms, you can learn how to report the content.
Information about your active status or presence on our platforms.
People in your networks can see signals telling them whether you are active on our platform.
Law enforcement or legal requests.
We share information with law enforcement or in response to legal requests in the circumstances outlined below.
Learn more about how you can control the information about you that you or others share with third-party partners in your OpenMind Settings.
How can I manage or delete information about me?
We provide you with the ability to access, rectify, port and erase your data. Learn more in your OpenMind Settings
We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our platform, 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.
When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as your photos and status updates, 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. To delete your account at any time, please visit your OpenMind Settings.
How do we respond to legal requests or prevent harm?
We access, preserve and share your information with regulators, law enforcement or others:
In response to a legal request (like 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 when 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 recognized standards.
When we have a good-faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud, unauthorized use of the Platform, violations of our terms or policies, or other harmful or illegal activity; to protect ourselves (including our rights, property or Platform), you or others, including as part of investigations or regulatory inquiries; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, if relevant, we provide information to and receive information from third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud, abuse and other harmful activity on and off our Platform.
Information we receive about you can be accessed and preserved for an extended period when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations of possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also retain information from accounts disabled for terms violations for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other term violations.
How do we operate and transfer data as part of our global services?
We share information globally, both internally within OpenMind Technologies LLC, and externally with our ad partners and with those you connect and share with around the world in accordance with this policy. Your information may, for example, be transferred or transmitted to, or stored and processed in the United States or other countries outside of where you live for the purposes as described in this policy. These data transfers are necessary to provide the services set forth in the OpenMind Terms and to globally operate and provide our Platform to you. We utilize standard contract clauses, rely on the European Commission's adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, and obtain your consent for these data transfers to the United States and other countries.
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 Platform.
