We share your username, title and photo with (1) users who are taking your poll, and (2) users whose poll you have taken, in order to provide depth to their results and experience on the site. If you choose to make your profile “public” (this feature is off by default), then users will also be able to view your name, location, bio, url of website, and gender.
Any actions performed on the Site are collected and retained as a core function of providing and maintaining our service and may be used without identifying information in scientific research.

Some information associated with deleted accounts is retained in order to maintain the service for other users, for statistical and historical purposes, and for use in scientific research.
We do not disclose any information to outside parties except as per your request.
Except in the case of a merger or acquisition, your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.
