Some Services, such as search and public user profiles, do not require registration but, when you create or reconfigure a ALIKE account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. In some cases, you may be required to provide your phone number, to use ALIKE via SMS or to help us prevent spam, fraud, or abuse. Your name and username are listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results.

You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, your website, or a picture. You may provide information to customize your account, such as a cell phone number for the delivery of SMS messages. By default the information you provide is public for as long as you do not delete it from ALIKE, but we generally give you settings to make the information more private if you want.

You may use your account settings to unsubscribe from notifications from ALIKE. You may also unsubscribe by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. We may use your contact information to help others find your ALIKE profile, including through third-party services.

You may choose to upload your address book so that we can help you find ALIKE users you know or help other ALIKE users find you. We may later make suggestions to you and other users on ALIKE based on imported address book contacts.

If you connect your ALIKE account to your account on another service in order to cross-post between ALIKE and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize.

ALIKE’s Services are primarily made to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you ask us to share is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the messages you post and the metadata provided with ALIKE posting, such as when you posted ALIKE, but also the lists you create, the people you follow, the ALIKES you mark as favorites, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. We may use this information to customize the content we show you, including ads.

ALIKES services are closely connected to your location. By default by posting ALIKE you choose to publish your location and track your posts with your real time location. You may also change setting on your account to track your location with the account address.

We may also use other data from your device to determine location, for example, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as Promoted ALIEKS with your location, and to improve and customize the Services.

ALIKE may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to

help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.

Like many websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services. ALIKE may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to customize and improve our Services.

When you ALIKE Services, we may receive information ("Log Data") such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information. We may also receive Log Data when you click on, view or interact with a link on our Services to a third-party application.

You may provide your payment information, including your credit or debit card number, card expiration date, CVV code, and billing address (collectively, "Payment Information"), along with your shipping address, to complete a commerce transaction. We consider your Payment Information and shipping address private and do not make such information public. Transaction Data and Registered Card Data may include the merchant’s name and the date, time and amount of the transaction.

If you buy goods or services on ALIKE, we may provide the seller, commerce provider or marketplace with your name, email address, shipping address, Payment Information and Transaction Data to facilitate payment processing, order fulfilment and dispute resolution (including payment and shipping disputes) and to help prevent, detect and investigate fraud or other prohibited activities. Please refer to these third parties’ privacy policies for information about their privacy practices.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Policy, we may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect ALIKE’'s rights or property. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose your information.

In the event that ALIKE is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. This Privacy Policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity. We may also disclose information about you to our corporate affiliates in order to help provide, understand, and improve our Services and our affiliates’ services, including the delivery of ads.

Our Services are not directed to persons under 13. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account.

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version of the policy will govern our use of your information and will always be www.alike.net. If we make a change to this policy that, in our

sole discretion, is material, we will notify you via an update or email to the email address associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.
