Basic Account Information
If you are creating an ImageValu account, you must provide us with some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, or phone number. On ImageValu, your name and username / iname are always listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. You can create and manage multiple ImageValu accounts.
You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable certain account features, for example, for login verification or ImageValu via Mail / SMS. If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages to that number from us. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications. You may use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from ImageValu. You may also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions on our website. Your Discoverability privacy settings control whether others can find you on ImageValu by your email address or phone number.
You may choose to provide us with additional information to help improve and personalize your experience across our Services. For example, you may choose to upload and sync your address book so that we can help you find and connect with users you know or help other users find and connect with you.

Sharing, Admiring, Lists, Profile, and Other Public Information
ImageValu is primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide us through ImageValu is information you are asking us to make public. You may provide us with profile information such as a short biography, your location, your website, date of birth, or a picture. Additionally, your public information includes the messages you Flash; the metadata provided with Flash, such as when you Flashed and the client application you used to Flash; information about your account, such as creation time, language, country, and time zone; and the lists you create, people you follow, Flash you Like or ReFlash, and Periscope broadcasts you click or otherwise engage with (such as by commenting or hearting) on ImageValu. ImageValu broadly and instantly disseminates your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services, including search engines, developers, and publishers that integrate ImageValu content into their services, and organizations such as universities, public health agencies, and market research firms that analyze the information for trends and insights. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public. We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through the Services public for as long as you do not delete it, but we generally give you settings or features, like protected Flash, to make the information more private if you want. For certain profile information fields we provide you with visibility settings to select who can see this information in your profile. If you provide us with profile information and you don’t see a visibility setting, that information is public. You can change the language
We may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your Flash and in your ImageValu profile. You may also tell us your location when you set your trend location on imageValu.com. We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, 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 allowing you to Flash with your location, and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow.
We 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.
