Your name, photo, and any other information that you choose to add to your public-facing profile will be available for viewing by the public and other users of the Dobeed Platform. Once you create a profile, others will be able to see in your profile certain information about your activity on the Dobeed Platform, such as the questions and answers you post, your followers and who you follow, topics of interest to you, the information you list as credentials, and your edits to your content.

Access and Amend Your Information

You may update or correct your account information at any time by logging in to your account. You may also make a number of other adjustments to settings or the display of information about you as described in more detail in the following section about Your Choices.

Your Choices

You may decline to submit information through the Dobeed Platform, in which case we may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may also control the types of notifications and communications we send, limit the information shared within the Dobeed Platform about you, and otherwise amend certain privacy settings. Here is some further information about some of your choices:

Anonymous Posts. You may post certain content anonymously, including questions and answers. In such event, your name is not displayed along with the content, and Dobeed does not associate such content with your user ID and other profile data.

Your Content. You may edit or delete the answers that you post at any time. Any questions you have posted may remain on the Dobeed Platform and be edited by other users. Any deleted content will be removed from third-party sites from which it has been shared via Dobeed’s standard sharing features; however we have no control over deletions or changes to your content if it has been shared manually by others. When you make edits to your content, other users will be able to see the history of those edits in your profile activity and on content edit logs.

Adult Content. We do not accept adult content such as explicit and implicit pornographic materials.

Emails and Communications. When you join the Dobeed Platform by signing up for an account or creating a profile, as part of the service, you will receive the Dobeed digest containing content that we believe may match your interests. You can manage your email and notice preferences in your account profile settings, under your Emails and Notifications settings. If you opt out of receiving emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you transactional emails about your account or any services you have requested or received from us.

Third parties may comment on your postings within the Dobeed Platform. In your profile, under your Privacy Settings, you can adjust whether to allow people to comment on your answers and posts. You can also adjust permissions about who you allow to send you messages on the Dobeed Platform.

Followers. You can block the ability of another Dobeed user to follow you by selecting the setting for this in the other user’s profile. You can change whether or not you follow other users.

Topics. You can change topics that you follow or that your profile lists as areas that you know about.

Credentials. You can change your credentials that are displayed in your profile or in connection with a specific answer.

Indexed Search. In your privacy settings, you can control whether your profile and name is indexed by search engines. Changes to privacy settings may only apply on a going-forward basis; for example, your name (e.g., answers and profile) that has already been indexed by search engines may remain indexed for a period of time even after you have turned off indexing, as implementing this change is outside of our control.

Deleted or Deactivated Account. If you choose “Delete Account” in your profile’s “Privacy Settings,” then all of your content will be removed from public visibility on the Dobeed Platform, and it may not be restored by us, even if you change your mind. If you choose “Deactivate Account,” then you will no longer receive any communications from us, and users will not be able to interact with you; however your content will remain on the Dobeed Platform. Once you deactivate your account, you can reactivate it any time by choosing to log in.

Third-Party Ad Networks

For information about and to opt out of interest-based ads from many ad networks, go to:

Linked Networks. You may connect or disconnect your Linked Networks, such as Google, through the Account Settings tab in your profile settings, and you may access, amend and delete much of your profile information through your profile settings. Once you disconnect a Linked Network, we will not receive information from that Linked Network going forward unless you choose to reconnect it. You may also control whether the Linked Network is visible in your profile.

Transferring Your Data

Dobeed is headquartered in the United States, and has operations, entities and service providers in the United States and throughout the world. As such, we and our service providers may transfer your personal information to, or access it in, jurisdictions (including the United States) that may not provide equivalent levels of data protection as your home jurisdiction. We will take steps to ensure that your personal information receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which we process it.

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly want, collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under the relevant age without parental consent, we take steps to delete that information.
