Social Networking Sites
Our social features promote and facilitate communication between users, such as sharing new music, artists or events. In order to protect the application users’ privacy, we will only show you this information if they have already opted in to use the same social feature you are using.
The information you allow ArtistPR.com to access is unique to each application or SNS, and is affected by the privacy settings you have set up on each specific SNS. You can find out more about these settings at the SNS wherever you access our applications.
If you opt to access one of our social features, you may be asked to log into a SNS, such as Facebook, through our application. The following information may be provided by the SNS to ArtistPR.com:
- Your SNS user ID
- Your profile picture or its URL (if available)
- The user IDs and profile pictures of the people you are connected to on the SNS, such as Facebook friends
- Contact information (such as your name and email address)

We link this data to a user ID that ArtistPR.com assigns to you. When a SNS sends us the user IDs and profile pictures of your friends, we check to see which of your friends also have chosen to access the same ArtistPR.com social feature you are using. In the event that your friends have not chosen to use our social features, we do not retain their user IDs or other information about them. If your friends have opted in to use the same social feature you selected, then we link that information to you so ArtistPR.com’s social features can be used with those friends. The list of friends linked to your user ID will be updated each time you log into our social features.
While using ArtistPR.com’s social features, you may be able to see your friends’ profile pictures and their most recent use of the feature. Similarly, when your friends are using the feature, they may be able to see your profile picture and your most recent use of the feature. You may be able to invite your friends to join you, such as by posting a message to your Facebook wall or other SNS. You will never be required to use ArtistPR.com’s social features in order to use our applications.
