Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

AProForYou is about shopping together, and "together", of course, means making connections with people and sharing your style and shopping preferences with them. We allow you to choose with whom you connect and the information you provide to friends and other users through AProForYou. Your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is permitted by you, reasonably necessary to offer the service, or legally required. For example:

  • AProForYou restricts access to member information by third party search engine "crawlers" (e.g. Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask) unless permitted by you. AProForYou takes steps to block access by these engines to personal information about our members.
  • We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about AProForYou, to process payments for products or services, to offer localized shopping benefits, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the specified AProForYou purposes.
  • We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Web Site or using the AProForYou brand, trademark or name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
  • We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers.
  • We may offer the products and services of, or provide services jointly with, other companies on the Web Site. We make it apparent when you are interacting with a third party through our Web Site, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.
  • If the ownership of the AProForYou business, or individual subsections owned by AProForYou, were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue to operate.
  • When you use AProForYou, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a friend), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. You share any such information at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos or other items, this information may become publicly available.

    Third Party Advertising

    Advertisements that appear on AProForYou are sometimes served directly to you by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also set cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. AProForYou does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by any third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your profile information stored on AProForYou unless you choose to share it with them. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by AProForYou and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.

    Changing or Removing Information

    Access and control over most personal information on AProForYou is readily available through the profile editing Web pages. AProForYou members may modify or delete any of their profile information at any time by logging into their accounts and accessing the profile pages. Information will be updated immediately. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of AProForYou. Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other AProForYou members, however, (e.g., sending a personal message to another AProForYou member) you generally cannot remove such communications.


    AProForYou takes appropriate precautions to protect our members' information. Your profile information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), we encrypt that information using Secure Sockets Layer technology (SSL) and verify our identity with a current and valid SSL certificate. Because any email you send to us is not encrypted and secured, we request that you do not send private information to us by email.

    Terms of Use, Notices and Revisions

We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service at any time. Changes take effect upon publication of the new policy, unless otherwise specified in the new policy. When we make changes, we will post them and will indicate at the top of this page the policy's new effective date. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or through notice on our home page. We encourage you to check this policy on a regular basis so that you remain informed of our current privacy policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current privacy policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account.
