We also use information to provide shortcuts and suggestions to you. For example, we may suggest content to you based on the interests configured on your profile matched against the content provided and tagged by other users.
When we have location information, we use it to tailor our Services for you and others, like helping you to search and locate content, users, vehicles, and events in your area and to help connect you to other drivers in our RoadSharing meetup feature.

Sharing on Our Services
People use our Services to connect and share with others. We make this possible by sharing your information in the following ways:
People you share and communicate with:
When you share and communicate using our Services, you have the ability to control who may see the information or content that you provide, based on the context and association of other members in relation to you and your activities. For example, when you tag content to a group or event, the members of that group or the attendees of that event may view that content. Additionally, your approved followers may view any of the content you upload to our Services. If you have a public profile setting, your content may be visible to non-following members through our search and discover functionalities.
Public information is any information you share from a profile with public setting, or information you share in a public group or public event. Public information is available to anyone on or off our Services and may be seen or accessed through online search engines.
In some cases, people you share and communicate with may re-share this content with others on and off our Services. When you comment on another person’s post or like their content on RoadStr, that person decides whether the content is public or private based on his or her profile setting.
People that see content others share about you:
Other people may use our Services to share content about you with the audience they choose. For example, people may share a photo of you, mention or tag you at a location in a post, or share information about you that you shared with them.
Apps, websites, and third-party integrations on or using our Services:
When you use third-party apps, websites, or other services that use or are integrated with our Services, they may receive information about what you post or share. For example, if you use the Facebook Login feature, Facebook may get information about your usage of our application.
When you use Facebook Login, we request your permission to access your public profile, which may include your name, profile photo, and friend’s list. We may use this information to enhance your experience on our Services and to facilitate your connections with other Facebook friends utilizing our Services.
If the ownership or control of all or part of our Services or their assets changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner.
Sharing with Third-Party Partners and Customers
We may work with third party companies who help us provide and improve our Services or who use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate our companies and provide free services to auto enthusiasts around the world.

We do not share information that personally identifies you (personally identifiable information is information like name or email address that can by itself be used to contact you or identifies who you are) with advertising, measurement, or analytics partners unless you give us permission. We may provide these partners with information about the reach and effectiveness of their advertising without providing information that personally identifies you, or if we have aggregated the information so that it does not personally identify you.
