You should read this policy in full, but here are a few key things we hope you take away from it:
OurteenNetwork is public and post and activities are immediately viewable and searchable by anyone around the world. We give you non-public ways to communicate on OurteenNetwork too, through protected post and Direct Messages. You can also use OurteenNetwork under a pseudonym if you prefer not to use your name.
When you use OurteenNetwork, even if you are only viewing profiles or post, we receive some personal information from you such as the type of device you are using and your IP address.
If you have questions about this policy, how we collect or process your personal data, or anything else related to our privacy practices, we want to hear from you. You can contact us at any time.
Information you share with us
Basic Account Information
You do not need to create an account to use some of the features of our service, such as searching and viewing public OurteenNetwork user profiles. If you choose to create an account you must provide us with some personal information so that we can provide you with our services. In OurteenNetwork this includes an account name (for example, Maria), a future username (for example, @maria), a password, and an email address, your age, and your location. Your account name and username are always public, but you can use your real name or a pseudonym.
Most of the activity on OurteenNetwork is public, which includes your profile information, your profile picture, your age, location, followers and your likes if you have indicated them, as well as some information about your activities on OurteenNetwork. Also public are the activities where he will participate, the next activities created, the activities he did, the latest post, the groups where he is targeted. Information posted about you by others using our services may also be public. For example, other people might mention you in a post or put a picture where you appear.
You are responsible for your posts, messages or activities and other information you provide through our services and should think carefully about what you disclose, especially if it is sensitive information such as the telephone. If you update your public information on OurteenNetwork, for example, by deleting or deactivating your account, we will reflect your updated content on OurteenNetwork. By unsubscribing we will remove your OurteenNetwork information, but please note that it may still appear on search engines such as Google or social networks.
In addition to providing your public information to the world directly at OurteenNetwork, we also use technologies such as application programming interfaces (APIs) and integrations to enable this information to be used by websites, applications and others (for example, to showcase your activities on Facebook, or Linkedin). These companies are not affiliated with OurteenNetwork and their content may not reflect the updates you make to OurteenNetwork.
Contact Information and Address Books
We use your contact information, such as your email address, to authenticate and maintain the security of your account (and our services), as well as to prevent spam, fraud and abuse. We also use contact information to customize our services, activate certain account features (for example, to verify your email address) and to send you information about future activities. You can modify your email notification settings to control the notifications you receive from OurteenNetwork. You can also unsubscribe from notifications by going to My profile -> Edit profile -> Notifications -> NO.
If you send us an email, we will retain the content of your message, your email address and your contact information to respond to your request.
Direct Messages and Non-Public Communications
We provide certain features that allow you to communicate in a more private way. For example, you can use Private Messages to conduct non-public conversations on OurteenNetwork. When you communicate with others by sending or receiving Private Messages, we will store and process your communications and related information. This includes scanning links and words for malicious content, detecting spam and prohibited images, and reviewing reported issues, as well as checking for words with illegal, homophobic or pornographic content. We also use information about who you have communicated with and when (but not the content of these communications) to better understand the use of our services, and to protect the security and integrity of our platform. We share the content of your Direct Messages with the people to whom you have sent them. When using features such as Private Messages to communicate that recipients, remember that recipients have their own copy of your communications on OurteenNetwork (even if you delete your copy of those messages from your account), which they can duplicate, store or share.

Managing Your Personal Information With Us

If you can delete the information associated to your account, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can change or delete your profile pictures from My Profile -> Edit profile photos.
It is important to note that even if you delete the information associated with your OurteenNetwork account, it is not automatically deleted from other sites that share our information (search engines, aggregators, social networks), for example, on Google, the process of removing your information from the search engine is not immediate once you unsubscribe from OurteenNetwork, but you can still contact us at email@example.com to try to expedite the removal of that information (for example, by asking google to deindex your profile url or by removing a photo from our server cache).
We keep your photos (although they are not used in any way, nor disclosed) for a maximum of 18 months once you delete the information from OurteenNetwork, and we do not retain other data such as email, IP. In the case of banners (expulsion from the website for non-compliance with the rules) we keep the registration data.
When deactivated, your OurteenNetwork account, including your account name, username and public profile, will no longer be visible on the OurteenNetwork website.
In the event that your OurteenNetwork account is accidentally or improperly deactivated, it will not be possible to restore it in the days following the deactivation.
Please note that search engines and other third parties may retain copies of your public information, such as your profile information and public posts and activities, your photographs or any information you post to OurteenNetwork, even after you have deleted information from our services or deactivated your account.
Help with Google search visibility
Please note that Google and other search engines may index the words you type in your OurteenNetwork profile or in your public activities and posts, your photos, or any information you post to OurteenNetwork so that your profile or posts can appear in search results that include those terms.
Google and other third-party search engines use a variety of factors to generate search results, such as the content of OurteenNetwork public posts and profiles, OurteenNetwork has no control over the results of third-party search engines.
Why do my profile, post, activities... still appear on Google after I have deleted them?
Even if you delete posts, images, activities, Google and other search engines cache search results, which means that sometimes old information will still appear in searches until Google and other search engines update their systems with newer information.
Any outdated link that appears in a Google search will lead to the 404 OurteenNetwork error page: That page doesn't exist! Outdated links keep appearing because Google and other search engines may not have the current information in their search indexes.
