Use of Information Obtained by YouModels
When you register with YouModels, you create your own profile and privacy settings.
Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to
people specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with people on
YouModels. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you
notifications regarding new services offered by YouModels that we think you may find
valuable. As a part of the YouModels service newsletter are also sent out. Profile
information is used by YouModels primarily to be presented back to and edited by you
when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that
information by your privacy settings. Profile information you submit to YouModels will
be available to users of YouModels in your network. Your name, network names, and
profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the YouModels
network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party
search engines. This is primarily so your friends can find you and send a friend request.
People who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access your profile
information unless they have a relationship to you (friend, friend of friend, member of
your groups, etc.) that allows such access based on your privacy settings. YouModels
may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general
operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message, you may
receive an email alerting you to that fact. Generally, you may opt out of such emails
through sending an email to [email protected]
, though YouModels reserves the
right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email
notifications. YouModels may use information in your profile without identifying you
as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many
people in a network like a band or movie and personalizing advertisements and
promotions so that we can provide you YouModels. We believe this benefits you. You
can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, there
are more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you put a favorite location in
your profile, we might serve you an advertisement highlighting a special event at that
location. But we don't tell the event organizer who you are. We may use information
about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers
and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, YouModels Platform
developers and other users of YouModels, to supplement your profile. Where such
information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your privacy settings that you
do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this
information to your profile (e.g., removing photo tag links).
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
YouModels is a lot about sharing information with other connections at YouModels
while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your
information. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and
connections through YouModels. Our architecture and 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 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3)
permitted by you. For example:

your friends and network members according to your privacy settings.

service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about YouModels,

services, to offer an online job application process, 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 use 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 YouModels-specified

the YouModels world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., messaging is
disabled) and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse.

subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal
information except where required by law. 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 YouModels
service or using the YouModels name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may
include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government

providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers.

with your use of that store or service.

business units owned by Lilja Models AB, were to change, your user information may be
transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer
