The Information We Collect
. If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. YouModels stores this information to send this one- time email, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at [email protected]
to request that we remove this information from our database. YouModels may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the YouModels service through the operation of the service (e.g., photo tags) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience. By using YouModels, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in Sweden.
Children Under Age 16
YouModels does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 16 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 16, please do not attempt to register for YouModels or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 16 may provide any personal information to or on YouModels. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us at [email protected]
Children Between the Ages of 16 and 18
We recommend that minors over the age of 16 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
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).

YouModels users may modify or delete any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account. Information will be updated immediately.

It is however each member's responsibility; to protect against unauthorized access to your details; to ensure against use by anyone else of the YouModels service through the machine that member uses while they are logged on to the YouModels service; to log off or exit from the YouModels service when not using it; and to keep her/his password secret. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services.
