Your Profile on the DEED Website
When you register in Deed Website you provide us with your email address. Once you have registered on the Deed Website we will give you the opportunity to connect with your friends and other acquaintances. You will be able to provide personal information about yourself (to add a picture of yourself, set your name, family, gender, web-site, etc.) or provide your comments on various matters, including in your status updates.
One of the primary reasons to register in Deed is to share content with others. Examples include the situations in which you accept challenge or send challenge to others, update your challenge status, upload or take a photo, upload or record a video, make a comment, write something on your Profile Page, write a note, or send someone a message. If you do not want such personal information to be shared publicly, you should not upload this to Deed Website. If you do not want us to store metadata associated with the content you share on Deed Website (such as photos), please remove the metadata before uploading the content. Ultimately, and providing that you comply with the DEED Terms and Conditions, you will be able to decide and manage what information (subject to minimum requirements) is displayed on your Profile Page.
We may access and use the information on your Profile Page to monitor proper usage of the feature in accordance with the DEED Terms and Conditions to check for ways in which we can improve the feature and its offerings.
