Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (“Statement,” “Terms,” or “SRR”) is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with LikeFolio. By using or accessing LikeFolio, you agree to this Statement.

LikeFolio abides by the policies of each of the social media platforms we integrate with including Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Privacy

Your privacy is very important to us. We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy, and to use it to help you make informed decisions.

We receive a number of different types of information about you, including:

Your information

Your information is the information that’s required when you sign up for the site, as well as the information you choose to share.

  • Registration information

When you sign up for LikeFolio, you are required to provide information such as your name and email address. You are also prompted to connect with other social media accounts, including Facebook, and Twitter (“social media sites”). We do not collect your password for these sites and abide by each of their terms and conditions of use.

  • Information you choose to share

Your information also includes the information you choose to share from LikeFolio to social media sites, such as when you share a change in portfolio value or stocks included in your portfolio. It also includes the information you choose to share when you take an action, such as when you add a friend or enable/disable stocks in your portfolio.

Your name, profile pictures, cover photos, and User ID are treated just like information you choose to make public.

We receive information about you and your friends from other social media sites such as liking a page, following a page, or the content of your posts.

When people use LikeFolio, such information is viewable if it is public (via settings or terms and conditions of use of the platform), and/or if you are connected with the viewing person (such as “friends” or “following”) on other social media sites.

Other information we receive about you

We also receive other types of information about you:

  • We receive data about you whenever you interact with LikeFolio, such as when you look at another person’s LikeFolio, search for a friend or a Page, click on, view or otherwise interact with things, contract with our preferred partner to start your investment portfolio, or make other purchases through LikeFolio.
  • When you post things on social media sites, we may receive additional related data (or metadata), such as the time, date, and place you made the post.
  • We receive data from the computer, mobile phone or other device you use to access LikeFolio, including when multiple users log in from the same device. This may include your IP address and other information about things like your internet service, location, or the type (including identifiers) of browser you use.
  • We receive data whenever you visit a game, application, or website that uses LikeFolio Platform or visit a site with a LikeFolio feature sometimes through cookies. This may include the date and time you visit the site; the web address, or URL, you’re on; technical information about the IP address, browser and the operating system you use; and, if you are logged in to LikeFolio, your User ID.

We also put together data from the information we already have about you and your friends. For example, we may put together data about you to determine which companies are the most mentioned among yourself and/or yourself and your friends. We may put together variations of your current portfolio to, for example, tell you companies you may be interested in investing in. We may also put together data about you to serve you ads that might be more relevant to you.

Public information

When we use the phrase “public information” we mean the information you choose to make public, as well as information that is always publicly available.

Information you choose to make public

Choosing to make your information public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone, including people off of LikeFolio, will be able to see it.

Choosing to make your information public also means that this information:

  • can be associated with you (i.e., your name, profile pictures, portfolio, User ID, username, etc.) even off LikeFolio;
  • can show up when someone does a search on LikeFolio or on a public search engine;
  • will be accessible to the LikeFolio-integrated games, applications, and websites you and your friends use; and
  • will be accessible to anyone who uses our API.

When you share a post with social media sites the privacy policy and settings of those social media sites determine the privacy of the post.

Information that is always publicly available

The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and are treated just like information you decided to make public.

  • Name

This helps your friends find you.

  • Profile Pictures

These help your friends recognize you.

  • Username and User ID

These allow you to give out a custom link to your LikeFolio and help make LikeFolio possible.

Usernames and User IDs

A Username (or LikeFolio URL) is a custom link to LikeFolio that you can give out to people or post on external websites. Usernames appear in the URL on your timeline. We also use your User ID to identify your LikeFolio account.

If someone has your Username or User ID, they may be able to use it to access information about you through the LikeFolio.com website. For example, if someone has your Username, they can type LikeFolio.com/Username into their browser and see your public information as well as anything else you’ve let them see.

How we use the information we receive

We use the information we receive about you in connection with the services and features we provide to you and other users like your friends and developers. For example, in addition to helping people see and find things that you do and share, we may use the information we receive about you:

  • as part of our efforts to keep LikeFolio products, services and integrations safe and secure;
  • to protect LikeFolio’s or others’ rights or property;
  • to make suggestions to you and other users on LikeFolio, such as: suggesting friends; and
  • for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement.

Granting us this permission not only allows us to provide LikeFolio as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the information we receive about you in new ways.

While you are allowing us to use the information we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don’t share information we receive about you with others unless we have:

  • received your permission;
  • given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or
  • removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it.

Of course, for information others share about you once you share any LikeFolio post on social media sites, they control how it is shared.

We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Typically, information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted.

Deleting your account

If you want to stop using your account, you can delete it.

When you delete an account, it is permanently deleted from LikeFolio. You should only delete your account if you are sure you never want to reactivate it. You can delete your account.

Certain information is needed to provide you with services, so we only delete this information after you delete your account. Some of the things you do on or through LikeFolio aren’t stored in your account, like sharing on a social media site. That information remains after you delete your account.

  1. Sharing Your Content and Information

You own all of the content and information on LikeFolio, and you can control how it is shared through your settings. In addition:

  1. When you use LikeFolio, we may ask for your permission to access your content and information as well as content and information that others have shared with you.
