4. HOW WE SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may share the information we collect, including your personal information, as follows:
4.1 Communicating Within the htacompanies.com Site
The Site and Services may include a social service which offers many ways to find, enjoy, and share content, and we enable and encourage users to explore who else is using the Site and the Services and their public profiles. Most of your htacompanies.com information is or may be publicly available to others by default, such as your name and/or username, profile picture, type of subscription (if any), your relationships and your activity, including the transportation services that you use, third party applications you add or use and user content you post, upload and/or contribute to the Site. Your activity on the Site may automatically appear in the activity feed of friends and users who may follow you or the content on your htacompanies.com profile.
htacompanies.com may use your public information to promote the Site and the Services and to help others find and follow you and/or your htacompanies.com profile content, including, without limitation, through Other Integrated Services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google Plus. We may sell your information to third party marketing companies, subject to applicable laws.
4.2 Sharing with Third Party Services
If you connect your htacompanies.com account to a third party service, the default setting may allow htacompanies.com to automatically share your activity and activity-related stories with that service, including the outside third party services that you use. You understand that such information may be attributed to your account on such third party services and may be published on such service.
htacompanies.com may also enable you to share a particular item of content with third party services or other htacompanies.com users. Please note that sharing of such content on a third party service may be posted as activity on the Site, regardless of your account settings. To share an individual item of content to a third party service, you’ll be prompted to enter your access credentials for that third party service. htacompanies.com may store your username and an access token or similar credentials obtained from the third party service, so that you are able to share particular items of content, on that third party service, on an individual basis, without entering your access credentials again.
4.3 Sharing with Third Party Applications
To personalize your experience, we may share some information we have collected about you with providers of third party applications, such as high-level geographic information, your transportation preferences, settings and technical data. However, we take precautions to prohibit third party application providers from attempting to identify you by using the information we provide to them or by collecting additional information without your consent.
Please note that if you:
- actively choose to provide third party applications with additional information, such as by visiting a third party application (which enables collection of your IP address), dragging and dropping information from the Site into a third party application, or allowing us to share precise geographic data which third party application providers request from us; or
- consent to collection of additional information about you by a third party application provider when you for example register with or log in to the third party application,
