Sharing of Your Personal Information within the Qwiqq Community
Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. Qwiqq may share your Personal Information only as described below.
Your "friends" can see the location and time of each of your posts and your Personal Information, including your first name and last name, email, photo, hometown, and links to your Twitter and Facebook accounts (if you have connected those accounts to your Qwiqq account). Friends reading this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in your written comments or posts. We are not responsible for Personal Information that you voluntarily choose to display or exchange with others using the Service. We are not responsible for information that you may elect to exchange outside of the Service.
Information Shared with Everyone:

In addition to the data sharing described above, we may enter into relationships with a variety of businesses and work closely with them.

You can easily recognize when one of these businesses is associated with your transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such transactions with that business, unless you have elected not to be solicited by marketing partners during the registration process or through the account settings page.
In the event that Qwiqq enters into any change of control, asset sale, or similar transaction, all data and rights related to the Service, or in the unlikely event that Qwiqq goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, your information, including Personal Information, would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
