Privacy


Facebake Principles
Here at facebake, privacy is one of our top concerns. We don't just make it an objective, we make it a priority.

We understand that being a member of a website based on an "underground" culture carries with it certain risks. Risks to ones jobs, relationships, and reputation. And while "we" understand the benigness of our ways, there are those among us in our societies who do not. This is why Facebake has been built from the ground-up with security and privacy in mind.

If you are still not convinced of our dedication to your privacy, here are just a few of the steps we have taken to ensure your protection:
1) We do not require you to divulge your real name
Your account is identified only by an account "username", a valididated email address, and a "display name". Your real name is not required. Of course, you can always enter your full name in your profile settings to help your friends find you on facebake! However, that decision is yours.
2) None of your information is made "public"
Unlike some other social networking sites, any profile information entered in Facebake is not designed to be viewed by web crawlers, search engines, or the "general public". In order to access any user profile data stored in facebake you must be a member of facebake.
3) You chose who sees what
Facebake was built to encorporate multiple levels of privacy on every section of content. Every profile setting and "nugget" has an individual privacy setting allowing you to control who sees what. In addition to letting you limit content visible to your friends, facebake allows you to setup custom "collections" of users for privacy control. Only want your closest friends to see your status? Put them in a custom collection and set your status's privacy settings to only allow them access. It's that simple.

Use of information obtained by facebake
When you register with Facebake, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your "display name", profile picture and thumbnail are displayed to people who search for you to enable you to connect with people on Facebake.

Profile information is used by Facebake 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. In some cases where your privacy settings permit it, other Facebake users may be able to supplement your profile.

Profile information you submit to Facebake will be available to users of Facebake who belong to at least one of the collections you allow to access the information through your privacy settings. Your "Display name" and profile picture avatar will always be available in search results across the Facebake site and pieces of your profile may be made available to other users based on your privacy settings. We do not take responsibility for the misuse or divulgence of personal information that you submit to facebake. Please use care when setting your privacy settings and submitting personal information.

Facebake may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. We may occasionally use your email address to send you notifications regarding services offered by Facebake that we think you may find valuable.

Facebake 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 geographical location like a certain type of music and personalizing advertisements and promotions so that we can provide you a better experience. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, they're more likely to be interesting to you.

External Links
Facebake may contain links to other websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Third Party Advertisers
Advertisements that appear on Facebake are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" (also known as "1x1 gifs") to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. Facebake does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on Facebake unless you choose to share it with them.

This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Facebake and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.

In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred.
