Please note that the real name you choose will be used to identify you when you use the Services. Your real name will be included along with any information you submit for posting (such as traffic reports or chat messages). It will therefore be visible to others.
You may also provide additional information that will be used to personalize the Services and enhance your experience with the Services. For example, if you provide us with your "home" and "work" information, we may provide you with what we think is the shortest route between those locations. Further information may be collected when Carmetry exchanges communications with you, for example, if you submit a request, contact Carmetry's support team, or report a violation to the abuse team.
The Services are based on a community of users publicly sharing information with Carmetry and with other members of that community.
In particular, users choose to share personal information such as name, age, gender, picture, their location information and reports. This information may be shared either directly to the Service and to all users, such as in the case of traffic reports, or just to your friends on Carmetry via the ‘find friends' feature . This information may also be shared via third party services (such as social networks) which interact with the Service upon such users' choice.
The content that you share to all users is neither private nor confidential and you should not have any expectation of privacy with respect to it. Information you upload will be posted along with other personal information. Certain road incidents
￼you report may include your driving path within the vicinity of those incidents. Therefore, you must exercise caution and common sense when submitting information. At the very least you should demonstrate the same degree of caution as when publishing personal information by means other than the Internet and cellular services. Any content that you submit for posting, may be viewed by all users of the Services and by Carmetry.
In any event (but except as detailed below with respect to information shared from your social network accounts according to your privacy settings for such social network accounts), your email address will not be visible to others through any reports or user posts that you share or upload.
We, at Carmetry, take great measures to provide you with the best experience you can have while using the Service. However, Carmetry has no control over the conduct of any user and disclaims all liability in this regard. Users are advised to carefully and thoroughly consider whether or not to make public or available any information and carefully examine all necessary details related to any communication with other users prior to any engagement or communication being made.

Similarly, you may choose to have personal information and other content about you available from Carmetry, including your location and route information, transmitted to and shared through your social network account.
When you connect to the social network account through the Services for the first time or otherwise make the Services interact with your social network account, you will be asked to permit the social network to share your personal information stored on such social network with the Services. We collect your information from your social network account only in accordance with your privacy settings you have set up under your social network accounts.
Accordingly we only collect such information which you allowed the social network(s) to share with third parties (such as your name, email address, list of friends, profile picture, other information you make publicly available via the applicable social network). You understand that the Services may access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the third party social network and authorized by you) such information so that it is available on and through your Account. For example, Carmetry may allow you to share your location with your Facebook friends, via the Application.
Please note that certain information which you have defined as private on your third party social network accounts may become public to other Carmetry Users through the Services if you have defined such information to be public on the Services. For example, if you designate your social network username as "private"in your social network account (to the extent possible under said settings), but have elected to set your Carmetry account settings as public, then the username will become public on the Carmetry service.
