By granting us access to any Third-Party Accounts, you understand that (1) we may access, make available, and store (if applicable) any content that you have provided to and stored in your Third-Party Account (the “Social Network Content”) so that it is available on and through the Site via your account, including without limitation any friend lists and (2) we may submit to and receive from your Third-Party Account additional information to the extent you are notified when you link your account with the Third-Party Account.
Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts may be available on and through your account on the Site.
Please note that if a Third-Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or our access to such Third-Party Account is terminated by the third-party service provider, the Social Network Content may no longer be available on and through the Site. You will have the ability to disable the connection between your account on the Site and your Third-Party Accounts at any time.
PLEASE NOTE: That your relationship with the third-party service providers associated with your third-party accounts is governed solely by your agreement(s) with such third-party service providers.

We will attempt to delete any information stored on our servers that was obtained through such a Third-Party Account, except the username and profile picture that becomes associated with your account.
“Confidential Information” means the information that we designate as confidential at the time of disclosure or that should reasonably be understood to be our confidential information, including all of our business information. Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) is or becomes generally available to the public through no act or omission by you or breach by you of this Agreement; (ii) at the time of disclosure by us, was lawfully received by you from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to us or the source of such information; or (iii) was or is independently developed by you without the use of or reference to the Confidential Information. Confidential Information disclosed before you accepted this Agreement will be subject to this Section 12.

You may disclose Confidential Information to comply with applicable law, provided that you give us prior notice of the compelled disclosure or legal proceeding (to the extent permitted by law) and reasonable assistance to and cooperation with us, at our cost, if we desire to contest the disclosure. You and we agree that money damages are an inadequate remedy for breach of the obligations in this Section 12 and that any such breach would result in irreparable harm to us. Therefore, in the event of any such actual or threatened breach, we will be entitled, in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us at law or equity, to seek specific performance or injunctive relief without the posting of a bond.
