Some linked network (i.e.Facebook, Twitter or Google), provide their users with access to applications or other tools, such as "social login", which allow that website's users to share specific personal information with us. These Linked Networks may also appear in your profile so that people can find you on these Linked Networks. The specific information provided to us by Linked Networks is determined by these third parties and may vary by network. In all cases, the permissions page for the Linked Network will describe the information being shared. You should consult their respective privacy policies for information about their practices. You may choose to use information from the Linked Network to populate your profile on the MartialConnection.com and help you find and follow your contacts on the Martial Connection Platform.

THIRD PARTY AD SERVERS AND NETWORKS
We may allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on the Services. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer or other devices. Doing this allows them to recognize your computer or device each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer or device, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. We may share specific limited categories of information about you, such as your gender, age or geographic location, with ad networks to help them deliver more relevant advertisements through their ad networks.

You are responsible for all uses of your password, whether or not you have authorized such use.
