If you are tagged in any Event Photos (as defined below), you will also have the ability to remove any such tags.

Among other things, we may use guests’ contact information to offer guests the opportunity to contact each other through the Site.

Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
Paperless Post is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Other Users/Event Guests:
Paperless Post offers public and private guests lists and creates an event page for every event. For any event with a public guest list, Paperless Post may display the names of guests to other invited guests of the same event before the start time of that event. For any event with a private guest list, Paperless Post will not display the names of invited guests to other invited guests before the event. At the start time of an event with either a public or private guest list, Paperless Post may display on the event page the names of those event guests that indicated that they would attend (“Attendees”) to other Attendees of that event. The Host of an event with a private guest list may opt-out of the sharing of Attendee names on that event page. Event Photos may be uploaded to that event page by the Host or any Attendee. The Host or Attendees can then view and “tag” people using the guest list for that event. An Attendee does not have to be a logged-in Member to view or be tagged in Event Photos. Only Attendees who are Members may upload Event Photos and tag and add comments. Paperless Post will notify any Attendee when they are tagged in Event Photos. Attendees will have the option of removing any tags of themselves in any Event Photo at their discretion.
Paperless Post may also combine guest list information among all events to identify the number of times any two users and/or event guests have been Attendees at events. Members may have access to certain information on Attendees, such as the number of events the Member and that Attendee have both attended. If you do not consent to us disclosing such information to your Co-Attendees, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paperless Post may also offer users and/or event guests the opportunity to contact each other through the Site. We may use guests’ contact information to notify guests that an Attendee has requested that Paperless Post facilitate electronic contact with that guest through the Site. In facilitating this electronic contact through the Site, Paperless Post will not intentionally disclose guest contact information but will provide the means for users, guests and Attendees to communicate through the Site but will not disclose guests’ email addresses with other guests unless a guest opts-in to accept a specific guest’s request for his or her email address.
Any User Content that you post to the Site may be displayed to other users; for example, Attendees to an event you attended may see Event Photos that you post to an event page. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other users who may view your User Content, so do not post any User Content that you wish to keep private.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties:
Paperless Post, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, analyzing data, marketing, and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function, and they may only use such information for our benefit and the purposes for which they were engaged.
As we develop our business, we might sell, buy or merge businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
