People and accounts you share and communicate with.
When you share and communicate using our site, you choose the audience for what you share. For example, when you post, you select the audience for the post, such as a group, all of your friends, the public, or a customized list of people. Your network can also see actions you have taken on our site. We also let other accounts see who has viewed their stories.
It can be seen by anyone, including if they don't have an account. This includes your username, any information you share with a public audience; information in your public profile; and content you share on a page or any other public forum. Public information can also be seen, accessed, reshared, or downloaded through third-party services such as search engines, APIs.
Content others share or reshare about you.
It would be best if you considered whom you choose to share with, because people who can see your activity on our site can choose to share it with others, including people outside the audience you shared with. For example, when you share a post or send a message to specific friends or accounts, they can download, screenshot, or reshare that content to others. Also, when you comment on someone else's post or react to their content, your comment or reaction is visible to anyone who can see the other person's content, and that person can change the audience later.
Law enforcement or legal requests.
We share information with law enforcement or in response to legal requests.
How can I manage or delete information about me?
We provide you with the ability to access, rectify, port, and erase your data.
We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services or until your account is deleted - whichever comes first. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs.
When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as your photos and status updates, and you won't be able to recover that information later. Information that others have shared about you isn't part of your account and won't be deleted. To delete your account at any time, please visit the Settings page on your account.
