We do not collect, store or have access to any social media profile passwords Users may use to login to our site. If a User logs in with a social media profile we cannot gather any social media profile data unless the User gives us the proper permissions via the standard social media interface protocol. Despite User permission, we are only able gather basic data, including, but not limited to, name, gender, friend list and tweets (depending on the type of social media). If we require more information we will seek User permission first via the standard protocol. We will not have access to the User’s alternative social media profiles in such a way that we could make posts for the User or conduct standard user activities for the User.
