    8. Some of these cookies may be connected to third party companies, websites, programmes or applications. The terms of use of such cookies are governed by this Privacy Policy and the privacy policy of the relevant third party company.

    1. YummyBank may at its sole discretion offer any of the following free services on the Platform, which you may select to use or receive at your option. Certain of the following services may require you to provide additional personal information as detailed below:
    2. Electronic Newsletters
    3. We may offer a free electronic newsletter to our Registered Users. We will gather the e-mail addresses of users who sign up to the mailing list for this newsletter. Registered Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by opting out of receiving newsletters during the registration process or by changing their preferences in the relevant profile settings page on the Platform.
    4. "Send To A Friend"
    5. We may install a feature that allows our Platform users to voluntarily choose to electronically forward a link, page, or document to someone else by clicking "send to a friend." To do so, the user must provide his e-mail address or phone number, as well as the e-mail address or phone number of the recipient. The user's e-mail address and phone number is used only in the case of transmission errors and to let the recipient know who the sender of the e-mail is. The information is not used for any other purpose.
    6. Polling
    7. We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues, and/or the Platform. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. We may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
    8. Surveys
    9. We may conduct user surveys from time to time to better target our content to our Platform users. We will not share individual responses from these surveys with any third party. We may share aggregate data with third party service providers, partners, and other third parties. We may also post aggregate data containing survey responses on our Platform. This data may be viewed and downloaded by other users of our Platform.
    1. We may share the information that we collect about you, including your personal information, as stated in the rest of this section.
    2. Disclosure to Other Registered Users of Our Platform
    3. The Platform facilitates your sharing of personal information with others in order to facilitate and complete the transaction for YummyServices. If you agree to contract for YummyServices with another Registered User, you may need to reveal your name, e-mail address, phone number, and/or address to that Registered User so that the YummyServices may be performed.
    4. Please respect the privacy of others. You agree to use the information of other Registered Users solely for purposes related to YummyBank transactions.
    5. Information Disclosed to Protect Us and Others
    6. We may disclose your personal information to prevent an emergency, protect or enforce our rights, enforce the Terms of Use and/or to protect the safety of users of our Platform or our Services or protect or enforce the rights of a third party, or as required by law.
    7. Information Disclosed To Third Party Service Providers and Business Partners
    8. We may contract with third parties for the provision and maintenance of the Platform, Services and our business operations. We may also need to share your personal information and data generated by cookies and aggregate information with these third parties. For example, we may provide your information to a credit card processing company to process your payment. The third parties will not receive any right to use your personal information beyond what is necessary to perform their obligations to provide the YummyServices to you.
    9. If you complete a survey, we also may share your information with the survey provider. If we offer a survey in conjunction with another entity, we may also disclose the results of the survey to that entity.
