Terms of Service; Didn't Read

“I have read and agree to the Terms” is the biggest lie on the web. We aim to fix that.

Welcome to our edit tool

Using this online tool, you can help to update the content of the ToS;DR website. Below are the most recent changes people have made. Above, you can see the menu bar, where you can navigate to the list of Services, or the Points search page.

How it works

A service is a website or online application, for instance YouTube. A case is an individual remark that can form part of the review of a service, for instance "you need to be 13 years old to use this service"; each is assigned a topic to provide grouping. A point links a case to a service, for instance "you need to be 13 years old to use YouTube".

To review a service's terms and conditions, first make sure the service is listed, and contact us if it isn't. Then read the actual terms and policies you have to agree to to use this service, and make a note about anything that you find remarkable. Find the existing case for each of these review remarks, or create it if necessary, and create a point to add that case as a remark in the review of the service. Use the checklist to see if you forgot to review any aspects.

Then you need to wait for a curator to approve your changes, after which your review will show up on https://tosdr.org, will be picked up by the ToS;DR browser extensions, and included in DuckDuckGo's Privacy Grade, for which our API is one of several input factors. For services whose terms and policies are tracked by ToSBack, you can try out our experimental annotate view.

This tool is still very much under construction, and has bugs. Please open a github issue for anything you think should be improved.

Information</b>.\nWe, as well as third parties that provide content, advertising, or other functionality on the Services, may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other technologies (“Technologies”) to automatically collect information through the Services.\nTechnologies are essentially small data files placed on your devices that allow us and our partners to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our Services.</p>\n<ul>\n<li>\n<b>Cookies</b>.\nCookies are small text files placed in device browsers to store their preferences.\nMost browsers allow you to block and delete cookies.\nHowever, if you do that, the Services may not work properly.</li>\n<li>\n<b>Pixel Tags/Web Beacons</b>.\nA pixel tag (also known as a web beacon) is a piece of code embedded in the Services that collects information about engagement on the Services.\nThe use of a pixel tag allows us to record, for example, that a user has visited a particular web page or clicked on a particular advertisement.\nWe may also include web beacons in e-mails to understand whether messages have been opened, acted on, or forwarded.</li>\n<li>\n<b>Flash Cookies</b>.\nWe may, in certain situations, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as video clips or animation.\nTo improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (commonly known as “Flash cookies”) are employed to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences.\nFlash cookies are stored on your device, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by your web browser.\nThis means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies at the browser level, in the same way you would manage cookies.\nInstead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website directly.\nThe Adobe website provides comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies.\nPlease be aware that if you disable or reject Flash

We want you to understand when and with whom we and service providers working on our behalf may share information about you that is collected through our Services.</p> <p> <strong> <em>User Materials.</em> </strong> Any User Materials you submit through our Contact Us page, social networking services or similar features can be seen, collected and used by us and anyone else who has access to the applicable service. Such information is likely to become public and we cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use. Any User Materials you submit may also be freely used and shared by NPR and its Member stations and their respective licensees in accordance with our Terms of Use.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Member stations.</em> </strong> NPR may share your name, email address, other contact information, and information about your listening activity, donations and interests with the Member stations that are associated with your account or that are local to you. When we do so, we require those Member stations to commit to the same policies regarding further sharing with third parties that we follow under this Privacy Policy. If you do not want us to share your name, contact information, or other information, including information about your donations to NPR, with Member stations, you can contact us any time. However, if you choose to donate to an NPR Member station through our Services, your information may be collected directly by that Member station. In that case, the collection of your information is subject to that Member station's privacy policy.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Authorized service providers and vendors.</em> </strong> We may share any information we collect with service providers or vendors who provide us with specialized services or otherwise help us operate our Services including, without limitation, service providers or vendors that provide customer support, email deployment, account sign-in services, payment processing, order fulfillment, analytics, marketing, suppression list management, contest management and data processing services. Subject to applicable law and your opt-out choices described below, and as we deem appropriate, we may share with vendors or allow them to collect directly information about your devices and your use of our Services. We will not share your name or contact information with these vendors. These vendors may use such information pursuant to their own respective privacy policies, which we do not control. For example, we may share or authorize the collection of such information by vendors that help us analyze and improve our Services or tailor sponsorship credits to your interests. Our service providers and vendors include the service providers' or vendors' subcontractors that provide specialized services to us or otherwise help us operate our Services. If you wish to make a payment or receive a refund through our Services, your information will be collected and controlled by the payment processor and not by us and will be subject to that payment service provider's privacy policy and practices. </p> <p> <strong> <em>Authorized third-party applications.</em> </strong> We may share with authorized third-party applications information that you provide directly through our Services and information collected automatically through technology for the purpose of providing certain NPR Services to you on the applications. In such cases, the information that we share may include your name, favorite stations, and listening activity. NPR prohibits the third-party developers of those applications from accessing, storing or sharing any such non-public information. However, please be aware that your use of the third-party application is otherwise subject to the third-party application's privacy policy, which we do not control and which may differ significantly from ours. NPR is not responsible for the privacy practices of any third-party application and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any third-party sites, applications, platforms, and services that you visit or access.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Business transfers.</em> </strong> We may share any collected information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of an NPR Service or division, a merger, a consolidation, an asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Legal requirements.</em> </strong> We and service providers working on our behalf may disclose any collected information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, and other law enforcement measures, and to comply with legal or regulatory obligations.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Protect our Services and users.</em> </strong> We and service providers working on our behalf may disclose any collected information to enforce our Terms of Use and to protect and defend the legal rights, interests, and safety of NPR, NPR Member stations, their respective employees, agents, contractors, sponsors, listeners and users, members of the general public, or others.</p> <p> <strong> <em>With your consent.</em> </strong> We and service providers working on our behalf may share any collected information when you expressly or implicitly consent to such disclosure. For example, if you use our Services to email or text a story to a friend, we would disclose your name to that friend together with the content you directed us to send.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers.</em> </strong> Wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers also may collect contact and other information and precise location data from our mobile services users through processes we do not control. You should check the privacy policies of your wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers for additional information.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Podcast producers.</em> </strong> We may share with third-party producers listening and other data that does not identify you that we collect through your interaction with the podcasts and other media files produced by those third-party producers.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Bitly.</em> </strong> <em> </em>NPR uses a service called Bitly to create shortened uniform resource locators ("URLs" – the "addresses" of individual web pages) for our content so that it can be shared easily, particularly through social media. Bitly collects information as our shortened URLs are shared and clicked on, including IP addresses, general location information, the time and day each shortened URL is accessed, and the social media or other channels through which our content is shared. If you have established a separate account with Bitly, Bitly may associate the foregoing information with personal information it has stored in your Bitly account in accordance with Bitly's own privacy policy. To share our content without using Bitly, copy the full URL of the story you want to share from your browser and paste it into your email, text or social media message.</p> <p> <strong> <em>Aggregated and anonymous information.</em> </strong> Subject to applicable law and your opt-out choices described below, and as we deem appropriate, we may share with third parties or allow them to collect directly aggregated or other information that is not reasonably linkable to you or your device.

Service Provider.</li>\n<li>The website, application, platform or service you visited before and after visiting an NPR Service.</li>\n<li>Search terms you enter using the NPR Services or on a referring website.</li>\n<li>Your approximate geographic location information (derived from request header information, such as your IP address) and/or more precise information about the specific location of your device if you have given NPR explicit consent to receive this information for an NPR application on your mobile device.</li>\n<li>The make, model, carrier and unique device identifier for your mobile device, the unique advertising identifier (for example, the Apple IDFA (Identifier for Advertisers) or Google Advertising ID) that allows mobile applications running on your mobile device to gather data for purposes of serving targeted advertising or personalized or \"interest-based\" sponsorship credits, and other information about your computer or mobile device and its browser, operating system, settings and software.</li>\n<li>Automobile make (for certain connected car platforms).</li>\n<li>The dates, times, duration, and frequency of your interactions with our Services.</li>\n<li>Your navigation path through the NPR Services, including any \"favorites\" you select, and patterns in the paths you take.</li>\n<li>A list of files you download, listen to, view, email, text or otherwise share and other content preferences.</li>\n<li>The amount of time spent listening to or viewing media files or pages.</li>\n<li>Listening data collected both when you download and listen to podcasts or other media files.\nListening data includes descriptions of the title, episodes, segments and sponsorship credits included in a podcast or other media file, time and date stamps for download and playback events (for example, when a file is downloaded and when playback of a particular segment or sponsorship credit starts, stops, is skipped or is paused), the mobile advertising identifier for your device (for example, the Apple IDFA or Google Advertising ID), session IDs and information about the device or platform used to download or play a particular file.\nThe producers of any independently produced podcasts we distribute may also collect the same types of listening data subject to their own privacy policies, which may differ from ours.</li>\n<li>Information about your interactions with our email messages, such as links you click on and whether you open or forward a message, the date and time of these interactions, and information about the computer or device you use to read emails.</li>\n<li>Any errors you encountered during your use of our Services.</li>\n</ul>\n<p>Our Services also make use of third-party analytics, cookie data collection and linking services (collectively \"Analytics Services\"), including Google Universal Analytics, Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, Remarketing with Google Analytics, and Google Ad Manager.\nThese Analytics Services may use cookies, pixel tags, and other tracking and storage technologies to collect or receive information (not including your name or the email address you register with NPR) from our Services and elsewhere on the Internet and use that information to analyze and measure our audience and target and evaluate the effectiveness of sponsorship credits.\nFor example, NPR and Analytics Services may use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the Remarketing with Google Analytics and DoubleClick cookies) together to inform, optimize, and serve sponsorship credits based on your past interactions with our Services and other websites or services.\nIn addition, we may use analytics data, including but not limited to, geographic, demographic, and interest reporting information to recognize and understand user preferences, make improvements, and for other operational purposes.\nAn Analytics Service's ability to use and share analytics information is covered by that service's terms of use and privacy policy.\nTo learn more about how Google uses data, visit

working on our behalf may share information about you that is collected through our Services.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>User Materials.</em>\n</strong> Any User Materials you submit through our Contact Us page, social networking services or similar features can be seen, collected and used by us and anyone else who has access to the applicable service.\nSuch information is likely to become public and we cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use.\nAny User Materials you submit may also be freely used and shared by NPR and its Member stations and their respective licensees in accordance with our Terms of Use.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Member stations.</em>\n</strong> NPR may share your name, email address, other contact information, and information about your listening activity, donations and interests with the Member stations that are associated with your account or that are local to you.\nWhen we do so, we require those Member stations to commit to the same policies regarding further sharing with third parties that we follow under this Privacy Policy.\nIf you do not want us to share your name, contact information, or other information, including information about your donations to NPR, with Member stations, you can contact us any time.\nHowever, if you choose to donate to an NPR Member station through our Services, your information may be collected directly by that Member station.\nIn that case, the collection of your information is subject to that Member station's privacy policy.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Authorized service providers and vendors.</em>\n</strong> We may share any information we collect with service providers or vendors who provide us with specialized services or otherwise help us operate our Services including, without limitation, service providers or vendors that provide customer support, email deployment, account sign-in services, payment processing, order fulfillment, analytics, marketing, suppression list management, contest management and data processing services.\nSubject to applicable law and your opt-out choices described below, and as we deem appropriate, we may share with vendors or allow them to collect directly information about your devices and your use of our Services.\nWe will not share your name or contact information with these vendors.\nThese vendors may use such information pursuant to their own respective privacy policies, which we do not control.\nFor example, we may share or authorize the collection of such information by vendors that help us analyze and improve our Services or tailor sponsorship credits to your interests.\nOur service providers and vendors include the service providers' or vendors' subcontractors that provide specialized services to us or otherwise help us operate our Services.\nIf you wish to make a payment or receive a refund through our Services, your information will be collected and controlled by the payment processor and not by us and will be subject to that payment service provider's privacy policy and practices.\n</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Authorized third-party applications.</em>\n</strong> We may share with authorized third-party applications information that you provide directly through our Services and information collected automatically through technology for the purpose of providing certain NPR Services to you on the applications.\nIn such cases, the information that we share may include your name, favorite stations, and listening activity.\nNPR prohibits the third-party developers of those applications from accessing, storing or sharing any such non-public information.\nHowever, please be aware that your use of the third-party application is otherwise subject to the third-party application's privacy policy, which we do not control and which may differ significantly from ours.\nNPR is not responsible for the privacy practices of any third-party application and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any third-party sites, applications, platforms, and services that you visit or access.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Business transfers.</em>\n</strong> We may share any collected information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of an NPR Service or division, a merger, a consolidation, an asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Legal requirements.</em>\n</strong> We and service providers working on our behalf may disclose any collected information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, and other law enforcement measures, and to comply with legal or regulatory obligations.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Protect our Services and users.</em>\n</strong> We and service providers working on our behalf may disclose any collected information to enforce our Terms of Use and to protect and defend the legal rights, interests, and safety of NPR, NPR Member stations, their respective employees, agents, contractors, sponsors, listeners and users, members of the general public, or others.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>With your consent.</em>\n</strong> We and service providers working on our behalf may share any collected information when you expressly or implicitly consent to such disclosure.\nFor example, if you use our Services to email or text a story to a friend, we would disclose your name to that friend together with the content you directed us to send.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers.</em>\n</strong> Wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers also may collect contact and other information and precise location data from our mobile services users through processes we do not control.\nYou should check the privacy policies of your wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers for additional information.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Podcast producers.</em>\n</strong> We may share with third-party producers listening and other data that does not identify you that we collect through your interaction with the podcasts and other media files produced by those third-party producers.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Bitly.</em>\n</strong>\n<em>\n</em>NPR uses a service called Bitly to create shortened uniform resource locators (\"URLs\" – the \"addresses\" of individual web pages) for our content so that it can be shared easily, particularly through social media.\nBitly collects information as our shortened URLs are shared and clicked on, including IP addresses, general location information, the time and day each shortened URL is accessed, and the social media or other channels through which our content is shared.\nIf you have established a separate account with Bitly, Bitly may associate the foregoing information with personal information it has stored in your Bitly account in accordance with Bitly's own privacy policy.\nTo share our content without using Bitly, copy the full URL of the story you want to share from your browser and paste it into your email, text or social media message.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Aggregated and anonymous information.</em>\n</strong> Subject to applicable law and your opt-out choices described below, and as we deem appropriate, we may share with third parties or allow them to collect directly aggregated or other information that is not reasonably linkable to you or your device.\nThese third parties may use such information pursuant to their own respective privacy policies, which we do not control.\nFor example, we may share or authorize the collection of such information by our service providers or our vendors that help us analyze and improve our Services, provide us and other digital media organizations with ratings and ranking data, or help us to create personalized content.\nWe may also share or authorize the collection of such information by sponsors or their agencies to help them measure the impact of their sponsorship campaigns.\n</p>\n<p>\n<strong>Your Choices</strong>\n</p>\n<p>You have the following choices to update, correct and limit the collection and use of information gathered through our Services.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Don't volunteer information.</em>\n</strong>\n<em>\n</em>If you do not consent to the collection, use or sharing of your contact and other information as described in this Privacy Policy, please do not use the NPR Services or provide information to us.\nBy using the NPR Services or providing information to us through the NPR Services, you are \"opting in\" to the collection, use and sharing of that information as described in this Privacy Policy.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Registration information</em>\n</strong>\n<strong>.</strong> Sign in to your NPR account or contact us to correct or update any registration information you provided to us, opt out of future email newsletters from us, or cancel your NPR account, NPR newsletter subscription or other NPR registrations.\nFor your protection, we may only act on requests with respect to the registration data associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may ask you to verify your identity before implementing your request.\nWe will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.\nWe may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a correction, update or cancellation.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Donation information</em>\n</strong>\n<strong>.</strong> If you are a donor to NPR and do not want us to share your name, contact information or other information with any Member station, you can opt out of such sharing at the time you make the donation or you can contact us any time.\nHowever, if you choose to donate to an NPR Member station through our Services, your information may be collected directly by that Member station.\nIn that case, the collection of your information is subject to that Member station's privacy policy.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>\n<em>Cookies.</em>\n</strong> You have the option to set your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, notify you when a cookie is set, or delete cookies.\nEach

non-\"interest-based\" sponsorship credits on NPR.org.\nGoogle also offers opt-out features to limit the use of your information for \"interest-based\" sponsorship credits at https://adssettings.google.com/.\n</p>\n<p>You also may adjust the settings on your device.\nFor iOS mobile devices, go to \"Settings\" from your device's home screen, scroll down to \"Privacy\", select \"Advertising\", and turn on \"Limit Ad Tracking.\" For Android mobile devices, go to \"Google Settings\" on your device, select \"Ads\".\nand check the box labeled \"Opt Out of Interest-Based Ads\" or \"Opt Out of Ads Personalization.\" (These device settings options may change in the future or otherwise may differ for certain devices.\nconsult your device manufacturer's support literature

privacy features.</p>\n<p>Note that if you opt out, you may still receive the same number of sponsorship credits as before but they may not be as relevant to your interests.\nOpting out of third-party \"interest-based\" sponsorship credits, and opting out of sharing of your information with our sponsorship vendor Google for delivery of \"interest-based\" sponsorship credits on NPR.org by pressing the opt-out button below, is a cookie-based process and will only affect the specific computer, device, and browser on which your opt-out choice is applied.\nIf you subsequently delete your browser cookies or if your browser cookies expire, you will need to opt out again.\nFor more information about opting out of \"interest-based\" messages, visit https://youradchoices.com/control.</p>\n<p>To opt out of the sharing of your information with our sponsorship vendor Google for delivery of \"interest-based\" sponsorship credits on NPR.org (as described above), press this button:</p> Opt Out <p>\n<strong>\n<em>Precise location information</em>\n</strong>\n<strong>.</strong> If you consent to our collection of your precise device location through an NPR mobile application, you can withdraw your consent at any time and prevent the further collection of your precise location by accessing the privacy settings of your mobile device and/or the settings of the NPR mobile application.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>Do Not Track</strong>\n</p>\n<p>We do not currently respond to browser do-not-track signals.\nInstead, we adhere to the standards set out in this Privacy Policy and offer the choices described above.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>Security</strong>\n</p>\n<p>We employ physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards in an effort to secure the information we collect.\nThese safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information.\nBecause no security system is impenetrable, however, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases or that information you supply will never be intercepted, accessed, or disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.\nBecause most email and mobile transmissions are not encrypted, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email, text messages, or other mobile transmissions.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>Links to and from Other Sites and Services</strong>\n</p>\n<p>Our Services contain links to other sites, applications, platforms and services operated by third parties whose privacy policies we don't control and may differ significantly from ours.\nFor instance, clicking or tapping on a sponsorship credit or some third-party logos on the NPR Services will take you to an entirely different site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that NPR would not.\nYou also may access NPR content and the NPR Services from a third-party site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that NPR would not.\nNPR is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these third-party services and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any such sites or services you visit or access.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>Social Networking Services Sign-in and Sharing Tools</strong>\n</p>\n<p>Our Services allow users to sign in to their NPR accounts using their credentials on social networking services such as Facebook and Google+ (each an \"SNS\").\nIf you sign in to our Services through an SNS, we will receive your email address and certain profile information from such SNS in accordance with its privacy policy and your SNS account privacy settings.\nAny information that we collect from your SNS account may depend on the privacy settings you have selected with that SNS, so please consult the applicable SNS's privacy and data policies to learn how to manage these settings.</p>\n<p>If you use tools on our Services that allow you to share stories or other content with your friends and followers on an SNS such as Facebook, Twitter, Flipboard, or Google+, that action and any information you share may be used by the SNS according to its own privacy policy.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>Changes to This Privacy Policy</strong>\n</p>\n<p>NPR reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time.\nAny changes will be posted to this page, so please check back periodically.\nYour use of our Services constitutes consent to the Privacy Policy then in effect.\nPlease read NPR's Terms of Use to understand additional terms and conditions that apply to your use of our Services.</p>\n<p>\n<strong>Users Outside the U.S.</strong>\n</p>\n<p>Our Services are controlled and operated within the United States.\nAny information we collect may be transferred to, and processed, stored, and accessed by, us, our service providers, and our vendors in the United States and in other jurisdictions where we, our service providers, or our vendors operate.\nThese jurisdictions may have data privacy laws that may not be as protective as those of your home jurisdiction, and courts and other authorities may, in certain circumstances, be entitled to access information about you subject to such data privacy laws.\nBy using the NPR Services, you agree to this transfer, processing, storage, and access of your information as described in this Privacy

For more information about opting out of "interest-based" messages, visit https://youradchoices.com/control.</p> <p>To opt out of the sharing of your information with our sponsorship vendor Google for delivery of "interest-based" sponsorship credits on NPR.org (as described above), press this button:</p> Opt Out <p> <strong> <em>Precise location information</em> </strong> <strong>.</strong> If you consent to our collection of your precise device location through an NPR mobile application, you can withdraw your consent at any time and prevent the further collection of your precise location by accessing the privacy settings of your mobile device and/or the settings of the NPR mobile application.</p> <p> <strong>Do Not Track</strong> </p> <p>We do not currently respond to browser do-not-track signals. Instead, we adhere to the standards set out in this Privacy Policy and offer the choices described above.</p> <p> <strong>Security</strong> </p> <p>We employ physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards in an effort to secure the information we collect. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information. Because no security system is impenetrable, however, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases or that information you supply will never be intercepted, accessed, or disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy. Because most email and mobile transmissions are not encrypted, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email, text messages, or other mobile transmissions.</p> <p> <strong>Links to and from Other Sites and Services</strong> </p> <p>Our Services contain links to other sites, applications, platforms and services operated by third parties whose privacy policies we don't control and may differ significantly from ours. For instance, clicking or tapping on a sponsorship credit or some third-party logos on the NPR Services will take you to an entirely different site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that NPR would not. You also may access NPR content and the NPR Services from a third-party site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that NPR would not. NPR is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these third-party services and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any such sites or services you visit or access.</p> <p> <strong>Social Networking Services Sign-in and Sharing Tools</strong> </p> <p>Our Services allow users to sign in to their NPR accounts using their credentials on social networking services such as Facebook and Google+ (each an "SNS"). If you sign in to our Services through an SNS, we will receive your email address and certain profile information from such SNS in accordance with its privacy policy and your SNS account privacy settings. Any information that we collect from your SNS account may depend on the privacy settings you have selected with that SNS, so please consult the applicable SNS's privacy and data policies to learn how to manage these settings.</p> <p>If you use tools on our Services that allow you to share stories or other content with your friends and followers on an SNS such as Facebook, Twitter, Flipboard, or Google+, that action and any information you share may be used by the SNS according to its own privacy policy.</p> <p> <strong>Changes to This Privacy Policy</strong> </p> <p>NPR reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will be posted to this page, so please check back periodically. Your use of our Services constitutes consent to the Privacy Policy then in effect. Please read NPR's Terms of Use to understand additional terms and conditions that apply to your use of our Services.</p> <p> <strong>Users Outside the U.S.</strong> </p> <p>Our Services are controlled and operated within the United States. Any information we collect may be transferred to, and processed, stored, and accessed by, us, our service providers, and our vendors in the United States and in other jurisdictions where we, our service providers, or our vendors operate. These jurisdictions may have data privacy laws that may not be as protective as those of your home jurisdiction, and courts and other authorities may, in certain circumstances, be entitled to access information about you subject to such data privacy laws. By using the NPR Services, you agree to this transfer, processing, storage, and access of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.</p> <p>NOTICE TO EU RESIDENTS: Our handling of information about EU residents is governed by the NPR Privacy Notice for EU Residents, effective May 25, 2018. This Privacy Policy does not apply to EU residents.</p> <p>NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: </p> <p>In this notice, NPR is providing additional information and choices to California residents.
