8. Ability to View Your Information When you register a GuidePal Account, your Social Network friends will be notified of your use of GuidePal Services. Your Social Network friends with GuidePal accounts will then be able to access the information you have published on the GuidePal Platform. It is up to you to make sure that you are comfortable with the information that you choose to provide to GuidePal and the information you choose to publish either directly on the GuidePal Platform or through your Social Network, which is connected to the GuidePal Platform. You acknowledge that when you use GuidePal Services, certain information that you post or provide through the GuidePal Platform (such as your name, profile, comments, collections and reviews,) may be shared with other users and posted on publicly available portions of the GuidePal Platform, including, without limitation, social media applications and other public forums in which you choose to participate. Please keep in mind that if you choose to disclose Personal Data when posting comments or other information or content through the GuidePal Platform, this information may become publicly available and may be collected and used by others, including people outside the GuidePal Platform.
