Account Settings and User Generated Content You should be aware that any information You submit to the Website can be read, collected, or used by other users or third parties visiting your user profile. WE DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU CHOOSE TO SUBMIT TO THE WEBSITE.

Through our Service, Smashrun enables You, if You choose, to share information with others, as this is a crucial component of positive social reinforcement. SMASHRUN IS DEDICATED TO PROVIDING YOU WITH FULL CONTROL OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA. Smashrun's default settings for new users are set to PUBLIC, which allows anyone to see your “Run Overview” pages, “Ranks,” “Badges,” and your “Invite” page. However, You can always opt to maintain as PRIVATE your Smashrun user profile within your settings. We encourage You to consider this privacy setting before sharing information on the Website.

Generally, Smashrun encourages search engine access to the Website and instructs search engines to index “public” user profile pages. SETTING YOUR PROFILE TO “PRIVATE” PREVENTS SEARCH ENGINES FROM INDEXING YOUR PAGE.

You are always in control of your privacy settings. To hide your stats from everyone and to tell Google not to index your page, just visit your Profile Settings page.
