information has been previously shared with others, or copied or stored by other Users or to
the extent such information has been shared with search engines. We cannot control this,
nor do we accept any liability for this. If you have given third party applications or websites
access to your personal information they may retain such information to the extent

that a child, minor or anyone under the age of 18 has registered with us and provided us with
personal information, we will take steps to terminate that person's registration and delete
their Registration Information from Tribe. If we do delete a profile because you violated our
no children rules, we may retain your email and IP address to ensure that you do not try to

Here at Tribe we pride ourselves on taking commercially reasonable security measures to
help protect your information against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, or disclosure. We
use reasonable security measures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal
information such as secured servers using firewalls.
Unfortunately, no website or Internet transmission is ever completely 100% secure and even
we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss or other breaches will
never occur, but here are some handy tips to help keep your data secure:
1. Please make sure you log out of your Account after use as you never know who may stumble
onto your Account

If you ever think someone has had access to your social media password, please report it to
the relevant social media platform and change your password immediately. We cannot
guarantee the security of your personal data while it is being transmitted to our site and any
transmission is at your own risk.

provided to you by third parties to unsubscribe from their messages. If you have opted-out as
described above, and thereafter you chose to use a service or promotion that requires us to

collection. At this time, we do not track our Users' personal information over time and across
third-party online services. This law also requires operators of online services to disclose
whether third parties may collect personal information about their users' online activities
over time and across different online services when the users use the operator's service. We
do not knowingly permit third parties to collect personal information about an individual
User's online activities over time and across different online services when using the App.
