The terms “we,” “us,” and “ADP” refer to American Discovery Publishing® LLC. The terms “you” and “your” refer to you, as a user of any of the ADP Sites. The term “personal information” means information that you provide to us which personally identifies you to be contacted or identified, such as your name, phone number, email address, and any other data that is tied to such information.
HOW INFORMATION IS USED
ADP cares about privacy and we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the collection of personal information is limited to that which is necessary to fulfill the purposes identified below
Account Information: If you create an account to take advantage of the full range of services offered on the ADP Sites, we may ask for and keep note of personal information such as your name and email address. We might email you updates and notices about your content.
Information You Submit: We store and may publicly display your submissions in order to provide the services that we offer. When we display your submissions, we may do so together with your first name and last initial. The term “submissions” refers to the information that you submit or post to the ADP Sites for public display, such as reviews, photos, videos, and the information that you display as part of your account profile.
We are not in the business of selling information about Users to third parties. We may distribute your submissions to third parties, as permitted pursuant to our Terms of Service. The third parties may in turn publicly display or publish your submissions in connection with their own websites and media platforms.
Business Transfers: As we continue to grow our company, we might sell or buy subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any per-existing Privacy Notice. Also, in the unlikely event that ADP, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
We may share your personal information with third parties to provide you with services that we offer through the ADP Sites, conduct quality assurance testing, facilitate creation of accounts, provide technical and customer support, or provide specific services. These third parties are required to maintain the privacy of your information except to provide the services requested by you.
We may disclose information in the aggregate to third parties relating to user behavior in connection with actual or prospective business relationship with those third parties, such as advertisers and content distributors. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, advertising banners.
You may choose to provide us with another person’s e-mail address so that person may be invited to create an account on this website and become your friend. We use this information to contact and, if necessary, remind that person about the invitation. By providing us with another person’s e-mail address, you represent to us that you have obtained the consent of the person concerned as regards such disclosure to us of their personal information. All invitees are provided with the option not to receive further invitations. We may disclose such information if required to do so in order to comply with legal process, as described above.
The ADP Sites may contain links to third party websites to which we have no affiliation. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your personal information with those third parties, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies on all such third party websites.
To the extent you include personal information in your submissions (such as a video of yourself), third parties may be able to identify you, associate you with your user account, and contact you. Please do not include information in your submissions that you expect to keep private.
You hereby acknowledge that ADP is not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.

We may charge you a fee to access your personal information to cover our costs; however, we will advise you of any fee in advance, which will be no more than any maximum fee prescribed by law.
