This includes basic product functions like allowing our metered paywall to work and key features like personalizing what posts you see based on what we think you’ll like. So, to give you the best possible experience in using M G I Taverns Ltd., we collect information from your interactions with our Services. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using M G I Taverns Ltd., such as what pages you view (including how much of a given page and for how long) and your use of product features (like Save to M G I Taverns Ltd., highlights, follows, and applause).

We may transfer your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonymization; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.
If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others or cause illegal conduct. We will object to legal requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.
Search engines may index your M G I Taverns Ltd. user profile page, public interactions (such as claps or highlights), and post pages, such that people may find these pages when searching against your name on services like Google, DuckDuckGo, or Bing.

Some of the content that you see displayed on M G I Taverns Ltd. is not hosted by M G I Taverns Ltd.. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in a M G I Taverns Ltd. page, so that it appears to be part of that page. For example: YouTube or Vimeo videos, Imgur or Giphy gifs, SoundCloud audio files, Twitter tweets, GitHub code snippets, or Scribd documents that appear within a M G I Taverns Ltd. post. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a M G I Taverns Ltd. post page with a YouTube video embedded in it, that video appears because of a pointer to files hosted by YouTube, and in turn YouTube receives data about your activity, such as your IP address and how much of the video you watch).
When posting on M G I Taverns Ltd., you may not embed a form that allows submission of personal information by users. You must link offsite to a page that allows such submissions by users, and that page’s appearance must be distinct enough from M G I Taverns Ltd. to ensure it does not cause confusion among users over to whom they are submitting personal information. Failure to do so may lead M G I Taverns Ltd. to disable the post or take other action to limit or disable your account.
