As related to social media specifically, during the course of our interactions with you, we might also request that you post on social media (including, but not limited to, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) with certain hashtags.

While you retain ownership of the image, using the hashtags we request gives us permission to display and re-display the image. The image may contain information about you, and we may collect and use that information for marketing and research purposes. If you do not want your image posted on our Services, please do not use our requested hashtags.
