Users are advised to carefully and thoroughly consider whether or not to make available any information.
Participating in any Operator’s activities as a result, directly or indirectly, from using PAWS, is entirely at your own risk. PAWS is not a party to any agreement entered into between the users in any circumstances. The user has the sole and ultimate responsibility regarding compliance with all laws, regulations or any other duty.

Please note that all of your account information and some other information will be visible to Operators. Note that your account will be included along with any information you submit. It will therefore be visible to Operators.
Integration with other third-party services
PAWS may offer you the option to link PAWS to third party services that may be useful to you (like, Spotify). Where PAWS detects an integration may be available (either because a third party service attempts to link to PAWS, or PAWS detects an installed service on the device which has an integration option, or you request a particular integration), PAWS will ask for confirmation to connect the accounts. If you choose to connect the accounts, PAWS will ask for your permission to share data with the third party service. You should only agree to connect accounts if you are comfortable with the third party service receiving the data set out at the time of connecting the accounts and PAWS is not responsible for the third party service’s use of data. You can disconnect PAWS and the third party service at any time and PAWS will cease sharing data with that service from the point of disconnection onwards

How PAWS retains data we collect
Some data can be deleted whenever the Operator likes, some data is deleted automatically, and some data we retain for longer periods of time when necessary. This section describes why we hold onto different types of data for different periods of time.
How does PAWS use aggregated information?
PAWS may use anonymous, statistical or aggregated information (including anonymous location information), in a form that does not enable the identification of a specific user, to properly operate the Services, to improve the quality of the Services, to enhance your experience, to create new services and features, including customized services, to change or cancel existing content or service, and for further internal, commercial and statistical purposes (including advertising).
PAWS may also use anonymous, statistical or aggregated information collected on the Services, in a form that does not enable the identification of a specific user, by posting, disseminating, transmitting or otherwise communicating or making available such information to users of the Services, to the Services’ providers, partners and any other third party. For example, metadata information that we receive from your mobile device to determine how often the average application is used.
Some of the cookies may expire when the session ends and you exit your browser. Other cookies are saved on your computer’s hard drive. If you wish to block the Website’s cookies, then please use the help button in your browser and follow the necessary instructions. However, bear in mind that disabling cookies may complicate or even prevent your use of the Website, or certain features thereof.
PAWS considers information security to be a top priority. PAWS services are built with strong security features that continuously protect your information. PAWS and its Third Party Services providers implement systems, applications and procedures to secure your personal information, to minimize the risk of theft, damage, loss of information, or unauthorized access or use of information. For example, we review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to prevent unauthorized access to our systems. In addition, we restrict access to personal information to PAWS employees, contractors, and agents who need that information in order to process it. Anyone with this access is subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
The insights we gain from maintaining our services help us detect and automatically block security threats from ever reaching you.
However, these measures are unable to provide absolute assurance. Therefore, although PAWS takes great efforts to protect your personal information, PAWS cannot guarantee and you cannot reasonably expect that PAWS’s databases will be immune from any wrongdoings, malfunctions, unlawful interceptions or access, or other kinds of abuse and misuse.
