Feautor Privacy Notice
Non-Account Activity. You can search for and view content on Feautor without having a Feautor Account.
Account-Related Activity. Certain other activities on Feautor—like uploading content, posting comments, or reviewing content —require you to have a Feautor Account. We ask for some personal information when you create a Feautor Account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access.
Usage Information. We may record information about your usage, such as when you use Feautor, the channels, groups, and favorites you subscribe to, the contacts you communicate with, and the frequency and size of data transfers, as well as information you display or click on in Feautor (including UI elements, settings, and other information). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your account.
Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in messages and reviews, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.
Uses If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the Feautor Site, we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Feautor Site, as well as provide special personalized features to you.
Your account name (not your email address) is displayed to other Users when you upload content or send messages through the Feautor Site and other Users can contact you through messages and comments. Any content that you submit to the Feautor Site may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public.
We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Feautor Site changes).
We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Feautor Site and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing User preferences and trends.
Your Choices You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Feautor Site, in which case you can still view content and explore the Feautor Site, but Feautor may not be able to provide certain services to you.
You may update or correct your personal profile information and email preferences at any time by visiting your account profile page.

Huh? We would use clear GIFs as “web beacons”? That sounds a bit sleezy. Why wouldn’t we make the GIF visible and overt if it were in an email?
Does the “content uploaded” need to refer to Creative Commons terms?

Exactly!! I have the sames dudes!
Also we need to clarify more the part: “We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Feautor Site changes or for customer service purposes).”
We’ll have in the future a customer service?!!
