Please note that certain information which you have defined as private on your third party social network accounts may become public to other JoyRyde Users through the Services if you have defined such information to be public on the Services. For example, if you designate your social network username as "private" in your social network account (to the extent possible under said settings), but have elected to set your JoyRyde account settings as public, then the username will become public on the JoyRyde service.
