When you create a The Plug account, we store the username, phone_number, password, and e-mail address you registered with the account. We also encourage our users to provide us with additional information such as a first and last name, a profile picture, a short description, a location. This optional information allows us to better respond to your requests, and makes it easier for other users of our Service to connect with you on The Plug. Any profile information that you provide us with may be updated or modified at any time.
If you choose to authenticate using a 3rd party supported service such as Facebook or Twitter, we will request access to public information from the connected account to help complete your The Plug profile.
We may use the contact information you provide us with to help connect you with other The Plug users.
Mango includes functionality to locate other people you might already know in our network. You can decide to use this feature by providing us with information from your phone’s contact list, by searching for names or other keywords, or by connecting your The Plug account with other 3rd party services such as Facebook or Twitter. While connected to these services, you will be able to post your The Plug content to them as well. You may disconnect your The Plug account from the 3rd party services at any time.
We recommend that users provide location information in their profiles, in order to better respond to their requests, and to allow other users of our Service to connect with them easier on The Plug.
