Information we receive from others

In some cases, other parties provide us with information about you or allow us to collect information about you.

2. You decide to use the social function of the 3DGROUND service.
3. You access 3DGROUND services through another party, such as a mobile device operator.
In some cases, we cannot control the amount or type of information that other parties, such as social media, provide us with.

While we have no control over your privacy settings on those websites or how other parties protect your privacy, once we receive information about you through these websites, we will process it in accordance with this policy.

We may also receive information about you from organizations that sell our products. These parties may provide us with your account or registration information, but do not provide us with your billing information.
