Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a GETCLOSE account, you provide some personal information, such as your Cell #, nickname, password, email address, etc. Some of this information, for example, your name and nickname, is only listed privately on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results – unless you specifically designate Public. For Public GetClose, members, and posts; Some Services, such as search, public user profiles and viewing lists, do not require registration.
Additional Information: You may provide us with additional information that we will keep Private (unless you specifically designate your profile, GetClose, etc to be Public), such as a short biography, your location, or a picture. You may customize your account with additional information such as DOB or your address book so that we can help make GETCLOSE a better service.

**GETCLOSE posts, Following, Lists and other Public Information: **Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information with your friends/businesses in a private manner. However, we do allow users to designate GetClose as Public (coming soon). In a Public GETCLOSE scenario:
Most of the information you provide to us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the messages you post and the metadata provided with Posts, such as when you GETCLOSEd, but also the lists you create, the members of the GETCLOSE, the GETCLOSE posts you mark as favorites or Repost and many other bits of information. Our default is always to make the information you provide private but we generally give you settings to make the information more public if you want. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For example, your public GETCLOSE posts are searchable by many search engines and are immediately delivered via SMS and our APIs to a wide range of users and services. You should be careful about all information that will be made public by GETCLOSE, not just your posts within a designated public GETCLOSE.
TipTip: What you say on GETCLOSE will NOT be viewed publicly unless you specify a GETCLOSE to be Public.
Location Information: You may choose to note your location in your GETCLOSE posts and in your GETCLOSE profile. You can control your location information in your account settings.
