Any personal information you provide to us, including and similar to your names, username, password and email address will not be released, sold or rented to any entities or individuals outside of XBL Gamerhub.

Additional Information

You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, your website or a picture.

Your privacy settings control whether others can find you through the videos or photos you post, by searching group lists or through accessing mutual friend lists. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to you.

If you connect your XBL Gamerhub account to another service in order to cross-post between XBL Gamerhub and that service, the other service might send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorise. This information enables cross-posting, helps us improve the Services, and is deleted from XBL Gamerhub within a few weeks of your disconnecting your XBL Gamerhub account from the other services.
