"That's all standard cover-your-ass stuff. They're giving you a heads up that information *may* be shared with affiliates in the future. Content may be used on other parts of the internet? That's common sense. And, last but not least, backups for a service like this would be automated and ongoing, so even if you delete your account, there's probably a timestamped backup of the site with your information still on it. I appreciate that they've written it in plain language rather than legalese. It's not like they're doing a bait-and-switch here. They're being up-front about how the tech works." - Andy McIlwain
