Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) is intended to inform you about how Harvard Media collects, uses, and shares information about you in connection with your use of our Socast SRM Contest Application (“Application”), on the Harvard Media Facebook Page (“Facebook Page”), which includes any applications within the Facebook Page, and on the Harvard Media website (“Website”).

Collected Information

When you grant “Access” to the Harvard Media Facebook Page or register on our Website, Harvard Media may collect and have access to the information that you have chosen to put in your profile (e.g., name, profile picture, gender, current city, networks, friend lists, pages you “Like”, etc.) or information you otherwise provide directly to Harvard Media. Additionally, we may collect and access your profile identification number, a unique number associated with each user profile on the site.

Use of Information

Harvard Media may use and, in some cases, store the information collected for purposes such as administering and communicating with you regarding the programs available through the Facebook Page or Website. For instance, your profile identification number is used to identify you when you visit the Facebook Page, enabling us to provide you access to the Application functionality.

Sharing of Information

Harvard Media may share the photo and name found in your profile, as well as your Facebook Page activity, in accordance with your privacy settings on the Facebook platform each time you engage with the Facebook Page Application (e.g., commenting, “liking” the Facebook Page, etc.). Information collected may be shared with our service providers to assist in administering related promotions and programs, or as otherwise required by law, such as in response to legal process and to protect against fraud.


Harvard Media uses “cookies” (small pieces of data stored for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) to enhance the functionality of the Facebook Page Application, to improve our related promotions and programs, and to help protect both you and Harvard Media.
