When you share and communicate using our Services, you choose the audience who can see what you share.

Public information is available to anyone on or off our Services and can be seen or accessed through online search engines, APIs, and offline media. In some cases, people you share and communicate with may download or re-share this content with others on and off our Services. When you comment on another person’s post or like their content on Workalize, that person decides the audience who can see your interaction or comment or like or bid or price or quotation. If their audience is public, your interaction will also be public.
