Public Nature of Personal Data
Logged-in users may choose to interact publicly with the Common People Hub Services in the form of likes or dislikes on a post, following other user accounts, sharing links on connected social media accounts, or writing original posts.

When you delete your Common People Hub account, Common People Hub deletes your personal data as outlined in this document. However, to delete your payment or billing information, you will need to do so with your payment provider, as Common People Hub only has minimal secure access to those records as needed to provide the services.

Potential Consequences of Processing
By creating an account on Common People Hub, users may make certain personal data about themselves public and accessible to others on their profile and through network interactions. This may in some cases constitute special category protected data which is considered manifestly made public by the user.
Due to the public nature of information posted to Common People Hub, it may be possible for third parties to derive identifying personal data from posts, whether by reading, inference, supplemental research, or automated extraction and analysis.
Users are free to use their real name and information, or a pseudonym of their choosing, for their account. Users may also choose to use the service without posting data or engaging in network interactions. However, if you do not agree with and accept the risks of such usage, you may not use the services.
Common People Hub is hosted in the United States. By using Common People Hub Services, you authorize Common People Hub to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate. Where your data is disclosed to our processors, it is subject by contract to at least the same level of data protection as that set out in this statement.
Common People Hub retains personal data associated with your account for the lifetime of your account. If you would like to delete your personal information, you can delete your account at any time. Deleted account profile pages will yield an error 404 "file not found" page, immediately upon initiating deletion, and will become unrecoverable in our system. It may take several additional years for your personal data to be de-indexed from search engines, depending on those search engines' practices, over which Common People Hub may have limited or no control.
To delete your payment or billing information, you will need to do so with your payment provider, as Common People Hub only has minimal secure access to those records as needed to provide the services.
