Plutro allows viewing and sharing information including through posts, likes, follows and comments, in the following situations:
5.2. Others’ services. You may link our account with others’ services so that they can look up your contacts’ profiles, post your shares on such platforms, or start conversations with your connections on such platforms. Excerpts from your profile will also appear on the services of others. Subject to your settings, other services may look-up your profile. When you opt to link your account with other services, personal data will become available to them. Subject to your settings, excerpts from your profile and/or content will appear on the services of others, e.g. search engine results that show a user “mini” Plutro profile / content. “Old” profile information remains on these services until they update their data cache with changes you made to your profile.

Information that you have shared with others, e.g. through message and comments, will remain visible after you closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile or mailbox, and we do not control data that other Members copied out of our Services. Your profile may continue to be displayed in others’ Services until they refresh their cache.
