Engage™ Linked Service - Instagram™

Last Updated: May 05, 2015 10:00AM PDT
Engage™ service users can link their Instagram account to their Engage™ account, so that photographs posted to the user’s Instagram account during an Engage™ sports activity (called a “trip”) will be displayed on the Engage™ service. This article explains how information is shared between the Engage™ service and Instagram.
 
 
Linking
 
If a user links their Engage™ account to their Instagram account, then the user’s Engage™ account will be given access to communicate with the Instagram account to obtain links to certain photographs, as described below.
 
Linking an Instagram account to an Engage™ account does not give the Engage™ account access to the Instagram account login information or other data from the Instagram profile.
 
 
Data Sharing
 
If a user links their Engage™ account to their Instagram account, then when the user adds a new trip to their Engage™ account the Engage™ service will automatically access the user’s Instagram account to obtain links to all photographs in the Instagram account that were taken during the Engage™ trip and then use those links to display the photographs on the Engage™ service.
 
Except for access to links for relevant photographs as described above, no other data is shared between the Engage™ service and Instagram. The Engage™ service does not post any data to Instagram.
 
Recon does not permanently download copies of any photographs from Instagram. Instagram photographs are displayed on the Engage™ service but the photographs remain hosted by Instagram and are governed by Instagram’s privacy policies and terms of service. Please refer to Instagram’s privacy policy and terms of service to understand Instagram’s privacy practices.
 
 
Security
 
Data is transmitted between the Engage™ service and Instagram using Instagram’s designated procedures, which include the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol.
 
 
De-Linking
 
A user can cancel the link between the user’s Engage™ account and the user’s Instagram account at any time using the functionality in the user’s Engage™ account settings. If the user’s Engage™ account and Instagram account are de-linked, then the Engage™ service will no longer display Instagram photographs taken when the services are not linked.
 
De-linking will not stop the Engage™ service from displaying Instagram photographs that were previously processed by the Engage™ service while the Engage™ and Instagram accounts were linked. A user can use the Engage™ account settings to manually remove from the Engage™ service links to those previously posted Instagram photographs.
 
A user can, at any time, re-establish the link between the user’s Engage™ account and the user’s Instagram account.
