Checking in and sharing your location requires an internet connection. This may

involve the transmission of large amounts of data and related data traffic costs.

The social networking services are third-party services and not provided by Nokia.

Check the privacy settings of the social networking service you are using as you may

share information with a large group of people. The terms of use of the social

networking service apply to sharing information on that service. Familiarise yourself

with the terms of use and the privacy practices of that service.

Important: Before sharing your location, always consider carefully with whom you

are sharing. Check the privacy settings of the social networking service you are using,

as you might share your location with a large group of people.
