GetExpand "tags" the contacts in your address book as your friends, but at anytime, you can review the list of your tagged friends and choose to untag any of them at any time. Untagging your contacts will hide your ratings from them and will also result in their ratings not being shown to you.

If a contact in your address book has rated an establishment/s on GetExpand, the ratings associated with the contact will be displayed as part of your friends' ratings. If a contact in your address book has used GetExpand's service across any platform and has not rated an establishment, although their name is displayed in your friends list, no ratings will be shown associated with the said contact.
If any of your tagged friends registers with our Service across GetExpand's platforms, ratings of such a friend will be visible to you only if
- Your mobile number is present in his contacts list
- You have not been untagged by your friend
GetExpand will also provide users with a privacy settings option that will allow the user to choose appropriate privacy levels. By default, the user's contact list will be used to identify friends in the network. A user may choose to allow anyone to tag him/her as a friend and may also choose to allow nobody to tag him/her as a friend.
