People can find each other's profile on Cooper using our search functionality. They can see your profile and the information on it, but not your email address. They also can't contact you unless you are connections on Cooper.
If someone adds you as a contact, with the email address you signed up with, we also show them your public Cooper profile in their contacts. They can't create their own profile for you, but they can add their own tags if they want.
When your contacts update their profiles and tags, you have an up to date network. Remember to update your own profile for them as well!
