What information do we collect about you and how do we use it?
Types of Information We Collect
Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You do not need to submit personal information to access certain areas of the Service, but if you choose not to disclose certain personal information to us, you will not be able to access certain aspects of the Company Features.
We collect personal information when you create an account through the Company Features; participate in registration forms, feedback forms, order forms or surveys; or receive customer or technical support.
To create an account for the Company Features, we require you to provide certain information to create your profile, including your username, gender and email address. Providing additional information beyond what is required to create an account, such as providing your age, gender, ethnicity, marital status and birthdate, is entirely optional, but enables you to gain more from the Company Features. We may also collect financial qualification and billing information, such as billing name and address and credit/debit card information.
Third Party Privacy Policies
Through the Company Features, you may be able to link to technology, software and services owned and controlled by third parties (the “Third Party Features”). For example, we offer features of the Service that allow you to link your account to third party services, such as Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. If you sign up for one of these services, we may also collect personally identifiable information from these Internet sources and database services.
By submitting personal information through the Service, you authorize the Company to share this personal information for the purposes identified herein and on the Service, such as responding to user inquiries and processing transactions.
How We Use Your Personal Information
The personal information you provide to us will allow us to provide the Company Features to you, including alerting you of new products or services, features, or enhancements; handling your customer service questions or issues; providing for order processing; requesting feedback; distributing newsletters; and notifying you of promotions, contests, surveys updates, or special offers that we think may interest you. We may also use your email address, postal address, phone number, SMS (for which your service provider may charge you) or instant messaging as part of the Company Features in sending you messages about the Company Features and other general announcements. Our automated systems analyze your content to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results and tailored advertising.
We keep track of your interactions with us, including but not limited to your activity within the Company Features. We may also use your personal information to contact you when necessary.
We may use your personal information with non-personal information that we have collected in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Company Features. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information. You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect in providing the Company Features (the “Analytical Data”). We are expressly authorized to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer from us any part of the Analytical Data that personally identifies any Company Features users.
When you use the Company Features, we may use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location. We may share your current location with other users of the Company Features or our partners (including to third parties who are providing Third Party Features). If you do not want us to collect information regarding your location, you should turn off the location services for the mobile application located in your mobile phone settings and/or within the Company Features.
Do Not Track
In compliance with California legislation, AB370, effective January 1, 2014, the Company’s practices in responding to “do not track signals and collecting user information over time and across a network of websites when you visit the Service are described below. We ignore the request of “do not track” signals sent by your browser when you visit the Service.
The Company Features use analytic software to help us learn about who visits the Service and what pages are being viewed.
Our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Service. This information includes your Internet Protocol address, your browser type and version, the search engine you used to find the Company Features, if any, which Company Features you use and from where, and when and how long you use them. We use this information to monitor and analyze how users use the Company Features, to provide customer service and to maintain and improve the Company Features.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. We take children’s privacy seriously, and encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times.
Will we share your personal information with third parties?
Sharing of Information
We use your personal information to provide the Company Features to you, respond to your requests and send communications to you about new services, features or enhancements to the Company Features, to notify you of promotions, updates, or special offers (which may be offered by the Company or one of its business partners) that may be of interest to you and to handle your customer service questions or issues. We may share your personal information with carefully selected vendors and business partners, including companies that perform marketing services and other business operations for us, under strict terms described herein. In addition, we will share the personal information we collect from you under the following circumstances:
- Asset transfers. If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of the Company’s assets, user information, including personal information collected from you through your use of the Company Features, could be included in the transferred assets. Should such an event occur, we will use reasonable means to notify you through email and/or a prominent notice on the Service.
- Advertisers. We may provide information provided in your profile to third party advertisers. This information may be used by such third party advertisers to provide you with advertisements, including tailored advertising.
