What This Policy Covers
Our website (including , );
Information We Collect
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide service / information through the Website, to communicate with you, or to make our Website better. We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Website, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Information You Provide to Us
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
- Basic Account Information: We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, we require individuals who sign up for an account to provide a username and/or email address. You may provide us with more information–like your name–to create an account.
- Transaction and Billing Information: If you buy something from us you will provide additional personal and payment information that is required to process the transaction and your payment, such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.
- Communications With Us: You may also provide us information when you respond to surveys, communicate with us about a support question, or post a question.
Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically:
- Log Information: Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Website–for example, when you create or make changes to your account – so we can make our Website better.
- Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information for example, calculate how many people visit our Website from certain geographic regions.
Information We Collect from Other Sources
We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into our Website account through another service (like Google,), we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

Legal Bases for Collecting and Using Information
How We Share Information
We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:
- Legal Requests: We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request.
