We collect two basic types of information with our service, namely personal information and aggregate information. As used herein, the term “personal information” means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name and e-mail address), and demographic and other information about an individual when directly linked to personally identifiable information. A user name may be personal information if it includes personally identifying information such as a first and last name. Our definition of personal information does not include “aggregate” information (see below).
Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of services or users from which individual user identities have been removed. In other words, information on how you use our service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends in our users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our service. This policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information, and we may share aggregate information about our users with third parties for various purposes, including to help us better understand and improve our service, and for advertising and marketing purposes.
Automatically Collected Information
As mentioned above, we automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, when you use the website, our systems may automatically collect your IP address and the type of operating system or browser you use. We may also collect information pertaining to your account activity, and standard access information, such as the time and date of your accessing the service and your usage of the service. We use such information for purposes such as compiling aggregated statistics about service usage, developing new features, and improving our services.
Information about Children
Our service is not intended to be used by children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 except in compliance with applicable law.
