This Policy describes the information we gather from you on the Service, how we use and disclose such information, and the steps we take to protect such information.

 

  • Information We Collect

 

We collect Personal Information about you from different sources listed below. In this Policy, “Personal Information” means any information related to an identified or identifiable individual, and does not include data whereby personally identifiable information has been removed (such as anonymous data).

  • Identifiers and usage. When you use the Service we and third parties may automatically collect your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser information, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the Service, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Service, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Service, advertising identifiers and potentially non-personal information about your device including model, version and operating system. We may also collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message.
  • Location information. When you use the Service, we may obtain information about your approximate physical location, for example your IP address indicates the general geographic region from which you are connected to the internet.

We also collect, create, use, and share deidentified and/or aggregated data (such as statistical or demographic data) derived from your Personal Information or use of the Service (“Aggregated Data”) for our business purposes. Aggregated Data is not Personal Information as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may deidentify and/or aggregate data about your use of our Service to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your Personal Information so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we will treat the combined data as Personal Information and process it in accordance with this Policy.
