Information Collected

We collect two types of information about persons who use the Service: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.

“Personal Information” or “PII” is information that may personally identify you, such as your name, address, email address or phone number, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing. Anything you publicly post or that is available publicly will not be considered Personal Information and will be outside the restrictions of this policy.

“Non-Personal Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. We may create Non-Personal Information from (i) automatically gathered information or (ii) Personal Information by excluding information (such as name) that may make the information personally identifiable to you.

Personal Information Collected

We collect certain Personal Information about you, which may be supplied when you sign-up for the Service, when you complete a survey, when you use the Service, when you request services, or otherwise when you submit such information. The information that may be collected includes:

  • Phone number;
  • Credit card information;
  • Bank account information;
  • Social security number;

You may provide us information when you interact with us through email or otherwise. We may retain such information in order to provide you with services, and you agree that we may share this information as needed with other users in order to resolve any issues that may arise between you and another user of the Service.

If non-personal information is paired to any of your Personal Information, we will treat the non-personal information as if it was Personal Information too.

We may use anonymous information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Service, and to enable us to personalize your internet experience.
