We collect Personal Information in order to establish and authenticate user accounts, to facilitate certain features and transactions requested by you, provide you with Services, to identify users while accessing or using the Platform, to enable interactions between users and our partners and clients, and to send information and notices to our users regarding the Platform.
We collect Personal Information when:

Your friends may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove their email information from our databases.
- Location Based Information. Certain features of the Platform may include so-called “location-based services” that, for example, ask you to “check in” at a location or post or otherwise broadcast your location to other users of the Platform. If you choose to enable these location-based services and check in or otherwise identify your location to the Site and/or Services, then the location you provide may be collected and stored by us. Please be aware that if you have enabled location-based services and are posting content that includes location information, your location may be part of the information about you that is publicized to other users who may review that information.
We may use the Personal Information you provide to communicate with you about your account or transactions with us, respond to requests, answer questions, resolve concerns, facilitate transactions, notify you of new products, releases, events, changes to our policies, and to solicit your feedback and input.

WHAT NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND HOW IS IT USED?
We collect anonymous information through your use of the Platform. Anonymous information means information that does not directly or indirectly identify and individual user. We additionally may aggregate information collected from users (which may be Personal Information and/or anonymous information) about groups or categories of users, which does not identify and cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual user.
- Automatic Collection. Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses and may also identify your computer and connection information, as well as information about your browser type and browser settings and (where possible) your geographic location. No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Platform may also use clear gifs (also known as web beacons) and other methods to gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the Platform. We may also use clear gifs in email messages that we send to our users so that we can track which recipients have opened those messages.
- Cookies. From time to time, we may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to and/or use of the Platform. We do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies, nor do we employ any data capture mechanisms on the Platform other than cookies. Cookies help us learn which areas of the Platform are useful and which areas need improvement. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience with the Platform may be diminished and some features may not work as they were intended.
- Links. We may keep track of how you interact with links across the Platform, including our email notifications, third-party services and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Platform, to provide more relevant advertising, track actions taken, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.

We may have arrangements with third parties who provide or track usage, or who provide other services necessary for the operation of the Platform, such as Google Analyics, Facebook Pixel and Squarespace Analytics.
