Information We Collect.
We collect two types of information from you when you use the Services, or otherwise interact with Us: (1) “personally identifiable information” (as defined below) and (2) “non-personally identifiable information” (as defined below). Certain information is required to provide the Services. If you do not provide certain information, or request we delete certain information, you may no longer be able to use the Services.
Personal Identifiable Information (“PII”)
Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, your first and last name, date of birth, demographic information such as gender, email address, and telephone number. You may also create a username or otherwise provide/create login credentials to utilize the Services, which will be associated with you. We may also associate information about your account with you, including but not limited to your preferences, usage history, and related information.[AG3]
Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“NPII”)
Non-Personally Identifiable Information can be technical information or aggregated, non-identifiable, or anonymized information. NPII does not identify you personally. If you provide Us with NPII, We may use it for the purposes described in this statement or any other legal purpose.
Automatic collection of NPII
When you download or use the Services, We automatically collect certain information by automated or passive means using a variety of technologies described below. We use these technologies across Our Services to enhance your user experience. These technologies may allow Us to personalize your online experience, recognize you as a previous visitor, save your user preferences, and/or maintain your login and password information on secure portions of Our Services. We also use these technologies to analyze how users use Our Services and to monitor the performance of the Services, including the App. To be clear, We do not combine the general information collected through these technologies with other personal information such as to render you identifiable[AG4] .
When you utilize the Services, We automatically collect certain information about your device, browsing actions, and patters, including but not limited to:
- information about your device and internet collection, including your web browser, IP address, operating system, platform type (such as Apple iOS or Android), time zone, geolocation, and cookies installed on your device;
- details of your visits and use of Our Services, including what websites or search terms referred you to the Services; the number of clicks on a feature; the amount of time spent on the Services; and information about how you interact with the Services. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
- Cookies. A cookie is a small data file placed on your device or computer by Us or Our third-party vendor service provider(s) and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
- Log files. Log files track actions occurring on the Services and collect data, including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

- Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential to the functionality of the Services in order to facilitate your use of the Services and their features, and in order to enable you to move around the Services smoothly. Without these cookies, We may not be able to provide certain services or features, and the Services will not properly function. Unfortunately, these cookies cannot be disabled or modified, which is why We refer to these as “Necessary.”
- Analytics and Reporting Cookies: We and Our third-party vendor service providers may use analytics cookies, which are sometimes called reporting cookies, to collect information about your use of the Services in order to enable Us to improve the way it works and prepare statistical analysis of such data. The information gathered via analytics cookies allows Us to see the overall patterns of usage of the Services, helps Us record any difficulties you have with the Services, and shows Us whether Our advertising is effective or not.
- Advertising cookies: We use advertising cookies to tailor marketing to you and your interests and provide you with a more personalized service in the future. These cookies remember that you visited Our Website, and We may share this information with third-parties, such as advertisers. Although these cookies can track your device’s visits to Our Website and other sites, they typically cannot personally identify you. Without these cookies, the advertisements that you see may be less relevant and interesting to you. For example, We use Facebook Custom Audiences to deliver targeted advertisements. If you have questions, you may obtain more information about Facebook’s policy privacy, which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. We also use Google and Bing to deliver targeted advertisements. You may obtain more information about these sites’ privacy policies at:

- Social and Content cookies: Many social media plugins use social and content cookies (for example, the Facebook ‘like’ button), and other tools meant to provide or improve the content on a website. We integrate these modules into Our Services to improve the experience of browsing and interacting with Our Services. Please note that some of these third party services place cookies that are also used for things like behavioral advertising, analytics, and/or market research.
If you have an account and you log in to this Site, We will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, We will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.[AG6]

Your browser or device can be set to notify you of the cookies that are deposited and ask you to accept them or not. You can accept or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis or reject them consistently once and for all. We remind you that the refusal of cookies is likely to modify your conditions of access to Our Services. In order to manage the cookies as close as possible to your expectations, We invite you to set your settings taking into account the purpose of the cookies as mentioned above.

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows Us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom We collected personal information or an authorized representative; and
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows Us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if We cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If We require more time (up to 90 days), We will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, We will deliver Our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, We will deliver Our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures We provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response We provide will also explain the reasons We cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, We will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If We determine that the request warrants a fee, We will tell you why We made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
