What information do we collect?

Personal Information you provide to us

Personal information is information about an identifiable individual.  We collect personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us through our Platform or through other means.  For example, we may collect personal information such as your name, address, email address and telephone number when you create an account, make a purchase, enter a contest or promotion, communicate with us, submit a review, register to receive a newsletter, take a survey or otherwise submit personal information to us with your communication.
When you make a payment through the Platform, we and/or our third-party service provider also collect billing-related information such your name, address, email address and credit card details.  You may voluntarily store your billing-related information with us and/or our third-party service provider.

Collection through Cookies and other Technological Means

We may use “cookies” and other technologies for authentication, analytics, performance, functional and marketing purposes. We may also use third-party service providers, such as Google Analytics, which use cookies or other technologies to record information about you or your activity. A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on the computer hard drive or memory containing information about the user. You may modify your browser’s settings so that your browser stops accepting cookies or prompts you before accepting a cookie. If you do not accept cookies, you may still use the Platform, but certain areas or features may not function properly.
We may collect personal information when you use with the Platform.  For example, when you make a purchase through the Platform, we collect information about the transaction, including information related to the product, order and payment.
We may also collect your precise or approximate location information from your mobile device if you have enabled this feature.  We collect this information when the App is running in the foreground (the App is open and, on your screen,) or background (App is open, but not on your screen) of the mobile device.
The information we collect using cookies and other technologies may also include your IP address, browser type, device and system information, unique device identifier, device motion data, mobile network data, the web page you visited before accessing the Platform, advertising identifiers, date and time stamps, crash reports, system activity and other similar information and interactions with the Platform.

Interest-Based Advertising / Remarketing

We or our third-party advertising providers may use cookies and small pixel files (small images) to keep track of your browser so that you will be recognized when you visit other websites where our third-party advertising providers may show you advertisements from us based on your visit to our Platform. Some of these advertisements may be customized to particular products that you viewed, or they may be based on inferences about products and services that you might be interested in. This is called "interest-based advertising".
You can opt out of these interest-based advertising campaigns by turning off cookies in your browser, as described above. If you opt-out of interest-based advertising, you may still see advertisements from us on other websites. However, they will not be customized based on your browsing history on our Platform.
