1. Information Collected From You on the Service
Information You Submit to Us
You may provide a variety of information to us through the Service:
Automatically Collected Information
Cookies are files that websites and online services create and access on your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings on your device. Our Service may use HTTP cookies, HTML5 cookies, Flash cookies and other types of local storage (such as browser-based or plugin-based local storage). Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict or disable certain cookies. You also may be able to delete your Flash cookies or adjust your Flash cookie settings by visiting the Adobe Flash Website Storage Settings Manager by following Adobe’s instructions here (instructions vary depending on your operating system and version of Flash). Please note, however, that without cookies or local storage you may not be able to use all of the features of our Service.
If we provide a mobile app, we or third parties may collect information similar to the data mentioned above. In that case, we also may collect unique device identifiers (such as advertising IDs) and other mobile-specific types of information. For example, depending on your device and/or browser settings, we may collect your device’s geolocation.
2. Use of Your Information
We may use the information we collect to provide, improve, maintain and evaluate the Service and to help us develop other services. We also may (but do not necessarily) use some or all of the information we collect for a range of other purposes. These uses may include:
3. Sharing Your Information
We may share your information to provide the Service and for other purposes. For example, we may share your information:
4. Analytics, Advertising and Do-Not-Track
Online Analytics Providers
To help us better understand your use of the Service, we may use third-party analytics on our Service, such as Google Analytics or Flurry. These third parties use the sorts of technologies described in the “Automatically Collected Information” section above. The information collected by this technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. (We also may use these third parties’ technology as described in the following section.) To restrict Google Analytics’ handling of your information, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on. You also may visit Flurry’s opt-out page to restrict Flurry’s handling of your information.
Advertising Technology Providers
As with many websites and web-based services, data about your activities on our Service may be collected by us or by advertising technology providers for use in delivering advertising (both online and offline) tailored to your individual characteristics, activities, interests and other factors. These ad services may track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of the automated technologies described above, and they may use this information, and other information they receive from us or other sources, to deliver advertisements to you. We and third-party vendors may use first-party cookies and third-party cookies together, and other automated technologies, and in some cases additional information, (i) to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on past visits to our Service or other factors and (ii) to report how ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to our Service or other factors.
You may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out page to opt out of receiving tailored advertising from many companies involved in that type of advertising – for instance, ads based on your Internet browsing activities. The opt-outs apply only to the browser in which you set them. For example, if you set the opt-out while using Firefox, but then use Chrome, the opt-out will not be active in Chrome. To opt out in Chrome, you will need to repeat the opt-out process.
Do Not Track Disclosure
We do not change our own collection of information in response to web browser “do-not-track” signals or other third-party tools that let consumers exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information. Also, we generally do not require third parties collecting information on our websites and online services to respond to these technologies.
5. Your Choices, and How to Remove Your Content and Information
We may offer self-serve options for updating your information and indicating your Service preferences. To learn about these, please visit Menu >> Manage Account >> My Profile.
Any removal and deletion options we may offer may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you posted on the Service. For example, it generally will not remove content or information that has been stored, shared or re-posted by other users and other third parties.
6. Deleting Your Account
To delete your account, please send an email to email@example.com from the email address we have on file for your account. We reserve the right to permanently erase your account from our systems immediately or at any time after we receive the request or to preserve a record of the account for some time for legitimate business purposes and as required by law. (We also reserve the right to delete accounts on our own initiative.) In some cases, the deletion process may take some time. Account deletion may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you posted on or submitted to the Service.
We understand the importance of the security of the information we collect, but we cannot promise that our security measures will eliminate security risks or avoid security breaches. When you provide information to us, you do so at your own risk. Please help to do your part by taking steps such as (1) using a strong, unique password for our Service (or for the social network that you use to login to our Service) that never has and never will be used anywhere else, (2) protecting the confidentiality of your password, and periodically changing it, (3) accessing our Service only from devices that have an up-to-date operating system, and (4) notifying us of any suspected unauthorized activity or any breach of the confidentiality of your login credentials. Taking these steps will not guarantee security but may help lower the risk or impact of certain security threats. Please also see the important security warning in the next section.

If you access the Service from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from United States laws, you understand that through your continued use of the Service you may be transferring your personal information to the United States and if so, you consent to that transfer.
