(the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) collects, uses, shares, and stores, including personal information (i.e., information that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or contact information, or other data that can be reasonably used to infer this information) specifically in connection with the operation and use of Company’s websites, including, services and associated software (collectively, the “Services”). Please carefully review this Privacy Policy and Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”). Unless otherwise defined here, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as terms defined in our Terms of Service.


1. Personal Information. “Personal Information” is information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with you or your household.

2. Information Collected and Stored when Creating an Account and/or Using the Services. We receive and store any information you provide when you create an Account (as defined in the Terms of Service) and/or when you use the Services. Examples of information we collect are:

Registration Information. When you create an Account, we will collect personal information, which may include your name, date of birth, payment information (e.g., credit card, address, wallet) and contact information (e.g. email, phone). We collect this information to identify you, provide you access to certain Services, and communicate with you.

Device and Internet Information. When using the Services, we and our third-party service providers may use cookies and similar technologies to collect your browsing and search history, IP address, geolocation, and identification number of the device that you use to access the Service. We collect this information to enable and personalize your experience. If you reject cookies, you may still use our website, but your ability to use some aspects of the Service may be limited.

User Generated Content. Some of our Services may allow you to create and post or upload content, such as data, text, photographs, graphics, video, or other materials that you create or provide to us through either a public or private transmission (“User Generated Content”), which may include information about yourself. Any information, including, but not limited to Personal Information, you include in a public transmission (such as a videoconference or via streaming) may be read, collected, and used by anyone.

3. Use of the Information Collected.

In addition to the purposes for which we collect your Personal Information listed above, we may use your Personal Information for the following purposes:

Aggregate Information. We may also use information collected from you or the Services in a non-personally identifiable or aggregate form to help us make sales, marketing, and business decisions. This information is not Personal Information because it does not identify you or any particular individual or disclose your or any particular individual’s data.

We may use third-party service providers to perform some of these functions. Those service providers are restricted from sharing your Personal Information for any other purpose.

4. European Requirements Related to Information Processing. If European data protection law applies to the collection, processing and use of your information, our legal basis for processing your Personal Information is as follows:

With Your Consent. Where you have consented to data processing, your consent provides the legal basis to process your Personal Information. You have the right to withdraw consent at any time. Please note that your withdrawal of consent to collect and process your Personal Information will not affect the lawfulness of processing your Personal Information based on your consent before you withdrew your consent.

When Providing the Services. We will process your Personal Information to provide and support the services you have requested, including but not limited to services provided under our Terms of Service.

When Pursuing Legitimate Interests. We may process your Personal Information for the Company’s legitimate interests and those of third parties provided that we apply appropriate safeguards to protect your privacy. For example, we may process your Personal Information for the purpose of (i) offering and improving the Services; (ii) developing new products, services and features; (iii) understanding how you are using the Services; (iv) performing research that improves the Services for our users; (v) sending you direct marketing and other communications from the Company; (vi) detecting, preventing or otherwise addressing fraud, abuse, security or technical issues with the Services; (vii) maintaining and improving the integrity of our computing systems and protecting our users' data security; (viii) enforcing legal claims, including the investigation of potential violations of applicable Terms of Service.

When complying with Legal Obligations. We will process and use your data when we have a legal obligation to do so, for example, if we are responding to a legal process.

5. Circumstances Where the Company Shares Your Personal Information.

Under no circumstance will we share your Personal Information for any commercial or marketing purpose unrelated to the Services without your prior permission. We will not rent or sell our customer lists that include your Personal Information without your prior permission. The following are the limited situations where we may share Personal Information:

With Your Consent. We may share Personal Information when we have your consent. The Company or the third party will request your consent to these exchanges on your behalf and you can change your mind at any time. When you use third-party products and services integrated with the Services, the terms and privacy policies of such third-party products and services will govern your use of those products and services.

For External Processing. We may engage contractors, service providers, and third-party technicians (collectively, the “Processors”) to assist us with some of the data processing, storage and use described in this Privacy Policy, including to help answer your questions. Our Processors may include marketing, operations, payment processing, and technology vendors. These Processors may also assist with monitoring our servers (including third-party servers used by the Company) for technical problems. These Processors (as well as the Company’s employees) may be given access to certain Personal Information about you or your Account if necessary to provide those services. In no event will these Processors be allowed to use this data for purposes not permitted under this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Service.

As Part of Business Transitions. If the Company participates in the sale or transfer of the Company’s business and/or all or part of its assets, your Personal Information may be among the items transferred under such Business Transactions. We will require that any purchaser treat our data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

For Legal Reasons. We will share Personal Information with third parties if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is required by the Company to (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable government request; (ii) enforce the Company’s policies (including the Terms of Service) or contracts, including in connection with the investigation of potential violations; (iii) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; (iv) lawfully protect the rights, property or safety of the Company, our customers and users of the Services or the public.

We may share non-personal information publicly and with our partners. We will take steps to ensure that this non-personal information does not identify you, and we require any of our partners who have access to that non-personal information to do the same.

6. Protecting Your Personal Information. We use industry-standard methods and procedures to keep your Personal Information safe and secure when it is transmitted from you through the Internet to the Company’s servers, including any third-party servers utilized by the Company, where your personal information is processed. Depending on your location and type of data, the Company may process your Personal Information on servers that are not located in your home country. Unfortunately, the Internet and any technical system cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure or error-free, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us via the Internet. The transmission of such information is entirely at your own risk.

7. Processing of Your Personal Information. All information collected by the Services will be processed in and subject to the laws of the United States.
