This information includes:

    • Device Information.
      We may collect information about your device, including the phone model, screen size, mobile network information, unique device identifiers (including MAC address and IMEI), operating system and version, browser type and language, and mobile device phone number. We may also collect certain device information that will help us diagnose problems in the (hopefully rare) event you experience any crash or other problem while using our Service. For example, if we detect a crash or other problematic event, we may collect the list of apps on your device and other information about your device’s performance at the time of the event for troubleshooting purposes.
    • Location and Biometric Information.
      We may obtain information about your device location, such as by use of GPS and other geolocation features in your device, or by inference from other information we collect (for example, your IP address indicates the general geographic region from which you are connecting to the Internet). You may enable security settings on your device through the Service using your voice or fingerprints. We will collect and process voice or fingerprint data only in connection with providing the Service to you.
    • Cookies and Other Automatically Collected Information.
      We use cookies to help us understand how users interact with the Service, which in turn helps us improve the Service. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that store information about your use of the Service, which can, among other things, help us see which areas and features of the Service are popular and let us count visits. We also use web beacons and clear gifs to help us understand how users interact with the Site and Service, which in turn helps us improve the Service. Web beacons and clear gifs help us see how you interact with webpages or emails. The information collected by these technologies may include your IP address, other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the Service, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Service, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Service. We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users, and may be connected with other information about you. Finally, we collect log file information when you use our Site. That information includes, among other things, your web browser type and language, access times, pages viewed, your IP address, and the website you visited before navigating to our websites.
    • Third Party Web Beacons and Third Party Buttons.
      We may display third-party content on the Service, including third-party advertising. Third-party content may use cookies, web beacons, or other mechanisms for obtaining data in connection with your viewing of the third party content on the Service. Additionally, we may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may function as web beacons even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through third-party web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties, not by us. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
  • Information We Collect from Other Sources. We may obtain information from third parties and sources other than the Service, such as our partners and advertisers.
  • Information We Collect When You Contact Us. Whenever you have a question for our helpful support team, you may contact us at When you contact the support team or communicate with us in any other way, we collect whatever information you volunteer.

Generally, we limit the information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and we generally require them to agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
  • We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws, in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies.

We may make certain aggregated, automatically-collected, or otherwise de-identified information available to third parties for various purposes, including (i) compliance with various reporting obligations; (ii) for business or marketing purposes; or (iii) to assist such parties in understanding our users’ interests, habits, and usage patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality available through the Service.

The Service may also contain third-party links or be a co-branded or third-party-branded service that’s being provided jointly with or by another company. By going to those links or by using a co-branded or third-party-branded Service, you may be providing information directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. As always, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party website or service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our Service.
