For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “you” and “your” means you as the user of the Services. 

  1. TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you use the Services, we may collect Information in the following categories:

  • Personal Information,” which means information that identifies you (whether directly or indirectly), such as your name, postal address, email address and telephone number. 
  •  “Non-Personal Information,” which means information that does not directly or indirectly identify, and cannot reasonably be used to identify you. If Non-Personal Information is directly or indirectly associated with Personal Information, this Non-Personal Information is then treated as Personal Information. 

Information we may collect about you includes:

  • Information you provide when you access or use the Services and each time you interact with the Services or otherwise with us, for example, when you provide us with feedback or contact us with a question or comment. 
  • Information you provide in public forums through the Services, including using our review, comment, post or similar functionality.

For example, if you access the Services through a third party platform or log-in, we may also collect your email address and other Information associated with that third party, and any Information you have made public in connection with that service or which the third party shares with partner services.
