What kinds of non-personal information do we collect about you?
The Company collects certain non-personal information about you. By “non-personal information,” we mean information about you that cannot be used, and is not stored, in a way that can identify you personally.
The Website will collect information about your location based on your IP address. An IP address is a user-supplied identifier that allows the Company to know, in general terms, where its users are located. An IP address is not the same as a physical address, and is not the same as either your shipping address or your billing address. The Company uses your IP address for internal purposes such as knowing which countries provide certain percentages of its users. The Company does not distribute your IP address to any other person. The Company does not verify your IP address or connect it to your shipping or billing address for purposes of checkout if you purchase any products or services from us. Your IP is not and cannot be used by the Company to identify you personally. The Company’s web host will also know your IP address for purposes of logging visits to the Website from your IP address and for preventing distributed denial-of-service attacks, which are disruptive attacks on websites caused by very large numbers of simultaneous visits to the Website.
The Company collects information about users such as the number of users visiting the Website at any given time, the times during which visitors visit the Website, the length of time that users use the Website, which pages they visit, which products they order, and what other actions they take while using the Website. This information is collected by the Website and is provided in an anonymized form to the Companys data analytics provider, which is Google Analytics (the “Data Analytics Provider”). This information is used by the Company to track the engagement, general geographic origin, and headcount of its users. This information is combined together to provide general demographic information on the Websites users. This information is not and cannot be used to identify you specifically. The Data Analytics Provider is a third party for purposes of the GDPR.
How is your information shared?
Content that you post to the Website is shared with your Friends, and in some cases with other users as described above. If you and another user have mutual Friends or share Content that we determine to be relevantly similar, we may share your name and a link to your profile with that user to suggest people you may know.
We also share Content and other information internally. We may review Content internally to determine that Content does not violate this Policy or our Terms and Conditions.
If we elect to provide promotional content or advertising, we may share information about the kinds of Content that you post and use, information related to your general geographic location as we infer it from your IP address, and other information that
you supply to the Website to ensure that promotional content or advertisements are relevant to your interests.

If we elect to provide for integration with other third-party apps or other services with the Website, we may share your Content or other information with those third-party apps or other services depending on their own terms and conditions. We will not share your information with any third-party apps or other services without first informing you.
If we have a good-faith belief that a user has posted Content or otherwise used the Website in a way that makes us believe that a user has engaged, or is about to engage, in criminal activity or other serious wrongdoing, we may share that information with the relevant authorities. If we do so, we may not inform you when we share that information.
