- if you are a Customer (defined below), we will collect your name, e-mail, phone number, credit card information, and billing address during the Customer;

In addition, we may request access to other information stored with such Third-Party Site, such as your contacts. We store the information that we receive from Third-Party Sites with other information that we collect from you or receive about you, but the applicable Third-Party Site controls the information it collects from you.

Cookies and Other Tracking Mechanisms
Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate the Service, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities while using the Service. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to the Service who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Service, but some features may not function (e.g., you may not be able to stay logged into your account).
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (also referred to as web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with the Service to, among other things, track the activities users of the Service, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of the Service. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
Payment Information & Processing
Our payment processor may provide us with unique authentication tokens to make payments requests with and may also provide us with information such as your name, credit card type, expiration date, and the last four digits of your credit card number. This information is used only to make single payment requests, or to register you for an ongoing Subscription that requires automatic payments in the future. Our third-party payment processors are bound by contractual obligations to keep such personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. However, we are not responsible for any third-party payment processor’s use of the personal information they collect in connection with your financial transactions made via the Service.
Do Not Track Disclosure
Our Service does not respond to Do Not Track signals. For more information about Do Not Track signals, please click here. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in the Cookies and Other Tracking Mechanisms section above (e.g., by disabling cookies). You also may opt out of targeted advertising by following the instructions in the “Interest-Based Advertising” section below.
We use third parties such as network advertisers to serve advertisements on the Service and on third-party websites or other media (e.g., social media platforms). This enables us and these third parties to target advertisements to you for products and services in which you might be interested. Users in the United States may opt out of many third-party ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and your choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and your choices regarding having information used by NAI members.
Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will opt you out from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Site or on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA’s website at www.aboutads.info or the NAI’s website at www.networkadvertising.org.
Third-Party Sites & Services
We have taken steps to help protect the personal information we collect. However, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your device and account by, among other things, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
Accessing, Modifying, or Deleting Your Personal Information. You may access, modify, or delete the personal information that you have provided to us by logging into your account settings or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we may retain certain information about you as required by law or as permitted by law for legitimate business purposes (e.g., in accordance with our lawful record retention policies). For example, if you request that we delete your information but we believe that you have violated any Customer Terms, User Terms or Website Terms, we may retain information about you in order to attempt to resolve the issue before deleting it.
Opting out of Marketing Emails. We may send periodic promotional e-mails to you. You may opt out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the e-mail or e-mailing us at email@example.com. Please note that it may take up to ten (10) business days for us to process opt-out requests.
