What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Wherever possible, you can elect to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym in interacting with me.

I collect information you provide directly to me. For example, I collect information when you create an account, participate in any interactive features of the Services, subscribe to a newsletter or email list, participate in an event, survey, contest or promotion, make a purchase, communicate with us via third-party social media sites, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us.

The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, password, postal address, phone number, gender, date of birth, occupation, employer information, photo, payment information (such as your credit or debit card and billing address), preference or interest data, and any other information you choose to provide.

If you provide an email address to invite a friend to participate in the Services, we will collect that email address and use it to send your friend such an invitation.

If you don’t want to provide me with personal data, you don’t have to, but it might mean you can’t use some parts of the website or services.

I may also conduct surveys or market research and may seek other information from you on a periodic basis. These surveys will provide me with information that allows improvement in the types and quality of services offered to you, and the manner in which those services are offered to you.
