In order to process transactions through the Site, we ask for credit card number and other billing information ("Billing Information") (Identity Information and Billing Information together, "Personal Information"). If the address you post matches that of your credit card billing address, that address would be considered Identity Information.
You can also register to join by logging into online accounts you may have with third party service providers; each such account, a "Third Party Account", via our Site as described below. As part of the functionality of the Site, Service, you may link your Company account with Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to Company through the Site or Service; or (ii) allowing Company to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to us and/or grant us access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Company to pay any fees or making Company subject to any usage limitations. If you decide to register by logging into a Third Party Account via our Site, we will obtain the Personal Information you have provided such as name, email address, profile picture, names of friends, names of groups to which you belong, other information you make publicly available and/or other information you authorize Company to access from your Third Party Accounts and use that information to create your personal and/or Company account and personal and/or Company account profile page. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, you understand that by granting us access to the Third Party Accounts, we will access, make available and store the information in your Third Party Accounts so that it is available on and through your personal and/or Company Account on the Site, and Service. If there is information about your "friends" or people with whom you are associated in your Third Party Account, the information we obtain about those "friends" or people with whom you are associated, may also depend on the privacy settings such people have.
We collect other information (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences or demographic information) ("Non-Identifying Information").
Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your demographic information). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions.
We also use your Personal Information to contact you with Company newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may decide at any time to unsubscribe. Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.
