We collect information to provide better services to our users and improve our business. 

We collect information in two ways:

When you sign up for an account, we will ask you for simple personal information including your email and similar information and in some cases we may ask you to provide billing information.
  • Information we get from your use of our website and view of our sponsored content. We may collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you visit different parts of our website or view our sponsored content, and what selections you make. We may also automatically collect certain technical information such as:
    • Device information. We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile information if you use a mobile device to access the site).
