Information collection
We collect information in the following ways: (1) information voluntarily provided by our users; (2)
information automatically collected from our users; and (3) information obtained from third party
1. Information you voluntarily give us
We may collect information you provide directly via the Services. For example, we collect information
when you register an account, access our content, view or interact with other users’ content, create
your own content, or otherwise communicate or transact with us through the Services.
The information we collect may include personal information. "Personal information" is information that
identifies you personally (whether alone or in combination), such as your first and last name, email
address, phone number, postal address.
You may choose to voluntarily submit certain other information to us through the Services, including
personal information. You may provide us with profile information, such as a username, a slogan, your
gender, your date of birth, or a profile picture. However, as the Services are primarily designed to help
you share information with the world, we assume you are asking to make this information public, and
you are solely responsible for that information. When you follow other users, like or comment on their
content, or share your own information or content through the Services, including through your
broadcasts and on social feeds, you should think carefully about what you are making public.
Personal information once “de-identified” is not subject to this Privacy Policy and we and our service
providers may treat it as non-personal information and use it without obligation to you except as
prohibited by applicable law.
2. Information we get from your use of our Services
We may collect information about the Services that you use and how you use them, like when you visit
different parts of our Services or create content, and what selections you make on the Services. We may
also automatically collect certain technical information such as:
1. 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 Services).
2. Log information When you use our Services or view or create content on the Services, we
may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This information may

browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral
5. data that when combined with other data may uniquely identify your browser,
mobile device, or your account; or
6. browser type, operating system, and other technical information.
We may use tracking technologies now and hereafter developed to automatically collect information,

of information elements from your device’s browser, such as JavaScript objects and installed
fonts, in order to create a “fingerprint” of your device and uniquely identify your device and
6. In-App Tracking Methods. There are a variety of tracking technologies that may be included
in mobile apps, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by
browser settings. Some use device identifier, or other identifiers such as “Ad IDs” to
associate app user activity to a particular app and to track user activity across apps.
