What is personal information?

As used herein, the term "Personal Information" means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, or other account number), and information about that individual's location or activities, such as information about his or her use of the Website, when directly linked to personally identifiable information.

Personal information also includes demographic information such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies you.

Aggregate data helps us understand trends and our users' needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our Website. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.
