In the course of providing our Services, we collect or receive your personal information in different ways. Often, you choose what information to provide, but sometimes we require certain information for you to use and for us to provide you the Services.

  1. Email Address. We process and store your email address when you provide it to us or when you connect a social media account that provides it to us. If you connect multiple social media accounts with different email addresses, we may have more than one email address associated with your account. We use your email address information to ensure that we can communicate you. We want to be able to provide you with information about your account when necessary, make it easier for you to provide support requests, and provide you with receipts if you make purchases. We also use your email address information to help us identify your account internally and with some payment providers, such as PayPal. By providing email address information, you can be informed about changes to your service, purchases you have made, and notifications about your account. We treat any email address you provide as private information.
