We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us including but not limited to your name, email address, gender, location, and any third party account information you five us access to (IE Facebook). Certain information may be required to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features. Note that we don’t actually store your passwords for those Third Party Accounts.

For example, you may be able to submit feedback, share your experience on social media, view your purchase history, join programs, visit websites, or take advantage of promotions.
