You are responsible to review communications we send to those addresses, to authorize communications from us, and to keep those addresses up to date.

We, business partners, and service providers, use the Information about You to support your use of the Service.

Information about You is collected through a variety of sources, including directly from you, through your interaction with the Service, and from the other persons who may provide Information about You through the Service. Many functions of the Service involve you directly submitting information (such as by subscribing to one of our services) so you may benefit from features or participate in activities using the Service.

For example, We may create de-identified, statistical, and aggregate data results for research purposes and for reporting to other organizations. This data reported will not contain personal identifiers and will not identify individuals.
