You are solely responsible for your Content. You assume all risks associated with the use and sharing of your Content, including any reliance on its accuracy, completeness or usefulness by others, or any disclosure of your Content that makes you or any third party personally identifiable.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information. “Personally Identifiable Information” means any information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you. Such Personally Identifiable Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, and billing and credit/debit card information. We request Personally Identifiable Information from you when you register for an Account.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information. When you browse the Platform or become a registered user, we may also collect information that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (for example, age, profession or gender) (collectively, "Non-Personally Identifiable Information"). Non-Personally Identifiable Information may also include user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Platform or Services. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is used to help us understand who uses the Platform and Services and to improve the Platform and Services.
WHERE AND WHEN INFORMATION ABOUT YOU IS COLLECTED
We may collect information (including information that is Personally Identifiable Information) from you when you register for an Account or create and share your Content via the Platform.

Cookies can be used to (i) recognize your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and/or (ii) help you save you time (a) while you are visiting/using the Platform, or (b) when you want to enter the Platform.
Your browser can be set to not accept cookies, but if you elect to do so, some parts of the Platform or the Services may not function properly on your mobile or desktop device.

If you provide the Company with any suggestions (“Suggestions”) with regard to the Platform or the Services, you hereby assign to the Company all rights to the Suggestions and agree that the Company shall have the right to use such Suggestions and related information in any manner it deems appropriate. We will treat any Suggestion you provide to us as non-confidential and non-proprietary. You agree that you will not submit to us any information or ideas that you consider to be confidential or proprietary.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Non-Personally Identifiable Information and anonymous aggregate statistics that do not personally identify a user will be kept and may be used by us for various purposes including analysis and reporting of Platform usage patterns. We reserve the right to use and disclose Non-Personally Identifiable Information and anonymous aggregate statistics for any purpose and to any third party at our sole discretion.

We may engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, payment processing, hosting and maintenance, and database storage and management. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and get such services.

PAYMENT PROCESSING VIA PAYPAL
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
The Platform may contain links to third-party websites. The fact that our Platform may contain links to third-party websites, it shall not be construed as an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with those third parties. We do not exercise control over third-party websites either. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from you. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
The security of your information is important to us. We use commercially reasonable efforts to store and maintain your information in a secure environment and have implemented commercially reasonable procedures designed to limit unauthorized access, use or disclosure of your information. We follow strict password requirements and OWASP guidelines for secure coding.
You are also responsible for helping us protect the security of your Personally Identifiable Information. For instance, never give out your password, and remember to log out of your Account when you are finished using the Platform. Despite these measures, you should know that we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with your information.
The age of majority depends upon jurisdiction and application, but it is generally set at eighteen (18). Minors or the underaged may use the Platform and the Services, however, a parent or legal guardian must be the one who registers for an Account providing us his/her personal information and not the child’s.
Therefore, we do not knowingly collect or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to open an Account on the Platform.
If you are under 18, please do not attempt to open any such Account or send any information about yourself to us, including your name or email address.
No one under the age of 18 may provide any Personally Identifiable Information to the Company via the Platform. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personally Identifiable Information from an individual under the age of 18 without any prior parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about an individual under the age of 18, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
