Information Collection, Use, and Sharing.
In General, we may collect information that can identify you, including your name and email, as well as information regarding your interests. If you choose to log in using your Facebook account, we may collect information tied to that account to populate app data. We may also request information about your location via GPS. By using the Service, you are authorizing us to gather, parse and retain data related to the provision of the Service.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via entry into the app or other direct contacts from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We collect information in a variety of ways to facilitate our services. This can include direct entry via forms, download through other websites that you connect us to (such as when logging in via Facebook), tracking codes such as cookies and pixel tags that save or track information about app usage, and automatically sent information such as IP address and device IDs.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order, or when requested to do so. We may share aggregated data based on information we collect with third parties at our discretion, but this information will not be specific to individual users and will not be personally identifying. Some of the information we collect, such as your name and profile information, may be publically displayed on the app as part of the app’s functions. This is to facilitate interactions and connections between users. The app will indicate when it is collecting information that is publically visible.

Security We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
However, no system can be completely secure. While we work to keep your information secure, we cannot ensure that information entered into the app will remain secure from sophisticated hacking.
