The Information We Collect
Below are the different types of information we may collect.
Non-personally identifiable information, which may be provided by you during the registration process or collected when you use our Services ("Non-Personal Information"). Non-Personal Information does not allow us to identify the individual from whom it was collected. The Non-Personal Information we collect consists primarily of technical information and aggregate usage information.
Individually identifiable information, that is, information that identifies you or can, with reasonable effort, identify you ("Personal Information"). The Personal Information we collect through our Services includes name, email address, address, phone number, IP address, or other information requested whenever necessary. If we combine Personal Information with non-personal Information, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information for as long as it remains combined.

We encourage you to set strong passwords and to avoid providing us or anyone else with sensitive information the disclosure of which you believe could cause you substantial or irreparable harm.
