You can access and interact with our Platform in many ways, including from a computer or mobile device. This Policy applies regardless of how you access or interact with our Platform. Depending on how you interact with our Platform, there may be some cases where we need to provide you with additional information about how we collect, use, protect or disclose your Personal Data and/or what options you have regarding our collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Data.

Please read this Policy carefully. If you do not want us to collect, use or disclose your Personal Data in the ways described in this Policy, please do not use or otherwise interact with our Platform, provide us with your Personal Data or authorize any third party to make your Personal Data available to us.

PERSONAL DATA AND OTHER INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Our primary goals in collecting Personal Data are to provide and improve our Platform, conduct our Operations, communicate with people and enable visitors to our Platform to easily navigate and enjoy them.

When we refer to “Personal Data” in this Policy, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes or is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to a specific person. This might be information that directly identifies someone, such as their name, or it may be information that identifies someone only when combined with other information available to us, such as a person’s activity on our Platform when associated with their username. Please note, except as provided under applicable laws, Personal Data does not include information that is publicly available through government records or information that has been deidentified or aggregated in a way that it cannot be used to identify a specific individual.

Categories of Personal Data We Collect

Depending on how you access, use or otherwise interact with our Platform, we, or third parties acting on our behalf, may collect the following categories of Personal Data about you:

Other Information We Collect

We, or third parties acting on our behalf, collect certain information about the device you use when you visit or otherwise interact with our Platform and through the use of cookies, pixels and other web technologies (collectively, “Usage Data”). Usage Data, by itself, generally does not identify the specific person using the device that generated it. This means that Usage Data usually will not be considered Personal Data and our use of such Usage Data is not subject to this Policy unless required pursuant to applicable law. However, if we link Usage Data directly with other Personal Data or other information that could identify you, we will treat the linked Usage Data as Personal Data and use the linked Usage Data as described in this Policy.

Depending on how you interact with our Platform, the Usage Data that we, or third parties acting on our behalf, may collect may include:

HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL DATA

A large portion of the Personal Data we, or third parties acting on our behalf, collect is directly from you and other users who provide their Personal Data to us directly. In some cases, we may collect Personal Data from third parties in the ways described in this Policy.

Directly from You

When you access, use or otherwise interact with our Platform, or otherwise engage with us in connection with our Platform, such as requesting more information about us, communicating with us, accessing, using or otherwise interacting with our Platform, we may ask you to provide certain Personal Data. Some of the Personal Data we request with respect to certain features of our Platform may not be required; however, we will let you know if specific Personal Data is required to use those features. If you do not provide us with the Personal Data required to use a certain feature on our Platform, you will not be able to use that feature, especially those features where we are legally required to collect the Personal Data and those where it is impossible for the feature to operate without the required Personal Data (e.g., collecting your payment information in order to process an order you place in the Angel store).

From Third Parties

We, or third parties acting on our behalf, may collect Personal Data about you from third parties, including, without limitation, online and offline sources, entities affiliated with us, our service providers, social media platforms, advertising networks and other public or commercial sources (collectively, “Third Party Sources”). The collection of Personal Data from these Third Party Sources can occur in a variety of ways, including, without limitation:

Please note, we may combine the Personal Data and other content and information we receive about you from multiple sources, including, without limitation, Personal Data we collect directly from you and one or more Third Party Sources.

HOW WE COLLECT USAGE DATA

We, and third parties acting on our behalf, collect Usage Data in a variety of ways. Some Usage Data, such as the IP address of a device attempting to access, use or interact with our Platform, is necessary for us to make certain portions of our Platform available. Other Usage Data, such as information about which features of our Platform are popular, helps us improve and advertise our Platform. This section describes the primary ways Usage Data is collected in connection with our Platform.

Please note, we have not yet developed a response to browser “Do Not Track” signals and do not change any of our data collection practices when we receive such signals. We will continue to evaluate potential responses to “Do Not Track” signals in light of industry developments or legal changes.

HOW WE USE PERSONAL DATA

We use Personal Data for various purposes to operate and improve our Platform and to conduct our Operations. The primary purposes for which we use Personal Data are:

We will not collect additional categories of Personal Data or use the Personal Data we, or third parties acting on our behalf, collect in connection with our Platform for materially different, unrelated or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.

Please note, we may use and disclose aggregated, anonymized or de-identified information collected in connection with our Platform and other information that does not identify any individual (“Anonymized Data”) for any lawful purposes, which may include, without limitation, purposes not described in this Policy. Except as otherwise required under applicable laws, our use and disclosure of such Anonymized Data is not subject to this Policy.
