What information do we collect from users?
The following describes the types of personal and other information we may collect about you, and how we use and maintain that information:
Registration. Before you can pre-Order or Order any of our Products or use the Services that we offer on the Site or otherwise, you will be required to register with us and provide us with certain information, including your email address, a password, your first and last name and other contact information and personal details. We request this information for identification purposes, to communicate with you regarding your account, and to facilitate the functioning of our Services. If you wish to pre-Order or Order Products, you will need to provide us with certain additional information, such as debit card number, credit card number, expiration date, bank account information, billing address, activation codes and similar information.
Correspondence. If you correspond with us via email, we may gather in a file specific to you the information that you submit.
URL and IP addresses. Like many other websites, we collect information about users’ use and navigation of our Site and Services. This information helps us to design our Site and Services to better suit our users’ needs. For example, our Site will track the URL that you visited before you came to our Site, the URL to which you next go and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Site. Your IP address also is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information.

We may also implement third-party content or advertising on the Site that may use clear gifs or other forms of web beacons, which allow the third-party content provider to read and write cookies to your browser in connection with your viewing of the third party content on the Site. Information collected through web beacons is collected directly by these third parties, and we do not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use and disclosure policies.

We may offer certain features as part of our Services in whole or in part based on your location, such as to locate the mobile device on which you have installed or downloaded an App. You will be given the opportunity to opt-in to location-based services, normally through an opt-in screen on the App. If you choose to enable location-based services, we may collect your location based on information provided by you or the mobile device, including, if available, GPS, IP address or cell tower information.
