We collect data to provide the services and products your request, ease your navigation on our Site, communicate with you, and improve your experience using the Site. Some of this information is provided by you directly, such as when you create an account on the Site. Some of the information is collected through your interactions with the Site. We collect such data using technologies like cookies and other tracking technologies, error reports, and usage data collected when you interact with our Site. The personal information we collect can include the following:
- Personally Identifiable Information. When you visit the site, you can browse without submitting personal information about yourself. If you choose to create an account or make a purchase on the Site, the personally identifiable information we collect will or may include: your name, e-mail address, postal address, phone number, password, and other profile information you provide to us when registering for an account.
- Classification Characteristics. When you visit the site and set up an account, you may have the option to provide us with your age and gender.
- Purchase History. When you make a purchase through the site, we will collect a record of any products purchased through the Site, which may include your purchasing or consuming histories or tendencies on our Site.

If you choose to register in this way, we will collect the information described in the section called "HOW DO WE HANDLE YOUR SOCIAL LOGINS.”
- Resumes. For certain purposes, you may choose to provide us with your resume, which can include your current or past job history.

1.2 Information automatically collected
We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use or navigate the Site, including through tracking technologies to collect certain technical information from your browser or device when you visit the Site. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information) but may include device and usage information, such as your Internet Protocol address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about how and when you use our Site and other technical information. We use this information to maintain and improve the security and operation of our Site, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.
Like many businesses, we also collect information through cookies and similar technologies (“Cookies”). Our collection of data through Cookies includes information about your browser and Site usage patterns, which may include your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, pages viewed, links clicked, whether you opened an email, and information about the device you use to access the Site. Our collection of this information allows us to improve your user experience in various ways, such as to personalize our display of the Site to you, to “remember” whether or not you are signed in, and to provide better technical support to you.
Please note: If you restrict, disable or block any or all Cookies from your web browser or mobile or other device, the Site may not operate properly, and you may not have access to our Site. We will not be liable for any impossibility to use the Site or degraded functioning thereof, where such are caused by your settings and choices regarding Cookies.
1.3 Pixels (aka web beacons/web bugs/java script). We may use Pixels to automatically record certain technical information about your interactions with us when you visit the Site or otherwise engage with us, to help deliver cookies on our Site, or count users who have visited our Site. We may also include web beacons in our promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether you open or act on them for statistical purposes. Pixels are tiny graphics (about the size of a period at the end of a sentence) with unique identifiers used to track certain online actions, movements and related information of Site users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, Pixels are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. The data we receive through Pixels allows us to effectively promote the Site to various populations of users, and to optimize external ads about the Site that appear on third-party websites.
1.5 Location Information.
We do not collect precise geolocation data from you or your device, but may collect and use information about your general location (such as any city, state or country of residence supplied by you when setting up your user profile) or infer your approximate location based on your IP address in order to track our general website usage or to tailor any pertinent aspects of your user or educational experience to your region.
1.6 User Contributions.
You also may provide Contributions on public areas of the Site, which can be seen by other users of the Site or third parties. Your Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Site with whom you may choose to share your Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.

If you use our mobile applications, we may also collect the following information:
- Mobile Device Access. We may request access or permission to certain features from your mobile device, including your mobile device's Bluetooth, calendar, camera, microphone, social media accounts, storage, and other features.

- Mobile Device Data. We may automatically collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system, version information and IP

2. HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?
We will only use or disclose your information described in the categories identified above for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.
We use or disclose information collected via our Site for the following purposes: (A) to fulfill or meet the reason you provided the information; (B) to provide, support, personalize, and develop our Site; (C) to create, maintain, customize, and secure your account with us; (D) to provide you with support and to respond to your inquiries, including to investigate and address your concerns and monitor and improve our responses; (E) to personalize your experience and to deliver content and product and service offerings relevant to your interests, including offers and ads through our Site, third-party sites, and via email (with your consent, where required by law); (F) to help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of our Site, databases and other technology assets, and business; (G) for testing, research, analysis, and product development, including to develop and improve our Site; (H) to respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations; (I) to fulfill and manage your orders; (J) to administer prize draws and competitions; (K) for other business purposes, such as data analysis, identifying usage trends, determining effectiveness of promotional campaigns, and internal evaluations to improve the Site and user experience; (L) as described to you when collecting your personal information or as otherwise set forth in the CCPA; and (M) to evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of the our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our users is among the assets transferred.
We may use and store this information in aggregated and anonymized form so that it is not associated with individual end users and does not include personal information. We will not use identifiable personal information without your consent.
3. WILL YOUR INFORMATION BE SHARED WITH ANYONE?
3.1 Disclosure to Third Parties. We may disclose your personal information to a third party for a business purpose. When we disclose any information to a third party, we do so for a business purpose and enter into a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
3.2 Third-Party Service Providers. We may share your information with service providers, vendors, consultants, contractors or agents who perform services for us or on our behalf and require access to such information to perform that work, for purposes such as payment processing, data analysis, email delivery, hosting services, customer service and marketing efforts. We may allow selected third parties to use tracking technology on the Site, which will enable them to collect data about how you interact with the Site over time.
3.3 Third-Party Advertisers. We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit the Site. These companies may use information about your visits to our Site and other websites that are contained in web cookies and other tracking technologies in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Our Site may also display a third-party hosted “offer wall.” Such an offer wall allows third-party advertisers to offer virtual currency, gifts, or other items to users in return for acceptance and completion of an advertisement offer. Such an offer wall may appear in our mobile application and be displayed to you based on certain data, such as your geographic area or demographic information. When you click on an offer wall, you will leave our mobile application. A unique identifier, such as your user ID, will be shared with the offer wall provider in order to prevent fraud and properly credit your account.
4. HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
4.1 We use certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to preserve the security of the personal and other information we maintain in connection with your use of the Site. For example, when you enter personally identifiable information, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) or similar technologies. This, however, does not guarantee that your information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by any breach of our physical, technical or managerial safeguards. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and will notify you, as appropriate, in accordance with pertinent laws and regulations.
4.2 Personally identifiable information collected by the Site is stored in operating environments that are safeguarded against access by the public and protected from access internally by physical and technical security measures. While these measures are helpful to safeguard your personal information after we receive it, no transmission of data over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
5. HOW DO WE HANDLE YOUR SOCIAL LOGINS?
Our Site offers you the ability to register and login using your third party social media account details, such as your login credentials for Facebook or Twitter. Where you choose to do this, we will receive certain profile information about you from your social media account. The profile information we receive may vary depending from one social media provider to the next, but the provided information will often include your name, e-mail address, friends list, profile picture, and other information you have chosen to make publicly available.
6. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION?
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or de-identify and anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

7.2 Cookies and Similar Technologies. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies. If you choose to remove cookies or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our Site.

7.3 Opting Out of Marketing E-mails: You can unsubscribe from our marketing e-mail list at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mails that we send or by contacting us using the details set forth in QUESTIONS OR REQUESTS HANDLING.
