  • contact information if you contact us with an inquiry, provide feedback, or sign up for updates from us (email or postal address, telephone number),
  • purchase transaction information if you make a purchase (we use a third party service provider for these transactions so while we receive information about the transaction we do not receive your billing or payment information),
  • social network site user information if you access the Service through a social network (your social network site user identification number or other third party user identification number which may be linked to information that is publicly available, information that is visible on your social network page if you have allowed this through the privacy settings on your social network account),
