2. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION
The following is a description of the types of information we may collect from or about you and for what purposes it will be used. Depending on which Services you use, some or all of these collection practices may apply.
A. PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect and store Personal Information that you provide when you visit our site, engage with the GRATSY bot, register an account with us , or otherwise use our Services . This can include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, mailing address, email address, birthday, username and profile details from your social media accounts, information about how you use our Services, and other information discoverable as a result of the information you provide or from how you use our Services. This also includes how you engage with our Services, such as product samples, coupons, or other offers you have received, requested, used, expressed an interest in, or provided feedback on.
We may also collect information from or about the computers, phones, and other devices you use to use our Services, including but not limited to the internet protocol address from which you visit our site; browser type; other browsing information including sites you visit before and after visiting our site; and other usage data from your browser, mobile phone or other device including location data, which may be combined with other information to identify you. When combined with your personal information, this information allows us to provide Services that remember your preferences.
Please note that some of the Personal Information we collect is required to opt-in and use the Services, and all of the Personal Information we collect is necessary to enjoy and improve the full benefit of the Services. Accordingly, your refusal to provide, or your request to delete, certain Personal Information may prevent or limit your use and enjoyment of the Services. You may confirm the Personal Information we have collected about you by contacting us at email@example.com or referencing the GRATSY Bot communications.
By default, some of the information you post on or through your GRATSY account may be displayed publicly on the Services, and may be collected and used by other Users or the public. If you do not want other Users or the public to have particular information, then do not publish that information on the Services.
B. NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect and store information about how you use the Services through tracking, tags, “cookies,” and other identification technology. We may also convert your IP address into an approximate location for our use as anonymous, generalized information. This non-personal information allows us to provide Services that remember your preferences and also allows us to improve and update the Services based on aggregated usage information. Disabling the use of these technologies on the Services may prevent or limit your use and enjoyment of the Services. If you visit our site or service using a browser with “Do Not Track” settings, we cannot guarantee that our data collection practices and those of our partners will accommodate your preferences.
We also collect, store, and use anonymous, aggregate User information that we create in part from anonymized Personal Information and usage records and patterns. This information includes, but is not limited to, geographic and demographic information about Users, and search and usage patterns from Users.
C. FINANCIAL INFORMATION
We do not store personal financial information from Users. In some cases, we may use your shipping address to send samples, offers, coupons, or cash rebates. Any online transactions made through our Services are encrypted to be processed by a third party, whose policies and terms you should review carefully if and when you enter any bank or credit card information. You acknowledge and agree that you will be subject to the third-party terms and conditions associated with those third-party services if you choose to use those features. Those terms and conditions may be materially different than our policies, especially with regard to information privacy and security. You specifically acknowledge that you understand that the third-party terms and conditions will apply to your financial information collected to enable and process the required payments on the Services.
To be used for the purposes described in sections 2A and 2B above, we may collect other information related to your transactions and your account with us, including: identifiers that correspond to your account with our third party payment processor, and other non-financial details such as the parties to the transaction, goods or services purchased, purchase price, and shipping information.
3. SHARING INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES
We may share information about our Users with third parties to improve the Services with better updates, better communication, and better responsiveness.
We may at our discretion share anonymous, aggregate information about our Users with our partners and other people and businesses we do business with.
As noted above, certain information you make available on the Services is visible and available to other Users and the public. Sharing information from or features of the Services (on Facebook or Instagram, for example) will also increase the public visibility and availability of that information. Because of this, you understand that certain information may be indexed and visible through search engines and otherwise made widely available to the public.
GRATSY uses third-party providers to discover additional information about our Users, to facilitate the operation of our Services and to process payments and fees on the Services. You acknowledge and agree that you will also be subject to the third-party terms and conditions associated with those third-party services if you choose to use those features. Those terms and conditions may be materially different than our policies, especially with regard to information privacy and security. You specifically acknowledge that you understand that the third-party terms and conditions will apply to your financial information to the extent that information is collected to enable and process the required payments or purchases on the Services.
We may share information about you, including Personal Information, with your consent for the purpose disclosed at the time you provide the information. This could include opting in to future communication and/or offers from one or more third parties. GRATSY Services may also contain links to and from the websites of our partners, advertisers, and affiliates. These third parties have their own privacy policies, and Gratsy is not responsible or liable for these policies.
We will attempt to protect your information from disclosure in most instances as a general policy. However, we reserve the right to release any User information that we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; (ii) enforce these Terms, including investigation of potential violations; (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues, (iv) respond to User support requests; and (v) protect the rights, property, or safety of GRATSY, our Users and the public.
4. PRIVACY OF CHILDREN
GRATSY values the privacy of children. To protect that privacy, we take the following steps: use of the Services is not allowed for children under the age of 18. Any attempt by a child under the age of 18 to use the Services will be void.

If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
GRATSY cares about the security of User information and Personal Information.

For example, information we collect and store is password protected at our administrator level. We may implement additional security features in the future.
