Such Personally Identifiable Information may include, but is not limited to, a name, identification number, an online identifier, mailing or billing address, email address, telephone number, photo, signature, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address location data, cookie identifier, date of birth, billing or credit/debit card information, or one or more factors specific to physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of a person.
? “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” means information that cannot be used to identify or contact a person. Such Non-Personally Identifiable Information may include, but is not limited to, user’s browser type, browser version, operating system, files viewed, webpages visited, time and date of user’s visit, time spent on each webpage and other anonymous statistical data.
? “Supplier’s Content” shall mean any and all content (including, but not limited to, text, service or product descriptions, pictures, videos) that a Supplier uploads, posts, displays, shares and otherwise makes available on or through the Platform.
We collect both Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information about you. Here is the description of information we collect about you, how and why we use it, and under what circumstances your information may be shared with others:
? Supplier’s Content. If you are a Supplier, any information, descriptions, pictures, videos, or other materials uploaded, posted, displayed, shared and otherwise made available by you on or through the Platform will be collected and stored by us for the purpose of creating a profile for your business. You are solely responsible for such Supplier’s Content. You assume all risks associated with the use and sharing of such Supplier’s Content, including any reliance on its accuracy, completeness or usefulness by others, or any disclosure of your Content that makes you or any third party personally identifiable.
? Submission of Suggestions, Reviews, Comments, Feedback. If you provide us with any suggestions, review, comments or feedback about the Platform or Company Services (“Feedback”), you will automatically assign to us all rights to the Feedback and agree that we shall have the right to use such Feedback and related information in any manner we deem appropriate. We will treat any Feedback you provide to us as non-confidential and non-proprietary. You agree that you will not submit to us any information or ideas that you consider to be confidential or proprietary. We use TrustPilot.com to collect reviews from the users of the Platform. TrustPilot.com collects names and email addresses.

? Cookie Identifiers. “Cookies” are small files created by websites a user visits. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular user and website, and can be accessed either by a web server or such user’s computer. Cookies are a convenient way to carry information from one session on a website to another, or between sessions on related websites, without having to burden a server machine with massive amounts of data storage. Storing the data on the server without using Cookies would also be problematic because it would be difficult to retrieve a particular user's information without requiring a login on each visit to the website. If there is a large amount of information to store, then a Cookie can simply be used as a means to identify a given user so that further related information can be looked up on a server-side database. For example, the first time a user visits a Platform he/she may choose a username, which is stored in the Cookie, and then provide data such as password, name, address, preferred font size, and so on. This information would all be stored in a database using the username as a key. Subsequently when the Platform is revisited the server will read the Cookie to find the username, and then retrieve all the user's information from the database without making the user to re-enter it.
By using the Platform, you agree that we may use such Cookies as:
? PHPSESSID (stores session ID) in order to identify you as a user of the Site,
? TawkConnectionTime (by Tawk.to) to provide you with a LiveChat,
? atuvc (by AddThis), and
? gat, ga, and gid (by Google Analytics)
? Google Analytics and Similar Analytics Tools. Third party services such as Google Analytics help businesses analyze the traffic to their websites and mobile applications by collecting, monitoring and analyzing Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
? Facebook’s Remarketing Service. We use Facebook’s remarketing services to show advertisements (also called interest-based advertising) to you on third party websites after you have visited the Platform. You can learn more about interest-based advertising from Facebook by visiting www.facebook.com/help/164968693837950. To manage your ad setting or preferences, follow the instructions found here www.facebook.com/about/ads/#568137493302217. Facebook adheres to the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising established by the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). You can also opt-out from Facebook and other participating companies through the DAA in the USA www.aboutads.info/choices/, the DAA of Canada in Canada www.youradchoices.ca or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance in Europe www.youronlinechoices.eu, or opt-out using your mobile device settings.

? Business Transfers or Bankruptcy. We may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our assets, including your Personally Identifiable Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.

We may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend our rights or property, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Service users or the public, or (iv) protect us from legal liability.
? Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We reserve the right to use and disclose Non-Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose and to share it with any third party at our sole discretion.
The security of your information is important to us. We use commercially reasonable efforts to store and maintain your information in a secure environment and have implemented commercially reasonable procedures designed to limit unauthorized access, use or disclosure of your information. Our server is hosted and protected by Web Optic Limited.
You are also responsible for helping us protect the security of your Personally Identifiable Information.

Despite these measures, you should know that we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with your information.

If you are under 18, please do not attempt to open any such Account or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address.
