We may automatically track certain information about you based upon your behaviour on the Platform.

This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. This information may include (but not limited to) the information about your computer, browser information, connection information, your IP address, the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our Platform or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our Platform or not), and statistics of the pages viewed by you i.e. the links you click on the Platform, the number of times you access the page, things you view and other websites you open simultaneously while browsing on ours etc. Your Personal Information allows us to inform you about updates or changes to Services and terms and conditions of providing you the Services.

We use your internet protocol (IP) address to administer the Platform, to help identify you, and to gather broad demographic data. Your IP address contains no personal information about you.

We use data collection devices such as "cookies" or other similar devices or technologies on certain pages of the Website and the App, as the case may be, to help analyze our web page flow or App usage, measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.

"Cookies" are small files placed on your hard drive (after our web server sends them to your web browser or device through the App) that assist us in providing our services by enabling our web server to collect certain information from the browser or device. We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a "cookie". We also use cookies for a number of purposes, including to allow you to enter your password less frequently during a session, to simplify logging process for registered users, to start a session when logging into our Platform, to enable your browser or device to remember your username between sessions, to enable traffic monitoring, to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not.

You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits (or delete them by looking at the help menu of your browser or device), although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on the Website or App and you may be required to re-enter your password more frequently during a session. A cookie does not give us access to your computer or device, or information other than the data you choose to share with us.

Additionally, you may encounter "cookies" or other similar devices on certain pages of the Website or App that are placed by third parties. For example, if you view a web page created by a user, there may be a "cookie" placed within that web page. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties (or the resulting information that they record).

When you use one of our location-enabled services (for example, when you access Services from a mobile device), we may collect and process information about your mobile device’s GPS location and the time and/or location information is recorded to customize the Services with location-based information and features. Some of these Services require your personal data for the feature to work and we may associate location data with your device ID and other information we hold about you. We keep this data for no longer than is reasonably necessary for providing services to you. If you wish to use the particular feature, you will be asked to consent to your data being used for this purpose. You can withdraw your consent at any time by disabling the GPS or other location tracking functions on your device.
