Our goal is to collect and use only that information that we think is required for our legitimate business interests, in order to better understand your interests and to improve your experience of using our Site or other Service. Our business interests including facilitating and improving engagement between content providers and content fans and consumers, including you.

When you make purchases on the Site or Service, we will collect all information necessary to process the transaction (though some of this information may go directly to our payment provider).
We may create interfaces that allow you to connect with social networking services (each an “SNS”) such as Facebook. We work with the SNS’s application protocol interface (also often called a developer “API”) in a way that allows you to authorize us to access your account on that SNS on your behalf. In order to provide this authorization, you do not provide us with your user name or password to the SNS, but you will need to log-in to that SNS directly through our Services. Once authorized by you, the SNS provides us a token that allows the SNS to recognize when we ask, on your behalf, for access to your account or to post information. For example, when you click “Connect” to grant us access to your Facebook account, we will import your name and other information from Facebook and as you use our Site or Service, we may periodically check for updates to such information. You can revoke our access to any SNS at any time by amending the appropriate settings from within your account settings on the applicable SNS.
