How We Collect Your Personal Information
We obtain personal information from various sources. We do this in two main ways:
- You provide some of it directly.

Information You Provide Directly to Us
When you use the Services, we collect information from you in a number of ways. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. For example, we ask you to provide your name and email address to register and manage your Account. We also maintain the emails and other communications that you send us or otherwise contribute, such as support inquiries. You might also provide us with information in other ways, including by responding to surveys, submitting a form, or participating in contests or similar promotions.
If you make a purchase on this Site, you will provide additional personal and payment information that is required to process the transaction and your payment, such as your name, payment card information, and contact information. Our current Payment Processors are Stripe and PayPal. Stripe and PayPal use and process your complete payment information in accordance with their respective policies. For your security, we do not hold or store your card details on this Site.
Sometimes we require you to provide us with information for contractual or legal reasons. We will normally let you know when information is required, and the consequences of failing to provide it. If you do not provide personal information when requested, you may not be able to use the Services if that information is necessary to provide you with the service or if we are legally required to collect it.

Your Rights and Choices
Where applicable law requires (and subject to any relevant exceptions under law), you may have the right to access, update, change, or delete personal information.
You can access, update, change, or delete personal information either directly in your Account or by contacting us to request the required changes. You can also elect not to receive marketing communications by changing your preferences in your Account or by following the unsubscribe instruction in such communications.
Please note that, for technical reasons, there is likely to be a delay in deleting your personal information from our systems when you ask us to delete it. We also will retain personal information in order to comply with the law, protect our and others’ rights, resolve disputes or enforce our legal terms or policies, to the extent permitted under applicable law.
You may have the right to restrict or object to the processing of your personal information or to exercise a right to data portability under applicable law. You also may have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority, subject to applicable law. If you are subject to the EU data protection laws, we suggest you lodge any such complaints with a supervisory authority in the place of your habitual residence, place of work, or place of the alleged infringement, in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
Additionally, if we rely on consent for the processing of your personal information, you have the right to withdraw it at any time and free of charge. When you do so, this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your consent withdrawal.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
We maintain administrative and technical safeguards that are intended to appropriately protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse and any other unlawful form of processing of, the personal information in our possession. We employ security measures such as using firewalls to protect against intruders and testing for and protecting against network vulnerabilities.
How We Retain Your Personal Information
The precise periods for which we keep your personal information vary depending on the nature of the information and why we need it. Factors we consider in determining these periods include the minimum required retention period prescribed by law or recommended as best practice, the period during which a claim can be made with respect to an agreement or other matter, whether the personal information has been aggregated or pseudonymized, and other relevant criteria. For example, the period we keep your email address is connected to how long your Account is active, while the period for which we keep a support message is based on how long has passed since the last submission.
As Users may come back to us after an Account becomes inactive, we do not immediately delete your personal information. Instead, we keep your personal information for a reasonable period of time, so it will be there for you if you come back.
Please note that in the course of providing the Services, we collect and maintain aggregated, anonymized, or de-personalized information which we may retain indefinitely.
Personal information that you submit through the Services may be transferred to countries other than where you live, such as, for example, to our servers in the US. We also store personal information locally on the devices you use to access the Services.
Your personal information may be transferred to countries that do not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information.
If you use third-party plugins, extensions that enable services provided by third parties, or other third-party software, you may provide personal information to those third parties. These third parties may have their own terms and policies, and your use of their products will be governed by those terms and policies. We do not own or control these third parties and we are not liable for any transaction you may enter into with them, or for what they do.
