INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you interact with us or use our Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, including:
Non-Identifiable Data: When you utilize the Services, we may receive certain personally non-identifiable information about your use of the Services. Such information, which may be collected passively using various technologies, or via your use of the Services, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. We may store such information ourselves or it may be included in databases or on servers owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of users of our Services, the number of visitors to our Website, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, we may conduct research on our end user’s demographics, interests, responses, and behavior based on the Personal Data, test results and other information provided to us. We also may collect and use population data from use of the Services to improve our technology and its underlying algorithms. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregated data with our affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Our Services may rely on the Facebook Connect platform in order to provide both authentication and social networking features. When you initially login to the Services using your Facebook login and password, you are asked to grant us permission to access certain data from your Facebook account (the “Facebook Information”). We may use Facebook Information in order to provide the Services both to you and other users. We may share Facebook Information with users of the Services in order to provide certain features or functionality. The Facebook Information we collect and use is limited to that information you have explicitly authorized us to access through the Facebook Connect initial login, described above.

OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND OTHER INFORMATION
In addition to the foregoing, there are certain other circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, including as set forth below:
Legal Requirements: We may disclose your information when we have a good faith belief we are required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other legal mechanism. We may also disclose your information when we have a good faith belief that disclosure may prevent fraud and abuse of the Services or its users or protect our property rights.

If you have expressly agreed to participate in a research study with us or with a third party that incorporates your personal information collected by us, we also may disclose your information for the purpose of facilitating the research to which you have consented.
