By allowing us to access your social network's account, you understand that we will obtain and may share, without limitation, your name and profile picture, as well as the name and profile picture of your contacts.
When you register to, or use, the Services or any portion thereof, we may collect and record the information you provide to us, whether through the Services or through social networks or other third party services (the "Account Information"). While our application is in use, we keep track of your device’s geographic location so that we can connect you to other users based on your particular geographic location. We may also collect and store personal information about other people that is available to us through your social network login.
"Personal Information" or "[your] Information" means information about you that can be used to contact or identify you. The Personal Information types collected in accordance with the Services may vary depending on the activity and may, without limitation, include: your name; your username; your email address; your password; your address and zip code; as well as the Content you share on the site.
We also automatically track certain basic information about our members, such as IP addresses, browser type, ISPs, referring and exit pages, etc. This information helps up to figure out which parts of the site work best and how we can improve our service.
Like many websites, we use "cookies*" to collect information create an easier registration process, to let you enter your password less frequently and to generally make your use of the site smoother. Third party advertisers on the Services may also place or read cookies on your computer or mobile device. Cookies can be disabled at any time by changing your web browser's options to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, if you do not accept cookies or you delete those cookies, you can still use the site, but you’ll find the experience better if you keep them since you may not be able to use all portions or functionalities of the Service.
* A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk or your mobile device for record-keeping purposes. Cookies may be sent to a user’s computer or a mobile device when such user accesses or views a Service. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to personal information for purposes such as improving the quality of our Services, tailoring recommendations to interests, and making the Services easier to use.
"Non-personal information" is information that, when taken alone, cannot be used to identify or contact you. During your use of the Services we may collect non-personal information about your use of the Services. We may also invite you to share non-personal information about yourself which may, without limitation, include: Your age or date of birth; Your gender; and Any other information included in your application, social network or other online profile.
If non-personal information is collected for an activity that also requires personal information, we may combine your non-personal information with your personal information in an attempt to provide you with a better user experience, to improve the value and quality of the Services and to analyze how the Services are used.
In addition to information collected as described above, you may choose to share additional information about yourself through the Services. Any additional image or information you provide may be publicly displayed.
Please note that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable screens or pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.

We may aggregate the data, for example, to provide a way for advertisers to reach members in a particular location or who are interested in a particular make of car.
