To activate the Service as a Individual User you do not need to submit any Personal Information other than your name, email address, gender, date-of-birth (DOB), and location. To activate the Service as a Business User you will need to provide your name, email address, and business information (address, city, state, phone number, etc.).

We track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from our servers and are stored on the user’s computer hard drive. Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables us to collect Non-Personal information about that user and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilizing our services, both on an individual and aggregate basis.
The Company may use both persistent and session cookies; persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser.
