What information do we collect?
Personal Information That You Provide
We may ask you to provide us with certain information, including personal information, when you interact with the nosnitches Services.
Information that identifies you as a particular individual is referred to in this Policy as "Personal Information". This would include, without limitation, your full name, e-mail address, telephone number and street address.
We collect Personal Information through the nosnitches Services when you choose to provide us with such information, for example, when you register to become a Member. We may also collect Personal Information through a variety of other methods, including when you elect to contact us, submit Profile Content or otherwise interact with the nosnitches Services. We may aggregate certain items of your Personal Information (such as your age) to create anonymized statistical information about our User base (which we refer to as "Aggregated Information."). Once aggregated, the information in question can no longer be re-attached to you, so it is no longer Personal Information.
Certain features of the nosnitches Services are only accessible by Members who have registered with nosnitches and created a nosnitches account ("Account"). In order to do so, you must first complete a registration form that requests certain basic registration information from you, such as your full name, e-mail address, date of birth, and gender (collectively, "Registration Information").
The information in your Profile Content is grouped into two main categories – Restricted Information and Public Information.
"Restricted Information" refers to those portions of the Profile Content and Activity Notifications associated with your Profile to which you may elect to restrict public access by changing the Profile settings that nosnitches may make available to you from time-to-time here ("Profile Settings") or by changing other functionality specific settings on the nosnitches Services. These Profile Settings may permit you to create a "Restricted Profile" by choosing to enable certain (but not absolute) limitations on the availability of certain aspects of your Profile that are not required by nosnitches to be Public Information (as described below), certain associated Profile Content, and some of the notifications that nosnitches produces regarding your activities ("Activity Notifications"). Further, unless otherwise provided by nosnitches, all of your Profile Content and Activity Notifications will still be available to the people whose Profiles you allow to connect to you.
