We collect Personal Information if you provide it directly to us via email or the Application. We may collect Personal Information when you send us messages, comments, questions or suggestions or if you participate in blogs, forums, message boards, chat rooms, profile pages and other services to which you are able to post information, if any, related to the Application (collectively, “Forums”).

Session and Usage Data. “Session and Usage Data” is information about your use of the Application, and includes, without limitation, connection and service-related data submitted to us through your use of the Application.

Aggregate Information. “Aggregate Information” is data we collect about a group or category of services or users from which individual user identities have been removed. In other words, information on how you use the Application may be collected and combined with information about how others use the Application, but no personally identifiable information will be included in the resulting Aggregate Information. Aggregate Information helps us understand trends in our users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor the Application.
