Here are some examples of the types of information Thoughtful Pinch may collect (collectively “Personal Information”):
Personal Data and Identifying Information for registration (e.g. name, email address, location);
The geographical area in which you use your computer or mobile device, as indicated by and IP address or similar identifier;

Access to information stored on your mobile device, including but not limited to access to your camera, files, photograph and any other digital content stored on you mobile device; and
Any content that you provide or 3rd party data which may be synced with your account.
Some information (which may be deemed personal information in some jurisdictions) may be automatically received and stored as non-identifiable personal information. Such information is collected passively using various technologies and cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Example of this non-personal information includes the type of internet browser or mobile device you used, any Platform from which you have come to the Services, your operating system location data (which is anonymous), your IP address, cookie ID, pages accessed and clickstream, additional session information and timestamps. We may store such non-personal information ourselves or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents, or service providers. The Services may use such non-personal information to assist us in providing effective Services and to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Most web and mobile device browsers automatically accept cookies. You may change or adjust your settings to prevent this if you wish. Please note, however, that by blocking or deleting cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Services. If you have questions about how to change or adjust your settings please direct those inquiries to the maker of your device or service provider.
Use of Information
The information we collect allows us to provide the Services as described in the Terms of Service. We collect information from you so that we can provide the transfers to and from your User Account that you identify, and request using the Site and provide information that you request from us. We may send you newsletters or other communications, and we may contact you regarding Services we provide or that you request. We may provide information to third party service providers, subsidiaries, affiliates, or other partners, that will help us or allow us to process the Services that you request.
These service providers will have access to your personal information in order to provide these Services, but when this occurs we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the Services. We use demographic information to better understand our customers and improve our products and Services.
We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, Services, content, and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate Services. For example, we may use date of birth to verify the age of account holders to ensure they are of legal age to use the Services we provide.
From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about transaction or transfers, and about changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Thoughtful Pinch, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Thoughtful Pinch’s products, Services, and customer communications.
We may also share or disclose your personal information with our affiliates and subsidiaries.

Some Platforms may belong to ad networks that use your browsing history across Platforms to choose which ads to display on their sites; the displayed ads may include advertising for Thoughtful Pinch. Platforms may also offer their own opt-out methods for interest-based advertising.
In addition to the sharing described elsewhere in this Policy, we may share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of the Company in a de-identified format when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information. Sensitive personal information is a particular category of personal information relating to racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs or sexuality.
We will share personal information with third party companies, organizations, or individuals outside of the Company if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
Meet any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, legal process, or enforceable governmental request.
Enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.
Protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of Thoughtful Pinch, our users, customers or the public as required or permitted by law.
Use of Other Information
We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it,
We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where Thoughtful Pinch accessed from so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, Services, and advertising.
We may collect and store details of how you use our Services and/or Content, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our Services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our Services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
With your explicit consent, we may collect data about how you use your device, the applications and Platform in order to help our developers improve the apps and Platform.
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

At times Thoughtful Pinch may make personal information available to strategic partners that work with Thoughtful Pinch to provide products, Services, or Content, or that help Thoughtful Pinch market to customers or Users. Personal information will only be shared by Thoughtful Pinch to provide or improve our products, Services, Content, and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes nor will it in any event be sold to any third party.
Thoughtful Pinch shares personal information with companies who provide Services such as information processing, payment processing, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing user data, providing user service, assessing your interest in our products and Services, and conducting User research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Thoughtful Pinch operates.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Thoughtful Pinch to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms of Service or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
Thoughtful Pinch is not in the business of selling or renting your information. Your information will only be shared when necessary to provide Services, enforce the Terms of Service, as otherwise required by law, or in cases where you have provided your explicit consent.
Retention of Personal Information
Protecting Your Information
Your security and the security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information on our Platform, we encrypt the transmission of that information using HTTPS. We and our custodian also use third-party ID verification to ensure our users’ true identities are validated.
We take commercially reasonable technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Unfortunately, however, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases or the security of the databases of our affiliates or third-parties which we may share information with, nor can guarantee that information stored with us will not be stolen while being transmitted over the internet. Specifically, email sent to us may not be secure, and you should be careful when determining what information, you wish to communicate via email. If you have questions about security on our Platform please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
