Cookies. A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular website. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

Like most companies, we use traffic log cookies and similar tools such as pixels, web beacons, and local storage to identify what information is being used and accessed by our users. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to our users. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with better Services, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

We may invite advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to you which may use cookies or similar tools placed by us or the third party.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer, but it may prevent you from taking full advantage of our Services.


Analytics. We use third party analytics and tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for our Services. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Services, including the website pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving our Services. We collect and use this analytics information in the aggregate with analytics information from other users so that we cannot reasonably determine the identity of any particular individual user.
Log File Information. Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access or visit a website page or application, and can be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or mobile device. We collect log file information to provide more accurate reporting and improvements to our Services.

Mobile Device Identifiers. To gather information about your browser patterns and how you use the Services, we use mobile device identifiers to help generate reports. When you use a mobile device like a laptop, tablet or phone to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more device identifiers which are small data files or structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by us. Some features of our Services may not function properly if the use or availability of the mobile device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
Metadata. Metadata is technical data that is associated with your user Content that can, among other things, describe how, when and by whom user Content was collected and how that Content is formatted so that your Content is more searchable by other users. You can add Metadata to your Content including but not limited to use of a hashtag to mark keywords when you post a photo, geotag to mark your location in connection to a photo, comments or other data. If you geotag your photo, your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo and will be searchable through a location or map feature if your photo is made public by you through your privacy settings. If you receive information about contests, offers, or other events or activities (“Events”) from other users through the Services, you may choose not to use the hashtag or geotag associated with the Events to keep your location untagged.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are responsible for all activities (whether by you or by others) that occur under your username, password or account.

You are not permitted to share your username and/or password with anyone. If we learn you have shared your username and/or password with any other individual or entity, we reserve the right to immediately terminate your access to our Services.
