2 COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

Registration Information may include, for example, name, email address, gender, zip code and birthday.
“Public Information and Posts” consist of comments or content that you post to the Company Services and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include information such as a name, user name, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture. Public Information and Posts are always public, which means they are available to everyone and may be displayed in search results on external search engines.
