We may collect both personal and anonymous information. Personal information includes, but is not limited to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you such as your name, email address, home address, and phone number. For each campaign (generically referred to as a "Buycott") in which you participate, you may choose to create and store a short description, statement, photo or video, which will be viewed by anyone who is accessing that particular campaign, and any message board postings. We may also, from time to time, launch particular campaigns. In connection with such launch, we may ask for extended and special permissions from your Facebook account, which would require us to collect from you certain information including your Facebook login information. The permission requests include, but are not limited to, user email, create event, rsvp event, user events, user likes, user interests, and publish stream (for more on this topic, click here) .
In addition, we may ask for personal information that is specific to any other campaign we may launch in the future. By way of example, we may ask you to share the amount of money you have spent as part of a campaign. By supplying such information, you acknowledge that we have your affirmative consent and may use such information for promotional, marketing or any other such use that we consider appropriate. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to prevent any sensitive personal information from becoming publicly available, however, we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, or destruction of the information or images that you provide to us.
