We may also collect other information through the content you provide (like metadata), such as the location of a photo or the date a file was created. Our systems automatically process content and communications you and others provide to analyze context and what's in them for the purposes described in this Policy. If you communicate with other users on the Sites or provide content to the Sites, we will also store and process those communications and materials.
Information We Get From Others. We may get information about you from other sources to further customize your experience, like updating the Sites based upon your browser or device.

If you use our Products for purchases or other financial transactions (such as when you make a purchase in an app), we collect information about the purchase or transaction. This includes payment information, such as your credit or debit card number and other card information; other account and authentication information; and billing, shipping and contact details.
Information Automatically Collected. We automatically log information about you and your computer. For example, when visiting our Sites, we log IP address, date and time of access, location information, operating system information and information about your use of and actions on our Sites. While you use our Sites, we also collect information related to how you interact with us, such as your path through our Sites or any interactions you have in the Sites.

Finally, we may receive information from you, like a confirmation, when you open emails from us. This confirmation helps us make our communications with you more interesting and helps us improve communications.
Cookies. We may log information using "cookies." Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive by a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser or Sites) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your device until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Sites. This type of information is collected to make the Sites more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
We use the information we have (including your activity using our Products, such as the websites you visit and ads you see) to help advertisers and other partners measure the effectiveness and distribution of their ads and services, and understand the types of people who use their services and how people interact with their websites, apps, and services. We may also use the information we collect to more effectively respond to your service needs. Any data or information we collect will never be shared except under the circumstances discussed in this Policy.
Some of your interactions on the Sites may be public. These interactions are immediately viewable by other users of this Sites. If you add content or reviews to the Sites, this content may also be viewable by other users of this Sites.

We may share aggregate or anonymous data (data that has had personally identifying characteristics, like your name or address) with third parties for advertising purposes for our services, products and as part of providing our Products. For example, we provide advertisers with reports about the kinds of people seeing their ads and how their ads are performing, but we don't share information that personally identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us permission.
We may share personal information when we do a business deal, or negotiate a business deal, involving the sale or transfer of all or a part of our business or assets. These deals can include any merger, financing, acquisition, or bankruptcy transaction or proceeding.
