We may use your information in order to deliver a high quality, effective, and rewarding user experience. For example, we may use this information to provide our products and services to you, for our marketing purposes, to respond to your inquiries, and to improve our products and services. We only share personally identifiable information with third party partners where appropriate, such as Stripe for payment processing purposes. When information is shared with such third-party partners, the information is subject to the respective privacy policy(ies) of the partner(s) (for example, the privacy policy of Stripe can be found here). We may also be compelled to disclose information by law or by court order, in which case we must comply. 

We will not sell your information to third parties, for advertising purposes or otherwise.

Unless we receive a deletion request, we will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as is reasonably useful for operational purposes. For example, we may retain certain data as necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, for recordkeeping or other legitimate business purposes, or if required by law. We may also retain information which has been de-identified or aggregated such that it can no longer reasonably identify a particular individual. All retained personal information will remain subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
