How We Collect Personal Information
We collect your personal information through various means, including directly from you, from service providers or other external parties, and automatically through your use of our Services. In some instances, you may be able to choose what information to provide, but sometimes we require certain information from you to use features of our Services.
Information You Provide Directly to Us
In providing the Service, we may ask that you provide certain information about yourself or the participant. The exact information we need to collect will depend on the purpose and type of service requested. For example, you may choose to provide us with information about you or a participant to request information from us, make full use of the Services, or enroll in an activity; or when you sign up to create an account, we may ask for your and/or the participant’s name, phone number, email address, date of birth, and gender identity. If you choose not to provide certain information, we may not be able to provide requested services.
Information We Collect from Others
Our service providers may collect personal information on our behalf while providing their services to us. We also may obtain your personal information from our parent, subsidiary, and affiliate companies. In some circumstances, we obtain personal information about you from third parties, such as advertising networks, franchisees, and data brokers. To understand your rights and choices regarding personal information collected by other companies, please consult the privacy policies of the businesses that you interact with.
Information We Automatically Collect from You
In addition to the information you provide to us, we and our service providers collect information automatically when you use our Services. This information allows us to understand how you’ve used the Services, and other actions you have taken in connection with your use of the Services. Examples of the types of personal information that may be collected automatically include:
Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Cookies vary in how long they last. “Session cookies” terminate shortly after you terminate your internet session. “Persistent cookies” are stored on your device until a set expiration date. We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on our website.
Our Services collect information about you in order to target advertisements to you when you browse the internet or use social media. For example, we use the Facebook Pixel and Google Ads to provide you relevant targeted advertisements on other websites. You may visit Facebook’s and Google’s websites to learn more about each platform’s advertising practices and options you may have to manage how they collect and use your personal information. You can manage advertising preferences for some of the external parties we work with to serve advertising across the internet by utilizing the choices at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. Additional options for opting-out of interest-based advertising can be found at https://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1.

Social Features and Our Services
Certain features on our Services permit interactions that you initiate between our Services and certain third-party services, such as third-party social networks (“Social Features”). Examples of Social Features include: enabling you to send content such as contacts and photos between our Services and a third-party service; “liking” or “sharing” our content; logging into our Services using your third-party service account; and otherwise connecting our Services to a third-party service (e.g., to pull or push information to or from our services). If you use Social Features, information you post or provide access to may be publicly displayed on our services or by the third-party service that you use. Similarly, if you post information on a third-party service that references us (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with us or our affiliates in a tweet or status update), your post may be used on or in connection with our Services or otherwise by us and/or our affiliates. Also, both we and the third party may have access to certain information about you, and your use of our Services and any third-party service.

How We Protect the Security of Personal Information
We use appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security that is reasonable and appropriate to the risk of the personal information we hold.
