If we associate non-identifiable information with information that identifies you, we will treat it as Personal Information.
We only collect Personal Information that is reasonably necessary to provide our Services to you and for the purposes set forth in this Policy. The information we collect can come from information you provide, information we collect through automated means, and information we collect from other sources.
