We collect Personal Data for the following purposes:
We use information about you to provide the Services to you, including registering you for the Services, processing transactions with you, authenticating you when you log in, providing customer support, and operating and maintaining the Services.
We use your contact information to communicate with you about the Services, respond to your customer support questions and requests, and provide you notices regarding the Services (including notices about your account, product update announcements, security alerts, administrative notifications, and the like).
In connection with providing you with customer support, we may also use the information we automatically collect and information that you provide to us and consent for us to view and utilize as part of a support request so that we can respond to your request, analyze information related to your support request, and to repair or improve the Services.
We may also provide tailored communications based on your interactions with the Services. For example, specific actions you take may trigger a third-party app suggestion, or we may communicate with you as you begin using the Services to assist you as you learn to be proficient in using the Services.
These communications are fundamental to the Services, and in most cases, you cannot opt out of them. If an opt-out is available, you will find information about how to opt-out in the communication or your account settings.
