Our Services and Site are not directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years of age, and no part of our Site or Services is designed to attract people under 13 years of age. If we later learn that a user is under 13 years of age, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the Site and the Services.
How We Collect Information.
In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Services to you and helps us learn more about the use of the Site and/or Services. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily if you elect to register an account with us and in the course of your use of the Site and/or Services. To use certain features of our Services, we may require you to create an “Account”. If you are a “Scout”, or a shopper, you will be required to submit your name, email address, zip code and a password to create an Account. If you are a “Merchant”, or shop owner who will be making listings, you will be required to submit your name, email address, and phone number, as well as the name, address (including city, state, and zip code), and hours of your shop to create an Account. You can choose not to register an Account or provide us with certain information, but this may limit the features of the Site or Services you are able to use.
When you communicate with us by sending us an email, we will collect and store any information that is contained in your communications with us.
We collect the following types of Anonymous Information:
Information Collected by Our Servers. To make our Site and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including but not limited to your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit, clickstream data and referring/exit pages. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site and Services, track users’ movements around the Site and Services, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Site and Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site and Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.
Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.

We may collect information about the computer or device you use to access our Services, including the hardware model, operating system and version, MAC address, unique device identifier, phone number, and mobile network information.
