1.1 What is Personal Information
Personal Information means any information or data, which we have collected from you, or received from a third party, by which we can identify you, whether by itself or in conjunction with information in our possession or likely to come into our possession. This can be an identifier, for example your name, an identification number, location data, email address, or other factors of your identity, for example physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social factors.
1.2 Non-Personal Information
Non-Personal Information is any information that is not Personal Information.
1.3 Public Information
You may choose to disclose Personal or Non-Personal Information in the course of using our Websites and Service, such as, without limitation creating your own content for our Service, or any communication by you or by other users in our Forums, regarding information that you have freely chosen to disclose to these users. By submitting Public Information with your use of our Websites or Service, you acknowledge and agree that this Public Information becomes part of the public domain. In the event that you have proprietary rights to this Public Information, Section 3.3 of our Terms of Service applies to this Public Information.
Our Website may contain advertising or services which link to other websites such as without limitation Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. The fact that we link to a third party website is not an endorsement, authorization, or representation of our affiliation with that third party website or the operator of that third party website. If you click on a link to a third party site, including on an advertisement, you will leave our Websites and Service. Because we cannot control the activities of third parties, we cannot accept responsibility for any use of your Personal Information by such third parties, and we cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy and security practices as us.
We may receive some of the information that you submit to any third party website that you access from an advertisement contained on our Websites. Both we and the owner or operator of that third party website will be the data controller in respect of any such information.
1.5 How we protect your rights
The Personal Information that you provide to us directly or indirectly through integrated third party services, such as without limitation when you use your email or social media account to register with our Service, or when you embed or use links and content from third party services in our Service, will be collected and processed by us or by third party data processors appointed by us to undertake processing on our behalf.
Any Personal Information that we transfer to and/ or share with third parties is protected by our contract with these third party services, all of which implement the EU model clauses for data protection and, if these third party services are located within a country, state or region outside of the EU, certify adequate compliance with the EU data protection standards, such as, without limitation, the EU-US or EU-Swiss Data Privacy Shield.
Your Personal Information will be stored on servers which may be owned by third parties, that may be located outside of the EU, such as Amazon Web Services, Inc. and Google, Inc. and/or their respective affiliates all of which are for purposes of data protection under contractual control by us.

Analytic and Metric Tools
We may also use third party analytic metric tools and other analytics technologies. We will use this technology to deliver content specific to your interest and to monitor the usage of our Websites.
