Information We Collect
We collect information from and about you, including personal information and information about your use of the Site, the Application, and our Services. Specifically, we collect information: (1) directly from you, such as when you register to use our Site, request our newsletter, or participate in contests, sweepstakes, or other offers; (2) from third parties, such as when you log in through a social networking site or our Refer a Friend program; and (3) automatically, as you move through our Site and our Application, such as Site usage, browser types, IP addresses or device IDs, and other data, as discussed below.
Information We Collect Directly From You. We request information from you when you register for an account for our Site (our legacy “gagnsta.com Core” members), request our newsletter, participate in our contests, sweepstakes, and other promotions, and contact us. Depending upon the particular activity, we may request the following information from you: your name, email address, zip code, gender, age range, income range, username, password, and, for gagnsta.com Core members, credit card information.
Information We Collect About You From Third Parties.
Refer a Friend. The Site offers an “email a friend about this story” feature, allowing Site visitors to send email to friends to inform them about an article that might be of interest. For this feature to function, we ask for email addresses for the recipient (so we know who to mail the message to) and from the sender (so we can tell the recipient who sent the email). We do not store or save these addresses and neither you nor your friend will receive email or other communications from gagnsta.com or its partners as a result of having used this feature. While this tool should not be used to send mass “spam” mailings, gagnsta.com has no control over how our visitors use it, and any email sent through it originates with, and is the responsibility of, the sender, not gagnsta.com.
