3. INFORMATION FULLBLOOM MAY COLLECT.
FullBloom may collect both personally identifiable information as well as non-personally identifiable information when you visit or use the Services.
a. Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) means information that would allow a third party to identify or locate a particular person. PII includes, without limitation, your full name, email address, mailing address, mobile or other telephone number, birth date, and credit card number. FullBloom only collects PII if that information is voluntarily provided by you. This may happen in several ways:
i. User Accounts. In order to access and utilize certain products or services provided by the Services, you may be required to create a user account and to provide certain PII, such as your full name, an email address, a user name and/or a password, contact information, etc. You are under no obligation to provide this information to FullBloom. However, if you decide not to share this information, you may be unable to create an account on the Services and/or you may be unable to fully utilize all or some the Services.
ii. Financial Transactions. FullBloom may use third parties to provide credit card and other payment processing services for the Services. When you make any payment on or through the Services, you will be required to provide FullBloom and/or its authorized third party agents with financial information and related payment information. FullBloom and its third party agents may retain the details of transactions or payments you make on or through the Services. You authorize FullBloom and such third party payment processing services to store your payment history and payment account information (e.g. credit card account information) even after your account and/or your credit card has expired, to avoid interruptions in your service (e.g. subscriptions) and to facilitate easy payment for new service.
iii. Public Forums. FullBloom may provide areas on the Services where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others or upload content such as photographs and videos. Whenever you disclose personal information on publicly-viewable web pages, that information will be publicly available and may also appear on other websites and in publicly available search results. If you post your personal contact information, you may receive unsolicited messages. FullBloom encourages you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to the public posting of your personal information.
b. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”) means information that does not allow a third party to identify or locate a particular person. You can visit the Services to read information about the Services and the products and services offered without revealing any PII. However, during your visit to the Services, FullBloom may collect anonymous Non-PII such as the activity of your browser when you are viewing the Services; your site path during your visit to the Services; demographic data; the amount of time you spend on the Services and general information regarding your internet service provider and host. The Non-PII may be collected by FullBloom in several ways:
i. Logging Of Your Activities On The Services.

iv. Third Parties. FullBloom may institute information sharing programs with third parties. For instance, FullBloom may request that advertisers provide FullBloom with information regarding the ad response rate for the users of the Services that were served specific ads. This helps FullBloom improve the relevance of the advertisements that you are served. FullBloom may also receive information about your interaction with various ads on other sites on an anonymous basis in order to measure the effectiveness of those ads and determine their relevance to you.
v. Mobile & Location Information. If you use mobile-enabled services provided by FullBloom, such as any FullBloom mobile application made available by FullBloom, FullBloom may receive information about your use of the Services from your mobile device while you use FullBloom’s applications or Services.
