What is Personal Information?
Personal information is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as a name, address, telephone number, email address, or other account number, and information about that individual’s activities when directly linked to that person, such as information about his or her use of the WolffBehr Service. Personal information also includes demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic location and preferences when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies you. Personal information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and our users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor the WolffBehr Service.

For example, we collect personal information when you: (1) register and set up an account, (2) send an invitation, (3) ask others for recommendations or comments or (4) contact us by email or otherwise for any reason. When you visit the WolffBehr Service, some information is also automatically collected, such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your mobile device id, your computer’s operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring website, and the time and date of your visit and purchases. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above.
