What Information do We Collect?

Personally identifiable information is information that identifies or describes you, including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. Socialie may collect, store and use any personally identifiable or other information you choose to provide through the Services. For example, we collect personally identifiable information when you (a) register to become a member of Socialie, subscribe to our newsletters or other publications, participate in surveys, report issues, or request information or assistance through the Services or (b) upload content, draft social media posts, communicate with others or update your social media profile information using our Services. When you use our Services to integrate your social media accounts, we collect information about your social media accounts though our authentication process, including first and last name, social media handle, a URL to your social media profile, your follower count and your profile picture or avatar. We may also collect demographic data, including, without limitation, through our polls and surveys. All of the information that you provide on the Services is maintained by Socialie or service providers acting on behalf of Socialie. Users may invite their fans, such as social media followers and others, to create and upload content to the Services. If you are a fan who posts content in response to such invitations, we may also automatically collect information about your use of the Services as described below, and other information about your social media accounts such as social media handle, a URL to your social media profile, your follower account and your profile picture or avatar.

Cookies and Other Information Collection Tools
What are cookies? A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website or use an online service.
