INFORMATION LIKE.FM COLLECTS
Like.fm collects two types of data about users: (1) information that you or others voluntarily submit to us (described below under “User-Supplied Information”) and (2) technical data automatically collected from all visitors to the Like.fm Service (described below under “Automatically Collected Data”).
- User-Supplied Information:
- In using the Like.fm Service, for example when you register with us, or if you send us an email, you will provide Like.fm with data generally called “personally identifiable” information. If you choose to provide such information, you are giving Like.fm permission to use and store that information consistent with this policy. Additionally, please know that when you register or sign in to the Like.fm Service, you are not anonymous to us.
Facebook Connect: You may connect your Like.fm account with your Facebook account. In order to do so, you will need to provide us with access to the information on your Facebook account through Facebook Connect. By doing so, you understand and authorize us to use all the information exposed to us through Facebook Connect pursuant to this Privacy Notice, including your status updates, photos, videos, name, email address and information regarding your friends on Facebook. You should check your Facebook settings to manage the information sent to third parties through Facebook Connect.
- Automatically Collected Data:
- The Like.fm Service operating on a website automatically logs non-personally identifiable information such as Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), a unique user ID, the content and pages that you access on the Like.fm Service and the dates and times that you visit the Like.fm Service. In addition, if you come to the Like.fm Service via a link from another site, we may also track the source of that link.
- Information we Obtain from Other Sources.
- We may collect information about you from other sources, including from partners, and from commercially available sources (such as data aggregators and public databases). The following are examples of information we may collect from other sources:
• Data you authorize us to access through your use of Facebook Connect.
In general, the types and amount of personally identifiable information we collect vary depending on the activity. Like.fm endeavors to limit the collection of personally identifiable information to information we believe is minimally necessary to achieve our stated collection purposes.
