In connection with use of the Site and the services provided in connection with the Site (such services and Site, collectively, the “Service”), we ask for and may collect a variety of information in the following ways.
Our servers may automatically record non-personally identifiable information (“Log Data”) from anyone who uses the Service or visits the Site. This Log Data may include the visitor’s IP address, browser type, operating system and language settings, referring domain, pages visited, visit duration and submitted search terms. This data is used to monitor Site usage, conduct Site administration and troubleshooting, and assist in improvements to the Service. We may vary and tailor the content the visitor receives in future visits to the Site based on such visitor’s preferences and activities as determined based upon such Log Data.
Registration and Account Data
If you register to use the Site, we ask for and store information you provide such as your email, first name, last name, username, billing address, title, gender, city, country, mobile phone, your Facebook handle, your Twitter handle, your Instagram handle, your LinkedIn handle, and a profile photo of yourself (collectively, Registration Data). You may also be presented with the option to register to use the Site using Facebook Connect, and if you choose to do so, your Facebook profile information will be imported to, and become a part of, your Registration Data. Only email, first name, last name, and title are required entries. Your profile photo, mobile phone number, Facebook handle, Twitter handle, Instagram handle, LinkedIn handle will only be displayed if you elect to do so through your Account Settings page. After you register to use the Site, you may set up your personal profile, interact with other users of the Site, and transmit information through various channels (“Account Data”). We collect and retain this information so that we can provide you the Service and offer personalized features, including varying the content you receive in future visits to the Site based on your preferences and activities and viewing interaction history. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time.
Although the Service may permit you to make purchases from third-party providers, such transactions are with those third-party providers directly. We may share certain of your information with such providers in order for you to engage with them and complete transactions. Although the Service may appear to collect payment card information in connection with transactions, SWAAY does not possess or store such information, with such information instead being sent directly to the vendor at issue and/or the vendor’s payment processor.
Combination of Log Data and Registration Data
Log Data may be combined with a user’s username, Registration Data and Account Data once a user has registered or subsequently logged into the Site. The combined data is used to provide, monitor and assist in improvements to the Service, and customize content and advertising displayed to the user on the Site and on other sites that participate in SWAAY’s advertising network. The Account Data, Registration Data, and combined data will not be shared with third parties except in the case of third party service providers and legal processes, as noted below.
SWAAY does not sell any user personal information to third parties. To submit a data access or data deletion request, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that these requests apply only to information that SWAAY holds as a “controller.”
Information Collected on Behalf of Advertisers and Publishers
Non-personally identifiable information that we collect may be used to provide reports to advertisers and publishers who participate in SWAAY’s advertising network, to schedule, deliver and optimize advertisements, and to help SWAAY display and customize content to the interests or preferences of Site visitors and to visitors of the publisher sites who participate in SWAAY’s advertising network.
Information Collected From Advertisers and Publishers
We may collect non-personally identifiable and personally identifiable information from advertisers and publishers who participate in SWAAY’s advertising network. Such information may be used for internal analysis in order to perform and improve the Service and associated technologies, and to operate and improve the Site. Publisher and advertiser registration information may be used by SWAAY to provide customer support to the applicable advertiser or publisher, and to send to such party account-related information, including invoices, payments, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support, administrative and promotional messages.
We may share aggregate information with advertisers, publishers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties in a manner that does not identify any particular advertiser, publisher or end user.

Third Party Service Providers
SWAAY uses reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard personally identifying information in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification.
