1. Collection and Use of Personal Information

We will only collect personal information, such as your name, telephone number or email address, when it is voluntarily submitted to us on the Site. We will use this information to comply with your request for information or as otherwise disclosed to you when you submit your information. From time to time, we may refer to that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our services. We may use that information to contact you.

In the U.S., we may ask for a government issued ID in limited circumstances including when setting up the service, verification of who you are or as required by law. We will not otherwise transfer the personal information you provide on the Site to any third party unless otherwise disclosed to you. The followinging are some examples of personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

  • We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. For example, we may use date of birth to determine the age of the CLF account.

  • From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with CLF, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.

We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

  • We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, location, and the time zone where our service is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.

  • We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non‑personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

  • We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services.
