What Information Do We Collect?
Member Information: FLI collects certain information you provide to us when using the Service. When you create an account, we collect certain personal information, such as your name, picture, email address and phone number. We will also collect your login credentials to your social network accounts, such as Facebook and Gmail, when connecting those accounts with the Service.
If you allow the Service to use your location/GPS coordinates (or other identifiers) by actively enabling this option, we will automatically collect that information in order to optimize the capabilities of the Service and your user experience. You can enable or disable location services at any time through your mobile device settings.
Clear GIFs: We use electronic images known as "clear GIFs" -- sometimes called "transparent GIFs", "Web bugs", "pixel tags" or "beacons" -- that allow us to track general user traffic patterns. FLI also automatically receives and records information from our servers and from your browser, including your IP address, the time, and information about the page you requested. This information is included in Clickstream Data (defined as the information that FLI collects through cookies, log files, beacons and clear GIFs).
Supplementary Information: FLI may supplement Member Details with publicly available information. For example, if a Member indicates she lives in X zip code, we may obtain information giving representative geographic information about X zip code. This information is called "Supplementary Information".

What Information Do We Disclose to Third Parties?
Disclosure of Anonymous, Aggregated Information We aggregate user information, including Clickstream Data, and disclose such information in an aggregate, non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for marketing, promotional, and other purposes. FLI also discloses aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to prospective customers and partners, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes. We may provide summary reports to potential advertisers and marketing partners, based on our analysis of Clickstream Data. The type of information included in a summary report is "3,000 people looked at your information this week." This aggregated information is anonymous and does not disclose to third parties any Member Details about the individual users who viewed content.
