Examples of personal information include name, email address, mailing address, mobile phone number, and credit card or other billing information.

“Automatically Collected” Information.
When you use the Service, we may automatically record certain information from your device by using various types of technology, including “clear gifs" or “web beacons.” This “automatically collected" information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that directly refer you to/ from the Service, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Service, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Service. We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users.
Third Party Web Beacons and Third Party Buttons.
When you use the Service, third parties may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities; those third parties may also collect personally identifiable information about your online activities across different websites over time. We may also implement third-party content or advertising on the Service that may use clear gifs or other forms of web beacons, which allow the third-party content provider to read and write cookies to your browser in connection with your viewing of the third party content on the Service. Additionally, we may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may allow third parties to collect information about you through such third parties’ browser cookies, even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties, and Testlio does not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
We may offer an invitation service to tell a friend, team member, or other individual about the Service or otherwise invite them to use the Service. If you choose to use our invitation service, we may ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as the individual’s email address. We may also offer you the opportunity to invite the individual via Third Party Sites such as Facebook or Twitter. We will automatically send the individual an email inviting him or her to try or use the Service. By providing email addresses of non-users, you represent that you have the right to do so and that such information may also be provided to any third-party service that you have designated to contact the non-user. We store and use this information to send this invitation, to register the individual if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our invitation service. The individual may contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database.
