We use Firebase Google Analytics, which is a mobile app analytics service offered by Google. We also use Mixpanel, which is a product analytics service offered by Mixpanel, Inc. We use Firebase Google Analytics and Mixpanel to allow tracking technologies and remarketing services on the App through the use of first party cookies and third-party cookies, to, among other things, analyze and track users’ use of the App, determine the popularity of certain content, and better understand online activity.

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We are committed to ensuring your Personal Information is protected and will use industry-standard security measures, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, to do so. Personal Information may only be accessed by persons within our organization who require such access to provide you with the services indicated above. All personal information is stored in a password secured database inside a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
While we endeavour to keep your Personal Information safe, our collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information is not without risks. For example, our security safeguards may be compromised by viruses, hacking attempts, or physical break-ins. Consequently, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information. If your Personal Information was wrongfully accessed, there is a risk that you may suffer a harm, such as identity or credit card theft or financial loss.
Please be careful whenever sending Personal Information to us via email. Email is generally not a secure means of transferring information. We therefore cannot guarantee that this information will not be lost or used in a fraudulent manner and we encourage the use of email encryption or other encrypted services to communicate with us.
Please also be careful to keep your email password secure. In order to help keep your email password secure, we encourage you to never give out your email password, and to enable multi-factor authentication.

Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country where we do business or our service providers do business. We may transfer your Personal Information to countries other than your own country, including to the United States. These countries may have data protection rules that are different from your country. When transferring data across borders, we take measures to comply with applicable data protection laws related to such transfer. Officials (such as law enforcement or security authorities) in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Information. By using any of our Services, or by sending us any Personal Information, you consent to such transfers.
