When we say “we”, “our”, or “us,” we are referring to thinkspot Inc.
What kinds of information do we collect?
In order for thinkspot to exist, we must process information about you. If we are able to identify or locate you using the information we collect, we call that “Personal Information.” Examples of Personal Information include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and IP address. Some information we collect we cannot use to identify or locate you. Examples of this non-personally identifiable information include aggregated information about traffic and activity on the thinkspot (such as pages clicked, pages viewed, and browser types).
The categories of information we collect depend on how you use thinkspot:
Information and content you provide. We collect the content, communications, and other information you provide when you use thinkspot, including when you sign up for an account, create or share content, and message or communicate with others. This can include information in or about the content you provide (like metadata), such as the location of a photo or the date a file was created. If you consider information or content particularly sensitive and do not want us to collect it, do not share it with us on thinkspot.
Information about your transactions on thinkspot. If you donate or purchase a product on thinkspot, we collect information about that purchase or transaction. This includes account authentication information and your billing and shipping details. We use a third party to process your payments for us, so we do not ourselves collect, process, or store your payment card details.
Information others provide about you. We may collect information about you that other people include in their content, communications, and other information provided through thinkspot.
Information we collect from third parties. We may collect information about you from third parties, such as social media networks. For example, if you connect to thinkspot through an account you have on a third party social media network, we may collect information about your account on that network, such as your name, profile picture, and friend list. The information that we obtain from third party social media networks will depend on your privacy settings on those networks.
Information about your device. We collect information from about the computers, phones, and other devices that you use to access thinkspot. We may also combine this information across different devices you use. Information we obtain about your devices includes, for example: device identifiers (such as IP address and device ID); attributes (such as operating system and software version); network and connections (such as mobile operator and internet service provider); and cookie data (such as cookie ID and settings).
Information about your location. We may collect information about your location if you share your location through your device or geotag your content, communications, or any other information you provide.
Information about your use of thinkspot. We collect information about how you use thinkspot, such as the types of content you view, the features you use, the actions you take, the people or account you interact with, and the time, frequency, and duration of your activities.

Do Not Track Signals
Some web browsers have “Do Not Track” or similar features that allow you to tell each website you visit that you do not want your activities on that website tracked. At present, thinkspot does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals and consequently, the Website will continue to collect information about you even if your browser’s “Do Not Track” feature is activated.
Protecting your Personal Information is important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of the Personal Information you transmit to us through the Website.
