Personal Information</b></i></dt> <dt>Personal information may include, but is not limited to, your name, e-mail address, physical mailing address, telephone number, date of birth, and any personal photo or image representation. We will collect, use and disclose personal information only as described in this Privacy Policy.<br><br><i>For users in the EEA, the legal basis for collection of this information is to provide you with the Services.</i><br><br>Please note that some non-personal information would be considered a part of your personal information if it were combined with other information in a way that enables you to be identified, but the same information is considered non-personal information when taken alone or combined only with other non-personal information.</dt></dl> <dl><dt><i><b>B.

The non-personal information collected may include information related to your mobile device or computer system, including mobile device type, IP address, unique mobile device ID or other device identifiers, Media Access Control (MAC) address, telephone number of mobile device, country of registration (together, “<b>Device Information</b>”).
