Put simply, collected data helps us control access to the platform, charge for services, protect the security of our platform, communicate with our users, and improve the platform. Some of the data is automatically collected to help detect fraudulent activity too. Personal data collected with third-party service providers helps enhance the user experience and is sometimes required to use those third-party services.
We also use personal data to tailor site preferences, ensure the site and application are secure, and help us develop new services. We may also have to use personal data when legal issues arise.

We may also use personal data to provide services such as customer support to our users.
