We may collect personal information about you, meaning information that can uniquely identify you, from various sources, such as directly from you when you use the Service (for example, when you register for an account, access certain features or content, or purchase a subscription to the Service) and from other users acting on your behalf (for example, if your accountant provides such information to us).

A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a user’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the user’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. We may also use third-party analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) that collect information about use of the Service and user traffic. The information we may collect by automated means may include, without limitation:
- information about the devices you use to access the Service (such as the IP address and the type of the device, operating system, and web browser);
- dates, times, and duration of use of the Service (including whether you are a repeat or first time visitor); and
- information on actions taken when using the Service (such as page views and website navigation patterns).
