We collect PII to the extent we believe it is reasonably necessary to facilitate the transactions between our Customers and Sellers as described in the Information Use section below.

When you visit the Site we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information, which is information that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (such as age or gender) or usage information (such as the browser, device, or operating system you are using; the url that referred you to the Site; and the areas of the Site you visit). See the Cookies and Advertising section below for additional details. The information we collect automatically may be only statistical data and may not include personal information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or supplement the information we collect with information from other sources to assist us in evaluating and improving our Site and the Services. This helps us to improve the Site and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to estimate our audience size and usage patterns, store information about your preferences, and recognize you when you return to our Site.

You may correct, amend, or update your PII by editing your profile on the Site or contacting us at contactus@upscribbr.com or 612-568-5535.
