This Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the flinto.homes Terms of Use (available at www.flinto.homes/flint/legal). By using the Platform, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information as described in this Policy. 1. Information that we collect on the platform: (a) User-Provided Information: When you use the Platform, we may collect information about you or you may provide information about you, and we may link that information to other information about you. You may provide information to us on the Platform in a variety of ways. For example, you provide us with information when you register for an account (we collect your email address and date of birth and allow you to create a username and password), subscribe to our newsletters, use the Platform, make a purchase on the Platform, or send us customer service inquiries. (b) Cookies and automatically collected information: When you use the Platform, we may send one or more cookies - small text files containing a series of alphanumeric characters - to your device. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and can be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Platform. Please refer to your web browser's help file to learn how to change your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete or do not accept cookies from the Platform, you may not be able to use the full features of the Platform. We may also use third party cookies on our Platform.

We may also automatically record certain information from your device using various types of technologies, including "clear gifs" or "web beacons". This automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, the web browser and/or device type, the web pages or websites you visit immediately before or after using the Platform, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Platform, and the dates and times you visit, access or use the Platform. We may also use these technologies to collect information about your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is collected from all users and may be linked to other information about you. (c) Information Disclosed While Using the Platform: While using the Platform, including participating in various "rooms" made available to users of the virtual reality component of our Platform, you may disclose information about you to us and to other users of the Platform.
