- Your phone and physical address

In addition, you may choose to publish information about your actions on Grokker on third party services such as social media accounts.
Like almost all web and mobile products, we automatically collect a variety of information when you use the Grokker Services:

- Web beacon A "web beacon," also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server. We also use pixel tags in our emails to customers to track effectiveness, response rates, and similar information about when our emails are read or forwarded.
- Device Information We may collect information about the device youre using Grokker on, including what type of device it is, what operating system youre using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data.
- Analytics We may also use third party applications and services, such as Google Analytics, to collect and analyze information about visitor traffic on our sites and mobile applications. We use this information to analyze and improve the Grokker Services. This information includes general usage information, and may include information such as the number and frequency of our visitors, which pages or features they have visited, which links they have clicked on, and the length of those visits.
We may ask you health-related questions in order to recommend videos, programs, and other content to you, and to help you track your progress.

Apple may choose to gather this data from other applications, your data input on iOS, and your wearables. For this or related information, please refer to www.apple.com.
You may be able to link certain third party accounts ("Third Party Accounts") to your Grokker account. To link your Third Party Account to Grokker, you must grant Grokker permission to send information to that service, according to that sites permission page (where you consent to link your Third Party Account) and your privacy settings for that Third Party Account. When you do this, we will receive information from the Third Party Account in accordance with your permissions.

The Grokker community is built on openness and sharing. Therefore your Grokker profile and actions that you take on Grokker are public, and visible to other Grokker users. If you link your Grokker account with external apps like Fitbit and Garmin, your activities reported from these devices may be published as an "I Did This" and visible to other Grokker users. If you choose to link your Grokker account with Third Party Services (such as Facebook), we will share information with that service in accordance with your permissions.
If you have Grokker through your employer, we share aggregate data about your use of the Services including, but not limited to average time spent, video views, and program sign ups to help them understand their usage of Grokker.
We may share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners or others in order to secure agreements or demonstrate the health of the business.
We may share information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or Grokker; or to detect, prevent, defend against or otherwise address abuse, fraud, security or legal issues.
You can access and update most of your personal information through your Grokker profile. You may also request access, updating and correction in your personal information by contacting us. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a password) to verify your identity before granting you access or allowing you to make any corrections or updates.

You can also choose to unlink your account. To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by the Third Party Service provider.
We may send you marketing emails. To unsubscribe from marketing emails, simply follow the opt out instructions in any such email, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on our opt out list.
