When you use the Services we collect or receive your personal information in the following ways:

and your name, postal address, billing address, telephone number and payment information. You may also choose to provide other personal information, such as your birthday. You may review, edit and, in certain circumstances, delete this information
through your account settings.
- Automated information:We automatically receive and record information from your browser or your mobile device when you use the Services, such as your IP address or unique device identifier, cookies and data about which pages you visit, so
we may operate and provide the Services. This information is stored in log files and is collected automatically. We may combine this information with other information that we or those we work with collect about you. This information is used to
prevent fraud and to keep the Services secure, to analyse and understand how the Services work, and to provide advertising and a more personalised experience for you. We may also automatically collect device-specific information when you use the
Services. This information may include information such as the hardware model, operating system information, App version, App usage, browser information, IP address, and device identifiers. For more information about cookies and similar technologies,

performance monitoring, to localise content and (using non-precise location information) for marketing purposes. Certain non-precise location services, such as for security and localization of policies based on your IP or profile address, are critical
for the Services to function.

information such as how often you use the App, what happens within the App, aggregated usage, performance data, app errors and debugging information, and where the App was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics
software to any personal information that you submit within the App.
- Information from third parties:You may choose to connect to the Services or register a Fabletics account using a third party application, such as Facebook. We may receive information from those connected third party applications. We may
also collect public information in order to connect with you. We may use that information in providing the Services to you. You may also choose to share some of your activity on the Services on certain social media networks connected to your
