If you do not agree to this Policy, then you may not use the Application or access the content or any services in the Application.

This Policy applies only to information collected on or through the Application. It does not apply to information collected or obtained by or through any other means (including, without limitation, information collected offline, in-person, over the telephone or by mail)

Before you submit any information on or through the Application, please carefully review this Policy.
