We collect information in a few different ways
1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it.
When you sign up for or use SisterSoulcare you voluntarily share certain information including your name, email address, phone number, photos, Pins, comments, and any other information you give us. You can also choose to share your precise location using your device settings or through photos. We will still use your IP address, which is used to approximate your location, even if you don't choose to share your precise location. You will also have the option to share other information about yourself such as your gender, age and preferred language.
If you connect your Facebook, Google(opens in a new window) or other third-party accounts to Sister Soulcare, we use information from those accounts (such as your friends or contacts) to improve your Pinterest experience. This is dependent on the privacy policies or settings for those accounts.
2. We also get technical information when you use Sisters Soulcare site
When you use a website, mobile application or other internet service, certain internet and electronic network activity information gets created and logged automatically. This is also true when you use Sisters Soulcare. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
Log data. When you use Sisters Soulcare, our servers record information (“log data”), including information that your browser automatically sends whenever you visit a website, or that your mobile app automatically sends when you’re using it. This log data includes your Internet Protocol address (which we use to infer your approximate location), the address of and activity on websites you visit that incorporate Sisters Soulcare features (like the “Save” button—more details below), searches, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Pinterest, cookie data and device data. You can learn more about the log data we collect here.
Device information. In addition to log data, we collect information about the device you’re using Sisters Soulcare on, including the type of device, operating system, settings, unique device identifiers and crash data that helps us understand when something breaks.
Clickstream data and inferences. When you’re on Sisters Soulcare , we use your activity—such as which Pins you click on, boards you create, and any text that you add in a comment or description—along with information you provided when you first signed up and information from our partners and advertisers to make inferences about you and your preferences. For example, if you create a board about travel, we may infer you are a travel enthusiast. We may also infer information about your education or professional experience based on your activity when you link your account to accounts you have with third parties like Facebook or Google.
3. Our partners and advertisers share information with us
We also get information about you and your activity outside Pinterest from our affiliates, advertisers, partners and other third parties we work with. For example:
Some websites or apps use Pinterest features such as our “Save” button, or you may install our “Save” button for your browser. If so, we collect log data from those sites or apps. You can learn more about these features at our Help Center.
Online advertisers or third parties share information with us to measure, report on or improve the performance of ads on Sisters Soulcare, or to figure out what kinds of ads to show you on or off of Pinterest. This includes information about your visits to an advertiser's site or purchases you made from them, or information about your interests from a third-party service, which we might use to help show you ads.
