Information We Collect and How We Use It
We collect certain information from You through your use of the Service, from figuring out basic stuff like which language You speak, to more complex things like which advertisements might be most useful to You, the type of content You upload or view, and the people You communicate with through the Service.
We use the information We collect from the Service to provide, maintain, protect, and improve it, to develop new services, and to protect our Users. We also use this information to offer tailored content, such as suggestions for other content You may be interested in and providing more relevant advertisements.
When You contact TheCGBros, a record of the communication may be kept to help solve any issues You might be facing. We may use Your email address to inform You about our services, such as letting You know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We want You to be comfortable using the Service so We have described in detail below what information We collect and how it is used.
Information You Provide to Us:
When You use the Service, limited information is collected about You based on what You choose to allow TheCGBros to track. For example, many of our services require You to sign up for an account on TheCGBros Platform. When You do, We may ask for personal information, such as your name, email address, interests and skills to set up Your account profile.
We may use the name You provide for Your profile with TheCGBros across all of the services We offer that require an account with TheCGBros. If You choose to upload content such as comments or other information that identifies You, onto TheCGBros Platform, We may show them on Your publicly visible profile information, such as Your name.
If You have an account with TheCGBros, We may display Your name and actions You take on TheCGBros Platform or on third-party applications connected to Your account (such as reviews You write and comments You post on the Service). We will respect the choices You make to limit sharing or visibility settings in Your account with TheCGBros. You are always in control of the privacy settings of your account profile. Note that your account profile is set by default to private.
When You use the Service or view content provided by Us, We automatically collect and store certain information on our servers. This includes information such as:
details of how You used our Service;
telephone information like your phone number; or
internet protocol address (or “IPA”).
When You use the Service, We may collect and process information about Your actual location using various technologies, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors.
We may need to send You announcements and account-related messages. These are considered part of the Service, and You are not able to opt-out of receiving these messages.
Information Learned from Your Device:
We collect device-specific information (such as Your hardware model, operating system version, and mobile network information including phone number). TheCGBros may associate Your device or phone number with Your account with TheCGBros.
TheCGBros can record the places You visited and how long you stayed, by running in the background (or foreground), whenever Your mobile device is turned ON, even if You switch to another website, browser application, or sleep Your device.
We use location and time data from all Users of the Service to create anonymous, aggregate data, for purposes including but not limited to identifying trends, determining popular online or digital venues, and improving the TheCGBros experience.
Information Learned From Your Use of the Service:
We collect information about how You use the Service. This information includes general usage statistics, including but not limited to information such as how often You use the Service, or when You perform certain actions TheCGBros finds interesting. We use this information in aggregate form to improve and enhance the experience of using the Service.

How We Share Your Information with Others
We will not share the personal information We have collected from You, except as described below:
● when You give us Your consent to do so, for example, when We tell You that the information You provide will be shared in some way and You provide us that information;
● when We believe We are authorized or legally required to do so or that doing so is necessary or appropriate to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request; enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations; detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of TheCGBros, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
● in connection with any merger, transfer or sale of company assets, financing, acquisition, or similar transaction or circumstance; or
● With Your Consent: We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of TheCGBros when We have Your consent to do so. Note that uploading content to the Service constitutes Your express consent for that information to be shared.
Do Not Track
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference Users can set if they do not want web services to collect information about their online activity. However, there is currently no universal standard for sending and receiving DNT signals. Due to this lack of universal standard, it would be impossible for us to promise that We comply with all known and unknown DNT standards.
Therefore, TheCGBros does not in any way monitor or respond to DNT signals or other mechanisms that provide a choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about activities over time and across different websites or online services.
If a universal standard for DNT becomes available, We may revisit our DNT Policy.
Sharing Content with Third Party Services
Accessing Your Information
You can view the location and time data collected from within TheCGBros. Where We can provide information access and correction, We will do so at no additional cost, except where it would require a disproportionate effort.
If You would like TheCGBros to delete Your personal information that has been collected, please contact us with Your request. At our sole discretion, We may take the necessary steps to delete Your information if We find that doing is so is practical.
When updating Your personal information, We may ask You to verify Your identity before We can act on Your request. Some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records and as otherwise required by law.
How We Protect Your Information
Remember that when You share information publicly, it may be indexed by search engines. Although our services provide You with different options on sharing and removing Your content, be aware that once any content is shared on the Internet, it may be extremely difficult to remove it completely or permanently.
That being said, We employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect Your information from unauthorized access. However, despite those efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other types of misuse.
