“Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact You, including, for example, Your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about You that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to Your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below.

Information You Provide To Us
We may collect Personal Data from You, such as Your first and last name, location, phone number, gender, e-mail and mailing addresses, professional title, company name, employment history, education history, personal summary, and password when You create an account to log in to Our network (“Account”).

We retain information on Your behalf, such as files and messages that You store using Your Account.

If You provide Us feedback or contact us via email, We will collect Your name and email address, as well as any other content included in the email, in order to send You a reply.

When You post content (text, images, photographs, messages, comments or any other kind of content that is not Your e-mail address) on Our Site, the information contained in Your posting will be stored on Our servers and other users will be able to see it, along with Your profile photo and any other information that You choose to make public on Your public profile page (“Profile”). The information that You provide in Your Profile will be visible to others, including anonymous visitors who are not users of Our Service.

When You post messages on the message boards of Our Site, the information contained in Your posting will be stored on Our servers and other users will be able to see it.

We may also collect Personal Data at other points on Our Site and Service that state that Personal Data is being collected.

Information You Provide From Facebook And Other Social Networking Sites
If You are not currently registered as a user the Service, and You click on “Sign In” using Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, GitHub, or another SNS that We support, You will first be asked to enter Your SNS credentials and then be given the option to register for the Service. In this case, We may receive information from that SNS to make it easier for You to create an Account on the Site. Any information that We collect from Your SNS account may depend on the privacy settings You have with that SNS, so please consult the SNS privacy and data practices.

Information Collected Via Technology
Information Collected by Our Servers. To make Our Site and Service more useful to You, Our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from You, including Your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to Your computer when You use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for Your visit.

Log Files. As is true of most websites, We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about Our user base as a whole, and better tailor Our Site and Service to Our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when You visit the Site or use Our Service again, it will recognize You and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to Your interests. Except as noted in this Privacy Policy, We do not link this automatically-collected data to Personal Data.

Cookies. Like many online services, We use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to Your computer’s hard drive while You are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once You close Your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on Your computer until You delete them) to provide You with a more personal and interactive user experience. This type of information is collected to make Our Site and Service more useful to You and to tailor the experience with Us to meet Your special interests and needs.

Pixel Tags. In addition, We use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow Us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that We are sending only messages that are of interest to Our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a User. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to Our users’ Personal Data.

Flash LSOs. When We post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as “Flash Cookies,” to store Your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features. Flash Cookies are different from browser Cookies because of the amount and type of data and how the data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by Your browser will not remove Flash Cookies. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash Cookies, click here:

Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the Site. Google Analytics uses Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the Site and use Services, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to Our Site. We use the information We get from Google Analytics only to improve Our Site and Service. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to You on the date You visit the Site, rather than Your name or other personally identifying information. We do not combine the information generated through the use of Google Analytics with Your Personal Data. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent Cookie on Your web browser to identify You as a unique user the next time You visit the Site and use Services, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about Your visits to the Site and use of Services is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.

Information Collected From You About Others
If You decide to invite a third party to create an Account, We will collect Your and the third party’s names and e-mail addresses in order to send an e-mail and follow up with the third party. We may maintain this information indefinitely in Our database and may also use this information to help us establish networks of contacts, document relationships, facilitate referrals, and improve Our Services. We may also use this information to show You and other users that You may know each other or have shared contacts. We rely upon You to obtain whatever consents from the third party that may be required by law to allow us to access and upload the third party’s names and e-mail addresses as required above. You or the third party may contact Us at [email protected] to request the removal of this information from Our database. The e-mail that is sent to Your friends will come from Your e-mail address so that Your friends know that You want to invite to Our Site and Service.

Information Collected From Address Book and Contact Importing
You may use Our address book and contacts importer to upload Your contacts from other services into Counter. When You import Your contacts, We may indefinitely store the contact information in Our database, including Your contacts' names, e-mails, phone numbers, locations, and relationships to You, subject to applicable law. We do not store any passwords You provide as part of the contact import process.

After We import Your contacts, We will use this information to help Us establish networks of contacts, document relationships, facilitate referrals, and improve Our Site and Service. We may also use this information to show You and other users that You may know each other or have shared contacts. We rely upon You to obtain whatever consents from the relevant third parties that may be required by law to allow Us to access and upload the third parties’ names, e-mail addresses, and other contact information. You or such a third party may contact Us at [email protected] to request the removal of this information from Our database.

Information Collected From Third Party Companies
We may receive Personal and/or Anonymous Data about You from companies that provide Our Service by way of a co-branded or private-labeled website, companies that offer their products and/or services through Our Services, and/or companies that otherwise collect such information. These third party companies may supply Us with Personal Data. We may add this information to the information We have already collected from You via Services in order to improve Services We provide to You.
