When you register or interact with our Services, contact us for support, enter a contest, promotion or respond to a survey or poll, or submit information to us directly, we ask you to provide certain personal information including a valid email address. We will also ask you to provide additional information such as your first and last name, username, physical location and billing address, telephone number, business information, or profile information.

We also automatically collect information about you and your use of the Services using log processes, IP address, cookies, device and connection information, browser information and web-log information, URLs of the pages you visit, date and time stamps associated with such browsing, searches, and clicks. We automatically collect clickstream data, meaning the page by page clicks that you make as you navigate through our Services, including the web page visited before you came to our Services.

We collect all communications recorded by Users through the Site, location-identifying technologies, and other tracking technologies. Certain information is collected about you from third parties, such as when you connect through a third-party service.

We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Services and for our technical team, to enhance the user experience of our Services, and to better tailor the Services to our visitors’ needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Services meet the criteria required to process their requests. We may aggregate, analyze, and evaluate this information, and such aggregate data is not treated as personal information.

Once you register, your username and certain information is made public and may be visible to Users of the Site. For Merchants, this information includes photos you upload, your published listings, and additional information you may choose to add to your profile. Please be aware that certain information, such as your username and profile, together with the content uploaded by you, will be publicly displayed when you use such features.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Data Retention

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

MainStroll will retain your personal information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which the information is processed. The length of time for which we retain personal information depends on the purpose for which we collect and use it or as required to comply with applicable laws and to establish, exercise, or defend our legal rights.
