We may also obtain general location when you input your zip code or use location features on the Services, such as to find nearby merchants. This information allows us to give you access to content that varies based on your general location. If we collect precise GPS location information through your device, we will ask your permission first. You can disable sharing precise geolocation information in your device settings.
Please note certain information, such as precise geolocation information or biometric, is considered “sensitive” under certain laws, and this information is collected in accordance with applicable legal requirements.
Information We Collect from Social Media Platforms or Single Sign On Services
If you log in using social media credentials or single sign on (such as Google or Facebook), depending on your settings, we may receive certain information to enable such sign on, such as an authentication token or your username or email.

We may combine, compile or connect the personal data we collect from you, through automated means, from social media and/or from the above-mentioned other sources. Where personal data is disclosed to us by third parties, we take steps to ensure that these third parties are legally permitted to disclose your personal data to us.
