Information We Collect

  • Personal Information. Chippmunk does not collect any Personal Information if you perform basic searches on the Site without registering for an account. However, if you do create an account, send us an email, or share personal information with us in any other way, we will collect the information you provide. This information may collect include your name, email address, phone number or other contact information. We will refer to that type of information as your “Personal Information.” You do not have to share your Personal Information with us but without it we will not be able to personalize the Site for you, and you will not be able to access many of our Services. You can change the Personal Information in your profile by logging into your account.

  • Content. We may offer the ability to post content (“Content”) that is visible to other users. Chippmunk may collect and use your Content as described in the Terms of Service.

  • Automatic Collection. Like most web businesses, we may use cookies, pixels, web beacons and other automated mechanisms to keep track of user interactions with our website and other Services and with any ads we place on third party properties. We may collect information such as your mobile device’s UDID and/or other persistent identifiers, your computer’s IP address, the type of browser you are using, the websites you visit and the type of content and ads you click on. We may also use third party services such as Google Analytics to gather and analyze user information. If you give us permission to use your location data, we may collect, use and share such data as well.
