INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect information to provide a better Service to all of our users.

In other circumstances, CHOUXBOX, like most website operators, will collect non-personally identifiable information. We use this information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of a visitor’s interaction with the Service. When registering for an account with our Service (a “CHOUXBOX Account”), we receive and store personally identifiable information you enter or provide to us in any other way. The types address and zip code, and any other data that is tied to such information (collectively, the “Personal Information”). We will not disclose Personal Information other than as described in this Policy. Of course, you can always refuse to provide Personal Information, but doing so may prevent you from using some or all of our Service. When you log in to an CHOUXBOX Account and interact with our Service, we may automatically collect and store information that has the potential to be personally identifiable, such as your Internet Protocol (IP address). We only use and disclose user IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose Personal Information under this Policy. When using a part of our Service, we may also collect, and you may also provide, non-personally identifiable information related to which part of our Service you are using and how you are using it, like when you view, interact with, or provide text, graphics, images, music, software (excluding the Application), audio, video, information, data and other materials (collectively “Content”).

Also, web browsers and servers typically make available certain non-personally identifiable information like system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, date and time of a visitor’s request and referral URL, and other technologies. This information may be stored on our server logs. We collect this information in order to better understand how our visitors interact with and use our Service, and to improve and carry out our Service.
