Faves collects User submitted account information such as name and email address to identify you and send you notifications related to your use of the Faves software. Faves also collects User submitted location information such as city, state or zip code, and User submitted comments and ratings about the various Fave which you create. All such User submitted data is collected and stored at Faves’ or its agent’s facilities for possible aggregation, sale and/or provision to third parties. If such aggregated data is sold, no personally identifying information about any User, such as name or email, will be supplied to the third party.
Additionally, some information we collect is not explicitly submitted by the User. For instance, we log your browser-type related information, IP address, requested and referring URLs and timestamp. This information helps us diagnose problems with our servers, administer support, and otherwise provide the highest possible level of service to you.
Information such as your full name or email address may be shown to your Buddies or other Users primarily in conjunction with Faves you have contributed and designated as being available for viewing by the general public. If you have designated another User as a Friend they can also see your name or email address in their list of Buddies.
Your full name and email address may also be used when you send an email notification to another User, such as in a request for faving activity, in an invitation, when sharing a Fave, or when forwarding a request. Faves may also use your email address to send you updates or news regarding our site. You can opt out of receiving such communications by emailing email@example.com. Additionally, we may use your email address to contact you on behalf of your Buddies (such as when a Friend asks for a Fave).
Like most websites, Faves requires cookies to function properly. Cookies are small data files that are sent to and reside on a User's computer and identify you as a unique User. This identification helps us better understand our user base, refine our software and website and simplify our User’s experiences. We believe our cookies improve the quality of our services, however, you can reset your browser so that it refuses all cookies, or notifies you when a cookie is being sent.

Your Faves account is password-protected. We take reasonable precautions to protect our Users' information, use industry standard measures to protect information that is stored within our database and limit the access to your information to those employees who need access to perform their job function.
