pages, features, content, mobile applications, and any other services we offer
from time to time in connection with any of the foregoing (collectively, the
"Website"), you agree to the practices and policies set forth in this
personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that we
gather when you are accessing or using our Website. This policy does not apply

of those companies through our Website.

personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such
persons to register for the Services (as that term is defined in our Terms of
Use). If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services
or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address,
telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any

II. WHAT INFORMATION DOES O&F COLLECT?
We gather various types of Personal
Information from our users, as explained more fully below. We may use this
Personal Information to, among other things, personalize and improve our
services, allow our users to set up a user account and profile, contact users,
fulfill your requests for certain products and services, analyze how users
share certain types of Personal Information with third parties (as described in
this Section and in Section III below). We collect the following types of
A. Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you
knowingly provide to us. For example, we collect Personal Information such as
your name, username, phone number, credit card and other billing information,
email address, shipping address, and your friends’ email addresses (which we
will only use in order to invite them to use the Service). We may also collect
information you supply to us regarding your personal preferences and interests.
You can choose not to provide us with any or all of the information we specify
or request, but then you may not be able to register with us or to take
advantage of some or all of our features.
We may anonymize your Personal Information
so that you cannot be individually identified and provide that anonymized
information to our partners. For example, we allow advertisers to choose the
demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and you
agree that we may use any of the information we have collected from you in
non-personally identifiable form to allow our advertisers to select the
appropriate audience for those advertisements. We might use the fact you have
purchased or inquired about a certain brand of apparel, for instance, to show
you advertisements for the company that sells that brand, but we will not tell
that company who you are.
B. Information Collected Automatically:
- Whenever you interact with our
Website, we automatically receive and record information on our server
logs from your browser including your IP address, “cookie” information,
and the page you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your
computer or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and
tell us how and when pages in our Website are visited and by how many
people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or
device to prevent or limit your computer’s or device’s acceptance of
cookies, but doing so may prevent you from taking advantage of our
Website’s best features. Our advertising partners may transmit cookies to
your computer or device when you click on ads that appear on our site.
- When we collect usage information
(such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website), we only
use such data in aggregate form, in a manner that assures your anonymity.
We may provide this aggregate usage information to our partners; our
partners may use such information to understand how often and in what ways
people use our Website, so that our partners, too, can endeavor to provide
you with an optimal online experience.
C. E-mail and Other Communications:
We may contact you, by email or other
means. For example, we may send you promotional offers on behalf of other
businesses, or communicate with you about your use of the Website. Also, we may
receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. If you do not want to

Websites We Do Not Control:
In certain situations, businesses or third
party websites we’re affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you
through the Website (either alone or jointly with us). You can recognize when
an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and we
will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the
extent that we deem it related to such transaction or service

perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to
provide products or services to you. Unless we inform you otherwise, our agents
do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond
what we deem necessary to assist us in performing such tasks.
C. User Profiles and Content:
Certain user profile information, including
without limitation a user’s username and the image content that such user has
uploaded to the website may be displayed to other users to facilitate user
interaction within the Website or address your request for our services. Any
content you upload to your public user profile, along with any Personal
Information or content that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner other
users can view (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, etc.) becomes
publicly available, and can be collected and used by others. Your username may
also be displayed to other users if and when you post comments or upload images
through the Website and other users can contact you through such comments.
D. Business Transfers:
We may choose to buy or sell assets. In
these types of transactions, customer information (which may include your
Personal Information) is typically one of the business assets that is
transferred. Also, if we (or substantially all of our assets) are acquired, or
if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, Personal Information would be one
of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
E. Protection of O&F and Others:
We may release Personal Information when we

exchange information with other companies and organizations (including
governmental authorities) for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
