The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Website. In connection with the Website, we request and display some personal information to other users and visitors of the Website, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our users.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Website or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, email address, city, country, IP address, and browser information. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of certain features. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users, improving the content of the Website, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Website or services. Code Fellows automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Code Fellows only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Website or services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many users as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, Code Fellows never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Code Fellows if your computer supports this type of program. Code Fellows uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful, and to improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please contact us.

Protection of Code Fellows and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Code Fellows, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
